Dahon Complaint - Shoddy Construction
My uncle gave me a folding Dahon "Boardwalk" bike when I moved onto a sailboat. He had bought the bike on craigslist. It was like new. There was not a scratch on it. It looked unused. Four months later I was riding to the store when the bike collapsed beneath me, badly cutting the back of my ankle. It broke at the hinge it folds on. Fortunately I was not among car traffic when this happened, but I was two miles from the marina, limping with a bloody ankle. I emailed Dahon. they never responded.
The bike is dangerously weak at the folding hinge. I only weigh 115 pounds.
