Ahoy! Welcome ashore, all of you seafaring bikers. On a boat, space is limited. That's why Dahon developed the Dahon Mariner D7 folding bike. With a rust-resistant coating, the Mariner can handle even the worst of sea breezes. Don't let rust keep you from biking!
Dahon Mariner D7 Features:
The Dahon Mariner has 7 speeds to handle even the biggest grade hills. Basically everything on this bike is built to handle rough oceanic conditions.
Storage on small boats is tight, that's why the Dahon Mariner folds down to such a compact size. In about 15 seconds, you can fold this bike down to the size of a small suitcase. When you pull into port, you can use the rear rack that is included to store luggage while you're docked. It's the perfect commuter for a day trip!
Please note: While the Mariner is rust-resistant, it is not rust-PROOF. Proper maintenance is still required to minimize corrosion.
What makes this different from the Speed D7? The Mariner has an aluminum frame (rather than steel) which makes it 1.6lbs lighter. It also has some rust proofing and uses a different hinge setup. Both bikes are great but the Mariner is a bit of a step up.
