Mezzos on eBay UK now
 
Before I purchased my bike, I had a look on eBay, but none were listed. But right now there are 2 there, one finishing in a couple of hours and one tomorrow. Both have no bids.

I'll be interested to see what they go for, if anything. But if someone wants to start their Sunday with a bargain, they may be quites successful.

For me - well, looks like the "if you don't like it you can always eBay it" may only apply to Bromptons :( But luckily I like it! :)

Does anyone rate the Mezzo compared to the Brompton? Won't get the same resale as not as well established. Seems very well engineered bike though!

A to B rates many folders here:

Brompton, at the top of the page, is their only 5-star rating. Mezzo, scrolling down the page, rates 2 stars.
There are links to their reviews. Hope this helps.

Sigh - the atob guide is old and (from the look of it) slightly Brompton-biased. The Mezzo has been tweaked in terms of design since the review. ezzos have their quirks and flaws like most folding bikes, but are certainly a strong alternative to the Brompton as a compact folding commuter for use multi-modal commuting in London. Might be worth checking the velovision site and buying an e-copy of the back issue with the Mezzo review - Peter Eland rated it (the Mezzo i4) very highly.

Ah - here we go - some old threads worth reading:

atob are Brompton fanatics, I don't trust their opinion on anything.

If you read a later folding society of the post 2005? Mezzo review it is quite positive and fair. Never though I would be saying that ! This review is harder to fing though on google search engine.
