Bike For the Plane?
This is an update on the above topic, the last entry of which was in
August, 2004. It appears that the "Reply" option goes away at some
point - thus this was entered as a new topic.
Anyway, I had been on the lookout for a suitable folding bike - and
recently came across one that looked like it would fill the bill. It's
called the Bazooka Navigator, and is a full suspension 21 speed
aluminum folding mountain bike with 26" wheels. I did a Google search
for the best price, and ordered one for $325 plus shipping.
I have had it for a few days now, and so far am quite pleased with it.
The folding mechanism seems solid, and is easy to use. The pedals fold
as well, and there is a neat stowing arrangement (on the frame
downtube) for the handle bars when folded.
I can't tell you about how it fits into a typical airplane yet, because
I and my plane are separated by about 2500 miles at the moment (it does
fit into the trunk of my car nicely, though). Having tried small-wheel
folders, I wouldn't have anything other than a full size bike. If you
are in the market for such a bike, this one is worth checking out
(IMHO). Do a Google search for info.
