^^^Ran the page through Bing translator. The lightest one is 8.8kg. That's only like 1.5lbs lighter than my Mu SL. You could get it down to that weight with carbon and aluminum and keep the cost down.
You loosen those two bolts and rotate the wheel to tension the chain. The axle is offset in the hub;it's not located in the dead center. ENO makes a single speed hub like this for converting derailleur bikes with vertical dropouts. Imagine a pencil in a Spirograph(or am I dating myself?).
For instance in this pic, the axle is in the hole opposite the one the yellow arrow is pointing to. To adjust chain/belt tension you loosen the pinch bolts (as in the photo below), then insert the same allen wrench into the hole the yellow arrow is pointing to and turn the spindle to take up chain/belt slack. Once adjusted, tighten the spindle pinch bolts down.
IMHO this arrangement allowed quicker adjustments while ensuring proper rear wheel alignment.
Oops... ya snooze ya loose.

Saw this on the street in Hong Kong today -- like most bikes here I expect it's a working bike....
no labels that I could see
a Moulton/Raleigh hybrid.
follow the entire build odyssey at twentymanna's flickr account. awesome:
mikulus novotny's bike is clean, what an innovation, so different.
Unless he needed a frame to come apart in three pieces twentymanna
should have used a non-folding 20? There just seems to be 'a lot going on' there...
billions and billions...
sigh... so lovely....

I could stare at that Bike Friday for a long time.
stock with nice components and the racks are detachable (note the double downtube on this version):
although the fold is a little bit ungainly, it is probably packable:
