I'm riding on a folding bike which I brought from Japan. It is designed in Germany and made in Taiwan. It is so small and light-weight that when I brought it into Vancouver, the airport officer didn't believe it was a bike before he opened the carrying bag. I bought it a few years ago in Japan, but I couldn't enjoy it in Tokyo because Tokyo is a very busy city. And it's tires are so small (just 16 inches in diameter) that it is difficult to get over small holes in the road which are very frequent in Tokyo. I've already covered more than 600km on this bike in Vancouver. I'm planning to cover more than 1,000km before I go back to Japan this October.
