    I sold a pair of those last year. 2002 solds about right. Good full sized folders.

    +1 for Mérida, Yucatán. THE most bike friendly city I've ever ridden, and for the same reasons. Everybody who can't afford a car, or moto, is on a bike.

    Here's my '10 M6R. At this point there's really no mods just a green Brooks b17 special and matching grips. I commute to work 2-3 days a week on it here in Phoenix about 12 miles one way. A name? Well, it really hasn't struck me to come up with anything of note yet. for now it's simply the Brommer.

    My new folder arrived today. Citizen Miami. First impressions, needed alot of adjustments like brakes, derailler, handlebars where crooked, fenders where not bolted on straight, quick releases where not tight enough. Rear fender had a big scratch from where the pedal was zip tied to the frame.

    After 1 1/2 hr adjusting, took it for a short ride. At 32 lbs, handles sturdy and stiff. It seems really slow. I plan on changing tires to Primo Comets. Not bad for a $200 bike. I plan on doing a longer, better report after final adjustments and doing my commute next.

    I will be putting my Brooks B-15 on tomorrow, orginal saddle was very uncomfortable.

    I have a rim with a Sachs 3x7 from my Vision Clwb, thinking about installing it for better gearing. It has 0 dish, so that might be a problem.

    Just got my first folding bike this week, don't have a name yet, but it is a smooth ride

    Its a Dahon Briza D7, 24 in. wheels, a bit heavier but I liked the curvy frame too much to pass it up. Going to use it for casual rides, and for my short commute to a new office job.

    This is my Dahon speed 6. I use it during the week when I am in London. I very rarely fold it, just to put it in a cupboard at work when I head back to Scotland for the weekend.

    I commute about 7 miles each way most days, Abbey Road, Baker Street, Hyde park Corner, or Edgeware Road Hyde Park, Belgravia.

    I spin out in 6th most times - it is low geared. Ride is very stable, but the front is a bit light in the wet and I've locked the front brake and skidded the front a couple of times (tourists in Hyde Park).

    I put on a full size rear rack so I can carry a full pannier with laptop, also use SPD (M520) pedals.

    I don't use lycra on this, wearing baggies. I am going to get a T shirt made with "You have just been passed by a 50 year old Scotsman on a folder.......how does that feel?" which should wind up the courier wannabees in the smoke.

    Upright position is great for vision and I really have grown to love it, Ideal for city living. It also makes my road and touring bikes at home feel soooooooo light at the weekends - I think my Cinelli Super Corsa climbs hills on it's own!!
