Aug 17, 2007
If biking is your passion then you must be one of those individuals who are fussy about their machines. Chances are that the convenience and the comfort levels of your bike matter a lot to you. If this be so, then go in for the folding bikes. And in particular, the Dahon folding bikes should be your choice.

What Are Folding Bikes?

Folding bikes are bicycles with a lot of hinges and joints that can be folded up to trim the size of the bike. And with the bicycle frame brought down to a manageably wieldy size, you can carry it around in public transport; have it stashed away in your car or in some corner of your apartment. Folding bikes also do not require much of a parking space, making it easy for you to travel with it.

Folding Bikes From Dahon

Dahon is a name to reckon within the bicycle manufacturing world and the leader in the production of folding bikes. In fact, this Los Angeles-based company is a trailblazer of sorts when it comes to folding bike technology.

The company has perfected the technology and the fact that it has till now sold more than 2 million of these bikes in more than 30 countries is ample testimony to its expertise.

Dahon is never short on ideas when it comes to folding bikes. It has several innovative and groundbreaking bike models to its credit, all hugely popular amongst the biking fanatics.

For instance, you have the Allegro make that has its frame modeled upon the famous Ritchey Logic frame. And you can be rest assured about the quality of the machine because the frame is hand-welded from the Italian-made Ritchey WCS steel tubing. However, the prime allure of this Dahon make is the fact that it can be bundled into a small suitcase in only about 10-15 minutes.

The very popular Ciao P5 folding bike from Dahon is a bikers delight, and especially the rookies, people with back or leg injuries and women wearing flowing dresses.

This stylish bike comes with an assortment of bells and whistles like the Hella lighting system to help you in the dark; SKS mud guards to ensure that the ride does not turn out to be too muddy and also an ArcLight rack to hold your paraphernalia.

Dahon has broken all myths regarding the folding bikes being fragile with its Fuego model. When folded, this pint-sized dynamite is basically a full suspension MTB designed to suit the demands of pro-standard Marathon/Enduro riding. This is a robust bike featuring a double-butted 7005 aluminum frame that also incorporates 4-4.5 inches of front and rear travel suspension, the Patented Interlock Joint Technology and the legendary Joe Murray LSR linkage technology and Threshold Linkage Design. Furthermore, the whole ensemble, elaborate though it may sound, can be packed into an airline suitcase.
