This is a lightweight folding bike with some air suspension rear, and a miniumum vibration absorbsion from the Pantour suspension hub. We've built this one as a real blast from the past, from the days when folding bikes were light, with some superlight wheels and air rear shock. Despite adding the very adjustable Tern Andros handlebar stem, we were surprised to find that the completed bike only weighed a smidge under 10kg.
The bike is fitted with an 9 speed Shimano Claris Drive system, Truvativ Elita splined (ISIS) chainset with aluminium double guard, and a Dahon Kinetix Pro wheelset The bike is held together when folded by a Dahon Magnetix system and can be wheeled along very easily from the saddle. It has an air rear shock unit that will adjust to your preference by altering the air pressure in the chamber.
This is designed for more of a sport rider with ample adjustment to obtain a suitable reach whilst maintaining a sports style stance, for riders up to 6ft. (A little bit shorter than is normal for Dahon as we have used a 500mm seatpost rather than 580mm) If you require a sit up and beg riding stance this bike is not for you !
