    Mini Velo Road Bike City Commuter MiniVelo 14SPD ($199)

    Not familiar with the bikes, but seems like a good deal for anyone looking to try a folder.

    Welp, I'm not so sure if it folds or not since I can't find a single picture of it folded

    Never seen a 20inch wheeled bike (outside of BMX) that didn't fold

    I have one. Nice bike for the price, but it does not fold.

    I love mine, lots of fun. These bikes are called mini velos (literally- mini bicycles). They are popular in Asia because they ride like a full sized bike and take up less space than one. No folding mechanisms allow them to flex less than a folder.

    Here is a thread if anyone is interested. http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...Citta-Minivelo

    Well, I can't resist a cheap thrill so have one on the way now. Rex, thanks for your info- I'd looked into these before but not much info was out there from actual owners. Especially as the Dahon Midtown lineup seems to be no more, this is appealing to me. Undoubtedly I'll be tinkering and upgrading anyhow, so just getting it for the frame is sufficient (photoshop analysis indicates these are comparable to the size-L Dahon folders). Will report more once it's on the ground.

    Excellent, it will be nice to see how you mod yours up. Please post pics and impressions.
