I am constantly stopped while riding by people asking me questions, such as:
1. Where I bought my bike?
2. Does it fold?
Answer: Yes it fits perfectly in the back of my car. Additionally, I just flew with it to Europe in a suitcase...it fit with no problems.
3. How does it compare to a bigger wheel bike?
Answer: It's easier to adjust for my body so it feels better.
4. Is it slower because of the smaller wheels?.
Answer: The speed is a derivative of the gearing which is very wide, so I can fly past up with big wheel cyclists.
Shopping with my folding bike is always a blast, I carry it in a shopping cart and everyone stares ( at the bike not me ). Keep in mind bright color bikes in yellow and orange will bring you more friends.
