REI / Dahon Fly-By encounter
No detailed report here, but I was in our downtown Denver REI yesterday around closing and saw the "Fly-By" sitting out.
I rode it around for just a minute on their test path, as it was getting dark, but it seemed like a pretty good bike, especially for the price. I am just a tad over 6' tall and 200lbs (on a bad day)and the bike handled that just fine with nary a creak or groan. I did not fold it, nor did I ask, as I know the salesperson really did not know much about it. He said they had just gotten it together and put it on the floor the day before. The Nexus, I believe, is the basic version (non-red line?) but it shifted fine. I really do like IG hubs on folders...
Anyway, might be something that people want to find or ask about.
P.S. No affiliation to REI or Dahon... I will say that REI would seem to be an extremely good place to deal with, in lieu of a LBS. From what I have seen, they back their products completely.... even when, I suspect, they don't know, in this case, much about them.
