Hi, guys.

I'm shopping for a folding bike for my husband for Christmas. I don't know anything about folding bikes. I don't know what brand is reliable, what to look for when shopping for a bike, etc.


Please help?

Well- first day out!

My Dahon arrived yesterday with some minor problems. I'm new to bicycles but after poking around the world wide netweb I found out that my front wheel needed to be trued. My front brake was totally screwed up and I didn't know what to do about that.

I took it to my campus bike shop, for 25 dollars the kind fellow trued my wheel, fixed my brake, and gave the rest of the bike a tuneup. Money well spent. It rides wonderfully now.

My first trip out was to the local "Steak and Shake". I arrive, fold it up, and quietly walk in holding a big green mess that looks like a Huffy went through some traumatic experience. The employees were eyeing me like I was one of "Americas Most Wanted". The manager approached me, eyeing the bicycle and asked "Do you want a table?" I politley said "Yes, one please!"

Neatly tucked under my booth I enjoyed a sloppy cheeseburger, payed, unfolded my green mess and rode home.

I'm finding it hard to pedal in heavy wind but I guess it's just something I'll get used to.

I've not yet figured out a good way to carry the bike blob. I've decided to go to an army surplus and find some straps so I can carry it on my shoulder... I hope.

After eyeing it for a couple years I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my slightly used Dahon Boardwalk D6.



It'll likley be coming on monday. I'm both excited and nervous; it has a fixed handlebar height so I'm worried it might be set too high for my prefrence.

WE'LL SEE. DUN DUN DUN. I've got $255 of buyers remorse slowly creeping up behind me.
