Fractured asphalt, ruts and potholes; sometimes you see them, sometimes you don’t. The Jetstream D8 flies over these urban imperfections safely and effortlessly. A full suspension system is taken to a new level with a X fusion air shock system allowing you to have full cruising comfort for your ride.
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 D8 chainset which is perfectly functional, a basic rear suspension unit with spring rather than the original air system that requires frequent topups. The wheels are better than original having 28 spokes front and rear rather than the normal 28/20 with a quality Kinetic Comp Rim from Tern Bicycles. The gear mech is also an upgrade as we have used Shimano Claris
This bike is fitted with a 8 speed Drive system and a Dahon Q-release Kinetix Comp Wheelset. Our Jetstream P8 folds in a manner identical to the standard Jetstream D/P8 which has an external folding handlebar. 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: 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.
