Thanks to all for the compliments and for watching. My apologies is the videos look and sound amateurish. They are. I've only recently started doing them, and don't want top spend a lot of time in post production.

I like some Dahons too (MU, Boardwalk, the 'shark' bikes), but i cannot resist these inexpensive frames. Visually and to the touch they look great, and well-made. Nothing says 'bad news, stay away'. Durability over the long-haul? Well...we'll see, but hey, $150 for a nice frameset, I'll take a chance. I bought a Litepro Velocity, so I'll be documenting the build here in coming weeks...

Thor's got Lockjaws, I think...

Thumbs up

That's very nice video clip Abu.
I'm recently started into the foldies world (age matters) and browsing to this forums not realising I have an old inactive account here.
I saw you have an array of experience with foldies and small wheel bikes which I could refer to. Where are you actually based in?
How is the pricing of folding bikes (and the spare parts/component) and the completeness relatively compared between Jakarta, Bangkok, Singapore and KL.?
Thanks for sharing..

hi, i am based in Bali, Indonesia. I'd say pricing on things can be rather uniform. There are exceptions, of course. Happy to answer specific questions...
