    Disturbingly, Ming Cycle introduced a few nondescript folding bike, mini velo, and full-sized city bikes bearing "Strida" badge:

    Yikes! I saw that too.


    Here are some pics of the Pacific Booth

    Before the Event, setting things up (Pics by me)

    Day 1 More inovation per m2 than any other booth. Check out the Birdy "Nano" (frog frame with big wheels)

    Day 2 iF Mode & CarryMe Front page of the Shows program. iF Mode now has a kickstand, mudguards & rear rack, still folds "instantly".

    Day 3

    Day 4 Fans meet legendary designers (George Lin & Markus Riese)


    All in all a great show (my first bike show) I had loads of fun.

    Thanks for the pics. Lots of cool bikes.

    The Birdy with the wheelie bar looks great!

    I presume the IF-Mode is still a whopping 32 pounds without anything on it? My folder's loaded down with a front and rear rack, cover bag, lights, bell, computer, heavy Brooks saddle with old-style post, chain guard, bag, tools, pump, bottle holder, and fenders and it's 28 pounds.

    A lot more pictures here:

    http://www.mobile01.com/print.php?f=317&t=2068466&p=1

    The photos are organized by company, including some rare and local brands. Also seen are FSA's 2-speed crankset (think cheaper Schlumpf Speed Drive), folding tandem, e-bike with "Strida" badge (chain drive!), carbon Flik, SR Suntour suspension fork for small wheels, and more.

    Wow, so much to look at, saw some neat stuff. Liked some of the designs, saw one brompton knockoff. Really liked the integrated headlight tail light on the straight tube bike from "ON" I think the company was.

    Not sure, but if I find out I will let you know. Many of the people there flew from Hong Kong with their bikes for the event, maybe from there?

    @wandt you welcome! they do look cool I agree

    Thats not a very fair comparison, my de rosa racing bike is 15lbs. apples and pears.. the ifmode is designed for "normal" people not for us enthusiasts.

    If you want it to compare your folder to an iF bike compare it to the iF Reach

    25lbs gets you; front and rear suspension, 18 gears, Full size geometry (no squirrelliness here), 451 wheels, folding time 2.5 seconds full fold 3.9sec, uses wheels to rolls when folded (to me the most important factor after how it rides)
