Picked up a new folder today

I got this off of craigslist this afternoon. The original owner said he hardly used it and it looks it. I found it very easy to ride and I think this one will be a keeper.

Looks like a Trek?

Yeah, almost 100% sure that would be a Trek unless some Chinese OEM slipped out of the factory.
It was a partnership with Dahon - I forget if Dahon actually built them, or just licensed the technology.

There were several models, the top of the line was the F600.. you don't have that one.
I would bet on an F400. I think there was also an F200 and maybe an F100... unsure.

There was a dealer in my city who carried them for a bit, but iirc they were quite a bit heavier than the equivalent Dahon's and priced rather high. Still a very nice find!

F400: http://www.bayviewcycle.com/NewFiles...DING/F400.html
F600: http://www.bayviewcycle.com/NewFiles/bike_specs/003/FOLDING/F600.html

There used to be archived info on Trek's site, but they seemed to re-organized/bury it at one point. My favourite Trek folder was the red one with the stripes... it reminded me of the Red Baron.

Dahon did not produce a similarly shaped hydroform frame. The Dahon technology is circa 2004.
