What does the Chinese Bike magazines say about it? We need to know what words to use in Google translate so we can find reviews from users in Bike Forums for Chinese.

I guess that I am not only impatient and curious and even nosy at that.
I mean why don't people care more about one of the smallest bikes there is?

To me that is very surprising. I find it very cute and interesting and would want to know!!!

1. Does those who buy it love it?
2. Does it ride well!
3. What kind of problems happen when one are too heavy for it.
Does it break apart and where does it break first? Unrepairable disasters?
4. Are there no interview with the poor guy? Why not? Him shy?

5 and this melody in the video. Who is the singer and the melody is ???
a famous Chinese hit song most likely? Would be cool with a link to her other productions too.

First posted 06-21-11 06:14 PM which I am very happy about. Thanks Amuro!
But now it is 10-21-11 and still no Interview with the innovator or any coverage
in VeloVision or any other Bike mag? or is it? Why does the Bike users not care
about this new bike?

Okay I maybe is very naive and a weakling to top it all but regardless if one are into
engineering or design or just need something to make the half Mile to the nearest food shop
the Free Ride is a marvelous innovation.

I love how he show the way it folds. So neat and handy. No I don't work for the Company.
I just love how it folds and that he cared to make it available. Sadly I am too heavy for it. some say it can take 100kg and others that is is more realistic with only 75 kg. Maybe the more pessimistic figure is right.

When the A-bike was new some had problem with cracks so to be pessimist
may be the right attitude.

Probably because the vendor does not do any PR in the west.

Yes that is one good answer. He maybe sell enough of them in China. A big market.
Maybe he don't talk English. I am not that good at it so I can understand that one
would hesitate to have a lot of communication with other Bike enthusiasts.

One would get flooded with emails from Brompton owners telling how much better
their bike is

I have no idea obviously. What is very obvious to me and most likely annoying
to you guys is that I am obsessed with this small Bike. Yes I where obsessed with
the Carry Me small bike too. I guess I just love small bikes. Being 1940 mm one
are too tall for most bikes? so an extraordinary small bike is kind of an interesting
challenge. Can it carry me with grace or will it break apart under my heavy weight?
How will it behave? Ride easily or do wheelies all the time?

I trust the King of Folding bikes the Free Ride does not hold for too long if I handle it?

Still I long for to know. Did he ever managed to sell all the bikes that he made.
Was it a success. Does he feel satisfied having accomplish it? I guess me envy him.

A year flies bye too fast. So did it sell in China.
Did he ever sell any of his prototypes to Europe or USA?
I feel for this guy. But I don't know Mandarin and although
I have the money to buy one just for fun I have no real need for it.

And I weight too much for it to keep together under my too heavy body

So are there somebody good at searching in Mandarin that can check up
on what did happen? Did he gave up on biking and make Walkers or something?

This thing's popped up on ebay again, would want to get some feedback from a user on build quality or see it in person. With that many moving parts, poor construction would lead to early self destruction. Interesting design. I'd take a gamble if it was half the price.

It is very cool and that's the size I need for travel but I am about 5% too heavy for it. I'd love to have something like that though.

Thanks for the link to that Ebay seller. Good that they describe it that well.
What I lack is references to the bikes sold during the year that has gone bye.

What did users like best and what kind of problems surfaced?
I can afford to pay that price but I trust that Swedish Custom
put a lot of VAT and Toll and other such prices on it so it get
double price when it arrive at my door. So I would want to know more first.

I weight about 95 to 100 kG so it am at the upper limit and I am too tall for it too.
My knee maybe will hit the steering bar too often for safety.

What I really love about it is that one can sit on when folded. Almost none
of the most known folders have that feature. Not much of a bike for long travel
but I only have to go to the Bus or Train or Subway/Underground or the Shopping Mall
so half a mile at most.

Why I don't walk that half mile? Knee hurts too much.
