Product Description

If you consider this just as a mountain bike, it stacks up pretty well against its competition. Dual suspension, quality components from suppliers such as Shimano; it's tough and built to last, and looks great too. But where this bike really comes into a league of its own is when you consider its incredible folding frame. For so many people, space is at a premium, whether it's storage space at home, space in the car, or even space on public transport. This bike allows you to keep all the fun of a mountain bike even in tight spaces. KMC Z33 chain, Folded dimensions: L 39" x H 35" x W 23.5", 36 lbs fully assembled. Left shifter: Microshift 3 speed grip shifter, Right Shifter: Microshift 6 speed grip shifter, Front Derailleur: Saigun QD-23a, Rear Derailleur: Shimano RD-TZ50. Brand new.

There are some rough reviews here for this bike, and I imagine it's because they are written by some hardcore bikers. For the person who rides a bike every so often for casual exercise or a leisurely coast through the neighborhood (like me), this bike will meet your needs and expectations. Nothing fancy. Maybe not the fastest bike in the world. But it gets the job done without feeling like I'm sitting on a toy wondering when it's going to snap in half.

Admittedly, I was skeptical sitting on a folding bike for the first time. All it took was one decent ride to forget that the frame was two separate pieces. I haven't seriously ridden a bike in years (and by years I mean over a decade) with any seriousness, and this brings me back to my childhood. For people who aren't bike experts or enthusiasts and just want a functional bike that saves on space in the shed or trunk, this bike is just fine. If you are one of those people who takes the bikes apart to customize them part for part, you may be better off just getting a more expensive bike.

I bought this bike because I want to exercise more and because I bought a small car and didn't want to mess with a bike rack. This suits my needs by being able to fit in the trunk (of a MINI Cooper, no less!) while only having to fold down one of the back seats. I can still carry two passengers along with this bike. It also fits easily in my living room and breaks down without a sweat. It IS heavier than I would have expected, but that's the price for getting the mountain bike version instead of the city version, I suppose. If anything, I consider maneuvering it while folded as just another aspect to the exercise.

After a few days, I'm perfectly happy with this bike. I was hesitant to choose this one over the other 26" folding bikes because it lacked any reviews, so here is my review :)

The Good: It's a perfectly functional folding bike with 18 speeds and full-size wheels. It was the only option at the time that had full size wheels and more than 6 speeds, in this price range ($200 shipped), so that is a definite plus. It also has rear shocks which is nice, though I don't know if I'll make any use of them. I consider myself to be a novice at bicycles, but everything was pretty self-explanatory and I made it work with no trouble, which is important because the instructions were minimal; the only things you need to assemble are to attach the front wheel, the seat post, the handlebars post, and the pedals (to their arms), which were all simple. All my accessories from my old bike fit onto this one just fine too (luggage rack, fender, seat).

The Bad: The manual is sparse, and what illustrations it has are clearly for a different bike. Expect to use your noggin when assembling this. One part of the bike was damaged, probably during shipping. It was the lip of the part where the handlebar unit slides into the frame, and the damage made attaching the handlebars impossible. Fortunately it was just the collar that was damaged, not the frame itself, and my local used bike store had a bin full of them, and I was able to get a matching replacement at no cost (shout out: recycled cycles on boat st, seattle). Now everything works fine. The wheels are not quick-release, which surprised me, but the seat and folding mechanism are.

Edit: 6 months later, I still use this bike as my daily commuter. The mechanics of the bike are solidly "average.

I have put 40 miles on the bike at this point, both road (with a tire change) and 10 miles of trails. I am already replacing components that shouldn't be replaced. All of your money on this bike goes to the frame. They definitely cut corners on components to market this bike at this price. For mild trail riding this bike is not very durable. I don't like that the brake arms are plastic as well as the rear derailleur pulleys; expecting these to break at some point. I have already bent the bottom bracket (crank axle) as it is fairly cheap and flimsy. This happened mid trail and I lost my crank arm mid pedal; had it been on a switchback I would have been in the gully. Bike quality mostly rests on the components, and these are cheap.

Pros: This is great bike for simple fact of storage and portability. Great for storing under the camper or in the back of the van and for moderately level riding off road and on. Comparable to any bike at wal mart under $100.

Cons: The manual is a waste paper. Everything need adjustment out of the box...I mean everything. Get a spoke wrench and go to YouTube and research "Rear Derailleur Adjustment", "V-Brake Adjustment", and "Bicycle Wheel Truing". Get a line on replacement will need them.

The only reason there are two stars is because the parts are standard size and I like the frame.

I have owned this bike for a week now. The shipping was VERY fast, but the packaging of the product was not in its best shape, (the box it comes in had holes all in it, cheap cardboard) Needless to say mine came without the pedals or the two tools used to assemble the bike which required an additional shipment from them. The pedals and assembly tools came very quickly after a couple back and forth emails, which I praise them for clearing up their error efficiently. As others have said, the manual is not exactly clear, nor is it for the right bike in sections, but I was able to put it together pretty easy.

About the bike...its $200 with free shipping. Try and find dual suspension bikes at Walmart in general for this price...and then add in the fact that this one folds up....amazing. Yes the components are questionable but for me, the sole purpose of this bike is to be able to ride the metro in San Francisco during rush hour (foldable bikes are allowed on all subways at all times) In this case the bike works perfectly for my needs, a casual ride to and from the office. It does need adjusting when you receive it, so factor that in.

I agree with another poster that the frame is small, and the front tire is too close to the frame/pedals. You have to be a little careful. I ended up adjusting the headstem and seat up as far as they go to make it fit for me (6'0, 190lbs) As for the back shock....go ahead and turn it all the way until the rear is stiff and pretty much locked out, otherwise you will be losing tons of energy pedaling uphills with it bobbing up and down. Wish there was an adjustment I could make to the front shock because I'd do the same.
