Designed by former F1 engineer Jon Whyte. Bike is in really good condition for its age, usual marks from folding and going on the train etc. There was a scratch to the main frame which has been touched up see photo 9.
Tyres recently replaced, along with all new cables and full service. This has the Shimano Nexus 8 speed rear hub, so plenty of gear choice and also no rear derailleur to get damaged like on the Mezzo. Folds really easily and quickly, lightweight design. In my opinion better than a Brompton and also cheaper. Also included is a brand new spare tube, just in case you get a puncture and some of the original bits taken off the bike when it has been upgraded (brake levers, seat post clamp, front wheel skewer etc).The Ori Mi8 is a fast folder in every sense. This may not suit everyone, if you are looking for something with a little more bouncy comfort then perhaps a Birdy or Brompton may be more appropriate, but for those that enjoy riding a little quicker the rigid framed nature of the bike will undoubtedly appeal.
This is complemented by a great specification with quality key components from Shimano. The fold is perhaps not as instantly intuitive as some other folders but once familiar it is just as quick and actually quite ingenious, making the folded size competitively small and well suited to taking on public transport or being stashed in a boot, cupboard or locker. What set's this bike apart from many other folders, and indeed what puts in in direct competition as an alternative to a Brompton is the consideration that has been applied to the luggage option which are available. The integral rear rack has been designed to accommodate a choice of bespoke bags, so whether you require something small and compact to carry a few everyday ride essentials, or something more suited to be used as an office bag the options are there.The bag is custom made to slide and lock firmly on the ORi rack with a strong Velcro strap for added security. Padded internal divisions with separate padded laptop pocket. Padded handles and fully adjustable padded shoulder strap for maximum comfort. The item "Ori (Mezzo) Mi8 Folding Bike 16 Wheels Incl.
