NEW Saddles have arrived
I found a new line of saddles, which are affordable and very comfy. Never had Ladies specific saddles before, either.
We have a handfull Terns for special pricing. These are built up bikes, never ridden ( except by me to try everything out) full warranty of course.
Labour Day weekend Tern Demo Special.... this is indeed a one time deal for some special Tern bikes.check out the garage sale area...
Tern is happy to announce that its newly launched Eclipse X20 and Swoop Duo are winners of the prestigious Eurobike Award in the Urban Bike category. Only 84 products out of 439 worldwide entries received the coveted bicycle industry award, which was presented on August 29th at the Eurobike trade fair in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The bikes are two out of four newly launched products by Tern. The other new bikes are the Swoop D7i and the Castro D8.
The Eclipse X20 is one of the fastest folding bicycles ever developed. The Eclipse X20 is fast enough to chase down road bikes on your morning commute, but can fold in a flash when you choose to hop on the train for the journey home. The road-worthy specs include a 20-speed SRAM Force drivetrain, and top-flight parts from Syntace, Schwalbe, Ergon, American Classic, Sapim, and FSA.
•Weight: 10.7 kg (23.6 lb)
•Fold Time: 10 seconds
New to the Tern lineup is the Swoop, an all new low-step frame platform that makes it incredibly easy to get around crowded urban areas where riding can be marked by frequent stops and starts. The security of the low-step frame design can be appreciated by young and old: the young, when in tight jeans or short skirts, and the old, if they have an old injury or haven’t ridden in some years.
The Swoop comes in two configurations: the Swoop Duo and Swoop D7i. The Swoop Duo is a cleanly-designed bike with minimal cabling and automatic 2-speed shifting. The Swoop D7i features a Shimano Nexus 7 integrated hub for a wider gear range and low maintenance. Both models feature integrated racks, mudguards, and lighting.
•Weight: 13.4 kg (29.5 lb)
•Fold Time: 10 seconds
•Weight: 13.7 kg (30.1 lb)
•Fold Time: 10 seconds
The Castro D8 rides like a full-size bike but folds as small as most small-wheeled folders. The Castro is designed to be an everyday transport workhorse –- whether it’s getting you to work, getting you to the market, or delivering you to that tasty lunch spot. Featuring an 8-speed, low-profile Neos derailleur system, the bike features quick shifting and a good gear range for all types of urban terrain.
•Weight: 13 kg (28.7 lb)
•Fold Time: 10 seconds

Things are rockin and rollin......
End of the month new Terns are flying in. ( Well, actually they will be trucked ) Get your orders for X10 X20 and X30 plus Verge S11.
Already placed ( and paid orders will be shipped first obviously )
We are getting only a handfull of bikes, therefore get off that fence and order one NOW.
I am sure when they arrive on US shores they will be all sold out again.
Hate to push this way, but those bikes are in high demand and supply is very limited
I was a little lazy updating the news section, partly being super busy partly personal reasons, but I promise I will get better.
Super exited. Going 3 days to Orlando Florida for Dahon Dealer Conference to see the 2013 bikes, Stay tuned for SpyPhotos coming up.
Dahon Japan, very nicely done. Keep in mind that some of the shown models are NOT available in the USA ! But worthwhile checking out nether the less
NEW exiting Dahon bikes are rolling in : the long awaited Mu Uno, Vitesse with 3 gears, Tangerine and Blue Speed D7, Mu P 24 ( matte white), Mu 360 Nuvinci,and the first Dahon bike with real disc brakes: the Formula
We just received a plethora of new BioLogic parts in.... Check out the Reecharge series for you I Phone owners.
Get the case alone with backup battery !.... go a little more and get the bracket for bike,boat,motorcycle,??.... and than go all green and super tech and splurge for the gen Kit.
All three items must be considered the ultimus maximus upgrade for your trusted and beloved I phones... go check it out.
I think we again have carriers.... at least the Portage ones.... new shipment here in a week. Orders yours now !
Derringer.... Why do I like these ? somehow I do have gas in my veins after all, I suppose.
