It doesn't look much like a folding bike – find out how the Dahon Jack performs in the Practical Motorhome review

Overview

The Dahon Jack barely looks like a folding bike at all. The ride is in a different league from the other bikes on test: it’s easily the quickest and most comfortable bike, rolling along smoothly on its fat tyres. The riding position puts more weight on the wrists than the other bikes, but it’s not a big problem. Folding the Jack is a different story, however. An Allen key is needed to collapse the handlebars and a tool is also required to remove the Jack’s folding pedal; the frame then folds in half. You’re then left with a bike that’s just about small enough to squeeze into a large under-bed locker.

Price £450.
