I'm on year 4 with my Tikit. Many many many folds and bumpy roads
later she's in prime shape. When I bought it I wasn't sure if the BF
design would be great in the long term, but the effortless fold sold
me and now that I am looking back years later I can say it's a design
that has stood the test of time. I expect I'll be riding my Tikit on
its 10yr anniversary.
