I was searching for a nice already made fixed gear bike and had ome across the cadenza solo. I did a little research and saw that the 2008 had a slight "curve" on one of the tubes, kind of turned me off; the 2009 doesnt have curve. The 2009 looks great but looking at the specs I saw that it gained 6lbs. 2008-25lbs 2009-31lbs. I just dont know which one to get. I saw the 2008 going for 450 on one site with free shipping while thorusa is goin to sell the 2009 for 679 with free shipping also. what do you guys think is better, maybe I could live with the curve, because its $279 cheaper..... Cheers on any other input/info about these bikes would be great!
I saw one selling 2009 Dahon Cadenze 8 for $400 on craigslist. Do you think it is good deal? It comes with original receipt, dual disk brakes, air pump on seat. I don't know it is good to buy this or go for Trek 7.3. I am about to buy Trek 7.3. Dahon is folding bike but Trek not. Need your input.
there is no current or 2010 Solo in the US
all 2009 were the same as 2008
all 2008 are sold
in other words its a no go unless a dealer has one hidden in a corner somewhere
Cadenza 8 2008 is the same as 2009 and no more in 2010
Dahon as well as I only have a few 20 inchers left ..after they are gone they are gone as well . This is a truly spectacular bike, typycal case of being introduced too early and than not enough numbers were sold and eventually dropped .... its a sad case in my opinion as it represented the nicest full size bike in a very attractive price.
