    Pretty cool. Folding bike designs are just getting better and better.

    Pretty cool? What a TERRIBLE design for a bike!

    The pedals must be for show, to get this electric motor scooter into a different "moped" like category. I say this because they're too far to the rear - how would you pedal it for any distance?

    Yeah, you're right about the extreme rearward pedaling. I was really commenting about the folding.

    These types of bikes are probably only meant for the city.

    I think they are meant for making the designer/seller money. The designer only had the vaguest clue about what is a good bicycle. That thing looks terrible to ride.

    If people are getting around on A-bikes, I don't see why that lev is worse.

    (This is not to suggest I'd buy either of them. I'd use a scooter for such occasions.)

    Hah, does anyone get around on an A-Bike? Anybody on this forum have one or try to ride one for any distance? Another one of Sir Clive's bloopers.

    It's a shame to see how the mighty have fallen. I agree that the bike looks about as useful as poop on a stick. I'm willing to be proven wrong, just not at the cost of $400 of my own money. Anyone bringing one to the Folds-Up festival this year? I'll try it out, and eat my words if it turns out to be a great commuting tool.
