How much does a CarryMe cost in Taiwan?

Hello

The CarryMe Ds sells for €630 VAT included over here, and I was wondering how must it costs retail in Taïwan, where its manufacturer is located.

Anybody's been to Taïwan recently or is located there and could tell us?

Thank you.

Thanks for the info. The only retailer I know who offers the CarryMe just sells the Ds, although I'd rather get the cheaper, single-speed Sd (£400 = €450).

I'm curious to know how much it can be had in Taiwan.

Incidently, I'll be in London next week. Do you know of good places where I could try the CarryMe?

Not sure about Taiwan, but the single speed goes for ¥65,100(about $775USD) here in Japan. IMO you should go for the single speed if you can find it. The higher gear on the DS doesn`t make sense to me. I rarely find myself wanting to go faster on my Carryme but do sometimes wish it had a lower gear for the hills around here.

Thanks Amuro. It looks like I'll get the Sd for about €450 from Fudge's Cyclestore in London.
