I recently bought a black ORI M9 (see http://www.oribikes.com/ori/products...0&cID=1&Key=3#, but I got the previous version with Calliper brakes on both wheels because it was cheaper)
Usage is for a combined commute:
Bike 7 km house to station - Train for 20 minutes - bike 2.5 km from train station to office. (reverse for the evening return trip)
(If I'm lazy I can use my local station just 0.5 km away, but then I have to change trains in the middle.)
This folder replaces my beater bike at the station.
I did a small test-drive on three bikes at the shop (folding bike specialist : http://www.kemperfietsen.nl/)
(6 speed Brompton, Ori M9, Birdy World)
Reasons for choosing the Ori:
- Value for money.
- Good ride quality
- folds easy and small enough.
I also ordered the Commuter bag ( http://www.oribikes.com/ori/products...2&cID=2&Key=19 )
