Dahon Cadenza 08




My Dahon Cadenza 08 special edition

Normal spec but with matching brown saddle and handgrips. I love the ride and impressed with overall versatility. It was the smoothness of the 8 speed Shimano Alfine hub on this that inspired me to fit one to my Brompton!

Stop teasing me with these provocative pictures of bicycles. I've still got the hots for a 2010 Lockjaw Matrix, with funny forks and disk brakes.

Hmmm.

Hi Mr Crunch! No a bit of everything really. Whenever I feel like a change or for some trail riding for sure ;-)

Oh the Cadenza 08 is sexier than the Matrix except if you like Keanu Reeves perhaps?

I am, as you know, quite partial to hurtling down filth-covered 'mountains' at the weekend, like Highgate Hill. Suspenshion forks are thus my mug of oolong.

Disk brakes, and fenders though. Pah!

I note your generously proportioned 'pie-rack' on the back.

Goodbye faithful war-horse...


I have seen the future, and it's a funny shape.
