dowtube vs hammerhead vs youtube....

OK, so check this out - of a guy riding a dahon hammerhead

http://youtube.com/watch?v=6twLoVe73G8&feature=related

My q. - and this aint being a smart alec - is how does the guy carry the quart of milk home?

Specifically, the hammerhead 5 is on sale here in the UK for the same price I can get a downtube IXFS, and seeing I need something small more than something foldable I am seriously considering it. But anyone got any suggestions on rack etc luggage possibilities for the hammerhead?

What surprises me is that the bike was still there when he came out of the shop. I doubt he could leave it unlocked outside many times before coming back out with his milk to a very nasty surprise.


The suspension system looks neat, doesn't it?

Hate the pink colour though.

And why does he have to cycle halfway across London to get to a corner store?

And where did he get those shorts... What a goon!
Yeah.. Seatpost-based luggage clamp would likely be your only option as it has no bosses for luggage welded to the frame. They're well regarded and those sale prices make them very tempting.
