B'twin Tilt 940 - there are none, now going for a Brompton. I am far too excited about it.

    They always were a secretive lot in Edinburgh. Hiding things is second nature to them.

    I was told they'd let me know within a week a good 3 weeks ago. Meanwhile, I looked at the Decathlon website and found no 940s listed. With luck, your Decathlon is more reliable than mine and the website.

    I've asked about these before, it has some really thoughtful touches, but nobody seems to own one................I don't think it's heavy, same as the Dahons I've owned and I've managed to carry two, one of each shoulder, when Mrs F and I go on breaks. I recall the magazine reviews and videos when it was first released and love to have an actual owner review.

    I wonder if the Beast from the East has led to nobbers not being able to get to work and assemble my bike?
    If not, there's only a week to go. :okay:

    Hello

    No intro yet but it will come.

    Edinburgh still have that 940 but they have robbed the lights from it along with the wiring.
    I looked at it but didn`t like the frame, and they only offered £20 off due to it being incomplete.

    Still there though.

    It does appear to be the only one available in the UK so it's now a collector's item....

    First commute today on the nobber bike, and I must have looked the part as several people looked in my direction and mouthed "t*sser" as I glided past them.
