FWIW, I tried to contact KHS Japan something like 6-months ago (waaaaay before SFBikes met them at the tradeshow and developed a rapport).
They finally got back to me a week ago and said something to the effect of "you would have to buy them by the shipping container - about 200 bikes." LOL! Uh, no. I was sort of thinking "1 bike" thanks...
When I look at what was available 10 years ago for folders, the market has BOOMED. Multimode transport with bus, train and bike is a fact of life for many people.
Having options rocks. Lovin' my KHS. Thinking of something like a Dahon Piccolo as a "beater" for times when "bike" isn't my primary mode of transport. (bus downtown, roll a few blocks to shop, get back on bus home)
Well, off to shop for bike gear! Buddy of mine wants some SPD pedals and lights, we're gonna track down some folders in this area. (there are a couple of Dahons, a Halfway and a Norco Origami)
