    Foldable bike for safe storage at work

    Anyone ride a "foldie" to work so that they can safely store bike in their office?

    new job is good location for a commute, but bad bike storage in the area.

    i have enough space to store a foldie around my desk. Thought if I get one with racks I could use my panniers. Commute is 15k and has a decent descent and climb.

    brand new to commuting but long time cyclist

    thx

    Don't have a foldie but I do hang around with a group of foldies. They have Moultons, Bromptons, Stridas, Dahons and some Chinese made replicas of the given brands. They can't seem to convince me to go foldie because I really feel stupid riding one. So I'm the only MTB riding with a group of foldies. The envy began when we went to a mall after a ride to get refreshments when I had to look for bike parking but they carried their foldies with them.

    They're surprisingly fast but not surprisingly, very twitchy. And yes, they do bring their foldies to work. They're even allowed to board the city train with it.

    Check out the 'Post your commuter' sticky. Somebody just posted a nice folder with pics at work.
    The ridiculousness of cycling clothes increase exponentially in relation to the distance from your bicycle.
