Folding bikes need more suspension than regular bikes and we listened to the needs of our customers across the globe. So we are now introducing the Downtube 9FS (9 speed full suspension) folding bicycle! It is finally here and many people are pleased and so will you! For one, it is the model that is the most comfortable compared to our other bikes. It is preloaded with adjustable suspension located in the front and in the rear.
You can take this bike on long rides without needing any more than nine speeds! The bike’s build quality is amazing and solid as a rock! The wide handlebars make it easier to maneuver. You will even forget that you are riding a folding bike, if you are not careful.
Most folding bikes have smaller frames and wheels, which makes them stiffer than larger- wheeled bikes. Our 9FS bike is delivers super comfort and is EXACTLY what is going to work for most riders. You won’t want to stop riding! On top of being more comfy, you will love the high quality drivetrain by SunRace, which we added. We are proud to announce that its performance is similar to that of the Shimano Deore. In addition to the top notch frame with comfortable suspension, we added several high end parts and a small fold. If you could describe this bike in one cool sentence, it would be “This bike rocks!” It has some incredibly amazing features that you will enjoy every time you hop on this bike. It will fulfill almost all of your needs and more…
On this bike, we include features that will make it more enjoyable to go on long rides. You will notice the aluminum frame, rack braze-ons, but rack is not included; integrated headset, and removable frame protector.
Do you want to know why this bike stops FAST? I bet you will love to know that too! Well, its high end Tektro V brakes, two finger levers, which are matched with double-wall aluminum machined-sidewall rims is the reason; since this allows the brakes to become engaged on a textured surface!
We also offer standard upgrades for free and this includes the headtube bag interface and water bottle braze-on, but cage is not included.AND that’s not all!
With its adjustable suspension, it is so much easier to go up the hill. This bike is now fully disc ready. Yes, you heard right - it is 100% disc ready! In fact, we also include disc hubs that accept 6 bolt rotors. We also include frame tabs for the disc as well as disc cable routing. It also comes with a front derailleur braze-on with cable routing, which allows you to easily turn this bike into a 27 speed bicycle in a snap. Without hindrance to the fold, when you buy this bike, we customize it to your liking by adding mini bar-ends and high-rise handlebars.
When folded, it fits in any size vehicle. You will get tons of attention when riding on your bike. You will be almost obsessed with this bike when you get it. So what are you waiting for? Hit the purchase link and get to riding!
