    Translating through an online converter, it reads that the 28,800 price is suggested retail for the frame.

    Oooo, love the internal cable routing. Also love the little kickstand thingie that keeps the chainring from touching the ground when folded.

    Looks "high tech" but it is definitely not a proven technology at this point.

    However, looks like they might have a bunch of potential 'Beta testers' ready to pay big bucks for that opportunity.

    It keeps the world economy going 'round.

    These are similar to the Tyrell mini-velos:

    The Tyrell designs seem to have the edge
