    Dahon Jetstream XP Rear Suspension

    I bought a used 2007 Jetstream XP and it's always had a real slow leak in the rear suspension (Cane Creek AD-5).

    A few months ago I ordered an overhaul kit knowing I'd have to rebuild it soon.

    Yesterday was that day. It will barely hold pressure through one ride.

    So I opened it up and it's real obvious it's been rebuilt before there were just enough tool marks to make me think that it won't last forever again.

    I overhauled the shock and pumped it to 200 lbs. and left it in a bucket of water for a few hours. No leaks.

    Reinstalled and took a ride. Now that I know that somebody did a rotten job trying to rebuild this shock once I don't have a lot of confidence in getting it too far away from home.

    I want to buy a new rear shock and want to upgrade but I can't seem to find the AD-12 anywhere. Does the Cloud Nine 6.5 x 1.5 fit the Jetsteam XP? There are no size specs on the Cane Creek site for the AD-5.

    AFAIK the Jetstream shock is a short version of the AD-5. Be very careful on taking measurements before you settle on an alternative.

    The Pacific Reach shock may be compatible size-wise; it is an elastomer shock module and superficially looks the same as the AD-5, but I can't check the size right now. If you post the AD-5 size here I can compare later. Overall length and hole size. The Reach is adjustable length-wise.

    Thor used to have the specific version of the AD-5 listed on his site, might be worth trying him.
    Dahon Jetstream XP '04 with DualDrive- folding not boring. And an '07 Dahon Cadenza- rather splendid too.

    Already sent Thor an email. Hopefully he's got one.