Tern Verge DUO We are shipping the first Verge bikes. They shift at 8.5 miles
automatically into second gear, and back if you go slower than 8.5 miles per hour. I am a stick shift kind of guy, but this works so smooth and keeps the lines of the bike so clean,
I love this bike.....(Now I really need to sell one or two of my older bikes)
Nice Vid from Nyce. I like the heli shots.
Just pay attention that you slide the safety up BEFORE you open the latch.
The talented testrider got a little over-enthusiastic about how fast you can fold a Tern.
3 Minutes into the Vid he should have taken the extra time to
slide open the safety pin, otherwise you will be able to break it.
Not the end of the world as all bikes come with extra pins, and we have some spares ready, just in case.
Hiplok New in our warehouse, works real well. A different kind of lock, ready for christmas .....
Yamaha Moegi, 125 cc, belt drive.... Hmmm.... somewhat sissy for a motorcycle. But I dont mind. Kinda cool like an old NSU Quickly
799.00 Vitesse D7 hg Save 150 buckaroos on a brandnew
internal geared 7 speed Vitesse. I hate to say it ( I am not pushy usually )
but hurry..... quantities are somewhat limited and the special is going to end in december !!
Watch out for some very special custom bikes, these are one offs, with paint scratches or other blemishes ( nothing serious ) but are bikes you wont find anywhere else. Stay tuned for pics and prices. Perfect for the christmas present to yourself !
Black Friday Special a Kukumuxu for only 599.00. WOW fun handpainted special edition bike
Terns D8 and D7 I are shipping !
New Terns are flying over here any week now, Same as for the new Dahons. Yes we will take orders. We will guarantee that you will receive your paid bike as one of the very first in the US. At any given time you can ask for a refund during the wait.
Leukemia Society Fundraiser a great success !
At last weekend "Bob Levin Leukemia Cup Sailing Regatta" the Dahon folding bike donated by ThorUSA generated well over 500.00 dlr for the good cause.
Bravo Midwest Sailors for the good outcome of the auction. ( a grand total of 50 grand this year ! )

while you wait for the new prices ( Dahon and Tern ).... here a Youtube vid, which I liked.
We are at the Bicycle show and trying to learn about all the new cool stuff and maybe even try to pick up a few new items
for the website. Our office is staffed for regular orders and we will ship every day as usual.
International orders, the more difficult tech questions, complaints ( lol ) have to wait until Sept 19 when we are back.
How about the Jifo super compact fold for under $ 900 and the Curl for under $ 1500
The Mu Uno will indeed be available again, however, the price is pretty much up there, $ 899
All Dahon bikes will go up comes mid September. NOW its the time to get them for old pricing.
The new prices will be estimated 20 to 25 % higher.... do NOT wait !
Dahon 2012 ??? will we see some if not almost all
of these bikes for the USA market come Tradeshow time in September ?
Tern folding bikes available in fall 2011. These are very nice indeed, clever details,
fresh design, a 100 % committed team behind Josh Hon make this a premiere folding bike brand.
A super thanks letting me be part of your world launch in Taipeh.
Going to be in Taipeh middle of next week for a couple days, with geting there and coming back, hopefully in one piece, I am out of the office for a week.
That will slow down some tech questions, or better lets say the hopefully correct answers of said. Shipping will go on as usual, dont hesitate to place big orders,
as the girls will appreciate letting me know that they sold more in my absence than me being here.
I promise that I will have exiting news upon my return.
Curve SL 2009
Alright only 4 of them left, if they are gone they will be gone forever. Now would be the time to jump off that fence
and get one of these great 8 speed Nexus redband equipped IGH bikes.
Euro FLair Brizio The Brizio is a great 24 inch wheeled bike. Very Euro Design, very chic. The picture doesnt do this bike any good. I promise to make some better ones shortly.
Now the totally awesome deal. Get a Dahon Luggage truss and an original Klickfix handwoven willow basket for FREE with every bike. Thats a cool 80 dlr off regular price.
quite a few of the high end bikes ( vectors for example) are sold out in the USA. This is not necessary a bad thing,
the supply to the US was limited from the start.
