The Urban Commuter’s Dream
Each city is unique in the public transportation options it offers. Moreover, each individual has a prefered transportation method for his or her commute. This posts is geared towards the city biker and anyone whose commute is partly dependant on a bike ride.
The California based company Dahon pioneered the folding bike over 30 years ago. With 220+ patents a Dahon bike is renowned for its portability and functionality. Their design award winning bikes are built to adapt to the commuting challenges of an urban lifestyle.
The company uses lightweight and durable materials such as aluminum, carbon fiber and chromoly, to make their products lighter and as durable as a standard bike. The lesser weight and the folding mechanism are key features for those looking to get around on subways and busses, especially during rush hour when some cities don’t allow bikes on public transport. A patented EEZZ folding technology allows the Dahon bike to fold down faster, easier and smaller than any other bike. There are 4 points on the frame that help shrink the bike to about a third of its size. Featuring a D4D stem and Flatpak technology the bikes are able to be reduced into a flat, 2-D figure – which means no more dealing with protruding pedals or handlebars.
Dahon folding bikes are easy to use, carry around, and store while offering all the features of a regular city bike. Just be mindful that the folding bike has smaller wheels than a regular bike, therefore you will have to pedal slightly more – but we can't blame them, it's just how physics work.
