Bikes: Brompton and Dahon Curve D3
Because of limited funds, my wife and I purchased a cheaper folding bike. We had the opportunity to buy the newer model that has the black posts, but opted out for fear of them getting scratched up. Obviously then, the more expensive models like those from Brompton, as an example, don't fall under that category, but I'm sure the cheaper model that I passed on by would have been a nightmare due to scratched up parts. This is nice to know for future purchases as I do like the looks of the black seat and handle bar posts.
