Ordered a folding bike to use when travelling in my caravan. I chose the Dahon Vitesse D8 as it gave me the best value and features for my money. I ordered online after finding the best deal (by far) from Merlin and it arrived here in Australia in about 10 days. It was very well packed and arrived in perfect condition. It took about 20 minutes to unpack and assemble ready to ride. It is very well made, beautifully finished, rock solid when unfolded and with its 8 well spaced gears is suitable for just about all conditions; the solid rack is very handy (although my Ortlieb panniers will not fit it). It has been so good I have now ordered another for my wife.
Excellent upgrade on previous model: higher top gear means more speed downhill, while retaining hill climbing ability and light weight. And great value!
Really impressed with this bike. It is very simple to dismantle and reassemble. The bike took a bit of "tweaking" before it was ready to ride . It rides really well, managing hills as easily as my 21 gear Claude Butler.
Excellent bikes and a pleasure to ride. I bought 2 of these for my wife and I as they are easily transported in the boot of our car. Simple to fold and unfold and very comfortable. The purchase process was a doddle. We ordered them online on the Sunday, and they arrived on the following Tuesday. I contacted Merlin Cycles on the Monday for some additional information which they dealt with quickly. The bikes simply needed unfolding and they tyres pumped up and we were away.
I would recommend both the bikes and the company.
