WOW! Imagine my surprise!

Was working on the only thing my portable exercise (resistance bands) didn't come with so I am making it. (Has ankle bands but much more expensive one did not have ankle straps but had a whole folding platform to hook bands onto for "floor pulls").

Walked towards my truck to get my drill and counter-sink bits when I discovered this gem... due in a week to 10 days!

I assume the training wheels are arriving in a separate box later?

Nope. Separate box inside the big one!

Kewl!

Another reason to not live in Kalifornia, as if I didn't already have enough!

This topic led me to look at folding bikes, then electric folding bikes, and now electric scooters. I might go the scooter route. Takes minimal space, and plenty of range to run to a store shopping, etc.

Cool Grumpy!

My Brother's g.f. has a son who is up on scooters. Has one, waiting for a Kickstarter campaign to get deliver his next.

Happy to pick his brain if desired. I didn't try his. They do look like a good possibility in a CMV. I just think I'd want a more stable version. (OK, HOLD THE TRAINING WHEEL JOKES!)

Weak ankles and hey! I'm no kid. Bones break easier and heal slower!

CMV:

Commercial Motor Vehicle

A CMV is a vehicle that is used as part of a business, is involved in interstate commerce, and may fit any of these descriptions:

  • Weighs 10,001 pounds or more
  • Has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more
  • Is designed or used to transport 16 or more passengers (including the driver) not for compensation
  • Is designed or used to transport 9 or more passengers (including the driver) for compensation
  • Is transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placards

Marc, Actually I think you could get a motorized two wheeler to carry on the back of the cab. I know a bicycle is good exercise, but a motorized unit might be more fun.

At first, I hated my 34 hour breaks. Then I came around and looked forward to them. If I had a bike, motorized or not, I could have done a lot more exploring. Mixing some adventure into your driving will be very beneficial.

I will like to see the picture of this folding bike. I am from India and haven't seen a folding bike.

And the price seems very realistic to me.

Alex,

I can post some but really, if you just google Columba SP26S you can see pictures of all colors, videos, assembly video, folding and unfolding videos and more.

Overall I am very happy with the purchase. I have a couple of nits and upgrades I plan but for what it is, what it does and what it cost, I really couldn't be much happier.

Plan to take it to a local shop to get the wheels trued, brakes adjusted and see about ordering a longer seat post with suspension built in.

Put lights on it and took a several mile ride along our beautiful (Lake Michigan) shoreline / yacht harbor and met some interesting ladies. Sure beat vegging out in front of the tv and probably burned off most of my (large meal of the day) dinner!
