A wrong US patent number printed on the frame?
US Patent of the IF technology:
Thanks for noting I tranposed the US patent number of our IF Patent. We had not noticed that small print typing error on our temp decals. For the production frames we will have to make sure that type O is fixed.
Right now we are still in the Tokyo area. This afternoon we will go and start to set up our booth so we are ready when the show opens tomorrow afternoon. The show will be a lot of fun because it is a consumer demo show and we will have many different bikes available to try.
I regret I'm unable to attend the show.
I'm looking forward to seeing the photos of the show on the Pacific Cycles' website.
The bike on the right is a folding recumbant from Tartaruga in Japan. http://www.tartaruga-ew.com/products_e_top.html Fellow designer Naotaka Yoshimatsu has developed various types of bicycles that he has had success in Japan in various European speacialty shops.
It can be folded in the middle and wheeled while the handlebars are still up. And then further compact by removing the seat and folding the handlebar. Yoshimatsu san travled with us on and off the trains with no problem.

Can you give us any clue when any of the IF Mode bikes will be released in the UK?
Is this Street style IF Reach edition now available?
