...how about a folding wheel?
horrid web page, why does the text have to be rammed into the left side like that, unacceptable
Why have a folding wheel? My tyres go flat all the time...
The biggest problem to me is that it isn't going to work on a typical folder.
Who wants to take the wheels off everyday in order to put on a train/bus as part of your commute?
It's a good idea for a bike that lives in a bag in your boot, for occasional holidays when you might want a bike
But as a practical use everyday commuters folder, there's no way I'm going to take the wheels off. Even if they then fold up small.
I don't know if it's going to be any use but it's neat.
nobody that ever had to fix a rear wheel puncture , that's for sure. taking the back wheel off a derailleur fitted bike knows what a pain in the arse that is.
I don't know...
I have an Airnimal in my stable, and an S&S coupled Thorn Nomad........
Both could possibly benefit from a folding whhel
I think it is this ====> shoot
I folded a wheel once, couldn't unfolding again though...
After a little practice it's quite quick and easy, that is until someone is watching and then difficulty quadruples!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yup, Keith! "The probability of failure is directly proportional to the number of people watching you work!" ;-)
