BTW, hey all. I'm new to the forum and to the world of folding bikes. Don't have one yet, though I test-rode a Dahon Speed D7 yesterday.

Hope you will joining the Fold soon. If you are in the NYC area, you will see folders on CL more than other places. Some at decent prices too. Good luck in your hunt.

Black Bike Friday Folding mountain bike 24speed. http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/bik/2443115608.html

Can anyone tell me which model this is? How much work would it be to repair it, and how much is reasonable to offer this seller?

Danger Will Robinson...although that bike looks like it has a Thudbuster suspension seatpost, that doesn't qualify it as a mountain bike. The seller is either lying about it's capabilities or doesn't have a clue.

The missing rear wheel is also fishy. It's possible the seller is a thief who walked away with somebody's new bike & front wheel because the bike had been locked only by only the rear rim...of a wheel that had quick-release axles.

Just sayin'...approach this one with caution.

And some sellers are willing to ship. I picked up a Birdy Silver from a fellow in NY, and he shipped it to me in California. Still a good deal after including the cost of sending it.

They seem like they would be cool to tinker with.

Yes, but I have seen normal size guys trick them out as super small commuters.

Damn bigot had to mention asians.

BTW do these guys hardly ever ship?

NVM I just read the post above. Do some ship even though they don't advertise it? I'd imagine you have to write them a very sincere email even though he has ten local emails asking to buy.....
