Gareth got a lovely new Tikit with disc brakes, dyno hub and Shimano Alfine IGH.  His bike looks great and I’m looking forward to hearing how it works for him.  You can read his intial impressions here.

Congrats Gareth keep us posted…=-)

Rode to work today – even more impressed. The H bars are miles more comfortable than the standard straight bars and with the disc brakes finger sensitive it is possible to stop from a relatively slow speed with your hands on the ends.

Does the disc brake caliper get in the way once the Tikit is folded?

Is the disc rotor in any danger to be bent when the rear end of the Tikit folds forward?

Sorry for the delay in replying TC2

I don’t think so. I think there is more risk of rotor damage from other passengers when using it on the train. I keep a look out for people wanting to ram luggage in the spot next to the bike.

That said the braking performance is fabulous – full on power when needed, great modulation otherwise.
