    Japan-market KHS on UK Ebay

    At risk of setting UK forum members bidding against one another, check out this. A rather nice KHS folder...tempted?

    It's the restrictive height limit that puts me off fancy KHS folders...

    It would be more work though - vertical dropouts and rear sus to contend with...

    A White industries ENO eccentric hub would iron out any problems with chain tension with those dropouts and the chainlength can't be changed much by the 'suspension' as the chainstays are totally solid and not about to move much...

    The ENO hub is great - pricey but the prefect solution for vertical dropouts. Just means that you can't get to pick your favourite hub!
