Birdy Touring - plus high-end upgrades - UK seller
I'm selling my mine - don't use it enough, or so I'm told :(
Would take cash or cash and part-ex for something less high-end

* Schwalbe Marathon Racer tyres
* High quality Bontranger brake cables
* Birdy Touring rack
* Kick stand
* MKS Q/R pedals
Want Birdy. Have Upgraded Swift.
I would also consider an outright sale for an interested buyer.
I'm thinking for my purposes a Birdy might be more practical, and I've been yearning for one. I bought the Swift new in 2010, and it has many upgrades with new parts, and it is build for speed. The strong points of the Swift I think are well known. Here are the specs of mine:
451 "speedmax" wheels from thorusa
tiagra sti shifters
105 rear derailleur
kcnc lite wing seatpost
vuelta 60t chainring
tektro cr720 cantilever brakes w/ "v-brake extenders" from thorusa
All in all, the upgrades make the Swift more costly than most stock Birdy's.
Here are some links to some pics:
I can also throw in the stock parts that I had upgraded if you would want those to (ie wheels, 56t chainring, v-brakes, stock seatpost, derailleur, crankset and pedals).
Send me a PM if you have a Birdy and are interested in a trade. I would be more interested in a the new style Birdy, fyi.
