Saw this in the LBS in Japan today - Dahon Silvertip

Cool looking bike. They also had the new MuP8 in blue which is a sharp looking bike.

The Silvertip is a Lockjaw evolution of the Hammerhead frame. I had a non-lockjaw version fitted with flat bars like the Silvertip, and the result was a very fast urban bullet. Weight is up a tad on the Silvertip though, which some might find annoying.

A mini velo is strictly speaking a small bike that does NOT fold. With the Silvertip, Dahon has gone further to bringing a true mini velo to the Japan market.
