This is a slick, well-designed 8 speed folding bike from Dahon. I previously purchased a Speed Uno (also from Sports by Sager) and loved it and was ready to add a second folder to my repertoire. The speed uno is a great bike and fun to ride- the Qix is a great upgrade. The vertical fold is extremely handy and can be engaged and disengaged in about 5 seconds, even more easily than the classic folding mechanism used in Dahon's other traditional folders. A great feature is that the bike can be carted around by bringing up the handlebars and rolling it on the roller-blade wheel on the cargo rack. The ride is smooth and the components are high quality. It comes with fenders in addition to the cargo rack. It's ready to ride straight after unboxing. All you have to do is screw on the wheels and pull up the chain onto the gears. The seller (sports by sager) has been fantastic to work with. The bike was shipped quickly, the price was as good as anywhere you will find online. Buying with overstock club O gold will provide a solid 5% rebate and you get free shipping. I would definitely recommend purchasing a dahon bike from overstock and have myself already purchased two.
Looked around for ideas to get the bikes out of the way in the garage. Kept coming back to the tower style solution. Finally pulled the trigger and I am pleased. This tower is easily adjustable an very stable. I don't worry parking my new Range Rover Sport right next to it (and I baby the heck out of that thing) Set up took a little longer than expected but not terribly difficult.
I purchased the Plyo Box to bring to my gym because they don't offer any plyometric boxes. Plyometrics can increase the speed at which athletes can develop force and injury prevention for athletes in sports where there is a high degree of jumping, landing and side-stepping movements. Plyometrics have been shown to be highly effective in ACL injury prevention programs for athletes in sports such as volleyball, basketball and soccer (Hewett, 1996). The Adjustable Plyo Box is perfect for increasing my overall athletic power. Note: The Plyo Box only rises to 24" so if you need a higher platform you might want to consider an alternative to the Plyo Box.
