A follow-on to adventures and misadventures with the Dahon Matrix in Boulder. What's cool. With the Hutchison Python tires, the Matrix (as expected) was quick on hard-packed trails and (as was unexpected) a rolling-nearly-fictionless joy on roads. What's not. Tried single-track over a bridge. Went off-track with the hard-to-single-track fat Pythons and crashed onto the same knee that got trauma from black ice in Boston. What's cool. Got to know Doc Scheller who is the court-physician for the Celtics. Wry advice from a guy who fixes $22 million knees. "Don't fall off the Matrix!" Actually, plannng to pursue Doc's personal fitness/conditioning regimen- Hatha (I think) Yoga everyday.....
