Not rare at my house. I have two different models. The earlier with 14" front and 16" rear wheels and a later one with 16" front and 20" rear wheels. For what its worth these are the worst riding bikes I have ever owned. The later rides slightly better than the early one. Roger

I've got an early basic single speed version. They do actually have two good points: They are light and they fold down to a compact size.

As others have said, they don't ride well. A wet noodle has less flex and the brakes in the wet are almost non-existant.
