2013 Dahon Boardwalk S1
From everyday commuting, to impromptu errands, to bike path explorations, Dahon's Boardwalk S1 is a one-speed wonder that's always ready to go. Its high-quality steel frame rides like a champ and folds in seconds. It also puts you in an upright position for top-notch comfort and a heads-up view of what's ahead. And, in the components department, the Boardwalk gets up to speed with ease on the nimble 20-inch wheels and simple, one-speed drivetrain that needs minimal maintenance. For speed control you have a linear-pull brake up front paired with a coaster brake in the rear. Plus, with its rack, fenders and comfortable seat, the Boardwalk is always ready to be unfolded and enjoyed!

We fit two in rear seat area of Cessna 172. While steel,not aluminum, weight is acceptable after factoring design simplicity,comfortable saddle,upright handle bar orientation, and adult gearing. Easy to unfold.
I had always wanted a folding bike, if not just for the convenience of having it stashed in my car for a myriad of reasons from camping, visits to parks or emergencies. I looked at all the offerings on-line from the high-end expensive folding trail bikes down to the cheapos and read all the reviews. All I wanted was a simple bike to unfold and go. I had pretty much settled on getting a Dahon since they've been manufacturing them for a couple decades now and figured they had run all the bugs out. To my surprise, the Dahon Boardwalk is a ruggedly solid bike that I have now put many miles on. This is my only bike and it is such a pleasure to have it stowed in the car for an excursion on a whim. It's not bad, either, on an easy trail. My only complaint is the rear hub sprocket is a bit high gearing (small) so I've ordered a bigger so it'll be a little easier on a grade.
