Why listen to salespeople when you can read the direct
experience of an everyday rider? That’s how we feel anyway. And for that
reason, we’d like to feature a blog on the Dahon bullhead folding bike by a
customer of ours who recently decided to start a blog series on it.
Read his blog, Dahon Bullhead: Quick to Fold and Built for
Stout which comes from the perspective of a middle-aged rider who has a passion
for folding bikes. He goes over the pros of the design and what he finds
striking about it.
One of our most
excellent BionX electric bike conversions yet!
This weekend we finished a BionX bike conversion that happened to be one of the nicest yet! It was a Dahon Briza BionX bike and man was it cool. The Briza is a seven-speed folding bike with 24-inch wheels and a low step-through frame. It’s a folding electric bike that would fit nearly anyone and is perfect for city commuters and country riders alike.

blog on the Dahon Briza folding bike with BionX. There are a few cute pictures
and some close-ups of the juicy details.

Bottom bracket drives
and electric bikes
Bottom bracket drive electric bikes Work in a different way
than the conventional electric bicycle. Rather than housing a motor in the
front or rear wheel, the bike is powered right from the pedals. It is
advantageous in several ways.
The Kettler Twin is an excellent example of a bottom bracket drive bike. It runs the motor power right through the gears to take the strain off when climbing hills. It also works perfectly with your pedaling power to make for a super efficient ride. Yep, bottom bracket drive bikes are certainly some of the best out there!
