RDV, I'm planning to purchase a second hand Dahon speed (or something similar). Unlike new technology (and batteries), bikes don't change that much over year. So purchasing a Dahon speed 7 at 350$ would be of great value. How do you do to change the part? Can you just get completely different derailleur for example?
I'm also considering the Downtube FS (http://www.downtube.com/Full_Suspension ... _Bike.html
). But UK prices are high and it's difficult to find a second hand one.
Wattever, is the spoke holes diameter equivalent to the fork dropout size? I'm not sure how to calculate that. BTW, the MXUS 350W weight 3 kg and the Cute100 weight 2.1 kg.
