Samo's Jetstream EX maiden flight..

Hey folks,

I took my 2011 Dahon Jetstream EX full-suspension folding bike for a 71km ride to a hot springs. Its a cool 650meter descent to 110meters above sea level and I am happy to report that the new bike held up extremely well... Here are some highlights in pictures:



Here's a shot of my new riding friend DC Ong setting up his bike...



The Samo-mobile is in the background..



Beginning of the 25-km roll downhill..



A view of a small township in the background..



Up-close

Ahhh.... Coffee break before the last 5km climb back to the starting point...



Getting psyched-up for the climb..



Made it! First-timer Ong did a decent 71-km ride, his first long-distance trip..



We took nearly a day.. ahahahha!



Mission accomplished, the Jetstream EX completed her maiden flight..
