Welcome to the fold, or how I stopped worrying and learned to love the collapsible bike.

C'mon.  Admit it. You love to hate the folding bike. The hate's out there, it's real.  Folders are vilified, you can feel it, it's tangible.  You can cut it like a knife.  I've read the vitriol unleashed on our favourite dork-mobiles when folding bikes are the topic of discussion, and I can't pretend it doesn't hurt just a little bit.

But baby, I've got a Strange Love...


And circus bear is the new black.

Everybody loves to hate a folder, but don't be obtuse.  Nerds are hot, too.


Hey baby, what's your sine?


It's waaaaaay beyond edgy.  It's angled.

Plus it glows in the dark.  How cool is that?

It's attractiveness hinges on its ability to fold, but how many people really make the connection?

yep
  dorks r us anonymous

  make your connection
but
please, Captain, not in front of the Klingons

    1. Oh dear God THAT would be a fiasco. I'm inept at the best of time, never mind in front of a camera...

      But we were planning to film a Downtown to the North Shore commute, just to see how long it takes, and I'll have to fold it then, so stay tuned for a laugh...

    It is an attention getting shade of green.

    1. That's my fav, too. The man likes the first one better cause he thinks I look like a superhero coming to the rescue of the beleagured folder.

      I think that one would be better with tin tits.

    2. ...i'm seeing those 'tinnies' (tin-tins ???) in the old betty page conical, pointed bra, style...maybe even the extreme 'madonna' version...

      ...superhero, ultra-vixen, the 'cuntess of bikes'...

  5. ...& by the way...if i was cycling country music star, i'd write an original song called 'the commuter' & it would go something like -
    ..."...you got to know when to hold 'em,
    know when to fold 'em,
    know when to walk away,
    know when to ride..."
    ...

    ...ya, that's what i'd do...

  6. I especially like the one where you are bent over. Your attractiveness is in your ability to fold. Plus I could wipe my junk off on your boots when I am done instead of running off with juice-a-flingin' all Ostrich style.

    1. Thank you. I am rather bendy...

      Beware the boots, though. I swear they're still alive sometimes. You'd want to be careful not to get bit.

    3. I see you've had some experience with wild pussies. So on top of your natural ability in the graphic arts, you are also a lion tamer?

      Delete
    4. I think it's spelled lyin' tamer. The female lioness is the alpha female of any pride. They HAVE to be strong but still, late at night they need that physical touch that all pussies crave. I have neither chair nor whip. But what I do have is an unquenchable thirst for sweet vajayjay nectar and the soft touch to make it percolate.
