Over the last few months we have received a number of enquiries from people who wanted to know more about Downtube folders. Our knowledge was limited to what can be found on their web site, but last week they kindly sent us a bike to test. The model we have is the top-of-the-range IX FS, which has 20 inch wheels and front and rear suspension. We should have a full report in 2-3 weeks time, but initial impressions are quite favourable for a very competitively priced machine. We should have the test bike at the November Origami Ride, which starts from Derby railway station at 11:02 on Saturday 11th November (see the Origami section of the Events page for more information), so if you are coming to that ride you will have a chance to look at and try the bike.
