Folding is pretty easy and takes about 10 seconds.
I just needed a folding bike that is convenient and easy to fold and fit into my car trunk.
I have no complaints over the build quality or the components used.

First of all I am not a bike expert - take my word what it is worth for. I bought Dahon Jack D7 in May 2010 and have put on about 900 miles on it. I wanted to drop a few pounds and found it too daunting to jog for an hour daily. Instead, I bought this bike as a lazy man's work out machine. I must say that I enjoyed riding this bike. More importantly, it didn't need any maintenance during this time, except inflating the tires couple of times. It held on pretty well. For the coming season, I got it serviced (before 1 year free servicing assurance it came with ran out) already. On the plus side it's light, sturdy, and feels comfortable for a 180 lb guy. It runs pretty smooth on mud roads and bike paths. Schwalbe Big apple tires are pretty good (and pretty fat) and you do not need the extra balance/expertise of the Pros to ride on them. I paid the extra bucks for this bike for the sake of its portability. Folding is pretty easy and takes about 10 seconds. I live in a 3rd floor Apt. - moving it up and down is pretty easy for an adult (It weighs about 13 Kg). Once folded it fits into the trunk of mid size sedans. Gears shift seamlessly and Derailleur works fine. Seat post doubles up as an emergency pump.

On the negative side, adding fender/splash guards is pretty tough job, especially the front one. I tried couple of them but finally gave up. For the rear fender, I bought a SKS X-Tra-Dry Fender and it worked fine. Given that it is a folding bike, it is not that easy to design add-on friendly frame. Another annoyance is the seat. It's too small and hard as a rock. I bought some seat cushions but it still feels tiny for the comfort ride - pain around the butt, literally! It is significant issue because this bike is not for hardened Pros - it is built for casual riders.

I have owned three Dahon folding bikes; the first one I bought in April 2003, a Matrix for $400, which lasted until September 2009 and I rode that bike every day, putting, by my estimate, around 20,000 miles on it. Fantastic bike, the aluminum frame finally wore out and broke beneath the seat. So I bought a new Matrix (for $749) right after, but Dahon changed the frame and after less than a year of riding it daily, an OC bolt came out and now the bike is no longer a folding bike, as I had to lock it down to compensate for the missing bolt. To make matters worse, it turns out that the company no longer carries parts for it - a bike they sold only a year-and-a-half before! So still wanting a folder, I looked up the Dahon Jack and saw that it actually uses the older type of folding mechanism, but is only a 7-speed as opposed to the Matrix 24-speed gears (and yet costs $500). But it is lighter, and suits what I mainly use it for, which is mostly paved trail riding. I did note that the folding mechanism was incredibly stiff, and has only started to loosen up recently even after applying oil to the hinges. So, now the latest - as I was climbing a hill the other day, I hear a loud POP and notice that the rear wheel is wobbling badly. Fortunately I was near my car, so I took it in, and, as I feared, a spoke broke at the hub. I have only had the bike for two months... I don't know what it will cost as it's now in the shop, but even if nothing else goes out on it, I am through with Dahon for good. Their products have diminished in quality significantly these past eight years, and their service is lousy - they will not even speak to a customer - you have to go through a bike shop.

When the bike arrived I had a few problems attaching the handlebar. The stem to which it attaches was fixed in the reverse order and it took me a few hours to figure out that it can be loosened and rearranged. This was a problem when the bike was assembled by the shipper. Also the front brakes would not work. Upon taking this to a cycle shop and getting a tune up plus $3 for a new front brake line it rides great. I now have racked up to a 100 miles on it and the noise from the gears are minimal. This is much better than a Schwinn 700c road bike I had before in terms of easiness to pedal. There were a few times when the road debris would have caused my older bike to have a puncture but no problems with these. I love the tires on these and would recommend them to anyone.

The reason for not giving 5 stars is:
1. The assembly of the stem which holds the handle bar was facing the wrong direction when delivered.
2. The front brake line had to be replaced. ($3 extra plus after tuning cost)

The reason it got 4 stars is:
1. Tires hold air beautifully (Havent had to fill air in about 2 weeks) and no punctures
2. Minimal rolling resistance
3. Minimal noise from the gear system and smooth changing of the gears
4. Killer looks :)

Bought this bike in 2008, fits in the trunk of my camry and wife's hatchback focus easily, tires are great, bike is extremely durable, I get it tuned up before every summer, keep the chain greased up, and never have had any issues with it. Highly reccomended, however not cheap (price has gone up, I got it for $400 in 08), but the folding capability and the pump that comes as part of the seat have come in handy MANY a time. Dahon makes a great product, the bike is full size.
