. . . which is better. I was looking at the Dahon Mariner yesterday and I loved the smooth shifting. I just found out that there is a dedicated folding bike store just down the road from Landis Cyclery I visited. If only I knew. They sell some of the Tern models and I was wondering, before I head out there tomorrow, if this brand is OK. They seem to look very much like the Dahons. I noticed on this stores website ( http://portapedalbike.com/ ) that they sell the Tern Link C7 for $480. Not bad, but it doesn't come with a rear rack or fenders. Those can always be added later. But I do like the fact that it has a front attachment bracket that will allow for a front mounted bag -- nice! Since I was looking at the Dahon Mariner, would the Link C7 be of similar quality? If I add the rack and fenders as accessories to the Link C7 it would bring the two bikes around the same price. So which would be the better deal do you think? I have no idea. One thing I noticed with the C7 is that it uses the Shimano Tourney derailleur. Any good? I don't know what is on the Mariner, but it does operate very smoothly.
