SOLD – Folding Bike for Sale – Toronto or St. Catharines

soldDahon folding bike from Mountain Equipment Co-op for sale.

This is the previous model of the MEC Origami bicycle.

This is a compact, high quality folding bicycle bought at the end of the 2012 season. I rode it for one season in 2013 when I was working in Toronto. I would ride it to the bus terminal, put it on the bus, and then use it again when I got to Toronto.

Now that I don’t work in Toronto any more I don’t need it as I also have another regular bike. It was in storage for the entire 2014 season. It’s hardly been used and is in excellent condition.

This bike was original $650+ and has hardly been used. Folding bikes can get expensive so this is a steal at $350.

The specs according to MEC are:

  • Centre hinge allows lightweight aluminum frame to fold back on itself.
  • 20 x 1.5in. tires provide plenty of cushioning.
  • ProMax V-brakes are powerful and easy to maintain.
  • Nexus 8-speed internal hub allows rider to change gears whether pedalling or not. Gear range suits most city riding.
  • Folded size is approximately 34 x 67 x 64cm (13.3 x 26.1 x 25in.).
  • Adjusts to fit riders from 125 to 188cm (4ft. 10in. to 6ft. 2in.).
  • Designed to support a maximum weight of 105kg (230lb.).
  • Seatpost telescopes into the frame.
  • Handlebars telescope and fold flat.
  • SunTour pedals fold against crank when not in use.
  • Comes with a canvas carrying case, fenders, and a rear rack.
  • Manufactured by Dahon to MEC specifications.
