I bought this bike for my commute to work. I currently cycle about 3 miles to the city bus stop and another mile after I disembark. Our city bus system will let you bring a folding bike on board if the front racks are full, assuming there is room inside. It's been great for the few times the racks have been full to keep on schedule. It rides pretty well, very easy to get up hills with the small tires, but the top speed is very limited. It's plenty fast for my route and this commuting arrangement saves me a good bit on fuel every month.
