Giant MR4, MR20 ?

I've always liked the look of the Giant MR-4 and MR-20.

Has anyone ridden either of them? Is the MR-20 discontinued?

Only thing sort of similar that I know of are the Airnimals and a very teeny bit like Moulton. Any other manufacturers make bikes like the MR4 or MR20?

I know it's an old thread, but I'm curious how they ride as well. One is for sale here and it looks like it would be a fun bike. 24in wheels, 105 group and rear shock. Looks like it was a Japan only bike, I can't find out much in english about them.

Which one is for sale in your area: the MR4 or MR20?

Hopefully it's not too far from where you live and you can go see and test ride it.

MR4. Been for sale for awhile, the price is dropped to $300. Seller claims it was $1400 new.

It looks too small for a 5'10 person. Looks like there would even be toe overlap. Or maybe that's just an optical illusion due to 24" wheels.
