Oyama Dazzle 26

You don't see a 26" full-suspension folding bike everyday.
And with a pricetag of RM1.5K a pop, the Oyama Dazzle is set to turn heads.
I managed to catch a glimpse of the bicycle at Johnny Ng's shop in Bandar Utama.
For its price, the bike's frame is pretty well-finished.
Love the locking latch design which blends in very well with the frame.

Quality, fit and finish
At the first-glance, I'd say that the Oyama Dazzle would fit the bill when it comes to budget.
If you are looking for a bike to thrash - that can be folded for transportation, this may take the cake.
The built is pretty solid, but for RM1.5K, this bike is nowhere compared to a Dahon Expresso or the higher-end Dahon Matrix.
But, hey! Its a full-suspension ride..
For the meager sum, you also get a set of mechanical disk brakes and best of all, it has a wide gear range with its multiple front chainring to tackle any terrain that you would throw at it.

With some tweaking - throw away the crappy assed rear shocks and put in a 'real' adjustable rear suspension, front fork and groupset, you will have a very decent ride.
I really dig the design and paint job on this bike!
