I bought this on ebay the other day. (a sniper tried to get it in the last minute but failed, but that's another thread) Jiffy, Figmo by Edge Design.
I figured it was a real unknown. Made in Taiwan and sold alot in Europe. But its specs looked so good that I had to see for myself. 21 pounds, 20" wheels, SRAM Rival components 2 x 10, Tektro caliper brakes. And a carbon fork.
Wow, what a great bike. The ride is fantastic. Fast, smooth, quiet as can be. Shifts so smoothly. Only the brakes are a little soft. Also, came with a white racing saddle but I changed that out since it was way too hard for me.
It was shipped with the wheels off and all out of adjustment, so I brought it to my LBS to tune it up and look it over. The guys were so amused with it. I was surprised by how much they liked it. They told me the components on it matched what was on their 2000 dollar racing bikes. They thought it was like putting a porche engine in a volkswagon rabbit. And they told me it was probably worth twice what I paid.
Not a great picture, but I don't have the requisite white garage door, so it's his first snapshot at the bay.
I paid 760. It was 700, but that sniper upped the price in the last minute. I thought it was worth it based on the weight and components and also based on what I know of all the other popular folders. I don't think I could touch a Bike Friday with this setup and weight for the same amount.
I have to put a good word in for the seller too. KBcyclewerks. They were awesome. I had lots of questions and they answered every one within hours of asking. And then when the bike came in pieces, I was a bit upset. I really didn't think it was going to come like that, although buyer beware right? But when I mentioned to the seller it would cost me 30 dollars to have it checked out and made ride ready, they refunded the 30 dollars through paypal instantly. Seriously nice people. And I know they have more of these.
The bike is truly awesome. It rides like a full size in that it feels stable and smooth. But it still retains the handling of the small wheels without feeling twitchy.
I've only ridden it a couple of times so far, the longest being 12 miles, so I'll have to do more of an in depth review later. But my first impression is that it was truly a great find.
I'm not that up on gearing and the technical stuff, but if you guys ask specific questions I can probably figure it out.
