One freezing and respiratory tract infection-inducing Chicago winter, I decided to build up the folder I'd been fantasizing about. I purchased a Dahon Boardwalk, stripped it down, and replaced all but the frame and fork. I wound up using an upgraded Dahon stock front wheel, since 74mm hubs are a difficult to find. I went through a few handlebars before settling on some trimmed Nitto North Road bars, which are comfy and don't compromise foldability. It's a fun little bike.
