I bought this knowing that it would be a bit heavy and a bit big. You can fold it, however. It came nicely packaged and was a piece of cake to assemble. Then I took it to a local shop to make better brake adjustments (for my needs). It is a nice brown with pleather handles and saddle. Looks good, not like the boring silver bikes that you see everywhere. The gearing permits me to go up a fairly steep slope with only mild effort. Finally, important to me, thus far, after a few days in the rain, it hasn't begun to rust. I recommend you buy this as an "around town" bike.
