Last year when we did our 8 month trip over to WA we took our full sized bicycles with us on a rack beside the roof mounted boat. It prooved to be too hard and awkward to get them up and down so when we were in Alice Springs we left them in storage at another BT owners home.

We were still keen to have bicycles with us so I started looking at the various types of folding bicycles available and last Saturday ventured down to Brisbane to inspect some.

We returned home with 2 new full sized bicycles in our Magna sedan.

If anyone is interested in getting folding bicycles we went to ONYERBIKE who have a web site of www.onyerbike.com.au .

The bicycles that we chose are the "Terminator 1" model with 24 speed gears, and disc brakes with shock absorbers front and rear.
The company owner, Darren was a pleasure to deal with and through in a few extras as we purchased 2 from him.

After a couple of quick rides around the local area we ventured off down to Noosa main beach this morning and found them to be much more comfortable to ride than other bikes that we have owned or used.

But i told you about those Bikes months ago Stewart no excuses now, LOL.

Ive already got the vacuum cleaner, coffee maker, navigation & dishwasher covered with my one live in maid, trouble is she [Vick] will send me up a creek in a kayak without a paddle and blast me with a SAM to the moon if i dont stop spending money :-)

But i love helping others spend theirs ;-)))

We have 2 Dahon Speed P8 with 20" wheels we love and use minimum 4 times a week. The large tyres act like suspension with rolling resistence of those thin racing tyres. Happy to highly recommed the bikes.

I know the prices appear dear, but having just looked at some ordinary bikes at the local bike shop for close to $500, these are a far stronger bike and are made from Aircraft grade aluminuim or stainless steel.

We bought the Terminator 1 model as they had the much better disc brakes and stonger frame than the base model. $1195.00. But when we bought 2 we got about $150 of extras.

We have found a problem with these new bicycles.

Since buying them last week we have been riding them down to the beach and parking them outside the Noosa Beach Surf Club.

The problem that we have found that they attract people in much the same way as Bushtracker Caravans do, and you have a lot of people admiring them and asking questions about them.

After a week of riding them we are more than pleased with them.
