    Will BionX PL 350 DT 20" work with Dahon Speed P8?

    Will BionX SL 350 DT work with Dahon Speed P8?

    I'm pretty sure it will but I want to get further confirmation with the members here before I pull the trigger. Is the Dahon Speed P8 20" wheel a good candidate for the BionX SL 350 DT (downtube) kit?

    Also, where would you buy this kit if you were going to purchase this exact kit online? (I don't want to accidentally get the wrong one). I will need the whole kit: motor, hub and control panel.

    This is a stupid question but, my Dahon is an 8speed, do I need to order this kit as an "8 Speed Freewheel"? If not, what do I select for "Freewheel" option?

    Also "Torque Collar Size" is another option I see I am being asked. How do I know what I need there?

    My plan is to purchase online and either install it myself or allow a local repair shop to do it. Depends on how I feel when it arrives.

    Anything else I should know or watch out for before laying down the money?

    Thanks!

    I purchased a new Bionx online and was sorry I did not buy it from the nearest Bionx dealer. I did have problems with it. After I bought online I was either forced to pay for shipping back to where I bought it or pay labor to the local Bionx dealer for the fix. Since I was sold a hub that immediatly failed I was not happy with the situation.

    I don't think there are any Bionx dealers in my state and going into NY is not feasible at the moment for me.

    Looks like the PL 500 will work. See:

    http://www.thorusa.com/accessories/bionix.htm

    I suggest you contact Thor at ThorUSA.com. He can likely provide some good information on what works and what doesn't work on a Dahon Speed P8.
