Not strictly a mini velo, but smaller than your typical road bike (22" wheels). It's fun to ride, light and manoeuvrable.

Issues you might run into are gearing (smaller wheels = lower gearing) so don't expect to be able to go as fast as a bike with bigger wheels. Then there's ground clearance, my pedals and crank arms have plenty of scrapes either from riding too close to curbs or not lifting the pedal enough whilst cornering.

What's the advantage of a mini Vélo vs à folding bike ? Aside from stiffness and geometry maybe ? Then again nothing stops a folding bike from being well designed with good geometry.

I suppose it could be viewed as a half assed compromise between the two. A shopkeeper who might object to a full size bike in the aisles might not say anything if it's a mini velo. Or on a moderately full train, where a regular bike would be a no-go, it might work with a minivelo.

Plus a mini velo can be made at a lower cost than a folder, since it's less complex.

is mini velo a brand name or just a style? what does it refer to specifically, just any bike with small wheels? I've seen bikes like the one in OP before, look like a lot of fun to fuck around on.

They're stiffer, lighter, and the make particularly good front loading delivery bikes because of the small front wheel.

They also make a 5'2" manlet feel like a 6'8" master race

Why would it? It's possible to get the fit to be the same as a full size bike.

it's a style, they have small wheels/wheelbase but handle similar to conventional frame geometry

I'm British, I believe the bike is a Peugeot so French. The tyre width is in decimal and not fractional inches which I think is more of a European thing, however it's not a French size (closest would be 500A). It's also the same size as some wheelchairs, probably the only reason it's still possible to get tyres for it.

Sheldon Brown just lists it as a juvenile tyre size, no other info on it.

Why not just get a folder? Same bike with added convenience.

I prefer brakes and an upright riding position, but that one looks like it could go quite fast.

I'm not sure why I like mini velos i kinda just do. I think they'd be fun for short rides as a look at me bike. Does anyone have any experience building/ riding one?
