An inexpensive full-size folding bike with some disadvantages of cheap components.

This is a decent choice of folding mountain bike for the price of just under $200 that you can rarely find elsewhere. It is properly functioned, having a wide selection of gear that allows riders go smoothly both on and off road. Despite some drawbacks in its component quality, this folding mountain bicycle still offers absolutely great values for the low-end price range.


Pros and Cons

Pros


  • Its high-quality parts are manufactured by Shimano – one of the world’s leading cycling component manufacturer.
  • The sturdy and nice-looking frame is made from industrial grade steel with the folding functionality, helping you to save a lot of space for storage in your apartment or garage. If you are on the road and would like to take the bike with you, it easily fits in your car trunk with no doubt.
  • 18 speed gear system allows the bike to perform smoothly on different road surfaces, especially when it comes to off-road cycling.
  • Alloy body spring-shocks at 750lbs/in functions excellently in reducing shock or pressure, and ensure a smooth, stable ride.
  • The package also comes with tools needed to assembly the bike.

Cons


  • The frame is made from steel so it is rather heavy.
  • Assembly might be difficult. Adjustment is definitely recommended before putting the bike into usage.
  • The seat is quite tall.
  • The brake is rather fragile.
