Yan-- did you have any complications with using the seat on a 20" bike? P.S. -- I'm still amazed at how good my wife's Downtime is, and what a great bargain it was.

The foldie saves some space and could be thrown in the car or on the train more easily. I really like being able to do that now. It'll be a $200/$250 premium if I can find a used Dahon Jack. It's not a must have though.
