Link C7

The Basic One

Travel by bicycle has one often overlooked benefit — you keep your own schedule. No listening to traffic reports or leaving an hour early or later to get parking. The portable Link C7 goes one step further because it also folds and comes inside with you so you’ll never need to wonder if it’ll still be there when it’s time to head to your next stop.

Luggage Socket

Carry More Stuff

When you need to carry more stuff on your bike, just plug the optional Luggage Truss into the Luggage Socket that’s welded to the head tube of every Tern bike. The Luggage Truss works with any bag, basket, or rack with a KLICKfix adapter.

At around $1,000, they’re well priced, sitting just above the budget Dahon bikes and below the comparable Brompton models. Tern bikes in general are well appointed, and feature some impressive construction that makes for a comfortable ride that rivals more expensive folders."
