    Folding bike

    I'm not really in the market for a folder, but I ran across this on ebay.

    OMSTAR Compact Folding Bike

    Anyone ever ride an OMStar folder?
    Is it really worth the $110 dollars, (after shipping) that they are asking?
    It seems like a pretty reasonable price for a multi-speed folder, but it could just be another "bikesdirect" clunker.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    I didn't even know there was a folding forum. Thanks.

    Can an admin move this thread?
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    Done.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    It is a clunker with the absolute cheapest parts money can buy. These are destined for landfills. Ridden a few times, found to be severaly wanting and then consigned to the garage for 7.3 years, after which they get put out on the street following unsuccessful ebay sale.

    Caveat: I have never ridden one and may be pleasantly surprised. Unlikely, though.
