Jango 16" folding bikes?

Hello

Does someone know who makes the Jango 16" inchers?

Also, I'm not sure how the different models differ:

Jango V9

Jango T8
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=46109


Jango V8
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=46111


Jango T9
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=74166

Jango V8i
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=46112

Thank you.

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:

Quote:
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.
