    Breezer i3

    Has anyone tried a Breezer i3? It seems to be a Brompton clone available in the U.S.; however, the frame is hi-tensile steel and the bike weighs 32 lbs. You can read its specs at http://www.breezerbikes.com/BreezerfoldingSpec.htm . I've seen this bike for sale as cheap as $360 online; though a Curve might be a better deal but a less compact folder.

    I recall that it does not fold in an identical fashion as the Brompton. In fact, its fold is large compared with the Brompton.

    The i3 isn't a Brompton clone at all.

    The Dahon Curve folds much smaller.

    Thanks everyone for the input. I really thought the i3 was a clone. I guess its really hard to beat the Brompton for folded size in a 16" wheel.
