    Today's bicycles superficially look like those of the 1890s, but they've seen 12473 detail refinements. In that same way, the NuWave follows Le Petit Bi of the 1930s:

    As much as I like the super compact folds of bikes like the Curl and EEZZ, I wonder if maybe a fold like the NuWave's would really better meet the needs of most folks.

    I'm impressed with the claimed 36# weight of the center motor NuWave 20 e-bike.

    Twist crank - brilliant on paper. If it's just as brilliant in use, hopefully it will see wider application on Dahon's model line up.

    don't think the NuWaves we get here will have the twist crank though . I do like the regular crank with take off pedals better

    I like the MKS take-off pedal system and their myriad of offerings. The thing I don't like the proprietary Dahon Quickdraw pedals is Dahon only offers one style of pedal. I think the Quickdraw pedal will go the way of those I-Beam saddles Dahon fitted for a few years.

    John I agree at least somewhat. The Dahon pedals can be unscrewed and replaced with MKS not a big problem. As far as I beam..... we do have plenty of seatposts in our warehouse. Saddles are still available from other sources. The idea behind this I beam stuff was to save quite a bit of weight and have more adjustability. I think the problem with that is however that the saddles available were more racy and no real wide comfy ones were available ( to my limited knowledge )
    But again I do agree, Maybe we get the the Nu wave without pedals and add here what the customer wants. We do have all new MKS pedals in stock as well
    :-)
    Thanks

    I just am looking forward to seeing what will be available on the thorusa.com website. I'm loving the fact it doesn't fold in any portion of the frame. It'll be much stronger, and handle heavier riders with ease IMO.
    Meh,...

    its our ( Dahon ) motor in cooperation with a leading Chinese expert. We will handle all service here. If there is a problem with Motor Battery or Controller we will have plenty spares the minute the bike arrives here. If you are interested I assume that Dahon will work with you to obtain the same system. Its light, doesn't make noises, its powerful as well. No jerking when you start from a standstill. With the small integrated into the frame battery it does not have 100 miles of assistance, but the lightness makes more than up for the reduced distance. There is no standard in measuring distance as it depends on how much you pedal, what gears you in, what weight you are, temperature, the route you take and so much more. In most cases the distance is highly over inflated
    anyhow. The cool thing with a 36 lbs bike is that you can easily just ride without the motor, a task which seems simple , but did you ever try just pedal a 50 lbs bike up a modest hill ?

    we shelved the nuwave for the US market but rather bring in 2 more regular folding bikes, one bafang hub motor and one mid drive . battery in seatpost they are both much nicer than the Nuwave . they did get delayed due to all that corona stuff but are produced now, I think they are ready actually and waiting for a container should be here in June/July 1600 hub and 2000 dlr mid drive 43 lbs each

    I hae some pics andspecs on my site www. thorusa.com
