    Is this bike a custom build? Got any more info about it?

    The mid drive to boost the gearing is a pretty sweet idea.

    Reminds me of a carryme. Could be ace in many circumstances. Like the idea of a capsero. Do you have the weight.
    I think dahon should look at the wheel axle bolts interlocking design

    Shame they're not available here. I'd swap the skinny tires for some 1.35" Kojaks.

    Found this by accident, when I followed a link to an electric bike forum. I think it's awesome(without the motor stuff). Kind of the idea I had in mind when building my mini-velos... This one tops out over 40mph
