You'll be blown away by the speed of the Eclipse X20. Tern pulled all the stops to offer you the most high performance, responsive, and exhilarating ride they could. There are really too many awesome parts on this bike to list, that's what the specifications are for, but take it from the experts - the Eclipse X20 is built to leave other bicycles in the dust!
The 24 inch wheels on the Eclipse X20 are larger than the 20 inch wheels on other performance folding bikes. This gives them a speed edge - especially when you look at the low spoke count wheels that are super light and aerodynamic.
When you buy an Eclipse X20 you'll get the ultimate portable speed bike. It will make biking for exercise a blast - not to mention portable and convenient.

The Verge X20 climbs and descends beautifully. Except for really fast paced or high mile road rides, I can't see missing my road bike. This is more than I ever expected from any commuter bike or, much less, a folding bike. This review covers everything from specs to ride quality. It really is the best Verge X20 review out there.
Last week I borrowed my roommate's Tern Link P9 folding bike and joined him and his father for a 14 mile joy ride around the suburbs of Boston. My roommate, Anthony, and his father are both bike enthusiasts and at first I was a bit worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up with the father son duo. I had never ridden a folding bike before and was thinking that it might be hard to keep up with a normal road bike, but... read Jack's Tern Link P9 Review for more.
The Tern Link D8 is probably our most popular Tern folding bike. It has fenders and a rear rack so it's pretty well setup for every day riding. With puddles on the ground you can be assured your clothes will remain dry. The Link D8 is the least expensive Tern which still uses the high quality Tern Bike hinges.
With so many to choose from it can be difficult to figure out which Tern Link folding bike is for you. This line of Tern bikes is meant to be used for commuting, leisure rides, and generally casual riding. Reading this Link bike comparison by Seth Workheiser will help you decide which Tern Link is for you.
We asked Sam Joslin to write an industry insider review of the Tern Bicycle line, comparing it to Dahon Bicycles. What we got back was better than we could have hoped, a real objective look at the two companies and what makes a Tern bike different from a Dahon. If you're curious about the differences give this review a read to learn more.
This first impressions review of the Tern Link P9 doesn't go into technical details, it's from the perspective of someone who's just encountered the folding bike. You'll find no technical references to OCL Joints or whatever (though another review might be good for that too!) - just an honest report of what the reviewer thought of when he wrote this Tern review.
