Dahon International: Sea Otter Classic

At the end of Sea Otter, the folks of Dahon International gave us a new bike to reivew. They handed us a brand spankin’ new Dahon Fuego. It’s a great XC bike that folds!

Here’s Jeremy holding the Fuego. He’ll be testing this bad boy out so stick around for the review.
Dahon Fuego

Here’s a description straight from the website:

Hate airline bike surcharges and the hassle of taking your bike on trips? Join the crowd. That’s why we designed the Fuego, an ultra portable full-suspension MTB for hard-core Marathon/Enduro riding. We co-designed the frame with Joe Murray, Hall of Fame Mountain Biker, two-time MTB world champion, and master bike designer. The Fuego features a double-butted 7005 aluminum frame with 4â€? of front and rear travel and Joe Murray’s LSR linkage technology and Threshold Linkage Design. Translation: you can climb like a mountain goat without the efficiency loss normally associated with full suspension bikes. The icing on the cake is that Patented InterLockâ„¢ Joint Technology allows you to pack the bike into an airline suitcase in only fifteen minutes. Ride anywhere…ride everywhere.

LSR (Low Shock Ratio) Technology allows the shock to run at substantially lower pressures for improved sensitivity and shock durability
Threshold Linkage Design minimizes pedal bob while maintaining small bump sensitivity
Mini Rocker design reduces weight, increases rear triangle stiffness, and increases bearing life
Race-ready components: RockShox Reba SL fork and Ario shock, SRAM X9 drivetrain, American Classic hubs, Kenda Nevegal tires
Adjustable rear travel: 4 or 4.5�
NVO InfiniteAdjust stem for instantaneous stem height adjustments to match terrain
