    I got myself a dahon boardwalk d6

    hi all,

    finally i was able to get ahold of a dahon boardwalk 6 Speed in british green. i test drove it and wow it's really fast compare to my tokyo. was it because of the 20 inch wheel compare to my 16 inch wheel tokyo or because of it's gear mechanics. my citizen tokyo might be heading to CL. i attached pics of it in my car trunk (right after i bought it) and out of the car trunk. sorry no picture yet of it unfolded. i still need to make some minor adjustments (brake pads, gear cables, change the seat). hopefully i will be able to upgrade this folder into something of a road/tour folder.

    come NorCal Folder Fest - i may be able to show this with some minor upgrades.....

    thanks for looking,
    vic

    PS - i was second in line of people who called and are interested on the bike. just got lucked out that the first person backed out and the seller was kind enough to accommodate me and kind enough to give me a good price.

    Congrats on the Dahon purchase! I'm still regretting not buying the one I saw for $120 some months back.
    I'm on my 4th foldy now. No, there's no immediate cure, I'm afraid.
