Birdy or a GoBike

I am interested in both of these bikes. They look so awesome and heard some good stories about them. Does anyone know where I can find one (new or used)??? How much do these bikes usually run???

Thanks,
Branman

You will find US Birdy dealers listed at: http://www.rad-innovations.com/Dealers/dealers.html

I don't know about GoBike, I'm at the Interbike Show in Las Vegas right now. I note that GoBike is not represented here, at least not that I can find.

Cool thanks for the input. Yeah I just received my downtube but want to purchase another folder. I heard a lot of good reviews from these bikes so I became interested.

Thanks,

Hi Branman

You can find a lot of info on both these bikes on my website as I have owned a customised Birdy Red and currently own a GoBike X9 :-

Both bikes are great, but both have their downsides, one day someone, somewhere will get it just right...............sort of!
