    Ha. I like your style! I know it would work well for me too. I have never had the chance to take Mr Foldy on a train. I do have to do a long distance train commute every week, but for reasons too...

    I don't always carry my bike bag as it makes the bike really dirty. Sometimes, about once a year I meet the jobsworth bus driver who won't let me on unless the bike is bagged. The other bugbear is...

    Wow. It looks like good value. I would have snapped it up for 200.00 in a flash. Would much prefer the bike to the Mini actually! (The original mini - now that was a cool car.)

    100% agreed. I wouldn't suggest otherwise. I'd welcome NYCe becoming involved in an open manner is all.

    Replacement magnetic fittings for Dahons are pretty cheap and easy to source. I assume all the Speed frames are unchanged, if so its an easy fix? Good luck and enjoy your new folder!

    In Scotland it gets wet and windy in the winter. (Much like the summer actually.) A lot of the time its just cold and bright though. That can be brilliant cycling. So Mr Foldy will continue to be...

    Well this thread is totally cheering me up! For the record I'm wearing fairly bland bike leggings and tops - not the poseur stuff. Its the right gear for the rain, wind and the cold which happens...

    What should I wear on my folder?

    I commute 7 miles each way. Much of it is open road. I find I prefer to wear cycling gear, a bike top and the old lycra leggings. But when Im dressed like that I seem to get more pointing and...

    "Hither and yon" is it? Its not every day I hear that expression, and its one of my fave's. Can I ask where in the world you are?

    My dahon set lasted 200 miles. I have slowly realised that my bike rested on the same pedL on the bus. It was folded but i think it took a strain. Now i cushion it.

    My front hub just died. The bike isnt a year old yet. I love my Mu but I wish I had got a reputable bike shop to service it from ne. Lots of silly fettling issues all year.
  18. The dark nights are drawing in..........

    With the depressing thought that its already getting dark earlier, a young man's thoughts turn to rear lighting. I need a rear light to fit the seatpost of my Dahon Mu. I need to remove it too. I am...

    Yes that's exactly the sort of video I wish Dahon made! Its quite a nice looking clamp mechanism on that Tern. It is totally different to the Mu though.

    Mr Foldy is a Dahon MU P8. He isn't a year old yet and has done around 2000 miles. I have never looked at the frame hinge, until it developed a ticking, clicking noise. It took a while to isolate it,...
