Fits perfectly under a standard desk.

I've seen comments online that people were hesitant to buy a folding bike because it looks like a "clown bike".
Dan in Boston
The shift is easy and smooth, it rides beautifully, and it is very easy to fold.

I use this bike on my daily commute from New Jersey to Connecticut. I think it would be fair to say that this makes the trip from NY Penn to Grand Central Station faster than any other form of transporation including taxi and subway. I honestly don't know if I could do my commute without this bike.

As a person who's rode their fair share of bikes, I can honestly say that this thing is built to last. I've hit quite a number of potholes and uneaven pavement and have never felt like it was too uncomfortable. I've also dropped it a number of times and the worst that has ever happened is the chain has come off the gears and i've had to reset it by hand. Nothing out of the ordinary.

If I HAD to gripe about soemthing, it would be the ease at which it can be rolled around while collapsed. You can leave the seat extended and roll it balanced on one tire, but if you try and roll it on both tires in this way it's off balance. It's also slightly heavy to carry around for long distances. It's fine to run up and down stairs or through a train station, but anything more than that and you might feel some fatigue. But hey, if it's a longer trip than that, you should be riding it anyway.

Pros:
Quick and easy folding system. (I'm down to about 20 seconds to break it down)
Comfortable ride.
Works great as a portable seat when folded up.
Fits perfectly under a standard desk.
Having the extra gears (compaired to a 3 gear models) really comes in handy going up and down hills
Great conversation starter. If you ride this daily, people WILL come right up to you and ask you about it.
It's a beautifully designed bike. Very pleasing to the eye.
Chicks dig it.

Cons:
Slightly heavy, but it's cheaper than the titanium models.

My wife and I have been biking together for more than 40 years, in the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe. We presently reside in Yucatan, Mexico, own 12 different bicycles. Our Dahon 7 speed, 20 inch folding bikes, which we have owned for three years, have become our all-time favorites. City traffic, open road and bus, boat, air and train travel with these bikes that fold in twelve seconds has added a wonderfully new dimension to our lives. You can get rid of your car keys if you own one of these.
Why by from Amazon? They are reputable, dependable and stand behind their product. John Grimsrud, a happy and satisfied customer.

Don't be fooled by the 20'' wheels this is not a bicycle for children. I had it for a couple of months and I'm really happy with the way the feel. It is extremly easy to fold them and saves a lot of space, and if you get tired of riding just take them on the subway this time without getting all these evil looks from impatient passengers. They will be so amazed by the lsize of the folding bike and will save thier winning for the 26'' riders.

Great little lightweight bike, folds easy and looks nice. I've gotten numerous compliments on its looks. The ride is smooth and relatively comfortable, although I may trade out the saddle to improve comfort on longer rides. My only minor complaint is that the tires are a bit difficult to fill. Great bike for travel!

The quality, workmanship, frame-welds, and shifter-components are all outstanding. The Mariner is a well-made, well-designed bike. It's much easier to ride than I expected, more stable at low-speed (slow-walking speeds), and easy to handle and steer. One of the features I wanted was the non-corrosive marine-coatings for weather and ease of maintenance. I haven't had occasion to test this yet. I added head- & tail-lights, a bell to warn pedestrians when side-walk riding, and a basket for the rear-rack. Upgraded seat. Other than that, it comes ready for riding with very minor assembly out of the box. They packed carefully and shipped it well. Everything fits together well, no badly machined parts or burrs in the metal threads. It's a delight. It could be a little faster on the high-end (it's not meant for steady 25mph cruising in boulevard traffic), although my grandson says he can't keep up with me on his bike. I used to commute to work or school through light snow and ice, rain-slick concrete, gravel and sand-coated asphalt; I expect pot-holes and dirt-shoulders, so I have always asked a lot of my inexpensive road- and touring-bikes. In the past, garaging and storing was always a problem for my bikes; also transporting -- some of my vehicles were too small or wouldn't take a rack on the trunk. This bike folds and solve the transport and storage problems. I'm 60 now, less active, and less agile. But I'm wishing this bike had come along when I was 20-40. It's the commuter-bike I always wanted.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Old bike guy on July 2, 2012
Dahon has juggled some of the features among their various models over the past few years, so picking the right one can be a bit confusing. The Mariner shown here is nearly identical to the bike that used to be called the Vitessa D7. This Mariner (and the older Vitesse) uses the 7 speed cluster with the NEOS compact derailleur system. In 2008 the Vitesse D7 was replaced by the Vitessa D7HG. The HG uses a 7 speed enclosed planetary hub (think of the old '3-speed' bikes). Pretty much all of the design and features of the old Vitesse became the new Mariner. What was the Mariner prior to 2008? It was a more rounded tube steel bike.

With that said, I think it's pretty fair to comment about the Mariner, even though I own a Vitessa D7 purchased in 2007. With going on 5 years of use and better than 3000 miles, I still think it was an excellent choice, but it's not perfect. Accept that a folding bike is a study in compact engineering and compromises, so don't expect perfection, especially in this price range. For instance:

1) The stock seat can become painful in all the wrong places! I found a $75 saddle from Terry (Men's Liberator Y) was a good choice. Your butt might think differently...

2) The short wheelbase, large chainring and wide ratio cluster is a problem for cross-chaining, and the very compact NEOS can have a tough time maintaining smooth shift quality. Lots of cleaning, chain lube, minor adjustments, and gentle shifting is required. Don't expect Shimano 105 quality performance.

3) Little things like safety catches break.

4) Bearing quality is just OK, and after 2+ years of use I had to do a major teardown. Yes, a good owner would have done this yearly, but who really does?
