I just got a Tern D8. Since it has been a bit too cold to ride here, I have been playing with the new toy. I was thinking to take it on my next trip, I was wondering if I needed to protect the RD some way and suggestions on how to protect it. Should I shift it to the lowest gear for transport?
I was also wondering, since the bike frame fold to the left it leaves the RD unprotected. It seems that it would be better to make it fold so the drive train is between the wheels and frame parts, and protecting the drive train.
Also about pedals, do you use SPDs on your folder? the SPDs are pretty small do you remove them for transport?
