The bike is well built, good design, but it does require some fiddling around with the hinge connecting screw every time I fold/unfold the bike (which is 90% of it’s use). The ride is smooth as long as the road is smooth. If you hit a pothole, bump or even a slight ridge , you’re going to know it!It’s a hard ride and could benefit from some kind of shock absorption in that case. Battery charges and holds the charge nicely. The gauge os ok- backlighting would help it be more visible. The lights and fenders are nicely made, but I do have to realign them often ( perhaps due to the ****** paths and roads i’m on. My main purpose was to get a bike that folds into this size and is easily liftable (after removing the battery). This does it, plus, it looks cool, too.
