    Fauvette,

    I'd also like to toss in what type of riding you're into, what type of multimodal, etc.
    I ultimately chose a Xootr Swift because I wanted a zippy, fun to ride bike, with minimal...

    I'll chime in.

    Look into a used Japanese hatchback. I personally like the Honda Fit.
    However, I'm still driving my '97 Corolla with no hiccups.

    I didn't do anything yet.
    I've been too busy driving around because of work.

    My recent gig is closer, so my swift will see more action.

    Any suggestions regarding the rack, mudguards?
  5. Can Dahon accessories be used on a Xootr Swift?

    Some of the Dahon parts on the ThorUSA website are very attractive to me.

    While I still think that my Xootr is inherently better than any dahon on the market, I've got to really say that they make...

    What tube to get for a Strida XT?

    I'd bought a strida clone from Bruce a bit ago.
    I tried selling it, but couldn't.

    Then, I fell in love with it again at the CDA convention.
    In about five minutes, I was able to picked up...

    London tube strike

    I just read about the London Tube strike.

    How are you guys doing across the pond?
    Have you been able to win any new converts, or are people just chuffed?

    Guys, ever try a Swift?

    I have a feeling that you might be happier with one.
    Stiff, fast acceleration, and it folds.
    That being said, this Hooligan looks like a lot of fun.

    It's the pedal.
    The pedal is bent at a weird angle and won't unscrew with my pedal wrench.

    The crank itself is fine (I think).

    Not a knock on your wife's tastes, but your bicycle makeover is much classier than her Burberry bag.

    You should seriously contact Dahon and ask if they'd hire you for special editions.

    As for a good name...you can probably name it whatever you want and get away with it.
    After all that engineering, it can even be "Sue."

    For me, I hate using the word "resolutions" (since I break 'em).

    3. Have fun with friends.

    It is stiff. I highly recommend the thudbuster with it (unless you're as well-conditioned as Jur).
