I've been considering getting a Pro TT. I test rode one at a local dealer and liked everything about it except the brakes. They weren't strong at all. I had one of the mechanics tweak them and took the bike for another ride,and while the brakes were better,they still weren't good enough. I live in a very hilly area,so this is a big deal to me. I checked the forums on Dahon's site,and it seems to be the general consensus that the brakes are underperformers. One poster noted that the '09 models now have V brakes,and Dahon's listing for the bike confirms this. But the shop claims the bike I rode is an '09,and it def had dual pivot calipers.
Can anyone out there confirm that the '09's do have V's? None of the other shops that carry Dahon have Pro TT's in stock. And has anyone ridden one and can confirm that the braking has been improved? It's a shame that the brakes are so bad as the rest of the bike rocked. It was light,had a nice gear spread,handled well,and had a comfortable ride. I'd have bought it if the brakes were up to the level of the rest pf the bike. Thanks in advance.
