Talk about an unusual folding bike

I don't know if this has been seen here or not, but I was struck by how unusual and ingenuous this folder is.

That's funny . No kidding it belongs in Whoville. But I wouldn't mind one. Talk about a head turner.

Too many of these designs forget that it's a folding bicycle;they try to make the fold innovative,but ignore the fact that you're actually going to ride it.

I agree. Reminds me of car manufacturers that design and show off concept cars. You'll never see some, if not any of them hit the streets, but they are fun, none the less, to see.
