I own a Citizen Tokyo. You should consider the Citizen Gotham first instead of the Miami. The Gotham is much lighter and has better components. Both the Miami and the Gotham have 20" wheels. (My Tokyo has 16" wheels which is why I purchased it instead of the larger Gotham.)
You should take into account how you intend to use the bike, the area that you intend to use the bike, if you're going to be folding it often then how small/well it folds, how heavy it is, road conditions, budget, etc.
There is a long thread about a Flying Pigeon as well as several long threads about Citizen bikes. I have not purchased a bike from that eBay seller nor have I ever seen or ridden a Flying Pigeon so I cannot comment on that but I can comment on Citizen bikes: They are a great buy for the money and the people that run Citizen are very helpful, knowledgeable and very responsive to your questions.
I received my Tokyo 3 days (!!!) after placing my order so it was very fast shipping considering it was coming from Florida to NYC. I can highly recommend Citizen for entry level folding bikes that are a great deal for the money.
