did a forum search..but couldn't find answers to these downtube mini questions...

i'm talking about the 2008 model.

1. i noticed the back wheel frame have some sort of black rubber? is that rear suspesnsion? if yes, does it also front suspension?
2. when the bike is folded...what is keeping the bike together (i.e. strap, magnet or what)? if nothing, would a simple bungee cord will do the deal?

thx in advance.

The Mini has rear suspension, but not front. Nothing is holding it together when it folds, but I'm sure you could use a bungee cord or something similar, if you wanted.

The answer to the suspension issue would've been found by visiting the Downtube website (or mine). A bungee does a good job holding it together. It's a great little bike.
