25th August 2011 – Freedom!

Thursday August 25, 2011

It’s Thursday the 25th of April and the Dahon broke free from the confines of the house and ventured out!

Yes, it’s true, it’s the end of August and this is the first time this year that I have been out on my bikes.  Crazy, huh?!  I had a day off last Thursday and gave the Dahon a clean and oiled the chain.  I checked the bolts were tight, the handlebar was straight and made sure the tyres were pumped up.  It was ready to go.

Tonight I went out for dinner and the Dahon was the transport.  It was really great to be out there on the bike – I had forgotten how much fun it is to ride the little folder.  With my NiteRider fully charged, the ride home in the dark was even more fun:  I was weaving along from side to side on a country lane (not used by cars) like we used to do when we were kids.

Ahh, I’ve missed cycling.  🙂



Urban Velo’s D7HG Review

Tuesday July 29, 2008

Urban Velo

I’ve just found a good review of the Vitesse D7HG over at Urban Velo

Their review was posted in July and as I wasn’t intending on buying a D7HG I hadn’t seen it prior to my trip to the bike shop.  UV’s initial impressions seem very good and one thing that caught my eye was the fact which they point out about the gear systems in that “…you can shift gears while coasting or when stopped“.  Interesting.

I’ll keep an eye on their blog for their update on the review and longer-term use.
