For the new model year, Dahon has released a range of new folding bikes for every price point. From single speeds to Rohloffs, to mini full suspension systems, they have a bike that will suit your needs.

Pictured above, the Boardwalk S1 is a single speed folding bike that costs $299 and comes with a rear rack, full fenders, and a kickstand. At just 27.6 lbs, it’s a great gateway folding bike.

Kudos to Dahon for quality at (mostly) low prices. The split-off Tern brand is imho better but also costlier. Also nice to offer a suspended bike. Can’t compete with R&M on quality and looks, but price matters.

Looks like an old Cannondale Super V rear suspension
