My buddy is training for INTEL in China for about a month.
Of course, I could not help but think "hmmm... Birdie, Dahon, there are others being built there, or nearby....should be able to get us a sweet deal on a few bikes...?"
We both would love Bromptons, but are in no position in life to spend a grand on a bike. But $100 or so... we could. I would like a good solid folder for when I need one around town. Good quality, maybe capable of touring.
I ride a 19" frame via my Hybrid or a Medium frame on my Uptown 8 Breezer. Specific bikes we should look into and any details about traveling home with them on the flight (baggage check in?) as well as size would be great.
I would also like a Flying Pigoen to put better components on in time, something upright and comfy. I assume those are under $50 there? That might be more involved to carry on the flight though, but it might be easy enough to get a box from the pigeon dealer or just get one already boxed up?
