I went to look at the north woods folder. I liked the looks of it but the bike seemed kinda cheap... kinda like the guy trying to sell it to me; he said the north woods was a better bike than his boardwalk; to illustrate the point this self proclaimed bicycle expert brought out his boardwalk (that he paid $200 for)to show me "how much lighter it was" than the north woods, and he stated the reason it was lighter than the north woods is because "the boardwalk is (just) made for running small errands while the north woods was made to be an every day commuter!" I wasn't buying it.
I also looked at a Dahon V, which I can't seem to find any info on. It looks to be very similar to the vintage stowaway, yet the lady said the person she bought it from 4 years ago said it was brand new. When did Dahon drop that style of frame? I'm needing a folder by monday, and the Dahon is only $75, so that might be the one I go with.
