    Wheel size though...the FS is the 20in model, right? I want the 16in wheels because they fit better on the bus.

    I know it is small but how are you going to get it in the bush?

    For whatever reason, I seem to recall that it was that price a while ago.

    Oh, quite easy. I have a rather large bush in front, you know.

    The price was $359 for a very long time, the $349 price will be in effect until the first week on May ( when we get restocked ).

    FYI market prices may not be as stable in the future. All factories around Beijing will be closed for three months because of the Olympics. This has led to huge demand from factories attempting to stock up on parts.....knowing there will be a shortage in the near future. The price of our pedals went up 40% and most other parts have jumped 10%-25% in less than a month. I expect this will have an inflationary effect on all markets ( not just bikes ) around July.

    Thanks,
    Yan

    Hey Yan,

    what do you think the price of your new models will be then. I want to get one of your FS models, but wasnt crazy about the pick color.

    thanks,
    sam

    I would like to keep it at the old price of $359, however my price is dependant on demand & the supply chain. If demand is too strong or if my future shipments are delayed I will adjust the price ( I do not want to sell out of FS bikes again ).

    Thanks,
    Yan

    Nekohime get yourself the Downtube Mini, it will suit you much more as an all-round folder. It's never just worth buying something for the sake of it being cheap. I've made that mistake before and regretted it.

    i'd like to see Bush in a green mini (skirt) rather than a green mini in the bush. Now wouldn't George look funny?

    Why is the mini so much more money than the Downtube 20" folders?

    1) Don't look at size to determine price.
    2) Selling price is seldomly related to cost price, it's more related to market forces, ie vendors will ask whatever buyers will pay.

    Sorry it will not come in black for at least in the next 12 months.

    Thanks,
    Yan
