Vitesse P18 why was it discontinued?
I'm a long time lurker, first time poster. Because of all the great advice I got from this forum as well as the Dahon forum, I bought my first folder, a Dahon Boardwalk. I havent ridden a bike in over 15 years but after getting the Boardwalk, I am now riding almost every day. However, I now want to upgrade my bike to one with gears. I live in an area with a lot of hills and the Boardwalk just isn't cutting it.
I noticed that Thor has a Vitesse p18 for sale but I am wondering why it was discontinued. Should I consider other models such as the Mu or speed7 or 8?
I am looking to spend about $500-700 and would only use the bike for leisure purposes in an area with a ton of hills. I want a "forever" folder that handles hills well, is fairly versatile and can travel at a decent speed.
Thanks in advance for your help.
