A really excellent folding bike
I spent an embarrassingly long time shopping for a folding bike - nearly a year - after I started a new job in a building that didn't welcome bike commuters. During that process I compared every bike available under $700, and I learned the difference between frame metals, freewheels versus cassettes, optimal number of gears given my rides, folding mechanism... everything. The 9s is a bike that punches far above its weight on price - it's several hundred dollars less than other name-brand bikes with comparable specifications, and it's way, WAY more functional than anything anywhere near the same price range. This was an excellent purchase, and I highly recommend this bike.
