Fractured asphalt, ruts and potholes; sometimes you see them, sometimes you don’t. The Jetstream D8 flies over these urban imperfections safely and effortlessly.
We have built this bike with the intention of keeping the price lower by compromising certain particular areas which do not affect the overall performance or durability. We have fitted a Dahon Vitesse chainset which is perfectly functional, a basic rear suspension unit with spring rather than the plusher original air system that requires frequent topups. The wheels have more spokes than normal for strength, being 36 spokes front and rear rather than 28/20 The gear mech is a basic Shimano but very functional.
This bike is fitted with a 7 speed Drive system and a 36 spoke Black Wheelset. Our Jetstream P7 folds in a manner identical to the standard Jetstream D/P8 which has an external folding handlebar. In addition the Frame is held together with the Dahon Magnetix System. It does not use the current more fragile chainwheel stand as we fit a longer seatpost instead. This makes the bike more compact than the standard model.
DISTANCE: SEAT POST TO HANDLEBAR Min: 580 mm (22.8") Max: 660 mm (26")
DISTANCE: SADDLE TO PEDAL Min: 610 mm (24") Recommended Max: 940 mm (37") As this bike has a 580mm Seatpost it will extend quite a lot more than this figure.
