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.
