20 inches x 2.0 = offroad fun !


Minefields anyone ?!?

On a whim, a friend and I decided to drive across the border to Malaysia. The town of Johor Bahru to be precise. On a whim we stopped at an ATM before crossing. On a whim we both withdrew a lot of cash. On a whim we each got a Dahon Speed 8. One white the other black. Not on a whim I did some research prior.  The shop in JB had a good deal throwing in the rack and fenders for MYR$2000 even. The same bike back home had a list price which was 30% higher without rack nor fenders. Done deal. Bless this JB shop, they had the black American in their rafters a few months later…..


How it looked, brand new. An indispensible accessory is the truss mount up front which surprisingly fit the dedicated Dahon bad as well as my trusty go anywhere Ortlieb handlebar bag.


Initially the Dahon saw more coffee joints than touring trips. It was thrown into the deep end when Cambodia and Vietnam came up. And the coffee is mine, the phone holder/purse isnt !
