    They look like a blast, particularly the front suspension models, and from pics they seem superbly engineered. But the fold? Erm. I'm going to sound like a broken record but if you had that sort of engineering and suspension design combined with a Brompton-style fold, then you'd really have a product. With this fold. . . well, they probably ride very nicely. Somehow I'm not surprised that they have surplus stock to get rid of, but at those discounted prices it may be worth it.

    I haven't seen the Jango up close , but looks like an interesting bike. Appears model designations are for a T or V shaped handlebar, and gearing choices. Some models also have V-Brakes or Disc Brakes

    Also looks like the '8' models have a rigid fork and the '9' models a suspension fork.

    Thanks guys for the infos. I found more infos on that brand:

    Two years we noticed that Mercedes were selling a cute folding bike. Now it's resurfaced again. Though this time by the name of Jango Flik.

    A product of the Topeak design studio, -- they of the Bikamper tent and Chainbot -- the Jango Flik will be available in five models, which are mostly variations of a T or V shaped handlebar set; rigid or suspended front forks; and eight or nine speed gearing. Pricing is said to range between $1,199 and $1,599 USD. and we understand they'll be readily available in 2010, after having currently loitered about on the bike trade show circuit.
