Not bad. It appears that it adopts the folding characteristics of a Dahon and Brompton combined.

Looks great... such an obvious folding solution and yet no-one had thought of it. Chain is on the inside.
Wow, I'm in love with this bike! I've been wanting a folding bike since forever but I'm glad I waited before jumping the *** on a Dahon or Brompton. I live in Japan and this bike has taken into account everything that is needed to fit a bike into the small spaces here
I meant + the chain is on the inside (I ride a Brompton).

Very sweet looking fold.
All bikes are good bikes, the most remarkable machines. :) Mine are a Dahon Speed TR and a Brodie Once, but I wouldn't mind having "one of everything."
what's even more crazy is that on their website at the bottom they are developing a 16" wheeled version also with the same fold! that bike fold is going to be TINY! I'm pretty excited seeing new development but i have a feeling it's going to be stuck in japan only and it would be very very hard to even think of attaining one in north america. just like the other ones i've drooled over in the past that smallwheeler posts.
The fold is excellent! Too bad I'm too darn heavy.
It really is brilliant. The 3 contact points to the floor when folded are close together so it looks pretty unstable, a problem on a lurching tube train. But it rolls brilliantly. The handlepost looks like a Dahon one to me; I wonder if Dahon would license parts to a company that has designed a better fold.
It appears to have the Dahon frame hinge and front hub... presumably Dahon will buy the design as they did the Jifo. And this is basically a Jifo with a typical-style frame hinge rather than the tuck-under design and where the rear triangle shifts laterally to avoid the seat post and therefore tuck further inwards.
