|Famous brand.. and does it really cut it? Yes!
|Bro Al with his first BF Tikit
Bike Friday is a small custom folding bicycle company that clearly have pride in what they do. Their designs might not look snazzy nor have the more flashy paint job... but the bike geometry and materials used are tried and tested. The magic is really in the ride.
|George Lim aka Encik. He is the "VMax" BF Pocket Rocket Pro rider
Also Uncle KC, another Legend who can ride like the wind. He is an gold standard that age does not matter... Check his bling Lama "tai tai"

Most of my bikes are made like a B52. They can cruise long hours, slowly. They are heavy but comfortable. Case in point the Moulton TSR and Tokyo bike. So the plan would be that the pocket rocket would be the bike if George wants to do an "easy" (it is actually very tiring and shagg) ride.
It is the fastest of the stable, components are Shimano Ulterega, Tyrel AM9 rim(roll very well), Durano tyres and Brooks Swift(bloody hard but now better). If you ask me again, I would strongly suggest to get a Brook Swallow(supposely no need to break in)
|handle bars are split to make it easier to pack. I don't know yet.. as I have never done it before
|11-25 rear cassette and yes I like my bike clean
|nice and strong crank by Shimano
|Speedy Tyrel 458 wheelset... its zippy!
|Ultergra Shifters work well
|The brakes stop relatively well with good feel.
|My Gentle hero charm and pig talisman to keep me safe. Thats also a bright rear light
Mr Pocket pocket also complaining that I seldom take him out. Perhaps it is time for a taiwan trip with him... gulp... :) Can I make it up the Taiwan mountains and slopes..... finger crossed...
Now enjoy more photos of my Steath pocket rocket.
|Goose neck for stiffness. Luckily it can be adjusted for height, so if too tired I can raise it higher
|Its a zippy ride!
