Proper care of your DAHON bicycle requires regular maintenance, inspection, and adjustment. New bicycles must be assembled and adjusted by an authorized DAHON reseller.
Upon every ride DAHON bicycles should be inspected for properly tensioned folding latches, free play, as well as changes in ride quality. Any change should be checked and adjusted before riding. If you are unsure about a function or use of your DAHON bicycle, return to your authorized DAHON reseller for instruction. This includes folding, unfolding, adjustment, shifting, and braking.
3 months after purchase
your DAHON bicycle must be returned to your original authorized DAHON reseller for inspection and adjustment.
Annual maintenance at the bicycle owner’s expense is required. A claim may not be considered without proper maintenance records.
