Why a Tikit?

My Reasons

This video highlights one of the key reasons I wanted to get my hands on a Bike Friday Tikit - the effortless fold. Unlike my Dahon there is no requirement to mess with QR levers or adjust the seatpost, steerer or handlebars. After every unfold the Tikit's saddle & bars are in exactly the same spot...=-)

The another reason is the ability to get the Tikit in one of three frame sizes [small, medium or large]. I can ride my Dahon without problem, but the one size fits all approach does not result in an optimal cockpit.

Finally the reviews suggest the Tikit rides like a full sized bike with excellent handling.
