ok first thing first, I'm sorry for ressurecting an old dead thread but I'm wondering if anyone has owned either one of these abio bikes in the last year and what do they think of them in reliability. Cause now in Canada a few places are selling them for for mid $500's CDN. So to me that's a pretty good deal there for a 2nd bike for the wife to ride around in (that's the excuse i'm going with!). But I haven't heard anything about them even though they've been here for at least a year.
So has anyone have any long term reports on this? how would this compare to the dahons that are around this price range? I've never seen anyone even mention this, the main thing i'm afraid of is replacement parts for their proprietary shaft (belt drive would probably be easier cause it's a gates belt). And with the heavily lowered prices (from 790 USD) i'm not sure what's the state of the company for future support or are you on your own.
