In the UK Mezzo have been hyped as the next 'BIG' thing, in folding bikes.

They are designed by Jon Whyte, ex-formula 1 suspension designer who designs Marin bike' suspensions, and has a range of top MTBs see http://www.whytebikes.com they cost about 500 to 600 in the UK (this translates to about $900 +, but much stuff costs 1=$1 everything costs more here compared to the US ).

I am looking forward to seeing some reviews in AtoB, folding socitey and other bike mags. Has anyone here tried one yet ?

Looks like the folding bike market is getting hot !!!
