    dahon curve d3 recommendations

    I'm thinking of buying a Curve D3. So far, what I've read are all favorable reviews. I had the Jetstream P8 but sold it to buy a full size single speed, but am thinking I miss the little guy. I can't spend a whole lot, and the curve looks like a cool bike. Just looking for another bike to have some fun with. I ride on the road and bumpy bike paths.

    Anyone like to weigh in with an opinion...

    If you haven't read Kent P's blog posts about his D3 they are worth a read. Just type Dahon into the search box at the top left of the page when you get to his blog.

    I'd suggest before you commit to the Curve, do a close comparison between that and the Downtube Mini. A lot of people don't want the fenders and rack that come with the curve, so it doesn't make sense to pay for them. On the Downtube for a similar price you get no fenders or rack, but a much better hub, which makes a big difference. If you need fenders and don't care about the more performance-oriented hub, the Curve may make more sense.
