I like the bike and the fantastic customer service!

You can read details about my experience with the New World Tourist on my Web page, www.cs.unc.edu/~barman/bikeFriday.html. I was first drawn to the bike as being a high quality bicycle that I (5'3") could fit on, and when I read strong reviews in both "Bicycling" and "Adventure Cyclist," I started working with Green Gear to put together a custom bike for me.

My recommendation is to get the NWT with the thin tires that come with the Pocket Rocket. It is amazing how you can pack the bike in a suitcase and yet how the bicycle gives a great ride. I really applaud Green Gear for being customer-centric - they're great in helping answer any questions or with making upgrades. Great customer service, high quality product! Bravo!

Great bike. Outstanding service.

The NWT has been my commuting bike for the past four years. Each commute involves two folds and unfolds plus 10-15 miles (rain or shine). Despite the heavy use the bike still performs very well.

If you plan to get a NWT keep in mind that it may require more maintenance compared to a regular bike. Also, get the best headset you can afford. The rest of the components matter less and are easy to upgrade later on.

I have the Pocket Llama, customized to my request which means a 54/42 front sprocket and a 12-28 rear cluster (rather than the internal 7-speed rear hub). In gear inches, with the 20-inch wheels, this gives me a 30-98 inch range, which makes the bike a great "climber" but not much for "down hill" speed. I prefer not too high downhill speeds with the small wheels, so I consider my Friday an excellent, all around, bike.
