Ok, those models below 1k looks reasonable.

but usu only 3 speed n crank smaller (46T), if flat road ok, up slope a bit 'siong'

Are you looking for a light, compact bike with no compromises? Do you want to take your bike with you everywhere?
At just 8.9 kg, the fully-aluminium TILT 500 XS is just what you need!

Looks tasty. If it's cheap, it's perfect for a keep-in-boot all-time folder or a cheap runaround for a fraction of the price of a Brompton.

Not really cheap, but cheaper ($1.2-1.4k on carousell now) than a Brompton. Too bad I didn't get a 3Sixty when it was going for only $500+ pre-covid. Would had made a decent "beater brompton".

But Brompton is currently sold out worldwide though. Now 2nd hand used Brompton is selling for more than the retail price.

Damn wasted in mar I wanted to buy Brompton and there was still alot of stock. But the colour I wanted is sold out so in the end I never buy :(

IKR. I wanted to get a S2E raw lacquer, but no luck getting that from the junction. Last I heard, they only bring in the standard colours, anything else is mostly OOS. Oh well, will wait for things to become better. Might as well save up for a superlight too :s13:

How much you pay for this Brompton clone? and also the delivery duration? Thanks.

I paid 1.2K. $20 for delivery to my doorstep. Took about 2 weeks +.

Ynhon 8.4kg good anot :o

Ynhon sounds like the chiong version of Fnhon which itself is a chiong version of Dahon :s13::s22:

I actually owned a 3Sixty... for about 1 week, because I didn't like the ride quality. Its overgeared and the geometry mirrors the older Bromptons with the shorter wheelbase. The fat frame tube also makes it look like a toy. Didn't liked the stock tyres, pedals, kiddie ez-wheels too. Granted, I can change them but then I saw Element Pikes Gen 2 and just decide to cut my "losses" (actually made $50 from the sale lol).

The upcoming and updated 3Sixty however, looks really promising. Also mybikeshop is a distributor now, so there's a place for servicing too.

The 3sixty you bought was the 2019 or 2020 version? How's the ride quality comparing between pike gen 2 and 3sixty?

I am thinking between the 2, and 3sixty seems to have been around much longer than pikes with 2020 being the 9th iteration compared to the 2nd iteration for pikes. Pikes seem to fold smaller into a smaller width than even Brompton, so I'm not sure if it's cos the bike is smaller? 3sixty folded size is bigger than Brompton, so that's a negative for 3sixty....

The 3sixty I had was probably a 2018/19 model (not sure, it was a lightly used one). Imo, the pikes gen 2 is a better ride. 6 speed (3 internal, 2 external), longer wheelbase so more stable (looks better too) and shifters are the same design as the latest Brompton's. I have zero regrets ditching the 3sixty for the gen 2 pikes.

However, the upcoming 3Sixty looks to have an updated geometry and seems to be an improvement over the older ones. I believe it's still 3 speed though.

which is the upcoming one you are referring to?
Taobao got a couple of shops selling 3sixty, which has 3 & 5 speed sturmey archer internal gearing option + 2 external gear option to make it 6 & 10 speed, can also top up to get schwalbe one tanwalls installed...
