I kinda wish they used a smaller chain ring. I could use some lower gears and I don't really need a 94.5" top gear on a folder like this.

The story of every bike I've ever bought... [they think we're boy racers]
I change the gearing till I get a 20 inch low and as high as I can get without lossing that low.
But then I live where these's hills.
20" low is as slow as walking and takes as much energy as sprinting. I think the D7 gear ratio is pretty good.
My D7 is perfectly geared for me and my route.
Even that fixed handlebar stem is a perfect fit.
Fewer Cars, more handlebars!
