What’s a Folding Bike Good for Anyway? My Summer With a Tern Link D7i
The things I like about this bike, the internal geared hub at the back and the dynamo add some weight… so if you have to carry your bike long distances or up and down stairs, you might want to think about a lighter model.

I think that tells you a lot about the quality of the product. After seven years of constant use, it is still very good. I’m very happy with it, and I recommend it to you if you don’t have one.
Folding Bike Review: Tern Link D7i
I really am disappointed to find problems with the design and manufacturing quality, given the money we spent. That said, the bike is otherwise incredible. Seriously. We love the ride, we love the look, we love essentially everything else about it.
You Might Be Surprised Where You Can Go on a Folding Bike
As a piece of engineering, the Tern is a marvel. I do have a few quibbles with the bike. Still, those are small complaints for a bike that surprised me with its functionality and rideability and I can see the bike being useful in many situations.
