    CarryMe -- questions

    I've read a little bit about this bike and looked at Pacific Cycles website. But I can't find some important specific details:

    - What does this bike cost and can you buy it in the US? The Pacific Cycles website doesn't give prices. They do list a distributor in Minnesota, but I emailed and haven't heard back from them yet.

    - I'v seen pictures of the bike open and folded, but none of the in between steps. How does it fold -- how many steps, is it tricky, etc? Any vids online might be helpful.

    The MSRP seems to be $500, but I paid more like $400 for mine.

    The owner of the Minnesota distribution company also owns a bike shop called Edina Bike. Edina Bike sells the Carryme for $500 here:

    You can also get it for $480 here:

    Trophybikes in Philadelphia also used to have one listed for sale on their website, but it looks like it's gone. I guess they sold it, though I'm sure they could get more:

    Please note that the guy in the video doesn't seem to be in any particular hurry. I guess that's good so you can get a better look at what he's doing, but don't let it ruin your perception of how quickly the Carryme can be folded.

    Folding while not Tikit fast, is still quite easy. Maybe a 4/5 step process. Takes me 30 secs. No worries here mate!

    http://edinabike.com/ is a great company to do business with. They will match prices and the owner bends over backwards to make to make the customer happy. I am very impressed with them.

    ...and that's if you want to fold it all the way. If you don't adjust the height of the seat or handlebars then you can get a package about the size of the Strida that will stand by itself in the corner in about 5 seconds. See 00:59 through 01:04 here:
