As Luck Would Have It...

In December, I bought for Tim a lifetime subscription to Momentum - the magazine for self-propelled people and my name was entered into a draw for a Dahon folding bike. What an amazing surprise to receive (on Finnegan's birthday) an email from the office manager at Momentum and learn I had won the bike! Today, a lovely new Dahon MU UNO folding bicycle arrived.

Keira and Finnegan were surprised to know that a bike could actually fit into a box this small!

It certainly folds up small and looks awesome when unfolded! I can't wait to try it out, although it may have to wait until the spring. I will likely bring it with me when I visit my good friend Natalie, in Ottawa this summer.

Tim is impressed by the fancy Schwalbe marathon racer tires. He did a review of them for BicycleSmile and it's on his bike blog as well.

Thanks so very much to Momentum and Dahon for this great new bike!
