Here are two of the things that make folding bikes so useful:

1. They are great for mixed mode transportation. I have taken them on trains, busses, planes, and put them behind the back seat of cars as small as a Geo Metro. It is quick and easy to take my bike with me when I go places. Sometimes I ride one way and come home by other means. They are incredibly fun and useful to take along if you have to travel for work.

2. They are small and easily stashed. That is why they are very popular with boaters and people who have to take their bikes up crowded elevators.

I like models with 20" wheels best. The bikes are small and light enough to transport easily, and the performance is good enough to enjoy riding all day. I have ridden my Dahon Speed P8 as much as 90 miles one day in New England, fully loaded with touring bags. Sure, my full size touring bike would have been a little better for the task, but I had a great time and it was very easy to get my bike across the country to start the trip.

I have had several folding bikes over the last 20 years. Of these my Dahon has seen the most use because it is quick and easy to fold and unfold, it handles very well, and it climbs hills easily. Dahon makes a very broad range of models and they sell for very reasonable prices. - Neil Wechsler

Mariner D7 Bike MARINER D7

Designed specifically for boaters, the Mariner D7 makes your on-shore adventures a lot more fun and convenient.

It stashes easily into even the smallest of boat holds and storage spaces. When you arrive at a port of call it unfolds in seconds to help you explore or shop for supplies.The Mariner folding bike is the perfect accessory for any size boat.

Speed D7 Bike SPEED D7

The Speed combines sporty performance with terrific value.

The frame is hand-welded from custom-drawn 4130 chromoly Sonus tubing and incorporates six different patented technologies, resulting in what is probably Dahon's stiffest frame. The Neos derailleur is fast-shifting and has a nice wide, gear range – perfect for urban riding in most cities.

Speed Uno Bike SPEED UNO

At 24 lbs, the Speed Uno folding bike is one of Dahon's lightest bikes. One of the reasons for this is the single speed with a rear coaster brake.

Without brake cables and shifter cables, this bike touts the utmost simplicity. There is practically nothing to adjust or maintain, so for a flat commute, it's a great option.
