I just got a Swift. I had been wishing for a folding bike for like a year alongside my other bikes and finally just decided to do it. I'm very happy with it so far.
The only thing... Is there anyway to upgrade either cassette or chainring (along w/ shifters and derailleurs) to achieve higher gears (higher enough to be worth teh expense). I would like to be able to go faster on flats and down-hills. Lower gears are not an issue as I rarely will ever use even the top three lowest gears on the 8-speed on the bike now, even on really steep hills.
Wouldn't a front derailleur only give you lower gears?
Thanks for any help.
