Folding bike stores in China?

As I've mentioned before here, I'm going to China this spring, around mid-March for a concert tour. I'm thinking of picking up a folder while there. Can anyone in here recommend what model to buy and where to buy it from?

(posted this on the Asia forum too, but it seems like no one is on there)

I'm in CN these daya and haven't found a folder specific shop. I did see one on the web in Tianjin, and they carried Birdy and CarryMe ... but at import (taxed) prices.

There are low cost local brand bikes everywhere, which are very very inexpensive but probably won't interest you.

There are also many Dahon dealers, who carry imported bikes (at foreign prices) as well as the unique to CN Dahon models, and there are one or two that might be of interest.

Pacific TW (OEM for Birdy, Reach, CarryMe etc) list 12 CN delaers, and these shops might be worth a visit:

There are also one or two decent Oyama bikes (FBI series).

The Dahon models look interesting...must ask my Chinese-literate relatives to translate and find the addresses for the Beijing or Shanghai shops (those are the only two cities we're going to). What are the prices like over there?
