I’ve had this bike for since this past summer but has only seen limited use, preferring to use my other bikes. The big issue for me has been the flat handlebar was causing me wrist pain. Since my LBS converted it to a drop bar, this bike is seeing a lot more use. I use this bike mainly to ride 2 miles to my carpool meeting location (only on days I don’t drive ;) ). I fold the bike, place in the Dahon El Boso Bag, and place in the drivers trunk. My carpool is pretty cool letting me letting me do this.
I am really surprised how well this setup fits me.
