what to keep and what to replace: Dahon
I was really jonesing for a Strida or CarryMe when I was facing a vacation in another state. However, now that I have come home (and spent all my disposable income), not so much.
I do need to put a little money into the bike...
I have a Dahon Boardwalk (7 speeds) which is beginning to show it's age...
the pedals don't match, I have used up two pair of folding pedals already. I replaced one of them with a standard pedal.
I put one of the pedals in wrong, and now either have to machine the pedal or replace the crank arm to get it changed.
I still am an Athena, so replacing the whole bike would mean getting a new special built rear wheel.
Maybe next year, after some of the weight goes away (just started WeightWatchers...)
