Bike Friday Pocket Rocket Pro



History:
When I arrived at Bike Friday I needed a sportier bike to use alongside my trusty Pocket Rocket which was
set up for commuting. This Pro was a used bike which I set up to use, and very soon raced it (the photo
shows it in TT mode for a team duathlon (Tim and I won the men's division) - a big advantage with a Bf is that
I could just throw an adjustable stem on there and drop the bars waaaaay down for the aerobars - normally I
find it impossible to get a good time trial position on a road bike, since I can never get the bars low enough). I
then used it as my dry weather training bike for the next year, including Bf's desert camp, and racing the State
Championships.

Update:
In December '07 I resprayed this bike in Canary Yellow and gave it to my brother-in-law in New Zealand. Kinda
sorry to see it go, but it has gone to a good home!
