Bike Valet

I valeted my bicycle yesterday. It was pretty neat.
I rode my Citizen folding bike to the Regent Bal Harbour for an appointment and after huffing and puffing my way up the steep driveway I coasted to the valet station and breathlessly said, "Hi. I'd like to valet my bike!"
(Meanwhile I'm thinking to myself I'm so effing green.)
The courteous valet guys looked a little confused but one seemed to know what to do and offered to stash the bike in the office. After my appointment I came out and was like, "Hi, I think my bike is in your valet office." The gracious parking attendant promptly procured the office keys and reappeared with my hot two-wheeler. I tipped him a few dollars and was on my way.
Valet practice of the future? Perhaps...

Hello, how do you like your Citizen bike? I came across your blog while researching these bikes?

Easy to fold/unfold? Any issues? etc...

Thank You,

Hey Jorge, I love my Citizen. Super easy to unfold and use. Never had any issues.

I was going to ask the same thing as Jorge. Was thinking of getting one for my girlfriend (and then myself so she doesn't have to ride alone). Sounds like you're sold on Citizen.

Yo Sara,

Which model do you have and do you think you could store this puppy in a closet w/o taking up a ton of room?

I ride the Gotham and it folds up pretty compact for stashing.
