Rare Dahon SpeedTR Touring Folding bicycle for sale

Well used but extremely well maintained high-end 24 speed folding touring bike for sale.
Used for fully loaded touring and general cycling - crossed the Canadian Rockies and did the Camino de Santiago, Le Puy to Compostella over the Pyrenees (I did help a little!).
The bike shows a lot of transport wear and tear but has been properly serviced yearly.

Many years left in this extremely sturdy 24 speed internal Sram hub system. Follow link below to see specifications - PLEASE NOTE, my bike has no front baggage carrier but it can be bought and easily fitted. There is a Brompton block fitted on to the front stem so Brompton baggage can be used.

Bike can be picked up in central London or can deliver within two hours of London as long as there is a nice club site nearby!

It will go up on Ebay shortly but I thought I'd give my bretheren first dibs.

Reason for sale - a new Kalkhoff electric bike for the old knees

Are you trying to call Barry's bluff. He has been making noises about a folder to go with his new Lycra suit.

You are soooo transparent Barry. You just want a clearer idea of who Tuggles has been allegedly kanoodling with!

To put you sort of out of your misery, here is a link to a the facebook album of said tour:

The bike went to a new home yesterday, and I felt rather teary seeing it go. So many adventures together...
