In our Journey, space is limited. We could hang bikes off the ladder, but they'd be exposed to the elements and sticky fingers. So we bought Dahon six speed folding bikes.
They fold up very easily and are well built. In the eight years we've owned them, I've replaced one tire tube. And we've ridden them hard, from campgrounds to back roads near Virginia's Skyline Drive to downtown Key West.
There are three latches, one on the frame hinge,
one on the handlebars,
and one on the seat down tube.
One pedal also folds up to make the folded bike a little narrower.
We fold up the bikes and they fit side-by-side in one of our basement compartments, safe from sticky fingers and out of the elements.
They go from folded to open and ready to ride in a minute, and visa-versa. They are nice cruising bikes, but they are not made for racing or off road. We've been quite pleased with them and they've held up great. They're even "Paul Proof". ;c)
