I'm super excited because some brilliant guys I know have finally released a kickstarter for a new type of folding bike they've been developing on and off again for the past three years :)
It's kind of niche, and definitely not for everyone. But it's wonderfully designed, affordable, and solves the "last mile problem" quite well. I could see it being best for Metra uses who currently use Divvy during rush hour, and who are tired of full/empty docks, or for people who work in areas where leaving your bike locked up outside would result in theft. I think it's better than a few other sanding bikes I have seen (Halfbike, and some other one) because the gearing is so high; you can be quite zippy with just a walking cadence.
Anyway, it's neat, eh?
Does this look like it's going anywhere?
