I’m a curious person by nature, and when the little box enclosing the Melon Slice showed up on the Bicycle Times doorstep I was interested to see what was inside. I’ve had little to no saddle time on folders, other than a short fling in Indianapolis aboard the Dahon Mu Uno from BT #2. To remedy that I built up the 20” wheeled Slice and took it home.
The small size was immediately appreciated. My basement is already full of bikes, and even unfolded the Slice took up much less space than a full size bike, leaving more rooms for piles of dirty laundry and unfinished home improvement projects.
Folded the bike easily fit into the unused space under the stairs, or the trunk of a mid-size sedan with a 16” kids bike with room to spare.
I’m putting the finishing touches on the full review for publication in Bicycle Times #5. Want some more info right now? Check out the Melon website: www.melonbicycles.com.
