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.

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.

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.

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.
