    My New Piccolo

    I saw the auction on Ebay a couple of weeks ago for a new Dahon Piccolo in the box. It arrived today and I already altered it a bit.

    Nice bike, i also saw one on ebay and thought of buying it exactly the same as that, might even be the one, but it exceeded my price range (this was before i got the trek).

    Sweet looking bike? What did you change? It looks like the saddle, grips and pedals at the least.

    I took of the fenders and rear rack. Replaced the handlebar, grips, pedals and saddle. That was in the first hour that I got it. I would like to get different tires and replace the rear cog on the hub. Thanks for the compliments.

    I really like the modifications you did on your bike. I have the same year & model. I have had no need to change anything except for the saddle at purchase. I will add some Kool Stops brake pads on my bike very soon.

    Thanks, I noticed the brakes grip very well. I have the parts so that is why I do it. I would like to get Avid 5 brake levers in the future.
