    Tyrell bikes anyone?

    Once again the Japanese seem to have the coolest bikes on offer. This Tyrell sorta looks like the mid-point between a Moulton and a Swift. I can just imagine Deckard on one...Me likey...

    Most likely they are flat plate, probably carbon fiber. No swing arm pivot needed and if the upper link is sturdy enough, a very intelligent design.

    My Japanese is very rusty- so I might have missed it, but, I didn't see any mention of being a folder.

    Marl - Sometimes me and a few others sneak the odd small wheeled bike into this forum as there is nowhere else more suited. If it offends we can try to make it clearer in the thread titles.

    Didn't bother me- I'm new to this folding bike stuff- so that was more of a "This is a folder?", if so "How does this thing fold?"
