    Here's my current folding commuter bike: a Tern Verge S11i. In the winter (in Chicago) I ride my venerable Dahon Mu XL equipped with studded tires.

    Anyone got a Dahon Allegro?

    That's a bike I'd like to see reintroduced - but with bigger tyres.

    (Any chance of that, Thor?)

    Looks good. There's a dearth of folding bikes with full size wheels.

    First test ride on an electric bike; Tern Vektron P9.
    Seems nice; smooth and powerful:

    I rode one of these at the Outdoor Demo in Las Vegas last year and really enjoyed it. It really made the hills disappear. My current commuter bike is a Tern Verge S11i. The Vektron would probably be my choice to replace it if I were going electric. Since I'm in Chicago and it's relatively flat, that's a direction I probably won't be going in just now. There are a few places I have to carry the bike, and the Verge (at about 30 pounds) is heavy enough.

    It came about after a discussion in the local bike shop about what was the most "niche" bike.

    I thought about the various niche categories as I rode home, singlespeed, fixed wheel, recumbent, folding, odd wheel sizes, 69ers, vintage replicas etc, and the proverbial light bulb above the head lit up - "I can do that".

    It was actually quite simple, I only had to fabricate one part, and that was simply cutting 2 tubes to length and drilling a few holes. Everything else was bodged to fit.

    So at least locally, I had the most "niche" bike - a recumbent fixed wheel folding ordinary 36/20er.

    If you have a spare Dahon frame and fancy replicating it, click through the pics and you'll see how dead simple it was to build.



    I might add, it's not the best handling of frankenbikes, but no one gets off it without a big grin.

    Was out for a ride to Loch Ness at the weekend with a group of small wheel enthusiasts, mainly on Moultons. Gave a few of them a shot at riding my Dahon Hammerhead - they couldn't believe how good it was, and were surprised that it is not a current model.

    (Slightly modified: Rolf wheels, unitary carbon bar and stem, and I removed the gears from new so it's a singlespeed (Magic Ratio - no adjustment).
