dahon jetstream p8 vs curve ride

I am just curious what all the bike experts think...I had a 2006 Jetstream P8 for a short time a couple of years ago. I really didn't like it and wound up selling it. I thought the ride was really unstable and the bike always felt like it was going to come out from under me when I hit a big bump.

I bought a Curve a few weeks ago and have had a blast on it. The steering is as twitchy as the Jetstream, but I don't feel unstable on it like the other bike. It feels much more like a solid ride. And it really takes bumps well.

So what is it? Fatter tires? No suspension? Lower center of gravity for the smaller tires? I'm just curious what you guys think.

I never read too much about the Jetstream. It doesn't seem like a popular choice.

My vote is lower center of gravity.

Big Apple tires. They make a lot of difference.
