Thoughts on Origami bikes?

Hello, Iím new to the cycling world and am thinking of getting a foldable bike. Iíve researched and was gonna get a zizzo liberte as it was in my potential budget but right when I had enough to get one they increased the price and took it off of other retailers :/

Has anyone had any experience with Origami bikes? Iím stuck between the Eagle and Hawk and Iíll mainly be using it to commute and ride around for fun

Right forum wrong subforum... though commuting was a reasonable guess, it's no problem. There's a folding bikes sub right here for you.
https://www.bikeforums.net/folding-bikes/
with a few origami threads on the first page
https://www.bikeforums.net/folding-b...gami-bull.html
https://www.bikeforums.net/folding-b...ami-lotus.html
https://www.bikeforums.net/folding-b...n-classic.html

poking around I see that the owner of Origami, Paul Pinigis posts in that forum. So maybe you could ask him what he thinks Pinigis

No worries!

The owner (Piningis) is a member of the forum.

fwiw, I might recommend waiting a few months as they relaunch the Xootr Swift.

I'm looking forward to see what you chose for component standards and braze-ons. You certainly had people here asking for every conceivable alternative!
