The F7 Speed was the first folder I had seen at a LBS here in Houston last Aug and the test rides impressed me enough that I was really tempted to buy it but the $400 price seemed high. But I became enamored with the DT Mini and bought one (08 floor model) instead. Now 10 months later I have 5 folders and occasionally I think about the F7 and wonder if it's new owner gets as much enjoyment riding it as I do with my Mini, Ciao, Speed TR and E3s.
BTW, the F7 was sold after sitting in the LBS for 7-8 months. We don't have a lot of folder fanatics here in H-town. Strangely, though I've recently seen two vintage Dahons (E5 and Stowaway) advertised on Houston.Craigslist. The Stowaway is available for $150; the E5 sold really fast for $80 and it looked to be in good condition.
