Another Taiwanese wonder? Speedone folders

Seems this little island is a treasure trove of folding bikes. I love the look of these bikes below. Anyone ever come across them outside of Taiwan?

Lovely. I'd put a fairing on that!

Note: in addition to a rear elastomer-type suspension at the top of the seat stays, this bike uses carbon fiber chain stays (thin black chain stays) for passive suspension.

I did a search after posting and noticed your keen eye had already spotted these beauties.

I knew you would pop in to this thread somehow lol! If I went to Taiwan I'd come back bankrupt hahaha!

How could you blaspheme this wonderful bike design with a fairing lol? Time to make a folding fairing PP. Off you got to Taiwan with a new design concept lol!

PS I think you would do your Vancouver commute on this lovely filly above in 45 minutes lol!

I've been playing with Rabbit (http://software.bareknucklebrigade.c...it.applet.html) to see cadence, road speed and gearing. I'm just not sure how much time gears will shave off the travelling time when a significant portion of the route is hills. I guess there is only one way to find out!
