    Oops! Almost bought another folder!

    We stopped in an Italian motorway stop and they had a small wheel folder for sale @ 130 Euros (about 90) I had my credit card out, but the guy walked away, then I thought, 'Humm, must be cheaper somewhere off the motorway'

    Phew! Glad I didn't act hastily now, because..................

    Smartbike

    Now that's cheap

    I simply can not imagine why you want a bike with 8 inch solid wheels .14 inches would be as small as i would go.

    The same reason as the miniature tandem, it is small enough to fit into a nook or cranny on my bus, & would be another mad vehicle for the bands & their crews to have a loon about on! My kids would like to play with it too.

    Yeh, diff. strokes for diff. folks. For kids and messing around purposes the second price is a steal! Rock/Ride on!

    Better buy a skateboard !

    That's not a bike, I bet you don't even keep up cycling on it for 10 minutes.
    And how fast can it go with those silly wheels?

    As I've already stated it is not intended as a serious bike, I already own most people's wishlists and beyond. I have a choice of around 12 bikes to go out on today. If I do buy one it is only for the fun side of when fellow Tour members & I have a loon about. This is especially true at all the festivals in the summer. It would certainly be more than capable of carrying a Tour-Manager 20 or 30 times from the bus to the Backstage to Production to the Artist's Village etc. So sorry your comment on skateboards is dumb! Anyway a good usable skateboard would cost more!
