It's not a low-end Dahon, it uses a cromoly frame, alloy crank (with fancy steel chain guard) and alloy seatpost; plus a dedicated Dahon-branded shifter, derailleur and 5-speed cassette. The...

Try to test an H model Brompton if you can. It's marketed to taller riders but I'm 5'-6" with arthritis in my wrists and couldn't make the M bar work. The H is taller and works for me tilted back a...

I think the SF Craigslist seller's price is unethical gouging, and the fact they're still available supports this. But who knows, maybe he'll get lucky one day.

Well sure, you can just pretend all those changes would work when I just factually claimed they would compromise the design. You can also claim a $500 carbon road bike isn't a death trap, but I'm not...
