A Solo Bike Tour in Taiwan

[EDITOR’S NOTE: Here’s a short article and link to some great photos from a Bike Friday customer.]

By Yang Cheng-Hsieh

Sometimes I like the freedom of solo travel. I don’t need to wait for
others. I can take a rest break whenever I want and ride at my own
speed.  On the last day before winter vacation ended, suddenly the
weather turned good.  I seized the opportunity to tour solo on my BIKE
FRIDAY to see the beautiful spring Sakura (cherry blossoms) and enjoy
the feeling of wandering.

I really like my diamond frame Bike Friday, which I got from the U.S.
I got a  TravelCase and Trailer for it in Taiwan.

I traveled through the Ruifang disctrict of New Taipei City, northeast
of Taipei, to Pingxi – famous for the Lantern Festival, Shuangxi,
Chinkuashih ? location of the Gold Ecological Park, and the Jiufen
mountains. My trip was very leisurely, over Shiping road, a beautiful
road through the mountains with views of maple leaves in autumn and
cherry blossoms in spring.

Enjoy the photos!

Momentum magazine review: tikit

1st Class tikit

The March/April issue of Momentum magazine just hit our mailbox, and it has a review of the 1st Class tikit.

Reviewer Gwendal Castellan wrote:

“Riding the tikit felt fast and zippy, the core of the frame is incredibly stiff and responsive. All the flex of the bike was in the seat post and the head post, which smoothed out the bumps in the road. The tikit was one of the faster folding bikes that I have tested. The Nexus eight-speed hub was problem-free and provided a broad range of speeds that met the needs of riding in a hilly city.

Read the whole review here.

The 1st Class tikit was our 2011 tikit with the Select Group. This year’s 2012 tikit with the Select Group is the Future’s tikit with belt drive technology,
