Hi there. I have a chance to buy a "north woods" folder for $125 (around what I'm willing/able to pay for a used folder). Does anyone know anything about it? The guys says he doesn't know how old it is exactly, but that it isn't very old and has very few miles on it. It has 20in wheels which I like. What do you guys/gals think, is it just a cheap-O wal-mart-ish bike? Any advise would be appreciated.
I forgot to mentioned that I can also buy an old school 80s Dahan Stowaway for $120. Not too stoked about the 16in wheels, but I'm thinking it may be a better quality bike. I am curious about the drum brake though, does it require any kind of special maintenance, and/or are they prone to have mechanical problems? Is it possible to attach a regular center pull type brake to where the back fender is attached?
