Buying 1st Folder, which one should I get: Dahon Speed D7 or Downtube 2008 IX
I have taken the advice of many and started digging through this forum and now have run into the Downtube IX 2008. It appears to be $300 or so and seems to have better specs than the D7. I did find that there were some problems with the gears in the 2007 model. So here is the new question: Which bike would you recommend/prefer - Dahon Speed D7 or Downtube 2008 9 (front suspension folding bike)? Does anyone know if the Downtube 2008 9 FS is subject to the same issues as the 2007 model?
And this last questions is only because I am a constant bargain Hunter (my constant addiction to www.slickdeals.net is proof enough), Do you know where I can find the cheapest model for a D7? And do you know of any coupon codes for downtube (other than SALE)? Thanks everyone!
