Plus you get a rack on the Tern.
Go ride both and let us know your thoughts on both anyway so others may learn.
Tried the Mu P7... it was then an easy decision to go for the Link D7i! The Tern is a much easier fold, all the clamps have a much more robust and satisfying feeling, and it looks really good in all black. It felt like a better ride, I'm not sure if this partly had to do with how the bike was set up, but the Tern certainly did feel more like a real bike. Didn't help the Dahon's case either that the guy in the shop couldn't get it folded
. The slightly higher gear inches at the top end on the Dahon would have been nice though, and the seat post pump is a handy addition.
So, for £519.99 (actually £498.99 through a cashback website) I should be getting the Tern with mudguards, trolley rack (w/cover), front dynamo light and rear 'deluxe' light and a carry bag. Conversely the Mu P7 would have been £479.99, which might come with rack and mudguards (the one I saw did, but it seems mileage may vary). Easy decision
