May I know what is the ranking for Java brand?

Also, anyone knows the difference between Java fits 16s 2014 vs 2015 version?

I saw the price is quite different. $638 (2014) vs $778 (2015)
What about the parts?

I didn't state all brands la. And its not ranking. Different bikes serve different purposes.

Java would be similar to Vert.

If one really wants speed on folding bike... I will say Tyrell. Folding it would be slightly tricky.

Budget approx. 2k
leaning towards tern bikes, any specific models to recommend and easy for future parts upgrading? Is it advisable to purchase it in taiwan as i will be going there for a couple of days.
Actually what/s your purpose for getting a foldie? A foldie is normally more expensive than non folding ones with equivalent specs. If you need to fold it often for commuting, a Brompton will be hard to resist.

If its Tern, a Verge P20 or Verge X10 will be pretty good. Maybe you can get Verge X10 slightly cheaper at Khass (JB) or Taiwan.

This sort of stand works for some bikes.
Not nearly as expensive as the one used in the YouTube video.
