    :-) It's a bit less quick and compact, but i think it's a fair exchange for the inprovement in the ride...

    Well well. I had one identical to this for about 4 days. It is a model only available in China. The seller sold it as a Jetstream P8 (he didn't know better); I was disappointed enough to send it back after working out I would be better off getting a Jetstream P8 than upgrading this one.

    Some basic info such as model number and a pic can be found on the Chinese Dahon site. The frame is identical to that of the Dahon Jetstream XP, loaded with lesser componentry. So if you spent big, you'd end up with an XP.

    That's what I thought when I bought it. Got it off ebay for a steal, it had hardly been ridden, so I spending on upgrades was part of the plan. I made the mistake of just buying the perfect bike once, oh those boring winter nights with nothing to tweak or fiddle with :-(

    $90 no name bike

    didn't want to spend a lot of money for a bike to use just around campgrounds or short bike trail rides. Got this from RV toyoutlet. advertised as a folding cruiser steel frame 20" 30# 5speed (sunrun) bike.
    It did require minor adjustments of front brake (band brake on rear) and fenders. I trued the front wheel, added lights, bottle holder, bell, tightened all bolts and swapped out the seat for a 'comfort' seat (no horn). Tires are no name brand and will probably need replacing after a year or so.
    I am using the box it came in for storing it in my truck folded.
    quality of welds, paint, components look OK. made in China-of course.

    Hi, I am very new here (unless my 68...) and came on bikeforum because am' waiting for brand new Birdy (City premium) witch is in Vélectrisation way...
    Means he becomes a bruschless hubmotor in front weehl, with a very innovative kokam lipo battery.
    Cycling enjoys wealthy, but better with vélectrised back wind....
    Pictures later, and tests after pictures...

    Well, I've been hanging out in the folder forum, and lusting after a folding bicycle for quite a while. I finally took the plunge and bought my first folding bicycle back in December. Many thanks to all who knowingly, or unknowingly provided useful information and motivation for this bike!

    The bike, yet to be named, is a Bike Friday New World Tourist. It's a straight up touring bike. It's shown below without racks, in the snow that is keeping me from getting out and enjoying it!!

    The pedals and saddle are not final. The old-style Dura-Ace pedals are placeholders for Speedplay Frogs. I have a B-17 Champion Special for it, but it is currently being broken in on my commuter.

    OK, here's my wheels.... More details on the Swift mods in the "Swift Gallery" thread. The Dahon Mariner is stock except for the tires, though I think I'm going to get a new handlepost.

    has anyone (else) got a F1 ?

    it is full size with 26" wheels. 1st one delivered was damaged & I sent it back. second one upon examination had buckled wheel, gear changers wrong, more or less all parts badly fitted, after 15 miles cranks were loose. says a lot about the staff that assembled them. however I have now stripped & rebuilt it (well most of it anyway) and its pretty good for the price.
    dont know about taking it on the bus though as the bus services want them to be stored in an overhead locker.
    have really got a thing now about folders, looking for 20" wheel next I think, or something that will fit into a laptop bag !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've got three folders: 1) a Brompton M6L, 2) a Schwinn-Montague M1000 BiFrame, and 3) a Strida.





    Since I got the Brompton, the Strida has been collecting dust with flat tires.

    Sell it! I change my folders very often, what you don't want may be the dream bike to someone else.

    My brand new Bianchi Fretta, sadly no real miles on it yet but I love it. All standard Capreo components at the moment, the only change is the MKS removable pedals. Now I just need to locate the source of the horrendous rattle coming from the front end.

    Most likely the V-brakes. I have seen some Birdy users who use rubber bands on the brakes to diminish the rattling. However, I doubt you will totally eliminate the noise...

    Nice bike by the way.
