    GoBike x9 ?????????

    Does anyone know where i can buy one of these bikes,
    I have spent almost 2 days on line trying to find a supplier
    It's so frustrating, why make a product no one can buy, or you need to be a detective to find it!
    I'd appreciate some help on this, Thanks

    GoBike is essentially unavailable. They've been promising shipping product for at least 2 years now.

    I'd forget about it for now, and pick up something else.

    Check out Birdy - it appears to be what go-bike was based on, and has a good reputation and a big following, (if not a tad pricy).

    Give up now and save your effort. I seem to recall that they are on the heavy side anyway.

    They're 12.9 kg, not too bad for a full suspension bike though no feather-weight either..

    You could try contacting them and asking where to buy: info@gobikecanada.com (from their website: www.gobikeonline.com)

    I see they still have the free case offer going. Hit the 'availability' button and then the 'special offer' button.

    Rather like the looks of the thing and the build quality seems good. Went with a Birdy as it's a bit lighter and cheaper. No regrets, as the Birdy is superbly engineered and constructed.

    Try-ed all of that and more but no luck. I have been looking at the Birdy, but it's just not singing the right tune for me. I haven't given up on the gobike though! so i may just go with a Dahon for now and keep the back door open for Gobike.
