    You are probably right about the rip off, have been travelling regularly for shopping to Belgium and France for 10 years and even with the weak pound still better off

    I just can't believe the UK price. I bought a Dahon full size folding mountain bike for that price 4 years ago.

    Hi Toffs-G - is that a blue roan on your avatar?

    In 2004 I had a good buy in Kortrijk - saved £12,000 on a hymer:thumb:

    Great to ride I had always had large Raliegh bikes and then when i tried a couple of folders thought wouldn't bother then tried the Dahon and it is not a million miles away from a full size:thumb:

    Hi Mike Rudkin

    I got the Dahon Zero-G because it's full size and folding is just one clip on the frame. I

    Rides like any other ATB I've had. Have worn one set of tyres out so far. Front tyre replaced after a large puncture but rear only replaced when it didn't have enough tread.

    Only time I realise it's a folder is when I put it in the MH's garage::bigsmile:
