Dahon Visc D18- Suitcase packable bike with Suitcase - Appletini - Green -kit with - Origami Traveler Case (blue with yellow)

Availability: Out of stock

This is a kit composed of the Dahon Visc D18 and an excellent Origami Suitcase.  It will be shipped to you either as one set (bike in the suitcase) or separately.  Both will come with instructions for packing.  The Origami Traveler suitcase is standard "check in size" suitable (L+W+D <=62") and you will not incur oversized charges.  Origami Traveler Suitcase comes as standard color Blue with Yellow Accents  (Red and Lime Green colors available per custom request)

We consider the Visc D18 the nicest distance touring bicycle from Dahon on account of its wide gear range, high end derailleurs and effective, yet light to the scales build (24.5 lbs).  Suitcase weight is approx 12.5 lbs, so combined weight is 38 lbs. 

Talk about function, the Visc D18 comes with very wide gear range making it capable for climbing, cruising, urban jaunts and country travel. This is one of our absolute favorite bikes and we expect it also to quickly become yours. The Visc features With a new, dynamic frame design and 18 road ready speeds, using Shimano Tiagra transmission components. The Visc D18 is a star performer on back roads or city streets bridging the gap between high intensity jaunts and fun city outings.

For Packing:

  • Front and rear wheels are removed.

  • Wheels are packed (on angle) into suitcase.

  • Seat Post is removed.

  • Handlebar is removed from handlebar post  (5mm allen wrench required)

  • Frame is folded and layed over the wheels.

  • Seat post  and Handlebar are packed to suitcase. 

  • Handlebar is attached to shifting and braking cables and tech adjustment is required upon reassembly other than re-attaching the brake caliper to its standard quick release.

  • It is recomended that light packing layers be put between wheels, frame, handlebar and seatpost to keep in transit scratching from occuring.

For Assembly:

  • Reverse the process above

  • With practice this can be completed within 15 and even 10 minutes or less.

Your travels will never be the same.



The Visc D18 is extremely versatile.  Great for fast commutes and vacation jaunts both.

Quite light with a bit lower step through, and a wide range of 18 Gears with a Shimano Tiiagra derailleur set.. Really really a pleasure to ride.

This build comes custom with Separable Frame that allows the whole bike to be packed to a sub 62" Suitcase that can be dispatched as normal check-in baggage for air and long distance train travel.  As such it also fits tight in your vehicle, closet or anywhere else.

This is a special order bike and takes approximately 1 week to convert from our standard Visc D18.  

Feel free to contact me with direct questions and to discuss special options.
