If commuting for you means needing a bicycle you can fold up to take with you into the office or apartment, then you’ll be interested in this Dahon Boardwalk review. This is the least expensive Dahon folding bike and looks like a great beginner commuter bike.
The Dahon Boardwalk folding bike is a single-speed folding bike with a hand brake and coaster braking system. It’s relatively large 20-inch wheels are nice for a folder and for being the cheapest Dahon folding bike available, it’s not too bad. Of course, this is Dahon, one of the biggest names in bicycles.
Looking around the Internet, I see a lot of reviewers talking about this new model. Most people seem to love them for short-distance riding to work or school.
At the price, though, there are some drawbacks to this one. First, as a Dahon folding bicycle, it doesn’t have all of the comforts of a large-frame, full bicycle. That is to be expected of any folder, but this one is also relatively heavy and doesn’t latch closed when folded, making it rough to carry for some reviewers. Because it’s also a Dahon single-speed bike, you won’t get too far too fast, so be realistic about how far you really are going to ride this thing regularly.
With all of that, at the price, it’s a quality ride. So if you’re looking for a commuter and need it to be compactible, then the Dahon Boardwalk folding bike might be your ticket.
