I think ‘folders’ are very user friendly and with 20 in wheels strong enough to light tour on.
Here is my little bike on Harwich Railway Station, I had just crossed two rivers on two little ferries without any difficulties whatsoever, way to go!

(My query should be in touring section :oops: )
I presume camping ? How did you get to start and back from finish ?
You'll never know if you don't try it.

Happy Birthday to me...
Been riding this for the last few weeks and out in yesterdays sunshine for it's first hundred miler. It goes wherever you point it in smooth comfort, as long as you're not in a hurry. It's also been earning it's keep as my Deliveroo bike, probably a bit OTT for that, but why not...

I’m curious. Where does to cable under the top tube cone from/ go to? It looks like it comes out of the fork crown and goes to the pannier rack!

Ha! Well spotted - It's the dynamo cable threaded through some 6mm tubing. Not only is it tough, it utilises the unused front mech cable bosses.

Something different. My bikes over the last 37 years. Notice any similarities?

All have a rear rack, diamond possibly all steel frames, derailer gears.

Yes, it was the rear racks. They are all steel frames except for the Scott.

n+1, sort of, maybe.

Mrs gaz doesn't use this one much anymore. So, longer seatpost, a new saddle and a few other tweaks.

Probably needs a little more work to optimise the cable runs. Ideally I'd change it to drops and fit SPDs. That's more expense than I can justify and a lot of extra faff should Mrs gaz want to use it again. Simple enough to swap back the original seatpost and saddle.

I'll see how it goes.
