    Single track on a Dahon Speed 8

    Just took the new Speed 8 out on some single track trails in the Sandia foothills. I was careful with the low derailer, and stayed off of the big rocks, but was very impressed with how easily the bike picked a precise line, and how well it climbed. The stock road tires left me spinning a nit, but shifting the weight back was easy and helping get some travtion. I think this is going to become a regular part of my ride Any other trail riding experience on 20 in folders?

    I put 20X1.50 tires on mine. The 20X2.0 were too big and heavy for me.
