Dahon HIT

Dahon is coming out with a new world market 'pandemic special'. 20", fold-in-half, nine-speed, 300# limit Deltec cable-reinforced frame with ten-year warranty, dynamo hub + LED headlamp. They say "spring, 2021".

I've seen some suggested retail pricing from $425 to €560, depending on local tariffs, fees, shipping, etc. If that holds, it's a pretty impressive spec for that kind of money.

The model features special graphics of a fist smashing a COVID virus.

Sounds almost too good to be true. If it is, it could impact sales at Citizen, Zizzo, etc.

Thanks! Great deal. Dahon's warranties are not worth much in my experience, but that frame design is a classic for good reason.
