Any body used these?
Has anybody upgraded one?
What is it like for commuting?
I have seen this bike on the internet.It does not fold as small as the Brompton that inspired it, due to the rear triangle not tucking right under the frame (a bit like a ridgeback).
However I have used larger folding bikes than the Brompton on trains and often it is the folded shape that is important. I find my Diblasi folder fitted in more spaces on trains , in locker rooms ,and in boots of small cars than either my Mezzo or Brompton. Despite being around 30cm longer when folded. It has much narrower and lower and therefore could slide in to smaller spaces. Flexibility was due to it smaller total vollume or the ability to stand on its end so its footprint is actually smaller. The missions stands on its end also, so how have owners found then for commuting.
It is a budget bike, but If upgraded it to say 9 speed shimano caspro and better parts would it be a rival for other 16" compact commuting bikes ?
