    I had one of these. Great bike. The DualDrive is a great gear system for folders. The frame is strong and stiff, with plenty of room, too (I'm 6' tall). Nice wheelset.

    I think the asking prices is so-so. You could probably negotiate a bit on that.

    I still have mine.. excellent bikes .. only change I made were On One shallow drops and STIs .. the CL one probably doesn't have a ton of miles as it still has the Mango Stelvios and Pantour hub.. some of the hubs had premature problems.. if you go look at it, see if there is any side to side slop in the front wheel .. should feel mostly like your Boardwalk, if it feels looser, you'll notice it at speed when riding and the fix will be sending the wheel back to Pantour or another complete wheel.. the gearing will be great for SF ..
