    but, not the frame, the frame hinge assembly (or, "patented folding technology" as it is euphemistically called), the folding stem and it's associated parts, or the integrated headset. but, other than that - cool bike.

    it's a very enjoyable ride. i've imagined it would be fun to "upgrade" to 349 wheels. maybe a 3 speed hub. some primo comets or other similar skinny slicks. a lighter, more efficient crankset- maybe sugino track cranks. bullhorn bars.. what do you think?
    Mine cost 50 pounds NEW. So I could have spared some upgrade cash! Thinner tyres would have helped. Very slow if the tyre pressure dropped. Agree comets or kojack and a better crank would have helped. Along with better brake pads and cables. There was a three speed available. Single speed is not optimal on a bike with a short wheelbase. It was quite light also.

    Geez... looks great. Almost looks like a Brompton on steroids in the semi-folded position!

    Same here!

    However, I think the rider (pilot?) of that rig has a goal of being hardcore tucked and aero.... that thing appears to be a straight line speed machine... check out the MASSIVE chainring and single rear cog! Salt flat racer anyone?

    needs disc wheels and sitting in a fairing, then you need the frontal area reduced,
    so the whole thing gets tossed overboard, and you start with a Low racer recumbent ..

    It's definitely a Twenty. Crazy idea. That guy is going to die.

    I'm guessing the guy got one letter wrong and it was supposed to be "Shopper"... like this.

    Those are painted Aerospoke wheels. The frame appears to be a modified Moulton maybe? I only found that pic when browsing various bike blogs, and unfortunately, I don't recall which blog.
