Please Post some pics and tell us how it rides.
Here's a pic of the Jetstream.
I've posted some more on my flickr here
I made some changes from the factory bike, adding some Big Apple tires and some Crank Bros pedals.
I've only had a chance for a couple of short rides on it, but so far it's been superb. The suspension is far better than I suspected it would be. The big apple tires help the ride even more.
I thought going from a 27speed to an 8 might cause a problem on the hills, but it wasn't too bad. The build quality seems great, and all the parts the spec'd it with good. Apart from the pedals which are too slippy (Hence the Candy 1's).
Folding it takes no time and is a breeze. It's a bit tricky to get it rolling when folded, but I think it something I will find the knack for.
The 20in wheels are great, it's a bit more twitchy than my 26in wheels on my MTB, but nothing I cannot get used to. In fact round town with silly pedestrians and cars it's advantage! I'm considering getting some off road tires/wheels and seeing if it can even replace my mountain bike! I've seen other jetstream owners do this with great sucess.
