Not enough power. That bike wouldn’t stand a chance on pot holed roads. There are better options out there.
I find the 350w geared motor to be plenty of power, especially turning 20 inch wheels. I’m quite impressed with this folder.
I’m blown away by this bike also. It’s really solid and has a large variety of practical features covered. I commute daily with it through semi-rugged country roads and a massive college campus. It’s versatile. I’m out!
