    My "New" Downtube 9 Silver

    Been commuting on a "hot-rodded" (i.e. 11 tooth freewheel, upgraded derailleur, 100psi kendas, Brooks Saddle) Citizen Tokyo for this past year, logged about 750 miles on her and decided to upgrade to a larger, better quality folder. Found a 2010 Downtube 9 Silver on Craigslist and picked it up last week. Great condition - I just put on my trusty Brooks B67 and she was ready to roll. Wow - what a difference from the Citizen. Better quality components and much better fit for my frame. This bike really moves too! You don't see too many Downtubes out there but what a great bike! Here are a few pics.
