    Diblasi R22 reviews anyone?

    Any one any experience of the Diblasi R22 Model.

    I had a 16" version and liked the small narrow fold,quick fold less than 3 secounds,toughness of the bike.

    I dissliked the weight,internal hub brakes worked welll but limited upgrade potentials,flexy seatpost tubes.

    However this 20" version has V brakes meaning that I can upgrade the gearing easier, it will fit big apple tyres. It folds even smaller,and quicker. plus the 20" wheels should give a better ride. I could shed some weight of it by changing parts, and the seatpost looks stronger and longer.

    However at around 680-750 for the SS model it is more than I am willing to pay. I personally would prefer only of these to a Brompton for the simular price, but I would not pay Brompton prices either.

    I am getting very tempted, if a used one,or a signifcatly discounted one, came about I would certianely give it a go.

    The "instant" fold is the best on the market IMO.
