    Any tricked out folders?

    Does anyone have a tricked out customized folder? Racer, tourer, trail bike, town bike? If so, let's see it!

    So I'm still getting used to the Sram Gripshift. The Dahon one wore out and the new one works in the opposite direction.
    The Phil Wood front hub is stellar.
    The Paul rear skewer is also an excellent part.
    Shimano crankset and Wolftooth ring are a ton better than the stuff that came on the bike.

    Thudbuster gave me the 1 1/2" extra height I needed and protects the frame from my heavyness.

    The Velocity Cliffhanger rims made the bike perfect.

    Very nice NY. The polished aluminum frame would be my choice too.

    Very nice. I think I saw that ControlTech makes carbon wheels in case anyone wants to go over the top.

    Thanks. Mike, I had to bite the bullet and go with the Phil hub. Bitex makes one but NO ONE could get it for me. At least the Phil Wood was easy to obtain.
    Smokingman, I have too many kids to put carbon wheels on my folder.

    I sure did. I also tried to get wheelchair hubs from him as well. He can only get oddball stuff like that on a minimum order of 200.

    I have one of his 130mm hubs on the rear. It's been completely trouble free.
