Considerably more expensive...but less than the Brompton by half...
I saw a Dahon Speed in red a couple days ago at a LBS. Steel frame, Sram 3.0, seemed well made. Add some fenders and a rear rack and it was about as nice as the higher line models that folded a little tighter. Steel was a selling point to me, over the pricier aluminum Dahons.
How do those $500 steel Dahon Speeds compare to the $1200 Brompton, Breezer folders, Bike Friday Tickits/other Bike Fridays, and KHS bikes?
Sounds like a lot to compare to...but maybe I can get some responses that would assist in figuring out which are the best.
