Here is a Dahon Curve SL listed on ebay. Guy has it listed incorrectly as a Dahon Uitesse (typo of Dahon Vitesse). Has Big Apples and a X/S-RF5 hub in it.

Because a FOLDING bike is usually for most riders in general. If you're in the "Folding Bike" section of the forums, it's common knowledge.

I have a folding bike–a Bike Friday Pocket Rocket. It has a size. I'd be surprised if such an expensive bike as that Tern has no sizing. But perhaps it doesn't, in which case I doubt it's worth the money.

Regardless of you having 1 of the few folding bikes that come in sizes, who are you to judge? I guess that means a Brompton, Birdy, Mezzo, Oyama, Java, Dahon, Downtube, and various other bikes aren't worth the money because they only come in 1 size. What you've claimed is totally ridiculous.

You are a calm and reasonable person, and your argument is very convincing.

3 speed Brommie of $350 in Santa Rosa

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/bik/d/brompton-collapsible-bike/6543085953.html

I know it is “just” a 3 speed, but, barring age, it looks like a whopper of s deal.

My condolences. I’ve noticed a darn good resale community for both Brommies and Bike Fridays in NorthCal. I’m in SoCal and more than once I’ve contemplated hopping a train to head on up the coast to get one.

Happy hunting and good luck.

Was only a little over an hour away from me (I'm in Berkeley). Oh well. I should probably sell my Bike Friday first (I've got two and only need one). Saved from myself, lol.

Bike Friday is one of the very few folding bicycles that does come with a size. Most do not.

Many folding bikes are highly adjustable in terms of sizing. Seatpost, handlebar post, and sometimes stem.
Bikes with greater slant in the seatpost also spread buttband hands further as seat goes up.
As such, most of these bikes are highly adaptable to different size riders.

Once in a while I see people at the margins but not frequently.

Hope this helps.
