Yes, pix would be great :D:D:D
Ok, you know that you can't just throw that out there w/o some details, right?
C'mon Mister P...throw us a bone :cry:
I see this is your first post, so welcome to the fold :thumb:
As for your questions, I'm not sure you should upgrade any parts until after you've ridden the bike a little (sounds like you don't...
Looks like the Downtube Novas have been reduced to $299 (from $329). I probably shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, but am wondering why the price was lowered. Perhaps clearing out the 2013...
Good point...I was thinking of myself :p
I don't know...now I'm thinking #4 which is quite stylish as well.
I would choose option #2. It gives you a nice balance between headtube support and standover clearance.
Ok, summer is officially here...so what's the latest on the new Mini?
Speaking of fotos, Mr P, weren't you supposed to post a few of your personal steed? :innocent:
A few years ago Dahon did the limited edition "Hon Solo" that was kinda like a Dutch bike:
I'm betting the Bahamas have some great, year-round cycling weather. I'd be curious to see the company owner's personal Downtube...how its been customized, etc. Any chance of a pic? :ride:
Since you'll have the camera out, how about snapping a photo of the company CEO's personal bike. It's always interesting to see how the producer of a product (bike or otherwise) customizes it. :)
I always liked the idea of a derailleur-spec'd Mini, but the Capreo drivetrain was pricey, pushing the original shipped price close to $600. I know there are clearance issues with 16 inch wheels,...
Lots o' discussion about IGHs. Does this mean we will not see a "Mini Capreo" version with a derailleur? :innocent:
I see there are new photos of the Downtube FS in red and yellow on the Downtube website...both look great :thumb:
That's great :thumb:
Here's info about a guy who used a Dahon Jetstream for some extreme off-road duty:
I think the main reason anyone would buy the BAs is for their "suspension" qualities as they aren't a fast tire. If you're interested in speedy, high pressure tires then supension is probably not...
Nice write up. Sounds like the stock rubber is a thumbs down. If you do replace them, what tires would you choose?
Where is this bike available?
Something is not right here...if you look at the main pic the fork appears to have uber-rake, but zooming into the mini-pic (one on left), the fork rake looks more normal.
Ok, you know you can't just put that out there w/o us harassing you for details. Do tell all...:rolleyes:
Admittedly, I might have played a "tiny" role in creating the price confusion...:innocent:
Just to set things straight, here are the (shipped) prices for all 4 bikes discussed in this thread:
Yikes, that doesn't sound good. According to your blog, you paid $266 for this bike...I'm starting to side with the folks that say return it and go with the Citizen Miami. The other option is to...
I probably shouldn't press my luck, but do you have any pix of the Citizen Tokyo at a slight distance? You have some great pix, but they are all close up and I'd like to see the whole bike in one...
I've had shifting problems on some cheaper drivetrains and switched to friction thumb shifters:
