A "Holy" Foldy


With a population of 1.4 billion people, the smart money will want to penetrate the vast China market, foldy manufacturers included. Imagine if you had 0.1% of such a market? This works out to be over 1 million foldies you can sell! Dahon has been in there for sometime and a friend who went to Beijing came back with a very cute foldie called the Dahon Dove.

Those familiar with Dahon will know they had an entry level model for kids and women called the Sweet Pea. I think this is the replacement model and it looks like a minature version of their famed MU series. It sits on 14 wheels and is a single speed. Its also only 7.9kg! This must be the perfect "spare" foldie for enthusiasts to just potter down to the shops and for casual and easy riding.
.
Its white paintwork makes it look really cute too and if you look carefully, it has a decal of a small dove. For Christians, this is indeed very symbolic as it represents the Holy Spirit. I can see mass orders from churches for this model!

Best of all, Dan bought it for only abt US$200. I'll take 10, thank you.

Mark 1:9-11 (The Message)

At this time, Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. The moment he came out of the water, he saw the sky split open and God's Spirit, looking like a dove, come down on him. Along with the Spirit, a voice: "You are my Son, chosen and marked by my love, pride of my life."
