    Breezer Brompton Clone?

    Saw this thing in a store the other day, didn't test-ride it though:

    http://www.breezerbikes.com/bike_det...ompact&bike=i3

    Looks like a Brompton knock-off to me. Anyone tried it / know about it?

    I saw one in the store too, but I wouldn't say that it's a Brompton clone.

    At least not any more than the Birdy or a Mezzo.

    Actually to me, it looks more like a cross between a Swift (in the folded postion) and a Brompton (in the riding position).

    Actually to me, it looks like a Mission Space Genie.

    The Breezer i3 has been around for several years now. I think I remember information that it was made for them by Oyama, but can't track it down at the moment.
    You're right, I do have more bikes than I need.

    I don't think the Breezer folders are selling all that great, they've reduced their line from three to two offerings over the years, the 20" nexus7 equipped folder is no longer offered.

    Yes ,if this bike was British itwould be called a mission space genie.I started a thread about there upgrade potention a while back. OK bike if cheap,but needs higher seatpost for most adults. I could not find a reason to keep even the highly upgraded bike I ended up with in this thread compaired to my other folded bikes.
