    Yes, I read Suicidal Cycle Path. Highly recommended.

    Edit: Wait, you meant "our" as in the folding bike community? Um, no I don't really know of anything.

    Thanks. I still have a lot of time before I get my Pure Fix so maybe I have to catch up on what are the current offerings in wheel rims out there. As long as they are all generally going to be...

    Lighter Velocity B43 rim alternatives?

    Hi,

    I've heard good things about the performance and looks of Velocity B43 rims. However, I also hear they are heavy. I want to eventually put something comparable in looks and performance on a...

    Maybe. But compared to what we can do today, they are very plain. And I did say "the Model T of today." It's the principle of minimalism, not entirely the esthetic I'm talking about. Although the...
  5. Doesn't this look like the Model T of today's bikes?

    I have been thinking about what will someday be considered the classy looking bicycles of our time and, after viewing countless pictures online, I have to say the Dahon folders can really pull off...

    Well, no matter the quality, as long as the bicycle is of a quality good enough for basic riding (at the least), it's always going to boil down to personal preference. People of different body types...
  8. Bicycles that only have their looks going for them, a second glance.

    I have been doing some thinking about low end bicycles with high end looks. Bikes that almost unanimously get condemned as a waste of money on serious bicycle forums such as this one.

    Thanks, guys. I was worried there for a bit that I might have to return them. They look pretty beat up. I'm surprised anyone would sell tires as "new" looking like they do. But, if you say it's okay,...

    20" Shwalbe Marathon tire question

    Just received them today. I never ordered tires over the internet before so this may be a stupid question. Should these things be a little bent out of shape? They look a little crushed and twisted...

    Yea, I've been drooling over their panels for the last couple of months. Maybe some day....until I can afford those I will probably just get the sherpa with the inverter and one of goal zero's...

  16. Should pedestrians be permitted on bike paths?

    This whole argument of whether electric bikes should be permitted on bike paths seems like a huge fake out to me.

    Basically, the argument goes that electric bikes are a danger to pedestrians....

    Folding Electric Bike

    I have a Dahon Speed P8 with a Bionx kit installed on it. Should I be worried about damaging the wires when folding the bike? Especially the wires going to the battery? I bought the bike for its...

  19. Anyone try to put a Physis 3D on a Dahon yet?

    I've stumbled on a few threads from recently and the past where people have shared from bad experiences to mistrust of the handle post on a variety of folding Dahon's. This is starting to unsettle my...

    I have heard Tern builds better handlebar stems-- their Physis 3D exactly. Do you think it is possible to replace a Dahon folding stem with a Tern? They are basically cousins, right?

    If you mean the hole on the left side of the image you posted, I just checked my never ridden Dahon Speed P8 and there is no screw there.
