Could anyone tell me why Dahon has two separate catalogs-one for the North American customers and one for the international global customers? This has been a nagging question for as long as I was considering, then ordering their bikes. I feel like a second class citizen of the world. Is it because North Americans are so into SUVs and buy anything you put in front of them without question? I don't and I am sure others in my continent don't buy this as well. Is it because there is such a smaller market in buying bikes beyond the racer boy/girl, beefy ATB mountain look, or surfer boy/girl/gangsta cruiser chunky fat (excuse me, phat) tire clunker groups? I can tell you for sure that folding bikes are making their presences known even in the middle of the car capital of the world (Southern California). I am seeing more even in the middle of a poor, harsh neighborhoods such as mine. And I know Dahon's sales are probably reflecting this, too. There is a market even in places where there were none even a year ago. Even my educational web sites are increasing in surfing traffic and I am so excited about them both.
