Meet Hidalgo, the newest member of our bike family.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, how many bikes do they need? Well, I need one. And John needs one. And our guests could use at least one.

That’s where this little feller comes in.  I’m not sure why, but I got it in my head that a folding bike is the perfect guest bike.  I mean, it FOLDS up!  It’s not going to be in the way or anything. And if I want to bring a bike home or something, I have this little guy.

He fits in my trunk.  He’s surprisingly well kept, hardly used by his former owners (who also had a twin of his for sale).  And he has 3 speeds with an internally geared hub.  And a coaster brake that I need to practice on.

Did I mention his inaugural ride was to go pick up a pizza? That’s right, Hidalgo is capable of great feats.

So now you all can come to my apartment and ride my bikes. It’ll be grand.
