Frankly, I think you should hold off on the softening process. If you want to put a few specks of dressing stuff on the saddle when it arrives, go for it. But personally, I hope mine never softens up...

I've had my Mobiky for several months now. I purchased it used from a fellow FB forumite. It gives me a lot of jollies everytime I ride it. It's just the thing for popping out the door for a quick...

I think you'll pay close to US$90 for a Brooks B17 standard seat. But IMHO, it's worth every butt-sparing penny. It's what I have on my Curve D3.

There's a bike shop just south of the antique section in Orange, CA that had a Giant Half something or other and a Dahon Curve D3 last time I was in there several weeks ago.

I have both a Curve D3 and a Mobiky, and I'm very happy with both and prefer not to be without either one. They sort of complement one another in that if I want to ride along distance and not stop to...

Bikecology on Lincoln Boulevard in Venice, CA had a 2008 Curve D3 last time I was in there for $529 I believe. I think it was within the last week. If you don't mind the drive, they may still have it...

Well, I have a used Mobiky and I really like it. Folds in a wink and rolls folded like a dream. Very small footprint, rides nice, and I'm pushing 200 lbs. With the kickstand it has, you can stand it...

I suppose you could say that all (or most) bikes have their compromises, but after having a Curve for a few months, for me the bike is perfect. It's smaller than many (most?) 20" folders, the curved...

As a new Mobiky owner, here's my 2 cents worth. The bike's extremely quick to fold, and quite narrow, plus it does seem to steer quite easily, and will turn on a dime (almost). Oh, another plus, it...
