    Dahon V

    How are the Dahon V bikes compared to current models for spares, weight and reliability?
    I tried to search on Dahon V but could not find much.

    Funny you post this. One is for sale on Craigslist DC right now. Or did you see that one and it prompted your post? I know nothing about them. Heavy though! The poster said about 30 lbs for the one he is selling.

    hard to compare.... the current ones are all much better in the riding department.... seems Dahon has put a bigger emphasis on rideability than the smallest fold or the lowest weight or or ....

    BUT folks who have the old ones seem to love theirs ....

    but its like an old british convertible roadster ... they have charme and are just gorgeous but will be outperformed by every Toyota on the road..in every detail ...
