Mine is a Bike Friday Pocket Rocket:



I live in Tokyo and currently cycle about 100 km per week. I have a bike bag for taking the folded bike on trains for rides further away from Tokyo. Yesterday I went on my first club ride, with my Bike Friday the only folder along with 15 full size road bikes.

It's time to find my '02 Dahon Mariner 26" a new home. As the pic indicates, the bike is in EXCELLENT condition.



My interests have shifted elsewhere... a vacation home overseas, a Cyfac road bike, etc. As this bike is in excellent condition, any suggestions on where to advertise so it finds a quality home? Also, what's a fair market value for this bike?

Thanks all!

Hi, I am a newbie here.

I have a new Breezer Zig 7 (re-badged Dahon Vitesse) which I am enjoying very much.
In the shed there are two more folders a Kent Stowaway with a cracked headtube
and an old Dahon 16"

I haven't posted an update of Fugsley in a long time.
Dahon folding bike with Harley Davidson tires and OCC STingray frame parts and a water ski rack thrown in.
You can see the entire build diary on Rat Rod Bikes here
http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/vie...p?f=21&t=44315

Here is the frame with no tires.


And with tires

Raleigh Twenty

I just bought my Raleigh Twenty at a swap meet today. In my haste and excitement I forgot to take a pic, and I had to leave it at my friend's house as I rode my other bike to the swap meet. The thing was in basically perfect condition as far as a bike from the 60s? 70s? goes. I've been lurking all over the net for the perfect folder/minivelo and have been in particular looking for one of these. The best part? 100 bucks.

Started off as the Monster Commuter with Big Apples - but those tires were just too big and I could not mount fenders with them. Going to try out the Duranos here...



Finally got my rack added and she is ready to go!

Score.

I think my affection for 20's is well known around here... will soon be added a Dawes Kingpin and Moulton (non folder) to the stable and the '72 was a wedding gift to match my wife's 1974.

I bought a Citizen Gotham 2, but I returned it because it weighed nearly 30 lbs. (not the 25 lbs. they advertised), then I got a Downtube FS9 which I quickly sold because it was not very compact when folded. I now have a green Origami Cricket and a yellow Origaim Crane. They fit neatly in the trunk of my compact car and are great fun to ride.

Nice looking bike. The other day as I arrived at work by bus, I saw my first Tern. How's the bike working for you.

So far, so good. I took a 16 mile ride at home in Michigan yesterday as it got up to 35 degrees. It's smooth, solid and fast. I really rides as well or better than my road bike. I'm in Savannah, GA now and hope to get a good ride in in the morning.

I've just bought a new bike. It's a Dahon Jetstream P8 folding suspension bike.





It's ace, it folds to next to nothing, but it's great to ride. I added better bigger tyres and some crank bros pedals as the original folding ones are awful.



I took a few more pics which can be found here for those that are interested.
