    Check out the cool custom stuff from English Cycles

    Semi local too, out of Eugene, Or. Wish I had more money.

    To each his own, but I think his stuff is pretty sweet. Clean, innovative, etc.

    I wonder what the connection to Bike Friday, (also in Eugene), is. The color pallet is exactly the same. Maybe they just use the same paint shop.

    That green single side bike is awesome. Belt drive outside the chainstay. Also hidden rear brake. Very cool design.

    Oh my god that's ugly.

    Possibly the most expensive fork ever made, though.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I think they need a bigger plane if they need folding bikes...

    Think I have to disagree with that.
    What's with the skinny little pencils going from the rear axle to the seat post (Sorry - don't know what the technical name is). Not sure that would hold up to a Clyde.

    Internally routed cables thru the frame tubes. Rear brake cable is what you're asking about.

    No, the stays? what the rear brakes are mounted to that run between the rear axle and the seat tube/downtube deal.

    Pretty skinny. Makes the fork look like overkill

    Oh, you're talking about the seat stays. I watched a video about one of his mtn bikes and the interviewer asked the same question. He claimed because he makes his bikes out of steel there does not need to be as much material here. Beats me. He does custom stuff only, so I'm sure that would be adjusted accordingly based on the riders needs and weight.
