I purchased 2 2008 "Dahon" Boardwalk S1s from Performance Bike and received it today, after unpacking everything and setting it up, I noticed that it doesn't say Dahon anywhere. Not on the box, not on the bike. Then I noticed that the instruction booklet for one bike was a generic fold/unfold flyer for another bike, and the other was a Dahon Licensed Technology manual. I guess they packed the wrong booklet for one of the bikes.
So am I correct to assume that my "Dahon" Boardwalk S1 is not actually made by Dahon? I noticed that they had DLT Boardwalks for sale at other sites, but I avoided them as I thought that the ones that says Dahon Boardwalk were actually made by Dahon and of better quality.
Is the quality of this "Dahon" Boardwalk as good as the real thing? All I want is a cheap and simple folding bike I can keep around and use once in a while for years to come, and the Boardwalk S1 seems to fit the bill.
What's the deal? I feel a little cheated.
