Its been along time i want to get myself an ultra small wheel folding bike that is easy to fold and looks innovative. I have scale down my choices to Strida and Mobiky, and eventually selecting the Mobiky because i just love the way it folds and looks.
I have always been admired by the design and engineering work put into this bike, and looking at his bike certainly gave me that feeling i am owning a piece of hi tech equipment. Since i want to add in abit of speciality to distingiush this is my unique bike, so i started to search some possible upgrade items aroun the globe for a slight modification.
The bike itself...from my point of view is fairly ridgid. I read some of the old posting here saying its floppy, but i dont find such case on my bike perhaps its still new. The speed is not too slow with the internal 3 speed Shimano Nexus hub,the bike can be easily cruising at approx 20-25km/h with not much effort. I in particular love the fat tire which provide a the fucntion of suspension, and the brake disc itself can stop the bike in quite a short distance. The folding mechnism is very smart, i can fold the bike into the stand up position in 3 sec and start pushing it around like a trolley. The bike is heavy as everyone can expect, and i am quite certain that the design of the bike is heading for the solution of "FOLD + PUSH" rather than "FOLD + CARRY". I have tried Dahon and KHS as a fold bike, but this gave me the highest pleasure when riding it, i love it!
So here is the finished porduct, perhaps this can be a good chance for people who are interest to get one and have a more detail look .....
