    New (?) Decathlon Folders

    Hi,

    I think this is a new decathlon folder with uno-ish tendencies ?

    Also they have a new "hoptown" range of which this is the top

    Any views ?
    it aint the size of your wheels, its the rhythm of you cadence. And I got powergrips too.

    Interesting, at 149 I was wondering if it would make a good basis for a lightweight duo hub, belt drive, run around. The bike as sold weighs 13.8kg. Single speed and a steel frame, so you would need to loose 5 or 6kgs to get down to Mu levels. Not possible, is it ?

    Last prices I saw for Downtubes were starting at 379 for the 9 speed front suspension model and going up to 499 for the fully sprung 8 speed hub gear bike. A lot more expensive than they used to be but Still good value for money, if they are still available that is.
