Product Reviews

Paired with the 9-26 cassette (yes, that’s right – the smallest sprocket has just nine teeth) [the Verge X18] gives a range of 28-109 gear inches, which is comparable to a standard compact road bike gearing set-up.

Cyclist

Klein, aber oho: Nebenbei vereint es die Fahreigenschaften eines normalen Rennrads mit den Vorzügen eines Klapprades. [Small but powerful: it combines the riding characteristics of a normal road bike with the advantages of a folding bike.]
