Espresso Large

COLOUR: Brushed Aluminium with clear coat

...Sunny weekend rides
...Exploring the new bike path across town
...Cruising slowly down the boardwalk while enjoying the city lights

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, tomatoes, and a bottle of wine. For 2010, the Espresso gets a complete makeover. The patented new Dahon Axis stem lets you fold the Espresso with a minimum of effort and Schwalbe Big Apple tires mean that you go faster, in a lot more comfort. The new Espresso is a shot of caffeine to your cycling lifestyle.


Upright and comfortable riding position

Dahon Axis stem adjusts for height and reach so you always have the perfect riding position



Folds in less than ten 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

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.
