Just ordered 2 of the Origami Bull models (his and hers). I'm new to the whole folding bicycle world so I had several questions regarding the bikes. I spoke with Paul Pinigis (owner) a couple of times and he was very helpful in answering my questions. I look forward to many great adventures on our bikes.

The Bull is still a great bike. One of our customers took one on the 50-mile Cap-to-Cap trail a few days ago. He averaged 11.6 mph st his relaxed pace. He had people at the finish line waiting to take test rides on it.

Hi Paul. Any chance of a Labor Day sale on this baby?

Oh man, I'm not sure. 10%-15% off maybe? And that's wishful thinking I know. That's fair I guess.

OK, here it is. I made a 15%-off coupon code that will be good through Tuesday. I couldn't figure out how to limit it to just the Bull, so it will actually work on any order over $60.00. Just put in code LDAY15 at checkout.

Enjoy! And happy Labor Day!!

Do you take PayPal? I didn't see that option for payment. Maybe make it available on eBay as well?

I am not sure why PayPal isn't working. You can email your order to me and I can invoice you through PayPal. Email Paul@Origamibicycles.com

I switched to the Chrome browser and PayPal was working. I don't know why it wasn't available in Edge. Thanks for the Labor Day sale discount code. My order is placed. Hopefully it'll ship soon, as my family and I are leaving for London by the 14th. Once again THANK YOU!!!

My Bull is scheduled to arrive today. Hopefully I can manage a short test ride this weekend, considering I had an accident last month and I'm nursing a fractured elbow (NO CAST thankfully). I can't wait to be able to give it the full test on a vacation tour ride in the next year or so. Thanks for the coupon code Pinigis !

Just placed an order on the Bull myself. After my Dahon Speed D7 failed at the pivot point, I was itching for something compact again. The Catrike Expedition is a dangerous chore getting it on and off the back of the semi truck. Once it gets to me, I'll see about riding it strict pedal first before moving the Bafang unit from my Dahon over to it. With all the elliptical time I put in, I could probably just diddle around with it un-powered.

I took a little ride yesterday evening, and I was quite impressed by the Bull's stability, ride quality, ability to absorb small bumps in the road, agility, ease of riding, and overall comfortable ride. I do need to upgrade to ergonomic grips, swap the saddle (as I always do. This is a pretty good one, but for me it's a "******** Killa"), go with larger folding pedals, and possibly switch out the steel fenders for some plastics. I also want to take it to my favorite bike shop for a tune-up. There's a few squeaks, and I'm not messing with the shifting, as I know I'll completely screw it up.

Overall though, this bike is quite noice! I may do an ebike conversion to it later on, so I can do a little bike tour here at home in the USA.

The Bull looks sharp TDS101. A belated congratulations. I've been off this forum for the past two months and noticed your post. The bike has the vibes of one costing twice what you paid. Enjoy.

Thank you sir! It's definitely priced below it's quality and specs. It's a wonderful, smooth ride. I'm waiting for some additional funds to do a few upgrades, but the $$$ won't be here until Spring, unfortunately. Still, as is, it's a solid deal.

Ha! Ha! I bet you would. But offering great bikes at entry level prices makes you a Superstar on this forum IMHO.

As much as I admire the Swift, I think the Bull is closer to my price range (please don't double it !) but I would prefer to have a front block adapter. Are you still planning on incorporating that into the next iteration, and if so, do you have a rough estimate of when those versions might arrive?

To echo others in this thread, thanks Pinigis!

Pinigis Just wanted to bump this thread in case you missed my question above about the next generation of the Bull. Thanks!
