    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    Looks pretty cool

    I loked at it on the Dahon websirte and choked on the $2000 pricetag at first. But looking at it closely, it's a fairly high-end and very lightweight (22.6 lbs.) steel hardtail with high end components. I guess it includes the suitcase too (MBA story kinda says it does) so it's a actually a good bargain on a high end steel HT that as a bonus can easily fold up to go anywhere. I want one!

    Have to look very hard to see...

    ...that it's a folder too. No big ugly lugs where it comes apart.

    The downside is that it takes 10-15 minutes (they claim) to fold up or down. So it depends on why you need a folding bike: for transport in a car/airplane or to do a daily cram into a NYC apt (which would be twice a day, to go in and out of the apt).
