Thinking about picking up a Dahon Jack for future multi-mode commuting. Already have a FlyBy,but like the idea of a full-size folder and better tire choice. I've done my forum searches and still have a couple questions. None of the local dealers have one in stock,unfortunately.
1) I'm 6' w/33" inseam and normally ride about a 56cm road bike or 19-21" hybrid. The Med Jack ends at 6',the Lrg starts at 6'. I'm guessing I should go with the Lrg. Anyone my size who can confirm that?
2) How small does it fold? I wouldn't be taking it on the Metro(subway) all the time,but when I do I wouldn't want it to be a huge hassle. Is it decent sized for taking on a train?
3) Will it take full fenders? Can't find a good enough pic to see if there's eyelets. Also is there clearance with the 2" wide tires?
4) Will it take a standard threadless fork? My 1x1 project bike is in pieces right now,and I may consider using the front wheel and brake to convert the Jack to a front disc.
TIA for any help.
