Wow that's a beautiful setup! I'm currently contemplating on getting one myself. Also from Manila. What's that grip protruding from the handle bar?

Carbon bar ends. Since I have a wide handlebar I moved them in. It's very useful during climbs or when I want to go on an aero position.

Cool. How's the ride and build quality? Is there a substantial difference in weight between the disc brake and the vbrake versions? Would a high rear rack from Dahon fit it?

It's very responsive. Build quality is very good. I guess it will depend if its a mechanical or hydraulic disc brake. Not familiar with the high rear rack from Dahon.

Nice looking bike bro, I'm currently living in NY but do come home every year or so. I see a lot of fb brands back home that I'm not familiar with, fnhon's, atomic and trix to name a few. I believe the brands back home offer a lot more customization, or is it just because we have more bike shops?
Is yours pre-built or assembled ? And a decent entry bike, assembled or pre-built with a dual crank would run about how much in php? Thanks in advance! BTW, nice looking bike and where are you back home? I signed up with the facebook group, United Folding Bikers and Tiklop Society of the Philippines

Thanks! It's assembled. For an entry level bike with dual crank would run between 16 to 26K. I'm a member of both TSP and UFB.
