I really like the Dahon Curve. It got an overhaul at the LBS but then got tucked into a hidden corner to come out for Christmas for my daughter. I've forbidden myself from riding it beyond some basic test rides for ... testing... yes, testing.
Honestly, I'm not fond of the ride. It seems a bit small for me, this might be that I haven't really tinkered with the fit too much. Again, I haven't really ridden it beyond up and down a gravel driveway. I can tell just by the feel that the breaks and some of the other components are higher quality than ones on my Cricket but I still like my Cricket too.
I tested a Brompton and several different Bike Fridays... wow they are all amazing machines. When I was riding the Brompton, I couldn't stop grinning. After the Brompton test drive, I drove down to Bike Friday thinking 'naw, I'll just get the Brommie' but the Bike Fridays they ride better overall I think then the Brompton. That and they have more options. They are also local to me. Sigh. My head says Bike Friday but my heart whispers Brompton. I know you really like your Brompton so thought I might ask your opinion about Bike Friday.
