new Mercedes folder

Noted this from the Folding Society site: http://foldsoc.blogspot.com/

New folder: full suspension, disc brakes, large folded size but rolls folded, no mention of weight. Hope to find out more.

Cool bike. Hopefully it doesn't weigh a ton and the accessories are not expensive. Oh wait... Mercedes-Benz...

I wonder how many would fit in a Mercedes ForTwo Smart Car?

Cool looking in a Kuwahara-kind-of way. Good color choice.

Looks great!... though it seems like it may weigh quite a bit... the fender look futuristic... the disc brake locks are a great feature... wonder how much?

It looks well ugly. Don't like those mudguards either. What is it with all the cage manufacturers making ltd. edition bikes? Some sort of manifestation of guilt?

Looks neat - I'd like to know more specs though.

Like... what size wheels are those?

I'd say they are ISO 349 or thereabouts judging by the scale of them.

The wheels look more like 305s to me.