Our Euro friends got more this time around, and some of these bikes might be available elsewhere than the USA.
I think that Dahon is sitting down and will surprise us with re-designs of the more expensive models and we all
will like the better availibility for the mid range bikes, when the program is a little more streamlined for a limited time.
we are back from the Trimaran Nationals in Florida. Sunburned and a little worn out to say the least.
Wain did a great job to keep things rollin. We will process a lot of international orders today and tomorrow.
Thanks for your patience.
Oh... by the way.... we placed 3rd in class. :-)
we are gettting jerked around with the delivery time for the long awaited Kore I Beam adapter. The Kore folks are not the
friendliest people but now all of the sudden all their regular distributors seem to have problems delivering this much
needed item as well..... we keep pushing hard to get them for you !
the wife and I qualified for the Trimaran Nationals in Florida. We will load up the ole boat and head down there
leaving the last weekend in April and be back a good week later. We have about zero chance to win the National Championship,
but we will give them rockstars a run for the money. Wish us luck ! The office and warehouse is staffed so dont hesitate to get
your folding needs from us, even if the "boss" ( which would be the wife ) is not in the office.
again ???? good time to get a bike, save a couple hard earned dollars, and get healthy all at the same time, whats not to like ?
I am SOOOO READY FOR SPRING !
just sold the very last Speed Tr in the country and the very last Curve SL with Capreo, Curve SL with IGH Nexus 8 speeds are still available.
TOP TEN LIST ..... this is something truly important for a change !
we have 2 !! Only 2 Briza with internal 3 speed hubs in sand color left. Thats it ! For this very Euro looking comfortable 24 inch wheel sized bike.
Call us for a good deal ! 800 222 8356 ... The new 2011 Briza with 7 speed derrailleur gearing are also available.
New Klickfix stuff has arrived, check out the light bag, multiclip etc, finally get your freepack and shopper etc etc, and check out the vario rack which will be arriving in late spring.
2011 Speed D 7 Another somewhat limited offering.
Orange is fast as we all know. This is a Tangerine colored ( for us men.... this is orange ) special edition Speed D 7
I Phone Case 4 WOW.... we actually have a few .... new and improved latch . fits Iphone 3 and 4 ! get em while they are hot
2011 Speed P 8 WOW.... we just got a few Speed P 8 in BLACK into our warehouse. Those are somewhat limited and may not be available
all year long. If you are sitting on the fence wanting a Speed P 8 but didnt like the red color, now would be the time
to get a stylish black one.
holiday contest has been solved. The two bikes were manufactured in the Dahon Europe factory in Czechia
The photo was taken on the island of Culebra. The two German tourists were far away from the usual tourist spots on
this truly remote island inbetween the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
Also called the Spanish Virgin Islands.
The winner from Bike Forums please email me your full address, in order to send you something from my desc :-)
First of course all the best wishes for a great 2011.
lets hope, work and pray for a little more peace around the earth.
holiday contest.... where are these Dahons ?
First correct answer will win something from my desc
email me the location of the two bikes to
we added a couple of battery front lights. The Sigma for under 80 dlr and the Busch and Mueller Ion for a little more than a 100 dlr are both real lights,
far away in performance to any Walmart battery light, unfortunately also more expensive, but both are well worth it.
BioLogic is now online
We do have all the new Bilogic stuff on order ( since September 2010 ) and now slowly there is a rumbling,
that the first items arrive on US shores very shortly.
too late to order for christmas, but maybe a nice present for yourself after the holidays ?
Please note that the prices are a good guess, but might change after I actually receive pertinent paperwork.
next year NO Curve SL, we do have very limited numbers of the Capreo ( 010) version as well as the (Nexus) Internal geared bikes left.
These are light, and very nice bikes, which will be missed when the last one is sold ! Get yours NOW !
