Minor assembly is required before the bike can be used.About DahonThe Dahon story begins in 1975. At the time, Dr. David Hon, was a physicist at Hughes Aircraft Corporation in California, working on highly classified government research projects. One afternoon, Dr. Hon was struck by the magnitude of the world's dependence on oil, a non-renewable resource that would likely be depleted within the lifetime of his grandchildren. Dr. Hon's solution: a portable folding bicycle. Working evenings and weekends in his garage over the next seven years, Dr. Hon built dozens and dozens of prototypes, trying to perfect a folding bicycle that would maintain the riding performance of a regular bicycle but would fold quickly and to a compact size.
