Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Extremely simple to maintain and use
This bike is as simple as it gets. There are no V-brakes, no levers, cables or a gear cassette fitted on this bike. Instead, it’s a single speed bike with a coaster braking mechanism. Less cables and gear means less maintenance, easier folding and a cleaner look.
Pro Easy to fold and unfold
Thanks to its magnetic latch folding mechanism, folding and unfolding the bike takes little effort. Once folded, it has an extra “leg” that allows it to stand vertically without falling over. The DoubleLock feature makes sure each latch has a secondary lock for maximum safety, which also serves as a reminder to make sure the latch is properly secured before riding.
Con Pedals can get damaged easily
Users need to pay attention when folding the bike to make sure that the pedals are properly folded as they are made from plastic and can be damaged easily.
Con Not very customizable
The handlebars can’t be adjusted, so your only option to fit the bike to your body is to change the seat height.
Con Not really suitable for steep or uneven surfaces
Since the bike has only one speed and uses relatively small tires, it’s best used on flat pavements. While you can go slightly uphill, you will have a hard time going up steeper hills. If the road has loose gravel or even sand, it will also be difficult to ride on it.
Con It may take a while to get used to the brakes
For first time users, the brakes will require some time getting used to because you need to push the pedals counter clockwise in order for the bike to stop. This can feel odd at first and you need to learn how much pressure you need to apply to avoid losing control of the bike. But once mastered, these brakes can even be preferable over v-brakes because of their simplicity and because they require less maintenance.
