When I posted this, I had seen some great looking frames on Aliexpress. Even my local Craigslist had some Banian folders on it. Love my Dahon Curve though, and was able to find one.

Sweet setup Abu. How much weight are you carrying in each of those bags? If it isn't too personal, what are you carry in each bag? Also, what is the rear hub? Internal/derailleur combo?
