They're admitting their bikes are as fragile as light bulbs? Not the best marketing strategy.

Heart beat

Seeing this, my heart beat did not change at all.


Therefore, not important!

Tern GSD has a lot of success in Europe. Many bike resellers not selling any Tern before started to sell this bike.


There is also the Node a folding cargo.

But even folded, it remains a big bike and there is no electric assist version of the Node



Maybe a new improved version of those ? The bulb might also mean electric assist.

Well, it's not really a folding bike. Only the handle post folds. It seems similar to the old model but with additional features like the foot platform, wheel guard, rohloff, maybe a stiffer frame. Wouldn't it be more appropriate to call it an iteration? Although I guess bike companies tend to brand their models based on the frame.

Cargo bikes are a very different market from the typical folder though....

I admit it does induce both e and cargo bike envy.

Good point ; this thread should be moved to Electric Bikes or Utility Cycling .
