In a post about my trip to Alaska last year, I described how I kept finding myself wanting to ride my bike – but my own bike was all the way back in Ohio. I was able to rent a couple of bikes – but one by no means knows what they are going to get when they rent a bike, assuming rental bikes are even accessible. It was on that trip that I decided I genuinely wanted to get a bike that I could travel with. Following looking into a couple of diverse alternatives, I chose a Bike Friday. Let me tell what possibilities I looked at, and why I chose the Bike Friday.
This heavy-duty case produced with thermoformed ABS plastic, holds any bike frame and a pair of wheels, which includes larger and far more complicated road and mountain bikes, with area leftover for your further gear and tools. It has an Aluminum frame with internal stabilizer that secures and suspends the bike frame to defend it from harm for the duration of transit. Thick and soft, open-cell foam covers the whole inner wall surface for further help. Lock it up with 4 latches, position it employing the four grab handles and use the flip-up manage to assist you roll it to your destination, on four precision ball bearing wheels.
Hmmm, I typically see couples touring with the lady carrying almost everything, even hauling a trailer even though the man often has small or absolutely nothing on his bike.
