    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

    Ran across one of these today: a Citizen Searcher, built custom for Google (no fold). I thought they'd all been retired, but this one was sitting among the newer bikes right in the center of the Google campus.

    that pad and the big main triangle would come in handy.. shouldering the bike ..

    if your apartment is several flights of stairs above street level..

    and a small wheel bike takes up less room in a small expensive apartment ,

    such as In Singapore . Or NYC, (or SFO)

    But a folding bike of similar dimensions would take up even less space.

    If only they had a sub-forum here dedicated to such bikes...

    but the hinges add weight, and least number of grams is how you rate how good a bike is.

    Is it? I have a 22lb. Folder and a 27.5lb. Mini velo and I think the heavier one is better..........although manufacturers seem to think a few grams difference should mean hundreds of dollars.

    Now added frame rigidity, no added articulation to fail or cause play, a well supported steerer/stem, and fewer geometry compromises make a mini velo an attractive option in my opinion as a compact bike if you don't need an ultra compact fold. I love my folder too I just cant let loose on it the way I can on my mini velo.

    Those are masive rotors on those tiny wheels, what are those 200mm? I get crazy braking with my 160s on my bike, that seems out of hand. They do look cool as does the bike.

    The bike itself isn't all that fantastic (1-speed, 28 lbs) but the fully compacted fold is the smallest I've ever seen, about 10"x12"x16". It seems to be geared low enough to climb modest hills without standing on the pedals. It has a rear shock suspension with adjustable spring loading, and it can roll on tiny wheels like luggage rollers, similar to the Brompton. You can even use it as a stool when folded.

    Remember that Jet fuel is only refined Kerosene/Kerosine and as such isn't very flammable, I mean you use it in lamps!
