    Here's my folder, what ja' think?

    Picked this up on CL. At first I wasn't going to keep it. It didn't feel quite right. Then I replaced to original gum-walled tires with knobbies, trued the wheels, repacked the rear bearings, and adjusted the headset. Now it rides pretty good and I think I'll keep it. It's nice having a bike that I can fold and put into the trunk of the car. I also degreased the chain and relubed it with WhiteLightning dry lube so that I don't get chain gunk all over me when I'm carrying the bike around. Anyone familiar with these bikes. I added a close-up pic of the decals.

    Very nice, I had one they are a bit on the heavy side but they do ride nice. If I had kept mine I was going to swap out the front forks to make it lighter.

    I noticed this bike has single-walled rims. Maybe I'll think about getting some stronger ones. I will be riding this bike on some trails and I like my bikes to be reliable.

    You should take a look at Montague's newer models. They've come a long way since that original frame design. They're certainly lighter now and a lot easier to fold. Check out http://www.montaguebikes.com/2010-folding-bikes/

    I wonder if they would give me a trade-in.
