These bikes look fast. In HK they have some big hills, that is why these bikes have all those gears. They look like beeing some sort of bososoku teenager kind of bike. In any case meant to go fast???

20" non folding frames in U.S for adults?

To my knowledge 20 inch non folding frames just do not exist in the states.I am 5 feet 8 inches so for me the monkey riding a football effect would be minimized.If I could get such a bike I might just give up my big ones.

Dahon used to sell the Hammerhead, which you can still pick up with some dealers that carry prior year models. Also, there was a non folding version of the Dahon Jetstream, but I can't remember what that was called.
