The Mezzo D9 Folding Bike gets modified by Ian Alexander. Alexander is also behind the new Whyte and Marin bikes. The makeover done on the Mezzo D9 resulted to a softer look for the folding bike. It retails for £825 and will be equipped with SRAM Attack components and Shimano Tiagra drivetrain.
The main design for the Mezzo D9 is retained. Some changes were made to give it smoother lines. The main frame is now slightly curved, making it less austere than the previous D9. The stays copies the lines from some of the Whyte’s mountain bike lines.
There are new V-brakes at the rear to give better braking experience and it carries a Whyte head badge. This could also mean that Mezzo might be marketed as a sub-brand under Whyte..
The new Mezzo D9 still has a single-piece main frame with a bended stem and slightly unusual riser arrangement. It also comes in colors of graphite and blue.
