Amazon has Dahon Uno $299 shipped.

Check it out. Probably just a day or 2.
Good deal.
I imagine they will add sales tax.

Keep in mind that, in the USA, the bike must be "tuned and adjusted by a professional mechanic before the owner’s first ride" to qualify for Dahon's Lifetime Warranty Upgrade. See:

http://dahon.com/mainnav/dahon-suppo...-warranty.html

If you want the lifetime warranty upgrade, take the bike to a professional mechanic BEFORE you ride it.

How does Dahon define 'lifetime'? There are several interpretations when it comes to 'lifetime warranty'

the nyce offer includes the tuning and repacking. But at $350. Which at the current pounds to dollars exchange rate is still sweet.

I don't know for sure. As you know, some bicycle "lifetime" warranties are limited to the "useful life" of the product. Also, I have noticed that the link in my previous post was to the warranty area of the Dahon Global website. Here is a link to the warranty area of the USA website:

http://www.usa.dahon.com/mainnav/support/warranty.html

And, FWIW, these types of issues can be very confusing if/when the documentation included with the product differs from the information currently available from the manufacturer.

I can state that in our 3+ years as a Dahon dealer, all of our warranty claims have been resolved promptly and satisfactorily.

Nyce Is violating Dahons MAP pricing, same as Amazon. Good for the consumer I guess, bad for all the other dealers who play by the rules. Stunts like that make me thing that somebody is desperate. Never a good sign for consumers who want to have a good partner for years to come.

Warranty, if in any way real and not BS, I havent seen any problems whatsoever with Dahon or Tern, no matter what. Than again I adhere to their dealer policies and that might just be the reason I never have any problems

Best Thor

I wish this will be outlawed in the US. It's a form of price fixing. Apple does it all the time.

Is it not outlawed ? I guess it varies from country to country. I know in the UK, in retail bookselling there used to be something called the 'net-book agreement' in which publishers fixed a minimum price for which books could be sold, and this was made illegal. The downside was a lot of book retailers, large (Borders) and small closed down, but we all started buying cheaper books from the supermarket and amazon. Meanwhile it is different in France, and Amazon is subject to more restrictions in order to keep local bookshops profitable. I guess the books are more expensive too in France too (but the wine is a lot cheaper - which would you choose ?).


Of course, bikes are different, and as this thread has shown, if the day comes when there is no one to set up or fix our bikes that we have bought online then we are all in trouble.

Its called MAP Minimum ADVERTISED price ..... and not illegal at all. Its there to protect the brick and mortar stores and legitimate Internet sellers from "cartonpushers" and fly by nighters. Everybody can sell the bike for any price they wish to sell it for, just that you cannot ADVERTISE it.
