While waiting for my ultimate badass folding bike to be delivered to me, I needed something to keep my interest alive and occupied.. So, having being inspired by an older couple and their little bikes, I took the bite by ordering a 16" foldie.
This also partly because larger foldies are not allowed on Komuter train anymore (some ****heads brought their bikes to the train and created a stir recently, prompting KTM to charge RM10 for bikes that are considered as 'oversized' luggage).
That said, my journey to 'downsizing' began with an inquiry to my Dahon dealer. I was told that all high-end 2011 models for the 16" wheelers are delayed in the production line. *ouch!*
But I was lucky as there was a NIB bike in the company's inventory from their Indonesian counterpart. And it would take about two week for it to be delivered to KL and after a brief wait, it arrived...
So, here are some photos of my new ride:
