Anybody heard of the Carrywe?

Looks like a Carryme Single Speed without the Pacific-Cycles decals/logo. 5 colors (White, Red, Orange, Pink, Black) Is this a fake? Copy?
Someone is selling them on e-bay from hong-kong.

Yes, Carrywe is definitely an imitation of Pacific Carryme. :(

The layout and some photos on their website are directly copied from the website of Hometec Technology Inc., the distributor of Pacific Cycles' bicycles in Taiwan! :evil:
http://www.hometec.com.tw

However, George Lin, the boss of Pacific Cycles said, "None of the bikes of Pacific Cycles for which we have applied for patents since 1990:
  1. A bike of Pacific Cycles needs more than 10 months from making to manufacture, so each series is unique.
  2. There're so many technologies used on a bike from design to manufacture which the competitors cannot copy.
If someone wants to copy your product, there's no way to prevent from this even you have applied for a patent. However, the pattern of copying is rare in the bicycle industry because no one can survive by this."
Sustainable development: George Lin think that making bikes is making products for environmental protection and energy saving. Their enterprise has a slogan, "One more bike, one less car".

It looks rather clumsy.. 8-)
In S.Korea, there's been no faked carryme yet.
