    Yes it is.

    If they ever finish the light rail here and it doesn't suck I'm all about moving to the sticks where it's cheap and getting a folder - that is if I can't take a real bike on it.

    That looks like someone left a Kogswell in the dryer too long. If it wasn't $900 I probably would have one.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    It's interesting that they spec it with a Brooks. That's kind of a turn-off for the few non-leather and the many non-Brooks people out there. Also, that wood chain guard? Get the road forum weight weenies in here to have a fit!

    That said, I think it's totally sick and I would very much enjoy one.

    One of the LBS owners here (a place called Two Wheel Drive) had one. I walked in to find him soaking and heating Proofhide into the Brooks (it's a pre-softened Brooks). It's a nifty little foldup, with leather grips and all, and even sports a flip flop rear wheel, 17t freewheel/fixed.

    I'm a B rider in my local club. On a recent ride one of the A riders joined us riding this bike. It was a pretty hilly 50 mile ride on Long Island, NY and he kept passing us on the hills. It was starting to piss me off, in a nice way. To make it worse he was wearing sneakers.

    we had one in my shop as a special order, and the thing looks cool, it rides nice, but cause its a folder it feels really heavy and its really hard to skip on the smaller wheels.
