The Tern Link C7 is an exceptionally popular model at The Urbane Cyclist due to its friendly price point and loads of immediately useful features. Something our customers love is the telescoping stem which allows riders to choose how upright or aggressive their upper body position will be while riding. The C7 is budget-friendly because it allows you to add your own suite of accessories as you ride. The Link C7 is a great means to enter into the joys of folding bikes without making a huge commitment. But with a ride as smooth as Tern's, you'll wonder how you lived this long without your Link.
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. The C7 is a simple seven speed folding bicycle. It's perfect for anyone who has limited space for a bicycle or must contend with crowded public transit.
The current C7 model is a new version with the FBL 2.0 hinge.
Awesome Tern Features:
Folding bikes have a sometimes deserved reputation for flexy frames. All Tern frames feature patented DoubleTruss technology which turns the rear half of the frame into a three dimensional truss so that it’s much more resistant to torsional forces. That equals increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel.
FBL FRAME JOINT
The FBL (Four-Bar Linkage) Joint is a tried and true design that keeps a frame securely locked. It features a forged and precision machined lever designed to offer a smooth surface for fingers. All other hardware is stainless steel for durability.
The Q-Lock is strong: it exceeds tough European EN standards for strength and durability. The Q-Lock is also safe and easy to use. Close the handlepost lever and the AutoLock engages, holding the lever in the locked position. Forged 6061 aluminum.
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. The benefit of a frame mounted luggage system (as opposed to fork or handlebar mounted) is that it doesn’t adversely affect steering. Available Tern accessories include: Kanga Rack, Tour Bag, and CarryAll Basket.
