    A BIG thanks to Thor!!

    I ordered my Espresso last week from Thor and it arrived Friday. Saturday morning I unwrapped it and made a couple of little adjustments. It felt like Christmas. I found myself wipping it down even though it didn't need it. I took it for a nice 15 miles ride. It shifts great and was nice and smooth. I did find that the water bottle bracket is too far forward and is a hassel to take in/out the bottle. I am looking forward to my commute this week to see how it handles the Bus and co-workers.

    Thanks Thor!!!

    I do tend to find that major and experienced Dahon dealers like Thor tend to give an excellent service. Similar experience here with Fudge Cycles in London UK who are a major Dahon dealer here.

    Good luck with your commute, I'm sure you will find the Expresso a very versatile bike.

    Snafu crashes into another tree on a Sunday and finds some more magic mushrooms in the process.

    Hello Joako,

    Oil up the hinge, as it was stiff. Slight tuning of the spokes. I like to sit a little more upright so I added a ring to the top of the fork to raise the handlebars. I also rotated the handle bars a little to give it more lift. Which meant that I needed to rotate the brake and shift levers. I also added a water bottle holder.

    Later,
    -Bob
