Atombikes,
Looks great. I never did find a rack made for a 20" wheel bike so

Even if you have unlimited funds, spend it the way you want.
No need for full disclosure on how much it costs in the end, no guilt.
Your money, your choice.
Enjoy the ride.

The loop formed by the shifter cable, at the hinge, seems to put the derailleur slightly of adjustment.
So I guess leave the cable as is after folding and make the adjustment then.
Not a complaint....

I guess I should say the chain was riding up against the guard or
channeled between the guard and chain wheel.

If the freewheel is making noise and it bothers you then change it out.

Thanks for the update Yan.
I hope the 8H comes in red.
I found a little can of red paint at the hardware store
that was a good match to hide those scrapes and dings.

Also agree.

When and if the Downtube 8H comes avalable again I'll be in line.
If shopping you should definitely consider a Downtube.
I was completely happy with the product and service.
