hi, thanks...i bought the Dash second-hand in 2014. Since then, during two tours, three countries, and till a few weeks ago it was my meat-and-potatoes ride. In that time it accumulated several battle scars, though structurally it is sound as ever. The tubes and welds are all physically intact. The LockJaw hinges still open and clamp shut fine. I've often ridden it roughshod as it were a veritable mountain bike. Not bad for an affordably-priced 'Asian' manufacture, hah?

In the meantime i have accumulated other bikes, so it is now time to decommission the Dash, perhaps permanently, perhaps only temporarily. The bike holds a special place in my heart for it was my gateway drug to small-wheel bikes, folding and non-. It is now headed to the shop for re-painting. When it returns, it will go on a wall as a decoration piece, to remain there as such permanently or to await its turn in the qeue for rebuilding...

The FSIR Spin now takes the Dash's place as my main folding 406er.

Why did you take the bike down to the Frame? Are the built pics after the build?

I am going to work on getting some similar bikes. Not really in Dahon's current offering but hey.
Where there is a will, perhaps there is a way.

Enjoy your bike!
