Joe P24

The Urban Warrior

The urban landscape of potholes, rail crossings, drainage gates and curbs isn’t kind to skinny tires and flexy frames. Day-in, day-out transportation needs to be robust, burly and just a bit nasty to stand up to the abuse. The Joe P24 is all that but it’s still civilized enough to fold quickly and hide in a closet when company is over.

DoubleTruss

3-D = Stronger

Folding bikes have a sometimes deserved reputation for flexy frames. All Tern frames feature patented DoubleTruss technology which turns the rear half of the frame into a three dimensional truss so that it’s much more resistant to torsional forces. That equals increased stiffness and much better power transfer from the pedals to the rear wheel.

NVO Axis Stem

Adjusts to Fit You

Every rider has a unique combination of body shape and riding position that feels most comfortable. That’s why a bike that adapts to the rider is so important. The Axis stem delivers an incredible range of height and reach adjustment. For storage, the Axis stem can be rotated 90 degrees for even more compact storage options. And the tool for making all of these adjustments? Stashed in your right handlebar grip.

BioLogic Arx Grips with T-Tool

Be Prepared

You know the feeling: you’re on a ride and you need to adjust something and discover that you’ve left your bike tool at home. BioLogic figured that if the most handy tools could be stashed on the bike someplace, it would be one less thing to worry about. So they designed the T-Tool – a special bar end plug and hex key tool that fit right inside the handlebar grip – invisible but always there when you need it. The patented T-Tool features 4 mm, 5 mm, and 6 mm hex keys built into one handy unit with a long leverage design for the 5 mm and 6 mm tools.

"With wider tires to tackle cobblestones and weather-beaten paths, a "doubletruss" rear frame for stiffness and 24 speeds, the utilitarian bike can tackle most commutes while allowing the option of being packed up for the train or bus instead."

"Now the last folding bike that I rode had a “squishy” feeling to it – the frame wasn’t super sturdy, and tended to flex on big bumps.  That’s not a problem with the Joe D24 though, because Tern has gone out of their way to make sure that the frame here is completely solid."
