    Dahon Jetstream P8, how similar to D7 speed?

    Someone is selling a lightly used one for $300. I already have a 07' D7 speed and want a spare bike so I can swap out components as needed. Anyone know if the wheels are interchangeable? I would like an extra wheel set for my winter studded tires. Also can the rack on the D7 fit on the jetstream?

    wheels should be fine
    rack will not fit on a jetstream as there are no mounting points on the suspension strut ( or mon stay)

    this one will fit

    300 bucks sounds like a good deal
    I would go for it

    The Jetstream is my favorite of the entire Dahon line. Heck... I was recently contemplating starting a thread about it (even though I don't own one). $300 sounds like a really good price. I would snatch it up.

    I am not sure $300 is a good price considering it has no fenders or rack. Plus I don't have a need for the suspension since I am quite comfortable riding my suspension-less D7. I see the suspension as another part for something to go wrong. Or am I missing something else abuot this bike?

    Just looking at straight comparison between the two bikes... the JetStream has better components overall and it does weigh a few pounds less (partially due to the lack of fenders and rack).

    The nice thing about it is that you can take it on the trails and the street. If you don't plan to go offroad then yeah... it wouldn't be worth it to you. Though it is still a really nice bike.
