    I think this may do it for me, I really like the old 8H after all these miles.
    I agree Yan it does seem like a tough crowd.

    Atombikes,
    Looks great. I never did find a rack made for a 20" wheel bike so
    just put one on that I had on hand. A little high but not really a problem.
    I also let a little air out of my 100psi...

    Even if you have unlimited funds, spend it the way you want.
    No need for full disclosure on how much it costs in the end, no guilt.
    Your money, your choice.
    Enjoy the ride.

    The loop formed by the shifter cable, at the hinge, seems to put the derailleur slightly of adjustment.
    So I guess leave the cable as is after folding and make the adjustment then.
    Not a complaint....

    I guess I should say the chain was riding up against the guard or
    channeled between the guard and chain wheel.
    It's an easy fix but did get my finger tips greasy.
    And yes, I still like the bike,...

    I'm still undecided what upgrades to make.

    Paul
    If the freewheel is making noise and it bothers you then change it out.
    I still haven't changed mine but will.

    I notice for less than $16 you can purchase a 3 year warranty/service contract.

    Thanks for the update Yan.

    Also agree.

    When and if the Downtube 8H comes avalable again I'll be in line.
