    Jur,

    The issue is not whether or not the Helix is a viable concept.....most think it is. The question to fund or not fund is a question of risk/reward. The retail price is slated at $1400 which is...

    I agree with mconlonx it seems like a screaming good deal. I just have a hard time evaluating the risk/reward of campaigns....ironically I will be running one myself soon.

    Thanks,

    Not sure...they are decent. I guess close to 1k a little bit under...but this would be for an established brand, which this campaign does not have.

    Thanks,

    With the Ti frame your looking north of 2k.


    I imagine so, since you are funding a campaign....you are not buying a bike ( that is a perk if it works out ).

    Thanks,

    I would look at a Bafang mid drive motor. They seem to be taking over the electric market because of price and features.

    Nylon soles are key. Carbon soles are too stiff and uncomfortable on long rides....they make my feet go numb.

    Two options are good only if you can get your choice when you want it. These never worked for me....I had issues getting the proper side up.

    I was focusing on the first picture on their website. I thought the fold required short cranks, looking again I see I was incorrect. Now I am confused...why spec 165mm cranks?

    Look at the photo of the bike folded, I don't see much room for anything longer.

    I think 165mm cranks are required for the compact fold. I like this bike alot, however it's weaknesses seem to be the cranks and fork.

    FYI I have never seen a folding bike without weak points.

    Shrooms,

    I did not say that. I said it does not make sense to risk $1200 to only save $200, hence I would wait for the product to come to market to minimize risk. I hope he delivers....seems like...

    I would recommend an angle adjustable stem, that way you can just experiment, without thinking too hard.

    Great question. The answer is different depending on the bike. On kids bikes and folding bikes it is normally an easy job to flip the stem, because the cables have extra length. However on most...
