Our top folding commuting bike ( pre order shipping week of Nov 8, 2020 followed by price increase  )

The XS is our top commuter folding bike, upgraded to 10 speeds. When it comes to commuter folding bicycles, we do it better than anyone. The XS has a rear rack that give you plenty of room to carry all of your stuff. With frame geometry similar to the high-end 9FS , the XS is a rock-solid bike. We use standard bike parts, hence  swapping parts is easy. Other folding manufacturers use proprietary parts, which are sometimes impossible to replace.

To make the XS comfortable, we have added an adjustable front suspension fork. The suspension will soak up the rough roads. The saddle has a love channel to keep stress away from your private parts. Plush tires also help smooth out the ride.

Once you try using the brakes of the XS, you'll notice how powerful they are. The XS comes fitted with high-end two finger Tektro levers (with a comfort rubber grip) Tektro V brakes are matched with machined sidewall rims. The textured rim surface is an essential for ultimate braking performance. Other manufacturers still use slick rims which allow the brakes to slide on the rims surface, our setup is simply superior. The XS is also disc brake ready with 6-bolt interfaces on both front and rear hubs, and cable stops for discs.

For easy customization of the bike’s fit, we've added min-bar ends and high-rise handlebars. These allow an adjustable fit without hindering the super compact fold. The rise handlebar can be rotated to get 1.5" of adjust-ability in any direction. Additionally, the bar end adjustment allows the rider the ultimate custom fit.

Our low-cost, high-value customer direct business model means that our bikes are not only of the highest quality, but are also a unique value. If you are looking for a top-tier commuter bike at a bargain price, the XS is ideal.

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.
