Very happy with my citizen bikes
I have the Tokio, the Miami and the 24/7 (24") (the one I use the most)
And more happy still that none has been stolen :-)

2008 Brompton M3L

Finally pulled the trigger. I was going to buy the knock-off, but I read somewhere on the net you could get a used for the same price. So I did.

Just picked up a Dahon Speed Uno. I'm tired of LA traffic so I'm going to take a train 2X per week and commute the 3 miles each way to my office from the train station. I've already replaced the stock sear with a lighter one I had lying around. Folding pedals will go, and I'll probably get a new seatpost and handlebar. I think I can shave about 1.5 to 2 lbs pretty affordably.

Take off those reflectors, some lighter seatpost & seat, trim off some width from handlebar and some lighter foam grips, lighter crankset & b/b, or even go to a belt drive.. that'll make it plenty light.

A new commute means a folding bike was needed... so I've just fettled a Tern Link from my local shop, Bike Shed in Devon. Can't fault the bike or the service!

I picked up this weather beaten DAHON from CL for $70. Put on a new chain, brake pads, seat, and some steel wool on most of the rust. Good for short rides around town....

Good buy, this are some of the best of the simple, functional, coaster brake folders. I have a friend with a boat who keeps a couple with her at all times. Fell in love with first one, had to find another. Total price for both, $165.

I finally pulled the trigger and got myself the bike I have been wanting for a few years. So far just some short rides around the neighborhood, but I'm looking forward to having some time to go on a longer ride.
