Ok, let me first say I this is my first post here in the folding bike forum, but I have lurked a few times. I always thought it would be neat to have a folding bike, but I had never owned one till today. I bought this Dahon today at a thrift store for $15. It had fenders and a chain guard both in very poor repair so I pulled ‘em off. I’d like to at least get a replacement chain guard as I can see it may keep me clean as I fold the bike.
I am guessing this is the lowest offering by Dahon at the time. It’s a “Getaway V” Any thoughts? Junk, or worth keeping? I gotta say, this thing is pretty squirrelly at speed. The wheels are tiny at 16”, is that normal? I thought modern folders has 20” wheels. Anyway, any opinions or feedback would be appreciated.
