BIKES - Tournado





Price: £1,750.00


The all day, all weather, all roads, travel bike. The Tournado is a hand-made, lugged steel touring bike that celebrates classical frame geometries and component designs. In true hand-made tradition, each frame is painstakingly welded and brazed from Tange Prestige tubes and each lug lovingly hand-painted. A custom Brooks Champion saddle in antique brown and lusciously rich Brooks leather bar tape highlight the component package. For true all day comfort, the Tournado fits tires of up to 700 x 40C and features a frame geometry designed for stability and a more comfortable upright, riding position. The result is a superbly balanced, supple ride that will deliver mile after mile of smiles. Best of all, the Tournado packs in fifteen minutes into it’s own AirPorter travel case so you’ll never have to leave home without your bike again. Pack your bags... the road is waiting.

Patented Ritchey BAB technology - allows the bike to pack away in fifteen minutes

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.
