If the drivetrain is working nicely, and the spread of gearing works for your riding, I wouldn’t upgrade to 27 speed.

What type of DLT Dahon is this?

Morning!

I am having difficulty working out which Dahon this Bocas DLT most resembles.

Any ideas?

It‘s from about 2011.

Also, how does one best fold it? I didn’t have much luck and...

Another option:

if your freewheel has an 11-tooth sprocket, I bet you could use an old triple crankset minus the big ring.

That would give you something akin to the ‘sub-compact’ that is all...

Just got this one too for €10 - looks like a project!
