I was just looking around... for nothing in particular, and found this. It's too cool!

Yes it is.
If they ever finish the light rail here and it doesn't suck I'm all about moving to the sticks where it's cheap and getting a folder - that is if I can't take a real bike on it.

That looks like someone left a Kogswell in the dryer too long. If it wasn't $900 I probably would have one.
It's interesting that they spec it with a Brooks. That's kind of a turn-off for the few non-leather and the many non-Brooks people out there. Also, that wood chain guard? Get the road forum weight weenies in here to have a fit!
That said, I think it's totally sick and I would very much enjoy one.
I like the use of wood and leather, nice touch.
One of the LBS owners here (a place called Two Wheel Drive) had one. I walked in to find him soaking and heating Proofhide into the Brooks (it's a pre-softened Brooks). It's a nifty little foldup, with leather grips and all, and even sports a flip flop rear wheel, 17t freewheel/fixed.

I'm a B rider in my local club. On a recent ride one of the A riders joined us riding this bike. It was a pretty hilly 50 mile ride on Long Island, NY and he kept passing us on the hills. It was starting to piss me off, in a nice way. To make it worse he was wearing sneakers.
way cool and yes those a nitto moustache bares and they are heat treated spec's out it has 1200 worth of parts on it

we had one in my shop as a special order, and the thing looks cool, it rides nice, but cause its a folder it feels really heavy and its really hard to skip on the smaller wheels.