We have ONE Chiao P 8 in stock, Thats it for the luxuryous version. Next year it will be replaced with a much simpler 5 speed version !( no lights either)
Major major price deals .... keep in mind that all of these models are 09 and current models which when sold are gone.
Especially important to note is that there will be no more CURVE SL in 2011 ....
both the 09 model with the great 8 speed Internal hub but also the new current model with Capreo are now on final closeout. Grab one before they are gone forever !
Interbike Vegas is coming up. Our booth is on the truck and rollin as I write this... we will be on the show for the next week.
( Sept 19 to 26 ) USA Orders will be shipped. International orders will have to wait a week. Sorry for the inconvienience.
MKS Pedals are back in stock and so is the venerable Aber Hallo Stem ....
Eurobike Pictures super show in Friedrichshafen Germany lotsa cool folders and all the other new stuff
Off to visit a couple suppliers and than check out the new items at EUROBIKE in Germany. Will see the new Dahons for next year and other cool stuff I hope.
Wain is here and will be able to answer most questions, Shipping will not be interupted, maybe some of my emails will have to wait for an answer a little longer, though.
check out the Garage Sale area.... I have one Eco and one Speed/Mariner on super closeout !!!
Super super August ( i hope it gets cooler soon ) deals. Too hot to even write down, You have to call me 800 222 8356

I just saved a lot on my Car Insurance, I switched to Dahon
Lindsay Lohan is in prison. Makes me feel much safer already...
...not that I dont agree that somebody like her should pay out of the wazzoo and learn to behave.
But that I as a taxpayer have to pay for her prison stay is ridiculous at best
wouldnt that be nice over here..... great bike infrastructure
Will be on Eurobike Fridrichshafen for all 4 days. Somebody wants to meet there ? What should I look out for and maybe make a pic or two ?
Birdy Owner attention..... I am working on a super super mod for your bikes.... stay tuned !
Facebook I finally signed up on facebook. Dont know if I am exited or not about it. lets see how it works
Not only is Jet Blue showing the Tour de France on its seat back TVs, it's also not charging passengers who bring their
bikes with them for this entire month (they usually charge $50), in honor of the biggest cycling race in the world. Most
airlines charge $200 - $300 to check in a bike. Talk about blowing away the competition!. Of course we Folding bike enthusiast
have our bikes with us nicely hidden away in regular looking suitcases, declaring them at bicycle parts and dont pay nothing usually.
but its a good move from Jetblue and therefore noteworthy ......
kinda funny reminds me of the overzealous riders who always wanna show off and go faster, while we just wanna have fun and ride our own pace
ECOVELO.com surprises with the raddest bike pics on the net. Thanks for our homepage shot. I really like it.
And this was not even shot by the man himself ( Alan) but by his son !
Ios P 7 has indeed the three holes in the steerer tube to mount a Dahon Truss or Klickfix mount. The pictures on the web do not show this feature!
The new improved Espresso comes in the box with the stem turned around ( otherwise the stem would poke out of the box) you need to unscrew the top cap, turn the stem forward and close the cap again.
dont try to have the fork turn around.
International shipping !
Please read (and understand) the shipping procedures. NO we dont ship for free to Australia ( or any other place on this earth except the 48 states of the US of A).
If the individual calculated freight rates are too high we gladly refund the order ( immedeately) We dont make anything on the freight we charge.
A small amount of Reecharge is in the country. I am able to ship all my paid waiting customers out. Thanks for your patience. Keep your orders coming that way
we will make sure that you will be receiving them when the next batch is coming in. And just maybe I have a few left over ones with the first run a round.
First Midtown bike in stock. The silvertip looks real good.Smoothounds in L and Medium are here. All others available as well. Mini airporters And the regular BIG ones arer in stock
IOS P 8 in stock, Mu EX back in stock Ios XL and Reecharge further delayed , sorry
had a great long weekend. Got almost to our goal of fundraising and kicked some butt on the regatta course.... ( Clubmember took first, and we took second overall from almost 30 boats entered )
now we are talking mechanical doping ? Comes to find out that this was probably made up by Gruber assist the manufacturer. That would indeed be almost as bad as cheating. Bad style points for sure.
