The Amiiva really impressed me! What a nice looking bike and the quality suspension shock should make this a plush ride. I suspect this is a $900.00 USD dollar bicycle because they had only quality components on it from the specs. The size of the fold is about the size of a Dahon but not too bad.

Very nice overall.

I like the BikeFish even though it's a large fold. The geometry looks strange but not bad overall. It should work but have you noticed the 5 speed being used instead of the Nexus, Sram or Sturmey 8?? I though the 5 speed was almost as much as the 8 speed?

Yes, the Amiiva looks the business. Those hinges look excellently constructed... and it does have good components. I'm going to say, though, that it will be more than $1K. It's built in France, after all.

The BikeFish has a large fold, but it's not wider than the frame itself which means it's pretty thin and can probably it in some nooks and crannies that other folders can't. I'm not so sure about the geometry, but the bike is beginning to grow on me
