P stands for Premium
Got a new bike, a Dahon Mu P8 and I am loving it.
This bike is so much nicer than the Vitesse it replaced. I love the looks of it, it is kinda like a larger Curve.
The ride is so much nicer, the handling seems more precise. It is a different frame style so I am sure that accounts for some. The Marathon Supreme tires must account for the rest.
It seems to accelerate better too. The lower weight helps this.
For now it is stock except for the rack and the fenders, both Dahon items.
Thor once said that the P stands for premium, well it really does. Better brakes, wheels, BB cartridge, roller bearing in the hubs, has QRs on the wheels.
Even little things like the grips and seat are good enough to keep.
I am happy.
