    I am BACK.....after my stint @ FA (Folderitism Anonymous) with a TR.

    hi all,

    been sober for awhile after my stint @ FA (Folderitism Anonymous). few months ago i deicded to get rid of all my folders hoping i can control this folderitis and at the same time to make the wifey happy. as you know i have a Bike Friday Tikit, Dahon MU XL, Dahon Curve D3 (after having ABike, Citizen Tokyo, Dahon Boardwalk D6 and Dahon Boardwalk D7). i was able to sell my MU at a price better than what i paid for. i was also trying to sell my Curve D3 but at a much lower price but no takers. it was a short soberness. once in a while i will gaze at CL and will always go to BF for some readings and to keep in touch with some people i become friends with. and guess what......I AM BACK with a vengeance as i bought another folder......a DAHON SPEED TR.

    i was at work browsing CL Los Angeles and i saw a Dahon 24 Speed for sale. no pictures so i have no clue what it is. a Speed Pro TT maybe. but the nice thing about the ad is there is actually a phone no. i can call. i was contemplating whether to call the seller or not. oh what the heck, just for curiosity let me just call him. i was the first caller but i live in San Francisco and the bike is in Los Angeles. i talked to my brother to check it for me. unfotunately my brother can't go that day. so he rescheduled the next day. the guy politely said that he will give it to the first person who shows up with money. since no one came to check it that day my brother was able to check it the next day (today). my brother called me as soon as he was there and he told me that the bike is in decent condition and clean. i told him to get it for me then. and now i am here waiting for my Dahon Speed TR and for some pics from my brother.

    long story short - FA is of no used - once a folderitic will always be one.

    PICS to come...

    Good day to everyone and to those in US have a safe and fun long weekend.

    There is no known medical cure for the viral condition Foldernitis. Medical researchers believe the virus is incurable and will continue to alter your cell structure to own and crave new and old folding models.

    Congrats vmaniqui, I know someone on this forum who will be jealous of your new acquisition as that's next on their craving list lol!

    Looks in very good condition. Dare I ask how many $'s your net worth declined by for this nice acquisition? You have the lovely SRAM dual drive on it right?

    Pretty darn complete bike Vic. I think its a steel frame(?), fenders, rear and FRONT racks, integrated hub generator for the lights, bar ends. Dude, that's a good score.

    Nice score vic.

    Could you do me a favor? Run the seat up to maximum extension and tell me what the pedal to top of the saddle measurement is?

    Thanks

    Yes. SRAM dual drive. Just really a good price i can't refuse. It's almost brand new. When my brother checked it he said it has less than 20 miles on it judging from the looks and condition of the bike.

    I don't have the bike yet. It is still in L.A. With my brother. I live in san Francisco. The previous owner is 6'2". As soon as I have it I will measure it. I am already lusting and can't wait till I get ahold of it. The waiting game...

    Yes it's a steel frame, DD drive, fenders, ergon grip, dynamo hub with front and rear lights. Front/rear racks.

    Thank you all for the nice compliments. I hope I can get it soon. As you know my brother in socal bought it on my behalf as I live in san Francisco and there is no way I would have driven to l.a. in a day just to buy it. But with this folderitis I could have right ?

    Guy said he bought it new in 2009. And he said he put in just 50 or less miles.

    My brother took those pictures and he emailed it to me and said "your bike". I guess he's trying to make me lust for more...

    I know what the website says, I was just hoping it might be wrong. I am 6'-2" with long legs and typically have my bikes set up with a saddle to pedal measurement of ~38".

    Vik,

    i still have my Tikit and Curve D3. i will keep the Tikit but thinking of selling the Curve as it doesn't get used that much. but i am still thinking of getting the Speed pro tt. it really looks cool to me and but at the moment cost is way too much. when i got the TR, cost was too good to ignore.

    i was thinking about that too. there was a swift on CL but i decided not to get it due to it's fold. i will use my bikes mostly for my multi modal commute and swift's fold will not cut it in for me. i heard so much about it's quality and ride but again i don't like the way it is folded. that is my main criteria in getting a folding bike.
