    I think the Xootr/HPM Swift is probably a better design for what this particular bike is trying to do. I was commenting mostly on the fold... which doesn't seem to be doing much for the bike. If...

    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.

    That said, I've always liked the Jetstream. If I was getting a Dahon, that would be it.

    Not to throw a wrench into the Tikit vs NWT thing... but I thought the Bike Friday Silk was essentially their attempt to make a 20" commuter folding bike? Sort of a best of both worlds.

    I disagree. I've shopped for groceries on a Tikit. Is it the best grocery shopping experience I've ever had? No, but it was not that different than the video. The only time it was more difficult...

    If money weren't an issue, I would recommend a Bike Friday Tikit (which is what I have at 240 lbs), but since it is... check out Dahon and Tern. Both have bikes with max rider weight around 230 lbs.

    Looks like a typical cheap, Chinese folding bike. My guess at value... $50. I mean, you can buy a new cheap, Chinese folder for less than $200.

    I would say... ride the bike as is for a while until you figure what (if anything) you actually need to change.

    Congrats on the new bike!
