    2009 Dahon Cadenza 8

    Hi,
    I am thinking to get Dahon Cadenza 8 or Trek 7.3. I saw one used Dahon Cadenza 8 selling $400 on craigslist. It comes with Dual Disk Brake, original receipt, seatpost pump and etc. I am not sure how the performance compare to Trek. I search around and don't see any review for 2009 Dahon Cadenza 8. Please give me your feedback.

    The only difference between the 08 and 09 seems to be the hybroforming of the downtube. The 09 has a straight one. personally I think this is an improvement, permitting more space for lock, waterbottle, shouldering etc.
    I have been using my 08 version since Aug 08 for daily commuting 2x6miles. I am very happy with it, it rolls very smoothly with nippy steering in traffic but rock solid on descents. My longest ride has been about 20miles inc some off-road and it coped OK with that.
    The Lockjaw has proved trouble free but I don't unlock it very often.
    I swapped the straight bars for On-One Mary's with a bit of sweep for comfort. The front wheel is custom built dynohub which stays on all year round. I had some issues geting a rack to fit, I settled on the Axion Odysee Disc which fits the high eyelets.
