Dahon Espresso Folding Bike Review

The Dahon Espresso folding bike is a full size folding bike for those that want a folding bike that’s the size of a normal bike. This has some benefits and some draw backs. The good thing is that the Espresso is extremely comfortable to ride. But a little bit bulkier than your normal sized folding bike. The good new is the bike is its still easy to fold and light weight to carry around. The manufacture claims it folds in 15 second, I say more like 20 but still that’s fast!

I bought the Dahon Espresso because I started having to commute a little farther to work everyday and the long distance was killing my back with the regular folding bike. I wanted the ease and compactness of a regular folding bike but with the comfort of a full sized street bike.

In a true urban environment where the small wheels of your average folding bike give you issues with potholes and steep curbs, the Espresso rides like a champ. I’ve put this bike through hell and back and it still looks brand new. It can definitely take a beating.

I have no regrets buying this bike and enjoy riding it everyday. I find the price relatively inexpensive compared to a lot of other quality bikes out there. I rate the Dahon Espresso folding bike with an A+++.
