    Is a Mezzo a much smaller fold than a Dahon Jetsream P8?

    Considering buying one of these two bikes. Just wondered how they compare in size.

    Anyone who has taken them on a train/subway/Tube please feel free to comment.

    Cheers

    I used to have an 09 or 08 jetstream P8. I've only seen the mezzo at the LBS. So, my memory may be a little cloudy...But I think that the mezzo gives you a smaller folded package than the P8. I seem to recall that I needed velcro straps to hold the P8 together. IMHO the mezzo would be easier to manage in a subway.

    Don't know the exact dimensions but yes, it's much smaller. The jetstream is amongst the bulkier of 20" folders whereas the Mezzo is a couple of cm off the size of a brompton. Massive difference in when it comes to crowded public transport.
