Lots of good info here Caterpillar. Thanks for sharing.
You seem to be someone who has followed extensively the folding bike market. Basing on your post, I can't help but think you must be involved in the industry somehow. Either that or you are extremely passionate about folding bikes.
Anyway, it's great that the Philippines seem to have a booming folding bike market albeit the lower end of the spectrum. Bike Friday, Moulton, Mezzo/Ori and several other well-known folding bike brands are not available here. I'm actually surprised to find out someone is bringing in Birdy and Pacific Cycle IF Mode here. What do you think is accounting for this trend?
Also, I think we are way off topic here. Perhaps you can open a new thread about this so as to avoid being OT? I find your insights very interesting. I'm sure other find it fascinating as well.
