I am a bike racer and mechanic. The S-1 is an awesome urban bike. The weight mentioned by another reviewer is an advantage, not a disadvantage, as this bike's chromemolly frame is virtually indestructible. The weight represents quality construction, and allows this bike to be ridden over potholes at 30mph downhill without breaking, day after day. You can literally throw it in an suv, and never worry about damaging it. The single speed makes riding it ultra-simple, and you get a GREAT workout when pedaling. Ultra-stable and a joy to ride.

If you want multispeeds or less weight, choose a newer Dahon, but if you want ultra-reliability and utility, this bike can't be beat. And at this price, you can't go wrong.

I motorize these bikes, and have never had a frame failure after 12,000 miles and 3 years on the same bike.

I hope Dahon keeps making them forever.

Awesome, ultra-tough bike !

This is a great bike. Some of my friends, who have much more biking experience than I do, were skeptical about the idea of a folding bike. Now that they've seen how it works and tested it out, they think it's great. It's perfect for my lifestyle, because I live in an apartment & have to store the bike in the trunk of my car. It's extremely convenient; I ride it a few miles to class every day.

PRO:

- This price is nicer than other Dahons
- It is quite an attractive design, close to vintage folders from England
- all around, a good grocery & errand bike, if you have a few extra hundred to spend on a tiny cruiser
- Handy for travel when you need to pack it in a car or on public transit.

CON:

-HEAVY. It also resembles vintage folders in this respect! Just as heavy as 1969! :0
-Single-speed, and SLOW. It's a hell of a workout unless you're going downhill! (and I am in great shape)
-an intolerably uncomfortable seat, which just creates waste 'cause we'll all switch 'em immediately.
-scratches immediately when folded, and cumbersome to carry folded;
(would be much better if there were a latch to secure the fold,
and if it could be rolled along folded, that would be gold)
-cheap, hard plastic fenders, plastic chain-wheel cover... other plastic parts..
-I personally was also shocked at how LONG it is - It's kind of a big bike

All in all, I've bought WAY better used clunkers for 1/5 of the price of this Dahon, which serve the errand / cruising purposes just fine. This thing is kind of a useless toy, in my estimation (I returned mine). But for the people who are, for example, using it to cruise around a fairgrounds (as an above reviewer was), or motorizing them (as another above reviewer does), then it's a good frame: attractive, solid, and versatile.

I'm very happy with my 2009 Dahon Boardwalk S1. It's a very simple folding bike, and those who want more/better should be prepared to dip into their pockets for a fancier model. But for under $250 you wont find any better. I take it with me every day, and it has added awesome flexability to my daily routine.

I ordered this bike over the crappy mountain bike sold by the military PX at a remote base in Afghanistan. I received it in a week, assembly took about five minutes (out of the box, click, click, screw in one pedal and adjust the seat). Added a front and two rear baskets (Sunlite Mesh Bottom Bicycle Lift Off Basket, Black and Wald #582 Folding Rear Mounted Bike Basket), and I can do about 80% of what an NTV (read "Car") can do here. I am 220 pounds, the bike doesn't notice me, the mud stays largely in under the fenders, not on me, and it just goes and goes. Now, it is smallish, and basket placement requires a little fiddling to clear the back of ones boots when pedaling, but i can easily do five miles quickly with mail in the baskets, and not fret the occasional (like every three feet or so) pothole.

The one complaint I would have is that the tires are slightly narrow. This hasnt translated into a problem as such, but it does give me pause sometimes when I hit a rut or a hole. This is not a speed bike, or an off roader, but if you have a need simple, rugged, and compact, this is the tool for the job.

This is a good bike until something breaks. Then you find out that there is no source for replacement parts. Dahon expects you to throw the bike away and buy a new one, I guess.

This Dahon Boardwalk folding bike is an excellent bicycle. It's easy to fold up and put away when not riding, and takes just a minute to get it ready to ride. This was a present and my friend absolutely loves it. The bike was delivered fast and arrived in excellent shape.

I'm using the bike for 2 weeks now and I'm very happy with it. The bicycle seems to be solid for a daily usage. But you have to be cautious and avoid potholes and droping from curbs. Don't think about riding it like a regular mountain bike. The folding process is very easy and fast. It's basically three moves: lower the seat, fold the handle bar and then fold the frame. This one has a steel frame, so it's pretty heavy to carry if have to walk even short distances. But I found out that it's possible to drag it folded with the wheel rolling on the floor, so it gets much easier to wander with it. I'm keeping a review in portuguese language at [...] .
