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. We have fitted the expensive but very lightweight Kore I-Beam Seatpost and Saddle combination to keep the weight low. The Handlepost is an adjustable Q-lock type that you'll see fitted to some Tern and Bickerton bikes. This allows for height adjustment rather than the normal fixed lower type that's standard on the Jetstreams. The Front fork is Kinetix designed by 'German A' but it takes a twin pivot Road Front Brake and the fork blades are dark blue in colour rather than black.
This bike is fitted with a 7 speed Drive system and a 36 spoke Silver Wheelset. Our Jetstream P7 is more compact when folded than the standard Jetstream D/P8 which has an external folding handlebar. In addition the Frame is held together with the Dahon Magnetix System.
