Maybe: it depends of what is shipped !?

Look at what happens with the Vellobike+: the project was also delayed but they now eventually ship bikes (not yet the titanium frame version for which there is still no shipment date).

The problem is that these bikes are not what was promised.

First, the bikes is much heavier than promised, 2kg more with a bike equipped about 500g lighter Kojak tires than the originally announced Marathon.

The weight was one of the most important selling argument.

But the comparison of the pictures of the kickstarter campaign with the pictures of the shipped bikes show that the bike doesn't fold as compact as promised (look at the length of the rear triangle = distance crank-rear wheel axle)
