Duarte, California, February 16, 2004 -- Dahon California, Inc., the world leader in folding bicycles, and California-based bicycle seat designers S.D.G. (Speed Defies Gravity), have collaborated to make Dahon's 2004 premier bike models lighter and more versatile than ever. S.D.G.'s unique I-Beam system, which employs a single composite "rail" molded into the base of the saddle, versus dual metal rails, saves significant weight and roughly triples the fore-aft adjustability of standard seats. Using S.D.G.'s I-Beam rail system, Dahon and S.D.G collaborated to develop the lightweight I-Flex saddle.
WRT that green cruiser.... am I the only one confused by whatever-the-hell's going on with the thing's rear wheel?
It looks like a wheel with a totally enclosed fender, but the fender is.... sitting on the ground?
It's probably a few mil off the ground. Design cue taken off the old hot-rods where they used to 'fair in' the rear wheels with neat covers over the rear wheels and mudguards. Kinda like the Audi in that terrible adaptation of 'I, Robot'.
A total pain if any crud gets stuck up there but I suppose you only cruise along a beach pavement in the sun so probably not an issue. I think it looks pretty cool!
Dennis at the Fixed Gear Gallery has a bunch of general stuff on his site - one folder I saw on this page: Single speed 16" Breezer
I viewed a folding tricycle at K Mart it wieghs about 8 pounds .That green kids Drasine should inquire about using the Name John Deere,also is it steel or Pvc pipe.What is the gearing on the Mobiky?What is the tire size on the dahon curve and what is with the Morbidly Obese tire Moots?
