Dahon will unveil the new IOS line of folding bikes at Eurobike in a couple weeks.  The new line takes everything they know about making folding bicycles and shrinks it, strengthens it and adds integrated electronics to power built-in lights and charge your phone, GPS or whatever.

The IOS takes advantage of hydroformed aluminum tubing to provide a full-size bike that’s as sturdy as a traditional commuter, but folds down to the size of a 20″ wheel.  The stem (patented) is adjustable, giving you the option of riding upright or in a more speedy, performance-oriented position.  Borrowing from our idea (actually, they thought of it first…which makes us look lame), the seatpost has an integrated pump.  The integrated headlamp and charger are powered by a hub dynamo, which can power most small consumer electronics.  Pricing will be €999 to 1,499, available everywhere in 2010.

It may folds down to the size of a 20″ wheel, but it’s a 24″ wheel bike. See http://www.dahon.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=7392
