Nearly came in on the Saracen but needed some air in the tyres so ended up comming in on the Specialized instead :(. Pump was in the shed at the bottom of the garden & at 05:25am I couldn't be bothered to go & get it.......maybe tomorrow then for the Saracen :D

As my journey involves car, train and then bike, I had to get a folder for work.

Just couldn't bring myself to get a Brompton (or any other 20" wheeled version) so ended up with a Dahon Matrix...

Beggars can't be choosy.

I looked at Airnimal and Swissbikes too, but they were nowhere near as good when it comes to folding.

Have to say, I don't really get the remove all visible brakes thing.

Never have I regularly cycled or commuted, and thought to myself: "You know what this thing needs? Less brakes...".

its getting really big around my way. Was pulling up to some lights the other day as they were changing and a bunch on fixies screamed past trying to get across rather than brake, they were swerving through the traffic. The way its going, normal cyclists going to get a bad name

My work/travel bike, ... Cannondale F800SL converted into a fixed gear MTB.
After trying a lot of fixed gear frames and setups, I finally converted this Cad ant till now it's my favorite commuter all time ! :-)
