    Need rec: coaster brakes, single spd, 16" wheels.

    For my wife: I need a recommendation for a simple light folder with coaster brakes, single speed transmission, 16" wheels, moderate price. Must have all those features. What do you suggest?

    Thanks!

    Well, if you get either a Dahon Curve or a Downtube Mini and mail it to me, I'll be happy to switch out the internally geared hub and put in a coaster brake and ship it back to you. I'll do it for free, seriously!

    I'm one of the rare who managed to buy a Dahon Presto with a three speed hub with coaster brake. I hardly use the front brake at all and I wonder why Dahon went with the freewheel with the Curve.

    Thanks for the offer. I've resolved the issue by buying her a Boardwalk, which she really likes already. I sure wish they had 16" wheel versions.
