Who wants to do a group buy? Just kidding of course!!!

200 minimum order at only $38 USD each one. I'm sure there'll be some legal issues with shipping something like this into the USA.

or you can dream about these...

Clearly a manufacturer of the highest moral fiber.

Of course, but I thought it is a big eye-opener to see what kind of mark-ups companies like RM & Dahon put on their bikes, assuming of course that these prices are real.

You're assuming that the real Jetstream P8 would have the same manufacturing cost as whatever that thing is you posted. Also, regardless of the specs listed, which look to be a cut and paste from Dahon (obviously omitting their name), it clearly does not use many of the components is has listed. However, you're right that all bike companies have a significant mark-up from manufacturing to retail.
