Pacific Cycles IF Move. Any thoughts?
 
About to buy another folding bike to compliment my Brompton. Just wondering if anyone has an opinion or first impressions of the IF Move?
Pacific Cycles doesn't seem to send their stuff to cycle-centric publications for objective and detailed reviews. I wanted to buy an IF Mode two years ago but could never find enough info about it to make the fairly large purchase (apart from someone in a forum saying that the decals and paint came off way too easily).
Being in Australia, I would have to go to Singapore to actually test it.

If I was going to spend that much on a folder I would buy a custom built Bike Friday made to fit me not adapted to fit me. Roger

Not as expensive as the IF Mode, but yes expensive still.

At 178cm and 80kg, I don't need such a custom fit. As much as I like how Bike Friday operates as a business and their wide range of bikes and options, I am not enamoured by the fold (unless it's the Tikit but I'm looking for 20'' specifically). But if I suddenly started to do a lot of long-distance rides I would definitely consider BF.

Loves me some machine translation. Read more like poetry but there is some detailed photos of the fold. May just have to wait to drop by Velo Bikes in Singapore come August and give it a go.
