“A Classic Bike”

Written on: 06/04/2014 by np.dahon (1 review written)

The best 26" folder (and sadly not available any more). The P18 is the best version. Having a full-size bike that I can put in the boot of my car is a revelation. Pay attention to the lockjaw mechanisms and don't overtighten or undertighten. I have converted mine to drop handlebars, STI levers (which work with the mechanical disc brake calipers) and Shimano clipless pedals. If you have one - look after it. It will be a classic… Read Full Review

“worst folding bike ”

Written on: 30/08/2012

bought this dahon cadenza 2008 in march 2011, right from the first month I had trouble with the lock jaw on the frame. bolts that held the lock jaw together fell out, this happened on many occasions .This led to buying the spare part kit at £35 a time. This was topped off at the beginning of august 2012 with the frame completely snapping at the point of the weld. Although the frame has a 5 year warranty, I'm left trying to sort the problem with someone in China. If I get that problem sorted… Read Full Review

“Dahon Cadenza is Great -- But the 2006 Model Only!”

Written on: 20/09/2011 by eta1 (2 reviews written)

Dahon Cadenza 2006 is a great, stable, fast-folding bicycle. Unlike Bromptons etc this is a real bicycle that folds in 3 seconds. That could make all the difference between sitting and standing in the train. It is stable, fast-riding bicycle. Very unfortunately, Dahon changed the folding mechanism from 2007 onwards. The 2006 model does not require tools to fold and folds in 3 seconds. From 2007 onwards you need a tool to unlock and fasten screws, and the folding takes 30 seconds. This means… Read Full Review

“The Dahon Cadenza which I bought in November 2008 is a...”

Written on: 05/09/2009

The Dahon Cadenza which I bought in November 2008 is a good design but is let down by some poor components, especially the wheels. The Kenetix hubs are especially poor quality and are not sealed, which is a bad idea in Scotland where it is constantly wet! I was advised that the rear wheel straight radial pattern of spokes on the rear wheel would not last, so I had the rear wheel rebuilt when I bought it. The rear wheel has been replaced 3 times since November because of freewheel failure and… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/01/2009

I like this Dahon Cadenza bike very much and find the convenience of being able to put it in the back of a car really useful. It is a bit large when folded to go on a bus. Folds easily; rides nicely and looks good. Came supplied with loose spokes and needed cycle shop adjustment. Also to meet the terms of the guarantee it must have a checkout before riding. You will scratch the frame when folding, it is unavoidable that sometimes the pedal will collide with the frame. Bits were loose when it… Read Full Review

It's a shame that it's not built to a higher standard. I love having a 26" wheel folding bike, and is great to ride, but next time I'll look at getting an Animal… Read Full Review

Agree with this reviewer

<br/>My bottom bracket is broken and I have a non oem wheel on the back now. The paint scratches and the jaw locking mechanism can loosen. When it is working well I can commute 20 miles a day on it and love it.
<br/>
<br/>Quality needs improving.
