Helix is still in development, so it's not a bike as of yet - vaporware.

Not yet, but I already have a Sundeal Minivelo from Nashbar.. purchased on closeout for $139 with free shipping.
Sundeal's quality of frame build and componentry are well comparable with name brand bikes, just significantly lower price.
I think it's just introductory, until they either sell out the stock or establish a market share.
If the folding bike is similar in quality and componentry, it would serve a long time for my commute in Manhattan.

I picked the teal color. Should have bought your color. I'm sure it goes faster!

I did change out the seat and put on a riser stem for higher bar height.

I didn't get option to choose color, I figure the neon pink would serve as theft deterent, less desirable to get the bike stolen in NYC.
I cut down the handlebar to get it as narrows as possible, for my commute between car mirrors in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Longer stem, too.

I've received an put together the Sundeal folding bike..


Put together rather easily, top tube/reach is longer than I expected.
With all my other folding bikes, I have had to extend the reach by modifying and installing a longer stem, even with the Bike Friday Tikit.
The paint is a matt finish neon orange, which is different than the glossy powdercoat neon pink on the Sundeal Minivelo.
Some minor chain scruff from having the bike shipped folded without protection at the contact points of the frame.
Surprisingly, cheapo 140mm disc brakes calipers setup was easier than my old Hayes HMX-1 caliper; so I kept them on the bike.. see how well they perform in Manhattan traffic.

Manhattan,...eh,...I may have to make an arrangement to meet up with you one day. I'd luv to see this bike in person.
