Well, I’m a bit excited as my folding bike has arrived. I purchased a custom built Dahon Speed TR from C H White of Malmesbury in Wiltshire. I was able to consult with Tim and he helped me choose what I needed. I was able to ride a friends Speed Pro which helped me decide.
I didn’t like the silver colour on other Dahons as I hated the textured finish so I asked for black stem, handlebars and seat post. As the colour said racing green , I was suprised it was so dark. Almost black in fact but I like it better. Here are a few photos which show it in its various stages of unfolding
I chose to have a front dynamo and front light. I haven’t tried it but it doesn’t have the automatic setting like the one on my Koga. The rear light is battery powered but is multifunction so better than the Koga , so all in all should be fine .
Now you are wondering if I’ve tried riding yet. The answer is no as the rain is belting down and the wind is really blowing strongly, not quite storm force but getting near to it. Hopefully tomorrow. For now I have just been practicing the folding and unfolding.
