Not for tall people!

Shipping was very fast and the bike is very compact and folds down nicely, but the "one size fits all" moniker is misleading - people over 5' may find this bike to be uncomfortable to ride.

Amazing Bike! Best purchase of the year

I bought this bike to avoid using the New York City subway during Covid19. I've been using this bike everyday for a month and I couldn't be happier. I was a bit afraid it was going to be very slow with the small wheels but it's amazing. I'm 5'1 and 125lbs and I'm passing A LOT of fellow cyclists both uphill and downhill. There are no gears but for city use that's just fine. Average speed is 15-18.5mph. It would probably be difficult to go faster than 18.5mph but that's a very good urban speed. It seems that there is possibility to instal a front light but don't know how to get the light that fits there on purpose. Any advice?

Perfect for short commutes

Background: I used to use an electric scooter for my short commute to the BART (3miles) and from BART to work in SF (2miles). But found myself not really putting any exercise into it. Thus, this folding bike comes into play. 2 week review (commute every weekday): So far the bike has been excellent for my purposes. It's very ight so I can just pop the saddle to hang on my shoulder going up and downstairs (like a bag with a strap). It's folds extra tiny for the lead car on BART (no full bikes allowed in the lead car, most of the time I don't even fold it in other cars). The ride takes some getting used to, but it's a close of a feel to a full size as you can get with a 14" wheelbase. So far the bike has held up on hopping curbs, running over potholes and water in the SOMA and Financial districts of SF. The components seems good enough quality for a $250 bike. This is a good minimalist folding bike that is light, durable (so far), and easy on the wallet. Great for short distance commutes. The caveats: the seat dosent adjust high enough if you are 5'7" or taller. So you'll find yourself not being able to fully extend your legs on the pedals (inefficient pedaling). Get a larger wheelbase of your taller. Don't expect to go fast on this bike. The single speed gear is conservative and good for about 12-13 mph max on flat ground with a consistent cadence. Probably good for most people. Tips:- bring an extra wrench on your rides as there is no quick release for the wheels. Good for keeping your wheels secure from theft, but not as easy to take off if you need to change the tube. -Frame has a built in handle to carry while in folded mode. - while folding for transport. Fold the stem "inward" to where the bike frame (when foldered) can hang on the stem. This keeps things from flopping around in fold mode. - comes with fenders

Lightweight and Durable

This is my 2nd folding bike and this is super light compared to the Atomic Neon. It's a bit hard to fold and unfold at first, but maybe once you use it daily it will adjust.

My First Bike

For a first timer, I'm enjoying this bike. I have no problems with it, and it's simple enough to fold. It's a bit difficult to ride uphill though

small, simple and light for car driver

Compact and easy to move around. Sleek, comfy and practical bike. Easy to assemble and unfold into car except joint's lock is stiff and may need two hands to open up or to close the lock cap. But that is not a big concern so long it's secure, and only takes a few seconds to do so. From James Thng
