Why is Dahon Speed heavier than Speed Pro?
I'm looking for a light weight folder that I can take on the airlines and use for moderate touring. The Speed Pro is as light as the Helios P8 and has 21 speeds. But then I think I don't need that wide a gear
inch range, so the Helios might be satisfactory. But how about the Speed P8 - it has the same frame as
the Pro and is cheaper. Why is it heavier and could I lighten it at reasonable cost?
Also do these bikes have anyway to adjust for riding position - I have felt too upright on the folding
bikes I have ridden briefly including the one I mention below.
Currently I have a 22 lb folder with Scram X7 and 9 with a carbon seat post and 14 spoke wheels
(weinmann Zac 2000) and generally eemly good features. It is labelled Peerless (got in on ebay). But I need a second bike for my wife.
Incidently would I be correct to also consider Helios SL (although it is over my budget right now).
