by: Naoki Sakai

We’re having a Dahon Test Ride Festival, this coming weekend, Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14 at Y’s Road Chigasaki.  The weather forecast says a very sunny Saturday, and would be an enjoyable ride/day at Southern Beach, where we are located.


The bicycles for demo are the Vitesse D8, with Shimano Claris drivetrain, 20″ tires and weighs 9.9 kg. 93000yen+TAX.


The Speed D8 Street. It weighs in at 12.4 kg with Shimano Acera drive train and Schwabb Big apple 20″ tires. 81000yen+TAX.


The Boardwalk i5, weighing in at 12.7 kg, with Kenda Rotolo 20″ tires. 69000yen+TAX


The Vybe D7, 11.9 kg, Kenda 20″ tires and Shimano components. 49000yen+TAX.


All you need is a picture ID…driver’s license, etc….and you can ride, for free!, a Dahon of your choice, and see how the folding bicycle is a great option for bicycling in Japan, as you can carry it on the trains to your destination, and ride about in places you’ve not seen quite as you would riding a Dahon! A unique and inspiring adventure!! 🙂
