I was hoping to have better photos to get it on the website, but maybe I will just use these for now. I will try to have it there in a few hours.

The chain looks long, but this keeps the bottom of the derailleur higher from the ground and it works very well.

Paul, can you verify the colors? The listing for two options are black-and-red and white-and-red, but the 'red' looks orange in the pics.

There are four colors: Black with red trim, white with red trim, Orange with gray trim, and Dark Green with gray trim.

I looks even better in person. My lighting was not great, but I should have better photos from my photographer in a few days.

This bike, at this spec level and price point, looks like a smoking hot deal! Is this an introductory price?

No, We are planning to keep it at this price for as long as possible.

I know this is an old thread but I have been looking at this bike and wondered if it would be a good bike to take on a gravel walk/bike trail with gently sloping hills? I have a hybrid bike but sometimes its a hassle to hoist it onto to the bike rack, and it's not always attached to the car so I thought a folder would be a good thing to carry around with me in the trunk.

I am the owner of Origami, so my opinion is biased, but the bike does well on trails. It is not a mountain bike, but it handles dirt roads and gravel roads well. You may want to add fenders if you are headed for dirt trails (we have them in stock).

I'd recommend getting a nice set of fat Schwalbe Big Apple tires. The bumps will be so much more tolerable.
