Really impressed with the quality of these bikes. An excellent alternative to taking my own bike on the train which is not popular during rush hour. The best thing, methinks the bus and taxi drivers have been warned to give PLENTY of space for these bikes. Not had one incident in the past week or. They don't want the bad press to be the first to run over a Weegie Wheeler! Is this the same elsewhere? Bath, London etc, I'm just loving this honeymoon period.

Glad it's working.
I find because of my size I can only ride my own bike, so if I couldn't get it on the train, that's it. :( I wonder if it takes the pressure off the argument for cycling provision on trains if there are hire bikes?

Good point about the trains. I think that's what the want us to do. Leave your bike at your local them get a hire bike at the other end. Absolutely no problem with this. It works so far because it's all new so there's plenty of rentals available on the other side.
