Does this Chedech really fold/unfold as swiftly as the video suggests?

I was impressed by the speed of folding of this Brompton look-a-like but was wondering if it's really in real time. The folding up sequence in particular seems to have been edited several times:

ummm, the video obviously cuts parts of the process out, but it looks to be more from an artistic perspective than an attempt to deceive.

not really sure what point you're trying to make.. it's obviously been edited. obviously. if i weren't such a generously optimistic person i would assume that your post was intended as a sort of social media stealth marketing ploy:

"guys. hey, guys... is this not the most amazing
insert product category here that you've ever seen??? or is there just something wrong with my eyes???"

incidentally, did you know that "chedech" is hebrew for "righteousness"...

gag reflex triggered...

wait.. guys.. guys, it's a carbon copy.. get it? it's a copy of a brompton and it's.. it's made of of carbon fiber so, therefore, it is literally a carbon copy! oh, man.. i'm so good.

Don't be ridiculous, I'd never even heard of the brand until yesterday! I've never seen a Brompton fold or unfold and was wondering if this machine might be quicker or not. Why have you posted that image?

Because some people think it's Wild West here I guess.
Personally I would say thank you for sharing the bike for us.

Bike Friday's Hyper-fold Tikit was made to be quick.. you slap the back of the saddle it folds forward
and a cable that holds the stem latch clamp tight , slackens and you fold the handle bar mast Down
and the rear wheel portion folds to the left side ..

The Chedech should be a bit quicker because its handlepost & mainframe have release levers instead of twiddly knobs.

Want fast fold ? I have a Brompton .. there are aftermarket pieces that speed the fold . for the time fixated.
The Brompton world championship races are a Le Mans field running start to the bikes parked in a field Folded Up.

the clip they folded pushed it and re opened the Tikit in 17 seconds ..




Can the OP's find fold 'that' Fast , IDK ship Me One and I can practice a while then time it.
