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.
