Looks like some kind of Brompton clone. I don't think I've seen this particular one before.

I think it's a Breezer i3 clone. Amazing how it can look so much like a Brompton and still have such a horrible fold:

That was after a ride in L.A. in my '74 Alfa Romeo. (Only the top "folds".)

I agree; I hope I never need it! Just a safety precaution (plus it looks racy and dangerous).

thats a fair price for that quality of bike.

im in toronto, and that looks/sounds similar to what i picked up.. except i paid about 3/4 of that price..

new tires, and a tune up and its a very good bike.

heck if someone here bought it, i'd give u a good run down on what u could do to improve it, for minimal cost.

blackdogbicycles.com has a new KHS Mocha on sale for $199

(someone should rename this thread to the "bargain" thread so it officially includes ebay, craigslist, sales, etc)
