Citizen Bike, Downtube, of Dahon Boardwalk (need some advice)
Im looking at three different bikes, the Citizen Gotham, the Downtube 9 front suspension, and the Dahon boardwalk.
I want a bike that i can fit in my car (no bike rack) and ride around durring the day, so I dont have to drive through town.
I've got about $350US to spend - what do you guys think?
If you don't expect to see rough roads and it's pretty flat, I would save some money and go with the Boardwalk. If you need the gears or the suspension, go for the Downtube.
Define what sort of rough road or terrain where a suspension might be needed? Front or back suspension for what terrains?
Ill mostly be riding around on paved roads. There are a few hills in the area though, so having multiple gears would be nice.
I dont really need any suspension, but the Downtube 9 front suspension is the cheapest, and weight wont really bother me too much...
Thanks for the quick replies :-)
For $350 you can get the Dahon D7 new from ebay
Downtube or Dahon
Even at their low price, Citizen bikes are grossly overpriced. They also weight much more than they claim.
Only pay $100 (steel) to 150 (AL) for one.
Thanks BB49 - that Downtube is lookin pretty good :-)
