The Downtube 8C is the economical version of the 8H, the two bikes are nearly identical. The differences are in the drivetrain, the 8C uses a Sturmey Archer 8sp internal hub, a KMC stainless steel chain and standard chainring/cogs. The maintenance-free Sturmey Archer 8-speed internal hub is completely sealed from damaging dirt and grime. The 8C's solid legacy of bike excellence has been greatly enhanced with additional design upgrades. If you are a boater, RVer and commuter, you will simply adore this model. No where  else will you find a folding bike with suspension and an 8sp internal hub for under $1000. The new models have a disc front hub,  39T front chainring & 25T rear cog for a perfect gear range on the 20" wheels. What does all of that mean in layman terms? Well, you will have a bike that allows for a comfortable ride, and it folds up for compactness, and security. It also gives you clean and quiet riding without the fuss of a rear derailleur.

So that you could enjoy the ride, we included some excellent features that included the aluminum frame equipped with lightweight fenders. We also added a durable rack and kickstand. Plus we added high quality brake levers and Tecktro V brakes? We even matched up the levers and brakes with aluminum machined-sidewall rims, which make the bike able to stop on a dime, since the brakes prefer to bite down on a textured surface.

If you use your bike to commute, we thought about you too. We added a water bottle braze-on, but the cage is not included. And we also added an interface for the headtube bag ( bags will be available in March ). We also decided to integrate the headset into the head tube. Additional mini-bar ends and high-rise handlebars give the rider more edge by customizing the fit without having to interfere with the fold.
