Trump's duty ( which was just removed temporarily ) makes this unsustainable. Especially since Costco's return rate will be positive, I expect it to be super high.

This is a really bad market, everyone is having a hard time. These type of deals can be seen as liquidation. This will put pressure on Citizen and other entry level competitors.

Sounds to me like Zizzo hit the lottery by partnering with Costco...This deal will undoubtedly mean accelerated growth and brand awareness for Zizzo bikes.

This could as they say really put them on the map. And be good for the folding bike market in general.

As a longtime EuroMini/Zizzo owner I can vouch for the quality and dont believe Costco will experience high return rates on these bikes.
