Can that one roll like a Brompton can or is the folded mode more for storing?

Also how many bikes do you have Kimbo?

It doesn't really roll, as the natural way to lug it around has the wheel going backwards and pulling the crank into some folded part of the frame.
You could push it around vertically like a unicycle, but not effectively.

Back when the kiddo was in daycare, this is how I got her there and back. She's six now and still loves this seat, even if she's too big for it.



Gunnar makes real nice frames. I need to ride this more.



... and this one. I need to ride on dirt more.

im so mumped up lmao

I don't usually take many pictures while I'm riding because I hate stopping and my phone camera kinda sucks, but I did take a few today.





Here's some more I've taken over a few years of riding. My first bike is in some of them but it's currently skeletal in the basement, having been cannibalized for its drivetrain and other bits when I redid the Cannondale earlier this year.

There was a wedding up in Wolfeboro, NH and instead of talk to people in the morning, I went for a bike ride.





I've done the Hub On Wheels ride twice and riding down an empty Storrow Drive in the beginning section is a blast. Once you get through the crowds it's just a straightforward speedway before you get to ride through some nice roads and paths around the city of Boston. Never knew about most of them and it's a good time.



Couple photos from somewhere in northeastern MA.



Sometimes you learn things while you're on a ride. I didn't know there were buffalo in MA but here they are, on a farm.


Rode up Mt. Wachusett with a friend.


This was before the new drivetrain but I just like this shot of the bike.


Rode with my brother recently and he managed to get an action shot of me. Bask in the glory of my fat rear end and thick calves.



Stayed up on the Pemigewasset River in NH for a weekend and, you guessed it, went for a bike ride. The road in the last few pictures was signed "Road not maintained - Travel at own risk" and they weren't kidding. The pictures make it look alright but a normal sedan wouldn't have made it through some sections. Not the best surface for carbon wheels and the amazing sidewalls of GP4k2 tires but I made it.






Kimbo and I did a double-metric century a couple years ago and, while I wasn't as strong as I had hoped to be, it was still a great time. He's a cool dude and I lust after that bike.

I believe this picture breaks all the rules except for the lack of reflectors.

I also ride at night, and gently caress you if you think I'm not leaving them on.

Preach. I ride at night on a regular basis, out in farm country where no one goes the speed limit and there is probably more than a fair share of impaired drivers. I'm doing most everything I can to be as visible as possible. I've taken them off a few bikes that I never ride at night, but for the most part I leave them on.

If you achieve impossible levels of Fred eventually you might come back around to being cool again.

dork disks will never be cool

No Lights They're really german, gently caress you.

Bonus Points:
In front of a good wall no, but there is a really pretty sewage treatment plant outlet there
Gold chain
Pro Fit I designed a custom bike to have a positive angle stem, just to piss you off

Negative Points:
Reflectors I'm actually pissed I don't have them on the rear wheel. 48hs don't do well with reflectors and they all fall off.
Dork Disk I have enough taste to remove that


(The fork with steerer is basically the longest that will fit in an S&S box, with fork removed).
