    Dahon Classic pl632

    Hey all: I am looking at this bike. Any thoughts and pricing help would be great. Many here feel that early Dahon were crap. Is this one of the bad ones? It's a 3 speed w/ 16" wheels. Age is said to be 6 YO. Thanks for your help, Charlie

    Dahon classic 3

    I have a Dahon classic it is no longer a 3 speed. I set it up as a fixie. The drawbacks are that it is heavy ans spare parts will be difficult to obtain . I doubt what you are looking at is only 6 years old.I use mine to ride on ice and snow in the winter mainly. How much are they asking for it? Do not go too high.

    Yes!

    That is way too much money. Run away from that bicycle. Save you Bills for a newer Bike possibly a Used Piccolo.

    for another $100 you can get a new DownTube. If you don't mind a 20" wheels instead.
