Hey folks, new guy here. I've been lurking the forums for the past week and am looking for help on my first folder purchase. Hope you guys could provide some feedback.
Anyone here ever test ride or own a Dahon Vitesse D7HG 2008. I'm sold on the looks/ color ,but am concerned about maintenance and performance. After searching the forums, I've read that past Vitesse models have had issues w/ axle-creep syndrome ( rear wheel sliding forward), and problems with gear shifting. Should I be concerned about this, or has Dahon addressed these issues for this 2008 model?
I'm not as bike tech savy as most of the people on this board, and I really don't want to be buying new replacement parts for a brand new bike. I'm hoping that the bike will be fine right out of the box.
I was only able to test ride the Dahon Boardwalk SP1, and am really looking for a folder w/ more gears to take on hills and long rides. I live on the east coast NJ, and plan to use the folder for casual rides / commuting to Ny (bus subway etc.).
Thanks in advance, any feedback will be appreciated!
