This time - more serious.
Dahon vitesse and MU 7 HG . 600 and 800 quid respectively.
anyone experianced either of these ? looking for ride 11 miles and 6-10 miles each way(depending on which office im at that day) with a train journey inbetween. But also something that would cope with the entire 35 miles on the ride home if i wish - an thats highly likely.
Want hub gears thats a given - preferably 7 and i want 20 inch wheels. the above 2 models are the ones that jump out. dahon spec them with an 34-84 gear inch selection - can i just swap out the sprocket/cog to give me more like 100/110" - not too fussed about the bottom end tbh run an 88" on my fixed wheel and find i spin out more often than i strugle to climb something.
decided im as well buying the right thing first time than essentially wasting 300quid on cheapy ones ....
If there is anything else you suggest then im open ears . but brompton can go get bent. Too many propriatory parts,too expensive , wheels too small and i dont live in "that london" so will have hard time finding bits - moultons seem popular up here though but not really a folder !
over to you ! (quit laughing you at the back)
Btw at the suggestion of the LBS i was in at the weekend perhaps we should open a book on how long a dahon frame lasts with me on it !
