It feels like I am riding a full size bike. It is easy to fold. It is easy to push around, like a trolley. The M type with 6 speeds and dynamo lighting means that I can travel up and down hills (stamina permitting) and at night. It is easy to store indoors and I don't have to worry about theft. The front pannier is great. It carries everything I need and doesn't hinder any steering. It clips off quickly and I can sling it over my back with the shoulder strap and then collapse and carry the bike.
