ZORAK 75 says:

Your a fuck up, can’t even fold the bike properly, and 26 pounds is too much weight for your skinny ass obviously.

HogSnot says:

I take it you haven’t been around many bikes with your terminology, but good video and detail. Need more riding footage.

Reverend Tacos Guidos Mananeros says:

Julia L says:

which bike is that?

Зверь машина !

ureviews says:

I know of two, though the price is preventing me from getting either one at this moment: the Dahon Vitesse D7HG and the Dahon Mu N-360 – Both use internal gears but with quite different technology.

chillendw says:

Thanks for the review. Helpful bcuz I just got mine and had a few questions which I got the answers to just by watching.

Thanks for presenting, I’ve had a Mariner for almost ten years with very reliable service, I live car-free and primarily use my Dahon for out of town trips when I must resort to renting a car (ie where no mass transit exists), so, I ride my Mariner down to the car rental and do the reverse when I return, and of course, in my host city I maintain my car-free lifestyle using the Mariner to get around. I removed the fenders, switched the tires out with knobby tires, replaced the pedals with aluminum claw pedals and mounted a basket on the rack. It’s all highly functional and doesn’t inhibit folding the bike at all. Really love the ride. One problem, I have to have the tires trued about every other year, spokes just break. No big deal. And of course I’ve replaced the brake pads a couple time- that’s just routine maintenance. Again, thanks for sharing.

Love to have one.

I know you said the bike rates moderately poor for long treks.  Would this be a reasonable choice for a 4-mile one-way commute, nevertheless? My terrain is mostly flat. Thx.

rainbowhiker says:

Beautiful bike. You can see from the welds that this bike is excellent in quality construction. Glad you told us about the weight and how it rides. I could tell that with that large front sprocket it would be too high geared for my town. I live on an aluvial fan and everything is up hill. For a leisure bike, you don’t want to work too hard to get around. Thanks.

Lion Nguyen says:

how many Dahon Mariner D7 can fit inside the back of your car ?

waqar zafar says:

How can I get this cycle in pakistan??

tankgirlfan1 says:

Thanks for all the great comments.

Rob York says:

I have 2 of these bikes. Great, super solid bikes that are fun to use. I have 2 other Dahon folding bikes for my boat. I have to say the Mariner is more difficult to fold correctly than the other two. It can be a bit frustrating. The one thing I don’t like about the way Dahon engineered the folding design is how the handle bars fold between the wheels. You have to have the length pretty much perfect or the handle bars prevent the magnets snapping together. I like the way the Brompton bikes fold. Its a better design but they are very expensive. Again, this is a solidly built product and fun to use.

ZORAK 75 says:

What a GOOF.

NYCeWheels says:

Thank you for the demonstration! Most go for speed in their demos, and it’s nice that you took your time to explain the importance of each aspect of this very well designed folder.  Keep in touch – Jack

Good review.

nextgap.com says:

can you ride these hands off ?

Jason Bates says:

Maybe i’m blind, but i cant seem to see the weight of this bike in the description?!  Or maybe I was hearing things when you stated that you would put it in the video description.  I did however follow the “amazon” link you provided and finally on the second page of the answered questions page, The weight seems to be 26lbs. Otherwise great video and review. thanks for sharing.!!

Friggin scared me with that end bit! No subscribe!

Ashraf Ali says:

Hi, i wanna ask about the folding issues, did you have any problems so far after folding and unfolding it for long time ?
am asking because i heard that the lock getting lose after a while of folding and unfolding it for long time, please advice.
thank you 

Julia L says:

Oh, yeah you’d think they can maybe make these more affordable so that people can stay healthy… :[

ureviews says:

No I decided to go with a bike that has an internal gear hub.

Susan Barker says:

Cool video. Did you keep it?

ureviews says:

Well in all honesty there are plenty of affordable bikes out there. It all depends on how features, status, etc…

Danny Nantawong says:

Those foldable bikes are for hopping around subways, trains and etc. Please don’t compare with the conventional bikes, they are totally big different.  

Ming Lai says:

Is that any distinct difference with 060?

Edwin Canlapan says:

Thanks for the review man.  I’m considering of buying one.

Zerobladetion Wot says:

I got my folding bike at Walmart for 158 dollars. Even though it’s a department store bike am happy with it. Just need to go to A to B.
