    Yes, that's it.

    Thanks. I've got that Klickfix mount on my Speed TR. I bought a basket for grocery runs for my office but don't use it that much and the bag would be a better fit the rest of the time.

    I think they may sell those bags here locally.

    The Ortlieb Ultimate is the single most useful piece of bike luggage I've ever had. Even aside from the incredible usefulness of any handlebar bag, it's a perfect size, well-designed, lightweight, strong, and waterproof. If I lost it, I'd call Wayne at the touring store and order another one on the spot.

    Welcome to the Curve D3 world of lurve!

    My Curve is currently out of commission until I fix that front wheel with the damaged Big Apple tire. Thinking if a Marathon Racer may be a better idea up front, since I need to replace it anyway.

    I put a Marathon on my rear wheel, and love it. I need an excuse to put one on the front as well.

    thanks mr. brown. reading everyone's posts gave me the incentive to keep my Curve (no pun intended - as i don;t have any curves in my bod ).

    i was trying to remove the rack on my curve when all of a sudden i noticed that the fender is attached to the rack itself. anyone have an idea on how i can do it?

    thanks,
    vic

    Use a metal strut to replace the support the fender gives.

    You'd probably be best off making your own. Very narrow strips of sheet metal (such as aluminum) from a hardware store would do the trick. A strong coat hanger might also work.

    It is good. Mine was doing this until this weekend. I had to loosen one of the nuts because it was too tight causing it to drag. For the fenders take a look at this post:

    Dahon Curve D3 Rear Fender

    I used some clothe hangers and the screws and nuts from the fender. You can also buy some clips if you don't want to open a hole in your fender.

    Sorry , I should have made it clear my suggestion was a DIY suggestion. You could also support it from the frame like a pannier I guess.

    My daughter finds the gearing a little high, so maybe it can go on.
    Else i have a spare chainset with a 42t

    Definitely YES. Barcelona is not flat so I'd like to have more gears. Maybe I should have gone for the SL, it would be more of an all-purpose bike.

    hmm. i am also thinking about that but have no idea how. since this is my commute bike, gearing can be ok for me.....although quite limited.

    The Curve comes with rims drilled for Schrader. Unless you swapped out the rims?
