Product Description

The Espresso is the bike for urban adventures: to the park on a sunny weekend; down the street for a lazy Sunday brunch; or to the market for some fresh penne, organic tomatoes, and a bottle of wine. The ergonomic saddle, BioLogic grips, and upright riding geometry make cruising around town fun and comfortable. Upgrades to the new 2010 Espresso include Schwalbe Apple 2.0 Tires and new Dahon Axis Stem -- With over 120 mm of height adjustment, and over 85 mm of reach adjustment, the revolutionary Dahon Axis stem accommodates riders of just about any size, whether they prefer a comfortable upright riding position or an aggressive performance riding position. But even more exciting is the new stem storage system that lets riders easily rotate the stem 90 degrees and out of the way for storage or transport. That means easy convenient folding for Dahon full-size bikes. The Espresso folds in seconds to stash away easily in a car trunk, your apartment, or on the bus. (Folded Size: 13.3" x 36.7" x 30.8") Upright and comfortable riding position. Folds in less than five seconds so you can take it anywhere. Fold it and store it in your trunk so you save the cost and hassle of a car rack. Shimano 21 speed drivetrain. ***THE CURRENT 2010 MODEL DOES NOT INCLUDE SEAT POST PUMP***

Dahon completely backed away from their 1 year warranty.

Basically, I love this bike, and I'd recommend it for anyone who wants a bike that's both flexible and capable.

I really like that it can fold--it fits in the back seat of my old Honda Civic.

I've had this bike for three years, and have no idea how people can complain about durability and comfort problems with it. I originally bought it as a bike for college, where it conveniently (though barely) fit under a dorm bed, folded up. (I've found that it also fits well in car trunks.) I used it this way for a year and a half, before deciding to take some long-distance biking trips. My normal road bike was unavailable at the time, so I rode this one. My first trip was a four-month ride from mid-Pennsylvania to coastal Oregon (about 3000 miles), and the second was from Idaho Falls to San Francisco (about 1000 miles). The bike performed well through a wide variety of conditions, including paved, gravel, and dirt roads, off-road trails, and in snow and heavy rain. Even pulling about 200 pounds of equipment (between a trailer and panniers), the bike rarely required maintenance beyond tire pumping and chain lubrication. The only crippling problem that I experienced was a worn out tire, toward the end of the second trip. (There were also some repairs to minor damage, such as punctured inner tubes and a slightly bent wheel, but nothing that I wouldn't expect from any other bike under similar stresses.) Although comfort preferences vary, I found the bike sufficiently comfortable for days that often included over 12 hours of riding.

Most of the time, I almost forget that it's a folding bike. The folding mechanism seems well-designed, and I've never had any problems with it. The folding capability is also subtle enough that most observers wouldn't even guess that the bike is capable of it. But when it comes to storage and transport, it's still very much a folding bike.

After everything, the bike still functions well, and I use it for getting around my neighborhood. Basically, I love this bike, and I'd recommend it for anyone who wants a bike that's both flexible and capable.

I have had this bike for a year.

I am a little disappointed with the folding latching mechanism; I think it could have been designed a bit better. I put velcro over it to keep it in place. One time while I was riding the bike actually started folding up on me; weird experience, but fortunately no harm done to me or the bike!

After purchase I had a bike shop tune up. (I got a tuneup Groupon). This made a world of difference in the bike's performance, and I highly recommend it!

I'm 5'11, 185#, and I find the bike quite comfortable. I generally ride 12 miles or less per trip. It's not a lean mean road machine, but for short trips I actually prefer it over a hybrid bike I own. I like the wide tires for city/suburban biking, although wider tires are not speed demons.

This is a standard size bike, and is not, in my opinion, light weight. It is not easy to lug into our transit system (BART), so I don't use it for the purpose I originally purchased it for. I CAN, however, fit it in the back of our very small German station wagon. If you have a bunch of kids you can put their lighter bikes on an exterior car rack, and put one or two of these inside your SUV without too much difficulty.

I have had no maintenance problems; it appears to be one of those purchases which may last a very long time.

Verified Purchase
They are a huge improvement compared to our ratty old bikes. We like that they fold, we can fit two of them behind the drivers seat in our F150 super crew cab... They ride like a proper big bike, great for getting around town, or the campground or whatever. But they are still big when they fold... Due to the bigger size tires. Everything has its pluses and minuses. All in all we're glad we bought the pair, and really like that we can keep them locked inside our truck when traveling and not using them vs having them hang off the back on a bike rack or something. All the folding mechanisms are very well designed. Glad we went for the best vs trying a cheaper option then having to upgrade.
I am 5'6" and the medium size is perfect for me. My husband is 6' so size large is best for him. We did have some damage in the initial shipping, but the company we bought them from we're fantastic about sending a replacement and making sure everything was good. They get very high marks for their customer service.

I bought the Dahon Espresso 20" 2008 model from a different vendor. I have some experience with bike repair, so it was easy to assemble. This is more a city bike than a road bike, although the handlebars are low. I changed the stem-extender so I could raise the bars. The current handlebars seem a little less flat, and the current stem extender is totally adjustable. Over the first 2 years, I wore out the bottom bracket--I'm not an uber-cyclist, but I do like to go on short road trips for fun--20 or 30 miles or so--on the hills here in Western NY. I've replaced the bottom bracket with an inexpensive external-bearing set from Shimano, and I was quite pleased that the frame didn't need any grinding to align the new bearing. My bicycle had a freewheel-style rear wheel, which I replaced with a cassette-style wheel to give me more flexibility with the gearing. When I changed the bottom bracket, I got a crankset with replaceable chainrings, to have make for easier powertrain service and more flexibility, since the original crankset had riveted chainrings. I love the index shifters--as an old cyclist, I remember my pride in how well I could shift with friction shifters on the down bar, but now I'm really happy to just push a button and have a nice solid shift without any effort. The folding latch is actually quite solid, and easy to adjust once you figure out that it goes backward from what you would think. It does need to be cleaned and lubricated a couple times a summer, but that's not difficult, either. I really like that it can fold--it fits in the back seat of my old Honda Civic.

All in all, this is a bike with a really good frame with some components that could be better, particularly if you want to ride it out onto the road at all. I've put about $250 of new equipment on it, and I'm pretty happy with it--luckily, I bought it after the model year, so I got a good discount, and I'm still under the current price overall.
