If it only were? ​It is.

Rose Gold's not your poison? There's Titanium too. 😎

These rigs can be built as 406|451 disc or 451 rim.

Are you sure that the 20" frame can't use 406 with rim-brakes? I'm not sure what kind of brake is being used on the frame in that photo, but, it appears that the brakeshoe is moved up to the extreme end of the brake to match the 451 rim. The fork definitely has a V-brake setup that way. Most 451 bicycles I've seen are using C-caliper brakes, which attach to a hole centered on the frame/fork.

Yeah, that second image of the Titanium color model is an old rim brake model. The new ones are 406 | 451 disc or 451 u brake.

I don't think that's the case. The QR-disc version has a separate model number from the V-brake version, both are available right now and, both probably came out at the same time (a little over a year ago, right?).

Sorry, i don't know what you are asking or telling me. What I do know is this. In my locality, rim brake 74|130mm OLD Gust 20" framesets are now rare and the ones being sold quite easily are the ones for disc brake with 100|135mm OLD. The latter do not have v-brake mounts.

Lots of topics about these FnHon Gust, Storm, Zephyr that seem very similar excepted for the wheel size.

They are supposed to be folding bikes, but no picture nor information about how they fold, their folding shape, folding size, folding reliability... !

For this Rose Gold color also found on several smartphones, I always wondered what kind of people could buy such a color, now I know
