Bought this little baby about a month ago ...

off of Craigslist. Dahon Boardwalk singlespeed coasterbrake. I've changed the rear cog for more top-end
and put a better seat on it. I'm commuting to work on it and it's really lively and easy to maneuver around
traffic. I can cruise about 17mph on it without killing myself and have spun it up to 29.2 down a railroad
underpass with the same gear. It's really a great little bike! This pic is from today's 25 mile round trip to the beach and back. Best $120 I've ever spent!

It looks like a fun bike. How's the fold?

Folds easily and quickly. Feels tight and solid unfolded. Couldn't be happier!

Slap some wood fenders on it, leather grips, and a Brooks saddle and it'll almost be a Hon Solo! Neato!

I love my little Boardwalk. I've put thousands upon thousands of miles on it in Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Calgary and Toronto, and still use it as my daily commuter . Glad you're enjoying yours too!
