    good dealer for folding in Jax Fl area

    Hi I want to get a folding bike so I can continue to train while I am on the road like 3xs week. I am a roadie and am in the market for a folding bike since I fly... Should i buy online or can anyone recommend a good shop in the Jax Fl area?
    thanks

    There is a really nice Bike store off of San Jose Blvd, north of Baymeadows road that used to sponsor my adventure race team. I never saw a folder there, but I remember one of their tech guys mentioning they could get one. If you are a road biker, I recomend a Dahon or Bike Friday. If you are on a low budget, think about getting a Downtube and modify it. A Lot.

    Thanks for the info..
    So Dahon is the one to get ..

    Do you know of any on-line dealers where maybe I could get a good deal?

    Are they realitively easy to fly with?

    No 20" wheel bike is "easy to fly with", some dummy-proof but time consuming disassembly is required. With practice, one can pack a 20" wheel bike in less than 10 minutes, but be prepared to spend some nice 50 minutes on your first attempt.

    I never bought a Dahon (light bikes and speed are not my forte), but some other people here will point you in the right direction regarding online dealers.

    Good Luck, make sure you come back and share a picture of your folder once you get it.

    You should check out this site for information about the best Dahon models for packing and travel. They are an online dealer and are a Dahon-authorized customizer but can also just sell you a stock model. They are very helpful and well worth talking to.
