Difference between the Presto Lite 2004 & 2005

Hi,

Not being very Bicycle savvy i was wondering if anyone out there could shed some light on this issue.

I am really interested in buying this bike and I found one for 400 with bag & delivery but asked the online store if it was a 2004 or 2005 model. They told me it was a 2004 model but they also have a 2005 in stock and was willing to sell it to me for 440 with bag and delivery.

Whats the difference and would it be worth me spending the extra 40.

Thanks

Kien

I don't believe the 2004 model was the Presto Lite but just the Presto. The Dahon Presto was slightly heavier and I believe weighted about 21 lbs.

I think they added a carbon component, changed the distance between saddle and handlebars. There were a few minor changes.

Thanks for your help guys. I decided on getting the 2005 model in the end.
