Looks like a Dahon or Dahon-copy. Auction says caliper brakes, but photo shows linear-pull. Also, something strange going on with the fork - it appears to be mounted backwards! Or maybe the handlebars & stem are backwards, depending on your perspective. Auction photo is small, so its hard to see clearly what's going on with the bike.

Raleigh Twenty near Spokane for relatively normal price

Found this listing on Craigslist; it's old, back from early December but is still up so the bike may still be available.

http://spokane.craigslist.org/bik/504096108.html

Listed at $100

Here's a Best-Of.... or a Better Of, or whatever:

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/bik/

SanFancisco CL now has thumbnails in their classifieds, at least for bikes. I want this in my area too! Here's hoping that they're rolling it out site-wide, and currently only have SanFran covered because that's where it started from.

Well, delivery to VIC... since I already have one, another would have to be a bargain.

This must be the model with the new SA 8x9 hub, 8 internal gears and a 9spd derailleur. Quite a range.

It also incorporates the controversial technology of having the front wheel reversed. Talk about twitchy steering!

Here's a couple in Cincinnati (these have been relisted)

http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/bik/566878186.html

I actually went a looked at them back in January; one's in better shape/original condition the other has a cobbled on BMX handlebar setup. He wanted $50 a piece back then, don't know that's he's really changed his mind (he listed them this way then too).
