As a folding bike devotee I have just purchased a second hand Giant Halfway on a bit of a whim. 

It was not a bike I was familiar with but I was intrigued by the 'halfway' single sided forks front and rear and having received the bike was impressed by a number of the other clever details. It is also a really comfortable geometry and although not yet properly test ridden (fractured wrist) I have a feeling that it will be a really fun, nippy bike to ride.

Having now done a bit of research I discovered that it was designed by Mike Burrows but the bike that was put into production by Giant was in Mike's view compromised by 'committee'.

Anyone have any insight into what those compromises might have been?
