My 60th Present To Me - Something Nice And Grey: Update Sept/2011

Advantages: Comfort of a full sized bike, with most of the benefits of a folder.
Disadvantages: Expensive if you don't need a folder. No real off-road credentials.

September 2011 Update: I'll put this first since this is quite a long review and you might never get to see my longer term report on this bike, having dozed off! Having now done a couple of thousand miles on this bike over a year and a half (it's n ...

Review of Dahon Matrix 2009

Folds, but not very small and light

Advantages: Folds to put in boot of car, smooth ride, well built
Disadvantages: not that easy to carry around, Had to change grips (personal preference)

Review of Giant TCX3 cyclocross

KMX X Class 2007 can make you happy if you know why you need it

Advantages: solid frame, great stability, good-quality parts, easy to modify
Disadvantages: - steering is hard, adjustment of brakes is painful, centre of gravity is too far in front

Review of KMX X Class Bike

Dahon Speed D7 - Great little folding bike

Advantages: Tough, compact, easy to fold.
Disadvantages: Awkward to carry long distances.

The company I work for introduced the government "Cycle to Work" scheme just over 3 years ago. This scheme allows you to buy a bicycle ( up to the value of £1000 ) and pay for it monthly buy salary sacrifice, which means that the tax and national insuranc ...
