I noticed on Walter’s Blog that Bike Friday has a new folding Tikit style stem for their pocket bikes like my NWT. This does two things for you:
- it allows you to the fold a Bike Friday Travel bike much faster than previously.
- it keeps the stem/bars in place when folded so you can carry the folded bike easily.
If you are a bike commuter who wants the beefier more touring worthy ride of a Bike Friday travel bike, but needs some of the Tikit’s fast convenient fold this may be the upgrade for you.
