These Dahon commuter bikes are really handy if you live a short ride away from the station, and with a pretty good discount too. There are a few styles on offer, so check out the other bikes too.

This one, the Dahon Curve I3 2018 16-inch wheel folding bike, comes in red and is ready to ride straight out the box — making it a great option for the daily commute.


"For quickly nipping into town, climbing on and off the train and convenient storage, the Dahon Curve i3 folding bike is difficult to top.

A lightweight alloy frame featuring V-clamp technology to fold the bike down to small dimensions, 60x57x34cm. 16 inch wheels not only provide a neat and small folded footprint, they give a nimble and fun ride quality too.

With 3 speed gearing, you've got a perfectly balanced spread to get you where you need to go. The gearing system is neatly contained within the hub, protecting the components from the elements meaning you'll have considerably less maintenance on your hands. A chain guard protects your clothes from chain oil, while integrated mudguards protect you from road spray so you can commute without working about getting mucky.

Powerful V-brakes keep your speed in check when you're whizzing through town, and an integrated luggage rack allows you to carry your gear without weighing yourself down. Ready to ride straight out the box, the Dahon Curve is the perfect companion for your every day riding."

I have tried many folding bikes and settled on a Brompton even if they are so much more money. That said there are some Dahon models/clones that are not bad. Tern is a splinter off company (same Dahon family members) that are good too.

The only problem with them is that models change every few years and then parts become harder to get. You can buy parts for Bromptons that still fit or upgrade Bromptons made 30+ years ago!

My 12 year old Brompton (purchased on cycle to work for £350) is still going strong and having a steel frame over these other Alloy ones, means they will last much longer. Most of the Dahon type folders will have failed hinges after about five years assuming you use them every day over the simlar daily use of a steel framed Brompton.

Heat added, great price for a quality folding bike, these are so handy and portable. Great for storing in the boot of a car on days out.
great bikes but I can’t work out how to wheel mine by hand while folded, I remember I got shown when buying but forgotten

I understand that longevity, but £900+ is a lot of money whichever way you look at it.
Yep they are expensive. The Dahon/Tern is certainly an alternative and not bad but there are some truly terrible folding bikes around.

The OP listed a 16" model which is why I am comparing it to the Brompton. The 20" Dahons are more comfortable to ride (but larger folded) and the 16" wheeled one listed also does not have any give/suspension in the back wheel frame unlike the Brompton. It will probably be pretty uncomfortable to ride after a couple of miles.

Very good deal for this Curve i3, a 3 speed Brompton with rack & mudguards would be £1,125.
"SORRY, THIS PRODUCT IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE."

I remember looking at a Dahon in Halfords a year or so back, it was only a basic freewheel model but the frame wasn't particularly well welded for neatness and the bike seemed very poor value compared to the Carrera models next to it which had far better components for less money. The reviews of the bike on the Halford's site were generally negative too at the time. Halfords have since stopped selling Dahon's it seems. My point is like many brands Dahon buy from different factories, some models they design themselves and have made for them and others are brand slaps. The jetstream is a fuji-ta model with a Dahon brand slapped on. Most if not all Dahon's for the european market are assembled by max.com in Bulgaria. So like many brands Dahon are not a consistent quality and their bikes should be assessed on a individual basis.

Another 16" wheel folding bike option here. It's a bit dearer but has a similar 3 speed Nexus hub with a coaster brake I think but is also an e-bike and has a shaft drive rather than chain. Very decent price for the spec.
