    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.

    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!

    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.
