Yeah #2 is a slick looking frame! I agree.
I am personally stuck between #2 and # 4
Both by the same company!
My only aprehension with these two frame styles is they both have the same design, which doesn't appear to be the strongest engineering.
What do you think about the frame strength of these styles, they obviously differ from the typical bicycle design?
I would like one that allowed full size road bike riding position, but with small wheels. Anything like that exist?
#2, the Globe looks good. But, I see a problem. I don't think I would be able to get the handlebar as low as I would like it. Is there another model in their lineup?
This is the closest I can find in Korea. Even their 26" wheel frames make it hard for anyone over 5'7" to get full leg extension. I am going to get a over length seat post and see what I can do!

Of course most casual riders here have their seat so low, they knock their knees into their chin!
If anyone is interested here is the websites of the manufacturer. You can see what else is in their lineup.
# 1 and # 2 http://www.samchuly.co.kr/english/pr...age=3&ti=&key=
# 3 and # 4 http://www.dmbike.co.kr/
Lots of 20 in bikes from Kuwahara, but I don't think they're exported. http://www.rintendo.com/Products/Sma.../gaap-lite.htm
I like the tourer-porteur, #3.
That Gaap lite bike is possibly the UGLIEST looking bike this side of a Pederson. I LIKE IT!!!! although I don't like suspension.
It reminds me of the giraffe rabbit thing, from the movie "The Dark Crystal"
It looks like it might be hard to get the bars lower than the saddle depending on your height. Seems like the head tube is longer and higher than necessary. It might or might not be a good fit depending on the individual. Has anyone who rides a 54 cm road bike tried one of these and care to comment.
