Well as far as conflict of interest. I do sell Dahon bikes and do a couple other things for Dahon, however it is by far NOT the main of my income. Not by a longshot. I am fiercely independant. I could be much richer if I wasnt , but than I couldnt sleep at night. I can walk any bike show and there is nobody i have willingly and or knowingly screwed. However there a quite a fdew folks who screwed me over the years.

Anyhow I am biased and make no secret out of it. I am not biased because of my paycheck, but that I like Dahons and the people who work there .

Still would like to find out about the allegations about being censored on the Dahon forum, now that the other point ( getting no return emails ) has been cleared up ( ended in spam filter )

Fair enough. My point was not that I suspect you of being corrupt. Far from it. You have a stellar reputation. Just that there is a small conflict of interest, even if they're not your main sqeeze.

Oh yeah Thor. In the interest in fairness, I think I was responsible for messing up my post on the Dahon Website. Here is something you don't hear much from customers- YOU are right. I am wrong. Sorry about the rant, Dahon.

absolutely no problem spikedog.....
its not about me being right or wrong ( i am 60/40 but gettin better )

but all about censorship on the Dahon board... its a great board ..but only because people can say what they want.

If I find out that negative comments or problem cases get thrown out ( censored ) than I am the very first person who will stop visiting there ,not without letting both Hons know anout that first.

You can see that it is VERY IMPORTANT to me that there is no censorship, whatsoever ...

Now, can I invite you to a beer ? :-)
