The 2 speed is a Sachs Duomatic. No shifting required, it automatically upshifts. This is a link to an excellent write up and what sold me on it originally and where I found the wheels: My Dahon Mu Duo - a blend of old an new
In front of the Serpentine, in London. Dahon Presto Lite converted to singlespeed with BIG ring to push those little wheels. Very light and zippy. I wasn't planning on going bathing with it.
Also have a Bike Friday Pocket Llama kicking around.

Tomorrow I will be taking the bus to pick up another specimen for the zoo... it was captured by a friend when he found it in his back yard and he called me.
Dahonis Marinus... despite being 30 years old it looks like it had a pretty easy life and was not afraid of humans, had it felt threatened it would have packed itself up in a little ball.
I understand it is already saddle broke so I should be able to ride home.
Rode around Riverside today and took some pictures along the way. Rode next to the Santa Ana River. Saw a small plane on my way up to Mt. Rubidoux. The scenery from this place is very nice. On the way to a park a saw a street with Chinese writing next to it, never seen that before in Riverside, CA. Weather was like in the high 80's to low 90s F.
that's some beautiful countryside there. compare some of your pics to this pano taken from the summit of Rubidoux in 1908: (view expanded full-size version)

Went for a ride down what I thought was going to be a paved path, but it dead-ended in a commuter rail parking lot. However, in a different part of the parking lot was a well-traveled single-track trail which led to this path under the power lines. Surprise wildlife sighting of the AM was more than one rabbit (sorry, no bunny pix):
On the way back, I stopped to take some shots of the Birdy against the train station building. This is the Terminal for the Newburyport MA - Boston North Station MBTA commuter line. Also note the brick arches -- "M" for mconlonx...

I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

Truly inspiring. Just got a Jetstream - thinking I can maybe take it on some rides that I might not have tried it on...
You are going to force me to post pictures of folders in snow and cold rain to counter your tropical photos. One more week of days getting shorter and nights getting longer, then winter really begins.

We are what we reflect. We are the changes that we bring to this world. Ride often. -Geo.-
Since my Ti Swift frameset is about to ship, it was time to get on the bikes last weekend. Took them out on one of our local Jogger/Walker/Bike/Horse trails and had a great time...
