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.
