I ran across this and fell in love with it. Don't know if it's for me, comfort and ride wise. But loving the styling.

That's a great bike if you are in the market to ride as slow as possible so that you give people a show when you ride on by. I like it, but I wouldn't be comfortable with such an elongated frame.

Top 5 mountain bikes review under $150

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br-nyCY7xx8

Now I'm adding the 'Folding' Mountain Bike into the mix as well. I've had two bikes stolen from my location in the past 3 years. So, I'm not gung ho about buying something new and having another one stolen in spite of having them locked up. A folding bike will allow me to put it in house and reduce the stress of leaving it outside for thieves. I'm looking at a bunch of different brands, not just what is featured in the video. This is just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

Well that's a new one on me. Never seen a folding bike before.

Blown away by the relative cost.

There are some options on eBay that sell 26 Inch Folding Bikes, Brand New for just over a hundred bucks with free shipping. That is a steal.

The Cyclotron Bike - Revolutionary Spokeless Smart Cycle

Add the Cyclotron to the mix of bikes to check out. Read full article here. Not as expensive as you might think. Sure it's still out of my personal budget, but I was thinking this would be $5k minimum.

cool find...

Well it's definitely cooler than sh*t to look at.

But like the article mentions, I'd like to see how it handles (and weighs). Honestly it looked that guy was trying to overcome some basic challenges.

and what is up with the handlebar design. That looked completely  odd.

Lasers and a computer set LeEco's Super Bike apart

I checked the comments and it seems the price point varies from $600-$900. For what I'm seeing in the video, that MSRP is well below what I thought it would be.

a different model tailored for the North American Market? Bigger bike?

Some very cool ass features.

None of these look comfortable, but they sure interesting designs.

That walking bike (Lopifit) is something I'm actually interested in. Combines two elements I like. I checked on eBay. Nothing there. Checked on their website but can't find anything about sales. So, I'm not sure if its even out yet.

That, by far, caught my eye of all the designs.
