Its soo cute

Re: Dual 20" on RANS Designs Inc Facebook page eh

Nothing wrong with white, but I really hope they offer it in a more vibrant color!

Those are Big Apple tires in the photo. (The tread is visible in the diagonal shot.) But the spec page says Primo Comets.

The spec says the bike length is 41 inches "packed" which is similar to the wheelbase. I don't see any folding points on the frame. Is the bike packed by removing the wheels?

I'm guessing the frame geometry is similar to the Dynamik?

The gear inch range in the spec looks wrong. The numbers in the spec look like what you would get with a wide-ish 26" tire. With a 46T chainring and 11-32 sprockets on a 20" tire, the range should be more like 27 to 78. That's pretty close to the middle chainring on a Dynamik.

Randy told me in a recent chat it's an Alterra geometry.

Randy/Nana- any updates after interbike? was wondering if it will be offered in other colors and pricing.
