Waiting for my Pakit

Put my money down as I have always admired what Bike Friday does and have done fittings on multiple Friday owners so I know how well the product is built. Nearing retirement so my plan is to take in what sights Washington DC has to offer so taking the Pakit on the Metro and riding to various sites is why I bought this bike because I have no desire to ride from home to downtown and then back home when I can use the Pakit to expand my travel circle and places to see. Can't wait to get my bike in 2017 and I have no illusions on how it compares to my road bikes as this is a whole different type of machine......GOOD JOB FRIDAY ENGINEERS.

I'm excited to be a future owner of a pakiT

I live a couple of hours away from Eugene, so yesterday I decided to drive down to visit BikeFriday. I wanted to test ride a pakiT. My phone battery was dead, so I couldn't take pictures or a video 🙁 . The pakiT that I test rode was a medium size frame with a glacier color and single speed belt drive.In a nutshell, my impression of the pakiT is that we made an AWESOME purchase! The bike is super light and has a great ride. This will be my first folding bike and first BikeFriday. The person at BikeFriday adjusted the saddle to fit me for the test ride. I rode through the bike path around the back of the factory that goes into downtown Eugene. The bike was pretty responsive. Most of the time when I was just looking ahead or at my surroundings, I couldn't tell that I was riding a folding bike because the ride was smooth and felt just like a regular bike. The only difference was the silence! The belt drive is really silent. I was able to ride fast despite the small 16" wheels. I rode through a bit of gravel and bumpy (nearby tree roots) to see how much I would feel the bumps on the ground. I was able to feel gravel or big bumps on the ground more than I do in my current bike (26" wheels). When I was riding in the bike path or street the 16" wheels were perfectly fine. The last noticeable difference for me was the length of the handlebar. Due to the size of the pakiT the handlebar is smaller than what I'm used to. That is not a big downside for me, but I think I could get used to it after riding the pakiT a few times. I'm excited to be a future owner of pakiT.

"The pakiT is the best bike ever... I just finished a 28 mile ride in Germany on the 3 speed pakiT. The great road feel and handling of the bike, plus the light weight, made it a dream on the ride"
