The bike has single speed gear so it of r the ones, who only wants a foldable bike, no fancy features. 20’ inch wheels are good for bike riding, but full size is preferable if you’re tall.

Detailed Review

Out of the box, this bike needs nothing and is sheer perfection. The simple and minimal design makes it the beauty. When you pick it up, you realize that it is very light. It is lighter than most of the single speed bikes available in the market. The brand is famous for minimal designed bicycles, and anybody could tell why.

When you ride this bicycle, you will find that it is as smooth as it gets. The single speed folding bike with gear has no complications and maintenance cost. So you can ride this thing for coming years without any difficulty. The frame is solid, and when used it on concrete road, it was responsive, and ride well. Coming to parts, their build quality is commendable, that’s a sure thing, and it is not like those cheap foldable bikes, this thing may be simple, but have got quality.

While riding, when brakes are applied, it stops after a while, very strong inertia was felt, that’s how brakes work, but it took some time to stop. The coaster brakes surely need some improvement. Long hours doesn’t hurt this bike, because saddle is comfy and fancy.

The only competitor of this brand is dahon, but this bike beats single speed bikes of dahon. There is not enough parts really to malfunction, as I mentioned above, which cuts the extra cost over the bike after a period of time.

You could just pick it up, and ride to the outskirts, town, and city roads, anywhere. Bike has got minimum requirements, but maximum performance in the segment.

This bike is recommended to kids, boys, adults who could recall their childhood memories, roamers, town riders. Basically, the ones who don’t have much need from a bike, who can be satisfied with simple and strong bicycle. As far as durability is concerned, it is one of the strongest bike in single speed segment.

  • Lightweight, only weighs 21.5 pounds
  • Minimal design
  • Low maintenance
  • Good performance

  • Brakes need improvement
  • Single speed ( not really a con, but depends upon choice)
