ZGL Mantis folding bike



This rather unusual bicycle is a ZGL Mantis folding bike. ZGL is the brand of the Lianyungang Eagle Carbon Fiber Bike Company, a Chinese company that, as the name implies, specializes in carbon fiber bicycles.  It has 12" wheels, single-speed, front and rear V-brakes, folding pedals, and since it features a carbon fiber frame, weighs in at a fairly light 6.8kg (15lbs).  Introduced in 2013 it apparently wasn't a big success since it disappeared from the company's catalog fairly quickly.
