  • No real threads here on them - anyone ride them?

    Thinking of getting one for those days when I don't want to ride the whole hog using cyclescheme.

    Brompton seems a bit OTT price wise, so what else is there?

  • The cheap ones are Ridgeback and Dahons but don't know anything about them, I was looking at the Mezzo ones but that is still Brompton price territory.

  • Utfs

  • James Martin ought to ride a collapsing bike

  • Today I saw someone riding this bike on Theobald Road (fixed wheel with the rear brake removed), I thought it look fantastic, a folding 26" fixed wheels bicycles, look lovely in the flesh especially with red anodized hubs.

  • I think that is the Cadenza and I think there are issues with the joints on the frame I was looking at one of those or the Jack (cheaper) as some places will let you take in a folding bike to work which would save me the worry of locking it up outside.

  • A cheap thought it maybe, but as Diable says, their reputation is shonky as.

  • They don't have that bike anymore in the 2010 line-up, in fact the 2010 Cadenza (no solo version) end up looking cheaper;

  • That looks awful Ed, the white one is ok and if I still have a job/C2W scheme I may go for one and spend some money updating the components as it does mean I can fold it up and take it into work/dole office.

    I own one, ride it every day, super duper, a great purchase. Componets could be better but for £340 quid it was a barging in my book.

  • The old one is much much better looking, here's a 2008 version;

    was that you I met today on Theobald Road heading east?

  • not me, I go south on Southampton row, I've only seen one other and he rolls with me until Theobalds so it was probably him.

  • Dahon bikes are poorly constructed.

    Mezzo bikes have over complicated the folding process and haven't improved on design.

    If you want a machine that you can trust stick with Brompton or a Moulton.

    The money you will save on a Dahon will just be put back in to it when you have to replace the wheels, drivetrain etc.

  • Oh and the Cadenza has a common fault of the spokes snapping, the folding mechanism ain't too smart either.

  • Lugging my normal is killing so have bought folding, anyone else got one? If so can it be converted to fgss easily?

  • What did you get?

  • Got a brompton here. Can be quite easily converted, if you have a hub gearing system then just take out the hub and replace with something else. If not take out the cassette and derailer.

  • Folding bikes are the HHSB/Low pro for 2010.

  • Er, don't forget you can't fold a Brompton without the chain tensioner. So fixed would be difficult but SS quite easy.
