why do you guys like these bikes so much? im not trolling, its a serious question. why not buy a better quality used bike?
you could buy a fully suspended downtube with sturmey 8 speed hub for 400 and change (with some bargaining). you could be riding it tomorrow! there are plenty of other nice folding bikes in your area. and several vintage folders as well for cheap. why pay full price for a lower quality bike??
