You are a week early. Next scheduled Helix update is Friday the 16th.

People here act like the Burke is out there in reasonable supply. Is anyone here a Burke owner? Seems expensive for what it appears to be, so I expect Burke has not sold very many yet. Maybe I missed some posts, but I haven't seen anyone here post an "I just bought a Burke 20" or anything similar.

My Ti Swift may not have the smallest fold, but it rides great and really does exist. A quick look today shows the framesets for sale at $1200 USD which is a bit less than the Burke. I think Helix may not profit on the bikes they produce this year, but I don't think they will cost Helix anything close to $4000 to build.
