BIKES - Vitesse D7HG




Vitesse D7HG

£419.99 RRP




...lunch rides to that new café.
...a weekend trip to the farmer’s market.
...stashing behind your train seat.
...commuting to work.

The Vitesse is for those who want the ultimate bike for urban commuting. We took our award-winning Vitesse D7, added an internal gear hub plus components from top component suppliers. Then we topped it off with mudguards, a rack and even a trouser saving chainguard so you can ride in any weather. New for 2008, the Vitesse gets upgraded with the robust new Radius handlepost. We’ve also added a new model with a smooth shifting Shimano Nexus 7 speed hub.


Luggage bracket on the frame allows the use of hundreds of KlickFix compatible bags and baskets.

7005 aluminum frame with customdrawn Sonus tubing is light and strong.

Radius Telescope handlepost adjusts to fit riders of all sizes.

FREE TUNE-UP - a £30 value!

Dahon requires all of their bikes to be checked and adjusted by a trained bicycle mechanic before riding.
This activates the warranty and you can then upgrade to a lifetime warranty simply by sending the warranty card in.
Without this service, you'd have to bring your bike down to the local bike shop for a tune up before riding and you'd get charged up to £30.
We offer this service for free, so when you get your bike from us, all you have to do is unfold it and you can start riding.

*Note: These are Dahons standard model specifications. We do our best to ensure that the specifications listed here accurately reflect the exact parts found on our delivered bikes. However, component changes do occur for various reasons and there may be brief delays on site updates. Dahon reserve the right to make component changes without prior notification, which may cause discrepancies with the information listed on the web.
