Can anyone identify or provide any info about the make, model, etc. of this folding red bike, with a 20-inch rear smaller front wheel?

    I'm just curious, why do we keep getting this same question all the time? – ojs Sep 2 '17 at 18:39

    Pro tip: "Related" on top right. But I'm honestly curious, why do people all of sudden find a bunch of unclear photos of generic bargain bin bikes and ask for details about them? – ojs Sep 2 '17 at 21:33

    I think @ojs was asking not about your questions (thanks for taking the time to improve this, by the way!) but about the general trend at the moment. We're getting a lot of people asking, "Here's a photo of a bike -- what is it?" and, honestly, it's not clear what the point is. Is it just curiosity or would it actually make a real difference to something if somebody said, "That's a Wonderbike Speedfold 6400"? – David Richerby Sep 2 '17 at 22:16

    Unrelated to identification - it looks kinda fun to ride, in a sit-back and cruise way. And knowing the brand name won't change how it rides in the slightest. So if you like it, ride it. If you don't like it, then pass the bike on to someone else who will enjoy it. – Criggie Sep 3 '17 at 7:03

Partial answer - you are looking at a frame design known as "crank forward" or "semi-recumbent"

The backreset is an integral part of the "seat" because the rider pushes against the backrest to power the pedal, and cannot raise themselves off the saddle and onto their pedals. The rear suspension makes it a bit more comfortable given you can't unweight for bumps.

I'm going to hazard a guess that its an asian-source bike, and probably aimed at the elderly.

  • Note those folding pedals are incredibly bendy, and you cannot put more than ~50-100 watts through them without rising breakage. – Criggie Sep 3 '17 at 6:31
  • "Aok1" branded brake lever appear to be a knock off for "AOKI" brand, which is a fairly budget brand in the first place. That's not going to help with identification. The writing on the cranks is useless too, sorry. – Criggie Sep 3 '17 at 6:58
