    New folding bike spotted, the Dutch "Qwic"-branded folding bike

    Apparently it's called the Qwic Smartbike


    Google-translated link

    Spotted this on, of all places, the NYC Craigslist bikes section.

    16" Wheels
    Marketed at 199 Euros. No idea about components or build quality.

    To my eye it looks like a rebranded Dahon Curve, or a knockoff of same.

    These come up cheap on www.gumtree.com regularly. Some are obviously traders and others claim to be private ads. What puts me off is that the spec seems to change from ad to ad and they're always "..brand new condition, never been riden...'

    Dodgy!
