    Looking For Reviews For Dahon Vitesse P18

    Hello foldies !

    Is there any one who have a Vitesse P18 and would like to write a review of it.
    If its possible to compare the Vitesse p18 and Speed 8 that would be awesome!

    Have look over the web but cant find any good reviews of the bike.

    I own a speed p8 today but want to buy a new and thinking of Vitesse P18

    P18 vs. Speed 8

    I have both and I don't think you can compare them against each other. The Speed 8 is the smoother ride, but with only 8 gears a bit limited to what you can ride. The P18 is a full road bike, ride almost anywhere. I think the P18 should be compared against the MuP24, which I also have. I'm not a fan of the Dual-Drive system, too noise in middle setting and the Mu frame hits my heal when I pedal. If you are just riding in an urban setting the Speed 8 is perfect, if you ride long distance in the country the P18 is perfect. Best yet, buy both!.

    thank you where much for the answer.
    Fun to know that someone having a Vitesse P18
    I riding from work 2-3 times a week its 33 km one way.
    I really think Vitesse P18 is perfect for me due to I find the Speed P8 is missing gears for road/parvel ways.

    Hi Zteam2

    I was just thinking if it possible to get 40mm tires on the Vitesse p18?
    or 35mm winter tires ? (donīt know what the spikes are called in English)
    Is it space between the tires and frame ?

    The Schwalbe Marathon Winter tire should work. It has spikes. See:

    about halfway down the page.
