As mini as it gets…

While I was searching for a particular steel frame fitting that is apparently only available in Japan nowadays, I came across this mini velo…and I do mean mini.

As easy as it would be to just dismiss this item as a silly fad, you can tell the guy takes this thing pretty seriously. Still, I’m not sure how much I’d want to ride the bike on sidewalks that aren’t handicap-accessible since a curb would surely cause a faceplant.

I think that’s a folding bike and is similar to the Strida, which also suffers from “really small wheels.” Looks like there’s a hinge on the steering mast.

yeah, it’s a folding bike, but it’s totally different from the Strida.  And these wheels are much smaller too.

Looks a bit like a mash-up of a Go-Ped and a bike. Apparently its owner has better quality roads in his area than I do. 100% insane. I’ll bet it folds down smaller than anything out there.
