    It's called a Hon folder, developed by a Dr Hon from California. I have one of these. I believe he sold all rights to the maker of Dehon.

    so it's not a Dahon Classic 3?
    The brake for the rear is on the left if that makes a difference (english?)

I think I'll now need to look into making some minor adjustments to it - and in the meantime it gets folded into the boot of the car and safely transported to the bottom of the hill. I love folding bikes.

    Raleigh 20's and their variants are great bikes and have quite the cult following...

    Their biggest issue is braking and replacing the steel wheels with alloy ones will make quite a difference as will replacing the brakes with stiffer units.

    The things you can do with an R20 are limitless... I have 3 of them.

    Forrest the fixed gear... a 1973 Phillip's 20


    The SO's completely stock 1974 Raleigh 20 - new wheels are in the works.


    Grace... Forrest's sister. She is sporting a custom dual drive.

    What beautiful bikes you have... I now need to find another one myself, as someone stole Rosie (my birthday R20) from the boot of my car last week. I'm still devastated. For the next one, I'll be looking at replacing the brakes first off before doing any downhill runs - and it won't be in the boot of my car for any amount of time.

    I am so sorry to her about the theft... bike thieves should be hung.

    I also appreciate the comments and hope you find a replacement soon.

    Dahon 2004 Mariner

    Blue with most black parts fixed gear (52t x 13) tiny terror, which I enjoy commuting (8 miles each way) in, and it even once placed 3rd in a street sprint against other fixies on South Beach, Miami, FL.
    People always take a double look when I speed on by them. She's so much fun!

    She's ready... the '74 got her new wheels and a Brooks B66 and all I need now is a fair lady to ride her.

    @ The Remix Imo it's Dahon Classic III(look for them on Flicker). David Hon is the original designer of Dahon (hence Dahon).

    As a newby: I have three bikes. A dutch Gazelle (large and heavy steel classic model), a old but nice Giant ATB (XTC2 - 2001 or a bit later) and for this forum a nice Dahon MU SL. No pictures yet. I never had any driverslicense and public transport is not my thing (if I have to I will take a train), so cycling is what I do every day for about the last 50 years.

    about 18lbs to about 30 lbs depending on bike, and choice of equipment components.

    @ rtistikvelocity The folding Dahon weighs 9 kilo; the Giant around 12,5 kilo and the Gazelle more than 20 kilo. Because I have to carry the Dahon three narrow stairs up/down the weight was an important consideration. I'm very pleased with it, it rides like a dream, and for me the price was oké because I bought the bike within an employee benefit programm which means I got the bike about 40% cheaper than normal (Dutch) price.

    my Dahon Mu Sport

    Here is a pic of my Mu XL Sport 2007 fitted with BA 2,35". It's a tight fit. 1-2 mm clearance only. I use Belair FX saddle with flex zone. And the MG1 Magnesium/Titanium pedals which I highly recommend.

    bhkyte and makeinu and all others: I left the west coast and drove back east under really bad conditions. However, once home I continued my "study" of folding bikes and visited many web sites seeking info............I even entered a contest for a folding bike................and.......................
    Larry Lagarde from rideTHISbike.com called me on 4/22 to tell me that I had WON!!!
    Now I don't have to fret anymore about which brand to get- I am getting an E-Z Pack folding bike which is lightweight and sounds just perfect for me to tool around town with.
    It will arive next week. I am so happy and excited. I will keep you updated.

    See, I didn't forget you guys!

    Grace (a Phillip's 20) has been undergoing a major makeover... she gets her new rubber (Schwalbe Marathons) tomorrow.

    She is already faster than her garage mate Forrest.



    Updated picture - New rear wheel, tyres, saddle, and pedals.

    Well I have looked at the add for this bike and it looks exactly like my EZ Fold, 16"" wheel bike,only mine is a 6 speed. It is ok, but prefere my 7speed Dahon. Lighter than the Dahon, and easier to pack and carry though.
