    Where is the folding FREE RIDE bike? Got me all excited when i read: "Free Ride" which is a form of downhill mountainbiking/ dirt jumping. A Folding FR MTB bike would be cool...altho a bit heavy.

    I am sorry for confusing you. FREE RIDE is a direct translation from its original name (自由騎) in Chinese.

    When designing a product there are always compromises. With folding bicycles the compromises seem to entail finding a balance between a bike's overall folded size, reliability and ride quality. I get the feeling that I could transport this bike to a lot of places but I would eventually end up replacing it with something with a larger fold size.
    I plan on living forever... so far so good.

    It seems that it is a single-speed machine.

    I think the gearing is going to be pathetically low.Probably practically useless.I have 14 inch wheeled folder and it is good for about 5 miles and I am still really too big for it and I'm only 5,8".

    The bike uses a jackshaft drivetrain, like the Mobiky.

    I'm amazed the manufacture isn't lurking around here to answer questions and shameless plugs.

    The Taobao page suggests a maximum load (载重量) of 100kg.

    Looking at the folding of this 'king' folder it could easily accommodate 20" wheels. The only obstacle are the pedals and if this can be changed to removable ones it can easily be redesign for 20" wheels.

    Would be cool if somebody from same language invited him. I know nothing about China but I find it likely them have as many languages as Europe have?

    Hope he knows enough English to participate here in the thread. A report from someone that can compare it with other folders would be good.

    It does reminds me of Mobiky and then it folds even smaller so it is a cute little thing.

    I don't trust it can bear my 108KG, I am too heavy most likely. Some say it is good for 100KG and others say it is only 75 Kg max. Would be sad if it is only 75.

    This is a time when I deeply regret me did not study Mandarin Chinese in School. What usage do I have of the few German words that I remember now.

    I hope somebody in Europe import it so we can get a good English description of how it feels to use it daily for some weeks or months. It does not cost much so somebody should give it a try.
