I think the folding fuction is a factor if you fold often. I fold my bike to put in the car to get to the PCN and I am glad that my Tern can fold quite conveniently.   

The Lambo is a great deal out of the box and fast too, but the handlepost/bar dangles and the seat has to be completely detached.

Both Lamb & Java is affordable.. Can leads to upgrades also. Lmb is round $700+ basic, Java is $500-$600..

I strongly recommend JAVA FIT,  juz bought juz now in the afternoon, grey colour. So comfortable, handlebar height can be adjust to suit ur prefered comfort, it is so easy to fold incase U need to, its so 'slicky sexy looking' coz maybe i chose grey colour, gears & brakes are exceptably not bad for the price, its firm no such flexing on high speed. I wud strongly recommend to people who in doubt in getting one. If 'comfort' is ur agenda then JAVA FIT is the answer.. Cheers..

Dont buy Hachiko, dont buy Vert.. Why cant U invest ur hard earned money to something valuable & long lasting such as Java Fit or Lambo or a Tern..

Heard Hachiko is pretty terrible. I think it's better to pay slightly more on respected brands than save on cheap stuff like Aleoca and end up with crappier ride and shorter life (for the bicycle and possibly you).
