    Anyone Here Own a Breezer Zig7 or Zag8?

    I see a lot of other bikes being discussed here but not the Breezers. These two bikes seem comparable in cost and quality to the rest of the field of $400 - $700 folders. Breezer is well known for their full sized transportation bikes and the folders look like they have good reinforced non-suspension frames, quality components and a good riding position. I'm pretty sure they use a licensed Dahon latch.

    Both of the bikes are essentially re-badged Dahons. Dahon licenses their tech to other companies. REI's folding bike (Buzz Flyby?) is also a Dahon in disguise.

    The entire Breezer line of bikes are just rebadged bikes. The i3 is, I think, an Oyama. I can't recall who makes the itzy.

    they look like Dahon Speeds with additional reinforcement at the seat tube-top tube joint plus some extras, at a better cost than the Dahons, but maybe they are older models.

    The Dahon-licensed bikes tend to be slightly older models/technology. There is a company named Yeah (yeahbike.com) that only sells Dahon tech-based bikes. If you look at them, they look like older Dahons.

    I don't know what model the Breezer bikes are based off of... I never delved that far into it.

    EDIT: I said Bazooka earlier, changed to Breezer (I blame the Bazooka ad to the right)

    Dahon and the rest of the bicycle manufacturers seem to have gone the way of the motorcar business, introducing new models and styles every year. I'm not sure I see the necessity of doing that. But it does occasionally make for some good deals on last year's model.
