I think the fact that they market it as a folding bike shows the mass market never embraced the design. Does it work, yes. Is it as good as a conventional bike. Maybe not, depends on what you want to use it for and how you intend to use it.

Mel; Thanks for the reply. I need a folder for sure. In the past I've owned a bike friday pocket rocket and recently an airnimal chameleon. I've found both to be good bikes but had some problems. I was just wodering if there are too many compromises with the slingshot. I don't particularly need a compact fold down. I also like the suspension with the airnimal and was thinking the slingshot could have a compliant ride. I don't race and just ride for exercise.
