I'm new to folders and in the market for one. I came across this Mec bike. It's a bit expensive for the spec. It looks like a Tern/Dahon. It even claims to use Tern parts and manufactured by Tern. What I find galling is their claim:
MEC bikes are designed in Canada. Everything from the frames, to the graphics was developed at the MEC Head Office in Vancouver, BC.
So if I use Tern parts and assemble a new bike, I can say "developed by MEC"? Is this a rebrand? Is this really worth $650.
