Interesting bike. The front wheel fold/catch certainly looks different to anything I have seen before.

https://www.anemos.com.cn/?portfolio=project01 I wish however that all smaller folders came with the front luggage mounting block like Brompton and now Dahon though.

Wow, I'm very impressed. That hinged fork design is brilliant.

Those guys designed this bike and founded a company to develop it.
Below is the designer's poster about details of the design. There're several pics.

I'm sorry that my English is so poor to translate such an article. But maybe google can.

hmm looks nice...
I am not a friend to fold a front fork .... simply too much danger of exploding ...lol
but the execution seems to be pretty nicely done ...

Not sure about the carbon latch in the back, that will wear soo fast that one probaly needs a ten pack for the first season...

would be interesting to compare the frame angles ... especially the bottom bracket behind theseatpost ( Tern Dahon is in front of the seatpost ) does that mean that the seatpost is way slanted backwards ?? Being most likely the weakest point in a folder this angle would increase the stress....

My question..why are the folks riding with the saddle way too low and pushing a super low cadence, mashing the gears instead of spinning.... as everybody who rides should know...

small nitpicks surely ...

For the same reason they position the pedal under their arches instead of the balls of their feet.

I am into girls so I did not even notice it was a guy. I usually don't look too closely on them
Some Classical Guitarist have long nails on their right hand but not on left? Could be less practical.
Bracelet is very popular among those rich Gang leaders? I trust them are not wanting male company?

Could we concentrate on bikes and not Gender traits? Haha when I grew up no male dared to
make use of a Womans bike. The other guys would tease that guy? It is 2013 now who cares
if a guy have long nails or not?

The carbon latch is a thing only to keep the rear ends not fold when you lift up the bike.

The seatpost angle is slanted backwards, but the designers said because of the rear suspension, the turning point won't bear too heavy.

And the way the guy in the video rides was not professional, of course, but maybe they were trying to show that the frame is solid and strong enough for mashing riding? lol
However, in our city I often see someone stands up in one's bike and mash for climbing, or just for speeding up. Maybe that's their style.

OK then... I feel safe and that I'm among friends so I guess it's OK for me to say that I bet the guy is a no good commie/pinko and probably even likes coloreds... damned queer gang-banger.

I prefer we talk bikes and not what the person using the bike may have as preferences.

And it took an extremely sarcastic and distasteful post from me to come to that realization? I still fail to see the point of your initial response that the guy had long nails and wore a bracelet.

The fold looks small in the photo until you take notice of the chainset sticking out as it does. That length must be the same as a Tern, the overall folded size the same.

Well it becomes much smaller when you remove the chainset...

ANEMOS folding bike.

Can anybody tell me what OLD you need for the rear hub?
What about the front?
I hope they didn't save on this like Brompton.

It's called a necrothread,...new people like to make a comment on these long dead threads,....then the residents like to rally around the fire. Entertaining occasionally,...
