    My R20 isn't a folder....does that mean it's useless??
    I think not, what attracted me to it was the brilliant performance of the 20" wheel in terms of acceleration, strength, agility and handling, especially when loaded b & f with panniers, and fast bunch rides can be quite good fun....if you're game. When traveling in a car or parking it at work it's still small enough to be stored right out of the way...like the folding version.
    I would say that many folding bike owners rarely fold their bikes, but it's good to have that option.

    Too BMXey for my tastes. If you ignore the natty frame shapes it basically just is a bmx with better brakes.

    Reminds me of my '68 Schwinn Run-A-Bout. Way too cool for its time. Just wait 40 years and ride it whenever your 14 yr old daughter has friends over...........

    Dunno...I fold mine a whole lot hopping on and off trains and rolling it inside buildings during my classes. I find that if I keep it unfolded people protest "no bikes inside!", but if I fold it, people magically become curious about it instead. So yeah, for my purposes it's useless.

    Might have too much rake? What's it good for? The web page gives some clues:

    "Easy wheelie" the only urban bike that is also made for wheelies

    I'm not sure I like the name or the "Ride it like you stole it" suggestion, though. I mean, where does it end?

    The Make My Day Magnum -- Blast a hole through the peloton!
    The Rageaholic -- The ultimate "get out of my friggin' way" ride!
    The Off the Cliff -- Descend like you're too stoned to fear!
