My interest would definitely be piqued if the weight limit could get up to 100kg or 110kg. Not sure if simply changing wheels will get you there, but do keep us posted.

It looks fine as a mini-velo. However, I don't see the point of this style of half folding bike. Seriously, why would one buy this over a Brompton?

Downtube also makes a folder with suspension.
