I do not know if I can trust my eyes, but aren't these bicycles Dahon with different paint and stickers?

Yep, looks like a Dahon copy to me too. Dahon has probably helped Breezer with these.

Breezer Zag8



Packed with features that will give years of service and comfort, the Zag8 offers the following upgrades over the Breezer Zig7:
BioLogic™ grips and BioLogic™ Velvet saddle
Avid Brake levers, Kinetix brakes with SilentGrip ceramic pads
SRAM 8-speed derailleur for wider ratio, smoother shifts
Aluminum folding pedals
Kinetix quick-release hubs for added versatility
Kinetix Comp double-wall CNC rims for smoothest braking
Schwalbe Marathon Racer tires with RaceGuard puncture protection
3M reflective tire stripes. Be seen!
SKS fenders from Germany
Color: Black Satin
Weight: 23.5 lbs.
MSRP: $599


Dahon
BioLogic™ Velvet Saddle


A few years ago, SDG's product honcho was at Whistler, getting set up on a Kona DH demo bike when he noticed that a lot of the bikes were out of commission because the saddle rails were broken. He went back to work determined to design a stronger saddle that could handle the abuse dished out by down-hillers and free riders. In a flash of brilliance, he conceived of a system to replace saddle rails with a single carbon-composite beam. The new system was much stronger but he also discovered a few unexpected benefits: a dramatic reduction in weight, 200% more fore-aft adjustment to fit a wider range of riders, and super simple one bolt adjustment. Who would have expected that a well-padded I-Beam saddle designed for all mountain riding would weigh less than a super skinny racing saddle with Ti rails? When we spotted SDG's innovative new technology, we had to have it. So we collaborated with SDG to develop a series of custom saddles and seat posts exclusively for Dahon. The BioLogic™ Velvet is a wide and ultra plush saddle designed for comfort. But by utilizing SDG's I-Beam technology, we've reduced the weight by 200 grams compared to comparable steel rail saddles. US $75.00


Breezer appears to be associated with Dahon by apparently licenseing their components as well as the frame. Just check out some basic components-right down to their copyrighted names!

Look at the frame of the Breezer and the frame of the 2006 Dahon Vitesse D7

The one cool thing with the Breezer is that you can buy just a frame and fork, though, allowing you to build the bike any way you want.

Hi Thor,
Last time I was at the breezer site, they were selling just the frame for $235 at their online store. Here is the link:
http://www.breezerbikes.com/CatDetai...=45&category=6
It's their i7 frameset for 20" wheel base. It would be awesome if you were able to carry the frame, as I and I think many others would like to build up our own drive trains. BTW, when do you think you'll be carrying the MKS clipless pedals? I'm in no rush (gotta save $$$ up), I first found out about them through one of your postings and would rather give you the business as such.
