The Cadenza has really changed. Looks better and probably rides better.
The Smooth Hound lost it's suspension fork and gained fenders, mud flaps.

Yeah, I like the way those two look now myself. I think I'll hold onto my cash 'til the '08 bikes come out. Seeing as how I'm in Seattle, the new Cadenza may be better than the current one

The XP looks pig ugly, but the MU is impressive - 2k though!

The Jetstream XP looks like a Downtube to me.

Did they do something to the Smooth Hound to make it pack into an airline legal suitcase?

I like the Cadenza Solo...

Well, I'm hoping it's available in the UK as Dahon seem to make some odd distribution decisions.

The Speed P8 in black - yes! And more of it is Alu (get there eventually).

Now watch Fishers only supply the Red ones in the UK. Let's hope they don't choose only the brown colour for the Jack (now that really looks literally like sh*t)!

Cadenza 8 is cool. Otherwise not a lot to get excited about really.

If the Jetstream rides like a Birdy, that would be pretty impressive...
