This is a great foldable bike and it not too heavy, with weight of 30lbs. The qualities of parts are goods, brakes and gears work great. The shifters work well and you can cleanly shift and use gears without annoying chain rub.
One of the reviewers complained that the handlebar are not high enough. He then ended up with installing a stem raiser to have higher handlebar to make it a more comfortable and safer ride. For tire application, if you use it mainly as a commuter, buy street tires for a much smoother and faster ride on pavement. Meanwhile, for off-road, the knobby tire comes handy.