Have a great super nice long weekend. We are " giving back" a little and work our tails off at the yearly Leukemia Society Regatta at Lake Carlyle.
ThorUSA has donated a Dahon Mariner to be auctioned away for the good cause, and there is lot of other good stuff to do at
this rather big event.
We hope to raise 50000 dlr. Wish us luck to reach that lofty goal.
There are a couple sailboat regattas thrown in for good measure as well.
Lets see if we can beat the slowest boat and dont come in last.
Shipping ! its NOT free to the rest of the world just because it says "O" when you check out. I cannot have a flat rate
aound the world therefore we weight and measure and THAN send a paypal invoice for all International shipments.
Its also not possible to send a small iten for 2 bucks to Canada. If somebody told you different than send him
my way and if the local post office accepts this, I will invite you to dinner.
Congrats Jessica Watson you are one tuff girl !
Landis came out and finally fessed up about his doping. And he came swinging trying to take as many other folks down with
him as possible.
" Landis... I never liked you, but this is a new low even for a cheater like you !"
No wonder I am not so much "into" bike racing anymore, but rather push for the fun of riding the bike slow and with open
eyes with enough time to enjoy nature and the friendships along the trail.
Its bike to work week ! Be carefull out there !
We are BACK from North Carolina ! Wedding was great ! Meeting all the family was super ! also International Orders are again shipping all over the place. Thanks Thor
Daughter is getting married and its a big deal with half the family flying in from Germany and we all meet at her place in North Carolina. This means that we are just a little handicapted.
All regular orders from the US will be shipping the same day as usual. However, International orders will be on hold until we are back and figure out the freight charges, we will than email you a paypal invoice and get this stuff out. In other words, if you are in a hurry and not living in the USA you better look elsewhere for the first week in May.
Same is true for any custom jobs. Sorry for any inconveniences.
The new 2010 Espresso Baltic has received a complete overhaul. Big Apple Tires, New Axis Stem, 31.6 Seatpost,
makes this bike a real looker, but also a solid performer. Its a Thor favourite. Now in stock and shipping !
Some of the 08/09 bikes getting very low.... For example: I only have ONE more Vitesse DHG 7 for the closeout price. Dont sit on that fence.... get that bike and ride instead of being totally bummed if all the good deals are gone
On the Dahon Webpage up in the left hand corner is a tab to select the country. Make sure you look under USA and not GLobal bikes when you search for a new bike.
In some case the bikes are the same, however, quite a few are indeed very different ! And in case you have a question always feel free to ask.
Do you know that the sailing record nonstop around the world is just 48 days 7 hours and a couple minutes held by the French
Groupama team on their sailing trimaran.
This is the fastest boat around and it doesnt even have a motor.
Introducing the man himself: Dr. David Hon ( DAHON )
Sheldon Brown Website
I am working in the bike biz all my life, but I know absolutely NOTHING ( nada zilch zero ) compared to the late Sheldon Brown
we waited a very long time for these. They will be perfect for any travel, yes you need to take a few more things off your bike but than the stuff is well protected indeed.
no aprils fool joke, most of them are lame to start out with, and usually folks put a disclaimer at the very end ( how very uncool that is !!! )
Thanks to James "Owenfinn" for the great "April" pic on the homepage. That photo was taken at a really nice
new waterfront park here in Yokohama called Zo No Hana Park (Elephant's Nose Park).
The new 2010 Espresso Baltic has received a complete overhaul. Big Apple Tires, New Axis Stem, solid 31.6 Seatpost,
makes this bike a real looker, but also a solid performer. Its a Thor favourite. We accept orders (and payments) now
for a roughly 3 to 4 week delivery time. Order one today and I guarantee you that you will receive yours the very second we receive them.
Zimbale Bags and Saddles
Brand Spanking new to us... this is great stuff, I like the leather saddles, finally a
comfortable real thick leather saddle which has enough adjustability and doesnt hurt the first 500 miles.
