BSM is ‘Business Systems Modernization’ and it is the name of the five year project I’m on at work. I’m gonna use this to get around on the compound, it is pretty big. That is a plastic tote zip tied to the rear rack, and I can put my junk in there. Nice little folding bike, it is from Germany, just like the SAP software we’re using.

    It is not a fixed gear, it has a coaster brake rear hub. Fix-i-fying it would mean a new hub, rim, spokes and me getting the motivation to lace it up and I’m much too lazy. But it does fold ;-)

    Better lock up that bike. The last bike you had at work was "borrowed" Now that it is a BSM mobile, it will be a hot item.

    What’s the name of this German bike? When I was a kid in the Soviet Union (in the 80s), I had a folding bike that looked just like it. I’m sure the Soviets copied it from the Germans, like they did with so many other consumer goods (like Leicas, Fiats, etc.)

    I’ve just set up a flickr interest group (called ‘foldr’ – geddit?) for retro folding bikes if you’re interested in adding this sweet bikey to the gallery? Hoping to get a few contributions so there’s a one-stop resource of pictures, and in time – perhaps info about these ace bikes

    If you are – I’ve posted a link below.
    (Apologies in advance for spamming you with this.)
