    Pegasus folding bikes???

    Does anybody know about these bikes?
    I found one on Ebay :

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Pegasus-Aluminum...12191037a15452

    know the specs? reliability?components?

    I got a pretty good deal, but I want to know more about the bike first.

    Way too much, for an off brand folder, i'd say. The bike looks to be equipped with very cheap parts. Steer Clear

    Got a deal for this bike at $60, but it's 16 in. wheels.
    I guess I'll probably stick with my other choice.
    Raleigh Stowaway for $90.

    Danger Will Robinson!

    This looks like the same bike - http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-ALUMINUM-FOL...QQcmdZViewItem

    The wording of the auction indicates the seller knows nothing about bicycles and he has only two positive feedbacks for cheap purchases. I'd avoid it like the plague.

    There's a buy-it-now for a Dahon D7 at the same price. Much better bike. http://cgi.ebay.com/dahon-speed-d7-f...QQcmdZViewItem

    If this is your first folder, hang out here a bit and educate yourself before making a purchase, as there is a flood of cheap junk on the market. I would stick with a known company. The brands mentioned in numerous threads and discussed at length here would be your best bets.

    All too often a poor decision in regards to a folding bike will put folks off on the concept.

    Good call Bruce.

    The OP should jump on that one if in the budget. Looks clean.
