it is cool .... but why the staggered front wheels.... to me it would make more sense to have them paralell to eachother with two bskets on top of eachother....and than the possibility to take baskets out and fold the bike smaller ....
how does this black thing turn all of the sudden 90 degrees ?

clueless thor
but its sooooo pretty

Intriguing, but somewhat limited. My Brompton can do the shopping cart thing too (albeit not overly stable) in a partially folding state, and folds down further for easy storage and transportation.

Its a computer animation, photoshopped into a picture, folks (ala#4)
have used the shopping bag on Bromptons
with the handle mast left up, as a trolley , but front wheel is askew when the rear rack [with easy-wheel set (ball bearing)] is under the main frame.
and as noted, the base width is narrow.
perhaps better to put the folder in the under level the store's shopping trolley ,
then unfolding it when you have checked out ..
