    That's pretty neat. Hopefully not vapourware!

    Sharp! I'd like to see it with 406 wheels. I appreciate the single-sided rear end, and how the rotor remains with the frame. I wonder if they've played with a single sided fork?

    Those folding handlebars give me butterflies. I could just imagine those "folding" at an inopportune moment.
    Plus I think I'd like to choose my own handlebars etc. Wonder how well you could upgrade

    Not a commuter bike, I guess, since you have to take the wheels off to fold.
