|My wife's new ride: The 2010 Dahon Jetstream P8|
It was worth the wait as a phone call from my contact in Le Run Industries had confirmed its arrival here in Kuala Lumpur.
The wait was nearly a month as Michelle's Jetstream P8 made it all the way from Indonesia.
This one is intended for our CFAL ride in Penang.
I wasn't going to ride alone with my Jetstream EX and wanted my wife to have her own full-suspension folding bike.
The Jetstream P8 seemed like a perfect choice for her.
Pound for pound, its more solid and better handling than any bike of its class including the entry-level Birdy bike from Pacific cycles.
I dare say this because of the Jetstream P8's overall built and quality..
|The version that came in has a single RST front fork coil suspension|
|The German-A elastomer suspension was not part of the 2010 Jetstream P8|
The German-A gave the Jetstream its unique look and personality. Without it, the Jetstream P8 is more 'gentle' and subtle in appearance.
I must say that when it comes to handling, the Jetstream P8 would easily top the Birdy folding bike.
Its a much more solid ride. And with the gear inches ranging from 32 - 93", you can literally go anywhere with this bike.
|The suntour epicon adjustable rear shock|
It has a positive and negative return for light offroad settings.
I have tried this in the park and it worked for me.
We took this bike straight from its shipping container to an easy 16km course including
On the whole, at a pricetag of RM3.9K, this is a moderately-priced full-suspension foldie.
Its bound for the Rodalink store in Bangsar and Seri Hartamas sometime in mid-September.
