    Know nothing about those. so Neither ..

    Want several sizes, drive train and component choices? customer service: Bike Friday Tikit .
    or if small fold needed, classic design, also service after the sale? Brompton.

    Where are they made ?

    from my point of view, it's really down to aesthetics and weight. the "Line" is sleeker looking, but noticeably heavier. the "Wave" has a retro sort of look, but it's grown on me since i first saw this bike last year. also, it looks awesome in black...

    it's not generally recommended, so why should it be recommended? generally speaking, i mean.

    if we only went by general recommendations of this board, we would all be riding dahons, terns, bromtpons, and bike fridays. boring, ultimately..

    Was it somehow difficult to view that information before smallwheeler plastered it here?

    This thread smells fishy to me.
    I have the heart of a young boy. I got it on eBay.

    now that i've had time to think about it, i think you should definitely get the Wave. it folds better. it looks cooler, it's lighter, AND it seems to inspire laughter and a sense of vandalism in the user:

    is there a troll in the room?

    I am suspious about the OP being connected to bigfish, but anyway.

    You have not stated what you wan the bike for. The choice seems mainly cosmetic so you decide what you can decide which you like the look of?

    Personally if I wanted something different I would go for the even faster folding , and much more compact diblasi R22 instead.

    I like the style of the Wave better. Neither of them would get my nod if I was deciding on a new folding bike, but if these were the only two choices, I'd go with with the more interesting design, visually.

    Form over function.

    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.
