Tern Link P9 Folding Bike Review
Fitness experts are in total agreement that cycling is one of the most effective ways to stay in shape. The problem is that it can also be impractical, especially if you are someone that has to travel a lot for work and are on the road regularly. Sure, you can try and find hotels that have a gym where you can get on a stationary bike, but if you are spending a large chunk of your day cooped up in a car, then you may appreciate a little fresh air. You could go to the added expense of adding a bike rack of some sort to your car or you could go one step better and purchase a folding bike that can easily be taken wherever you go.
A great example of a quality folding bike is the Tern Link P9, which has been designed for practicality, comfort, and perhaps most of all, speed. You can’t start a Tern Link P9 review without first addressing one of the major concerns that people have had in the past with folding bikes in general. The feeling has always been that the frames tend to be somewhat flexible and unreliable, but the Tern Link P9 folding bicycle uses Double Truss technology that adds a level of support not found in other folding bikes, and also increases the amount of power delivered from the rear to front wheel.
With that out of the way, it’s time to look at exactly what else you get with the Tern Link P9 folding bicycle. It weighs in at an extremely lightweight 25lbs, thanks in large part to the aluminum that is used in the fork, handle post and rear derailleur. Despite its lightweight feel, it will easily accommodate riders up to 230 lbs. It’s sleek, demure appearance belies the fact that it is indeed a sturdy piece of equipment that will handle all you care to throw at it.
The P9 is a single cog in the entire Link series, with Tern suggesting that this is the bike for those that like to feel the need for speed. The 20 inch wheels and 9-speed drivetrain will help you to pick up the pace, but the speed also translates into how quickly the P9 can be folded down into its compact 15? W x 31? L x 28? H folded size. That can normally be achieved in as little as 10 seconds, and the size makes it a perfect fit for the trunk of the car or a corner spot in your office.
It’s hard to find a Tern Link P9 review that has anything negative to say about this great folding bike, and that may because the manufacturers have spared no expense in the equipment and accessories used to put it together. From the Kinetix Supra cranks, to the BioLogic Impel saddle, the Tern Link P9 folding bike is quality made and earns every penny f0r price tag.
