Its very interesting to see how the word "rinko" has taken on a new meaning in English that isn't present in Japanese. Not that there's anything wrong with that though

In Japanese, "rinko" is an activity. One that can be done with any bike, thought a folding bike certainty makes it easier.

That Montague for $200 is a great find. I would have snapped it up too!

Great video in Japanese on "rinko" here (should be easy enough to grasp whats going on from the visuals).
