Dahon JiFo 16 Folding Bike

The new Dahon JiFo 16 is a bike designed for the last mile or two of a multi-modal commute. The bike is ultra compact due to the 16″ wheels, and is equipped with quick release pedals and a telescoping seatpost to fold down into the smallest package possible. At just under 20 lbs the one-speed JiFo 16 is pretty light, but the real story is how quickly it folds—under 7 seconds total from rideable to folded up for office or subway stowage. The longitudinal folding frame has a unique twist latch that makes folding and unfolding fast, secure and stiff. This top of the line Dahon folding tech will be available for $900 in the pictured metallic green.

    Thanks for the update. It’s good to see new iron from Dahon. The JiFo may be one of the company’s more unique products.
