S.D.G.'s unique I-Beam system, which employs a single composite "rail" molded into the base of the saddle, versus dual metal rails, saves significant weight and roughly triples the fore-aft adjustability of standard seats. Using S.D.G.'s I-Beam rail system, Dahon and S.D.G collaborated to develop the lightweight I-Flex saddle.

    Couldn't find interbike pics online, but the HP-Velo Scorpoin folding trike was apparently going to be launched there (though may have been at Eurobike as well)

    The Birdy is poorly folded!

    The yellow bike is a Dahon Speed Pro TT.

    The Dahon Curve reduces to a smallish folded package, although it looks quite tall...

    The pink KHS looks like nice - one for the sportier lady perhaps?

    I was interested in them exhibiting what appeared to be a Birdy Red in a silver finish. Would have thought they would be focussing on pushing their rather more modern looking monocoque frames?

    Edit: ah - see other models in background...please ignore

    WRT that green cruiser.... am I the only one confused by whatever-the-hell's going on with the thing's rear wheel?

    It looks like a wheel with a totally enclosed fender, but the fender is.... sitting on the ground?

    It's probably a few mil off the ground. Design cue taken off the old hot-rods where they used to 'fair in' the rear wheels with neat covers over the rear wheels and mudguards. Kinda like the Audi in that terrible adaptation of 'I, Robot'.


    A total pain if any crud gets stuck up there but I suppose you only cruise along a beach pavement in the sun so probably not an issue. I think it looks pretty cool!

    Dennis at the Fixed Gear Gallery has a bunch of general stuff on his site - one folder I saw on this page: Single speed 16" Breezer

    I'D RIDE that pink KHS. It's cute!

    Yeah,Smart move Joe!

    A 16 inch itzy is not much less itzier than a 14 incher and tires are easier to find in greater variety.I tried to find high pressure tires for my roll n fold .The best i could do was 50 psi or so.

    Oops. I was searching their site for "folding", and that was the highest search result.

    Sorry
