Thanks Graham. Had just spotted the French version, and have it booked marked now - all grist to the mill. The extra wheelbase must give a pretty smooth ride, the R20 that I ride over here has fat tyres so that helps a lot. The wheels are converted to 406's, and with the fat tyres give almost the same overall diameter as the original 451's, so the in built kick stand works just fine. Does it have proprietary BB threads as per Raleigh, or did they bow to the standards?

Is there room in the market for a modern 20" non folding shopper? It could be really lightweight, clean running bike with flatpack bars, ideal for students or storage in a hallway. There are plenty of folder options that add weight and reduce strength.
I have on an orbea Katu 20

Rides really well hydraulic brakes, 8 speed hub gear and Dynamo lights it sis the real package not tried it with serious weight but if it is anything like the brompton it will be great. Rock steady at the 27mph top speed too.

Neither. The frame has no threads, however it has a Baylis Wiley BB that incorporates a sleeve that is threaded 24 tpi. I suppose it's a sort of early threadless BB. The sleeve is theoretically removable however seems to stick in, which is no problem when using a cartridge.
