The CHANGE 809 is an entry-level mountain bike that’s incredibly easy to stow away, travel with, and ride. It shares the same reliability-tested (ISO-4210) Changebike folding aluminum frame as in the CHANGE 811 folding rugged hybrid and CHANGE 812 performance folding mountain bike, but without the higher-end componentry.
What you get with this full-size folder is a rugged, 27-speed hardtail MTB with 27.5″ wheels and rugged-road-style, 1.5″ non-knobby tires. Potholes and broken streets? No problem. Big, heavy rider? No problem; Some of our riders are well over 350 lbs. It’s also a great bike for general gravel and unimproved trail use.
If you’re looking to do general trail and rough road riding but don’t want the extra expense of a lighter, carbon fiber fork, as on the CHANGE 811, then the CHANGE 809 is the bike for you. Or, if you’re into mountain biking, and need those front shocks, but not the extra expense of hydraulic brakes and FOX air shocks like on the CHANGE 812, this is the bike for you too. The CHANGE 809 comes with Wellgo 2nd generation flat pop-off pedals.
