Yes, we generally save them up until we have at least five and then put them on Craigslist to sell them locally. In fact, we are doing that right now. If you are interested in one, let me know.

Colors look great! Would be interesting to see one in olive green and with a front brake.
Do you ship to Canada?

The global supply chain issues have slowed us down, but we are looking at the end of May now. Yes, a front brake can be added.

I guess I missed the boat on the pre-order pricing?

Thanks for the update. I might have to look at your other offerings or something compatible locally......

Since you are a member of the Forum, I will honor the pre-order pricing. But, you will either have to come across the border to pick it up and pay $39 shipping, or about $95 shipping to Ontario (the Bull is a little more to ship to Canada than the Cobra because the box is a bigger).

Sometimes it really sucks to be tall and heavy. 6'2" and 240 lbs really limits options. Otherwise, this is a nice bike.

Wait...Pinigis I'm confused. The website lists the weight limit for this bike as 260 lbs. but above you've written 220 lbs.

Ah! We’re both in Thornhill, I wonder if we can get a deal on shipping if we both order one! The currency conversion on this might kill it though.

That's a great offer and very kind of you!
Any idea if there will be Duty and brokerage fees to ship to my door?

Pinginis....what's the cost for 2 bikes shipped to one address in Thornhill. Postal code L4j6T9 (if T.Dot is in of course)

I am....oh so tempted. I live close to Garnet CC (L4J 4Z1) - hoping those renovations are done in 2023! I am curious about the final pricing that is for sure!

Pinigis....at the risk of violating any Forum Rules, we should probably conduct future correspondence via private messaging re the bike transaction?

T.Dot....I could walk to your place in 10mins neighbour

Two bikes would just be twice the shipping cost of one.

I personally feel that this is one of the best deals for a folding bike. Disk brakes, 260lb weight limit, pretty solid specs,... Now we need it slightly beefed up (300lb weight limit, like a Zizzo Forte') w/a 350 watt rear hub motor.

Ok OK! The truth is that the frame was designed for 350 pounds. We didn't advertise this at first to leave something for the grand introduction in June. The bike will be listed for 310 pound riders with the limiting factor being the seat post. This still leaves 40 pounds for luggage.

OMG!!! I LOVE YOU!!! I'm getting one the minute I get a chance to do a little OT at work (considering I just recovered, AGAIN, from Covid) OR SELL SOME OF MY OTHER FOLDERS!!! I can't let this bike pass me by. I don't want the Zizzo OR the Dahon Hit. THIS IS WHAT I WANT!!!

PS: Sorry about the caps lok

Damn, you are very excitable. But, I agree, it's going to be a killer bike.

Don't take it literally, my wife would kill me!

I'm just stoked that a folding bike has finally been made that can handle heavier weight riders, can take me having gear with me, will be packed trail capable, has actual disk brakes, won't break the bank (considering the supply chain issues), all while being able to fold, and damn good looking to boot! This is something I'll take on vacation with me.

Well, it looks like there would be no tariff if it comes from the US. See https://www.tariffinder.ca/en/search...cle/8712000020
