What is the source of your information? My sources say otherwise. There may be a small penalty but in the grand scheme of things, it is smaller than you'd think. If it were really "a lot" more, you wouldn't see world speed records being made on small-wheeled aero-mobiles.

I still have the bike


I am sorry it took so long to respond. I had not logged in to this site for quite a while.

To answer your question, I still have this bike but I have not ridden for over half a year. Reason being I have been recovering from long term illness and being in and out of hospitals and nursing homes.

None the less I am much, much better and hope to be "on thne road" again soon. Yes, the little Solorock has been a good bike. No complaints.

Grace and Peace,

The other thing that is really common in China is for a couple of guys that work for Dahon go out on their own and start a new company. Most all of the components are available off the shelf. You can have almost anything produced fairly quickly if you find a factory with a little bit of spare factory time. Many Chinese companies will put any label you want on the bikes they have designed and built---or designs they have built for other companies.

It's funny when you look on alibaba, you get 100s of different suppliers of folding bikes and many look identical yet the price per bike varies enormously. Some because they are reselling other factories production but others just a difference in pricing. It's pretty obvious different companies are manufacturing exactly the same geometry bikes though and from what is written they will put on any brand you want. As low as $25 for a basic steel folding bike that looks ok viewing on a web browser at least.
