Yeah, but you might not. That's the uncertainty with buying unseen. Unless you can find somebody with the same bike to report on, you won't know how good/bad it is.
Where you will get good backup is with the major importers in case anything does go wrong. Downtube Nova (US) looks great at the price, any of the Dahons, or a used upmarket folder. There's a lot of choice just above the level of the lowest price supermarket tensile steel imports. Shopping around for close-outs on last year or 2008 models is a great way to save cash too.
