Reviews for Euromini/Zizzo Liberte

I'm in the market for a lighter folding bike (my current Dahon is ~32lbs) and I saw the Euromini/Zizzo Liberte at 23lbs. If you have one, please let me know how you like (or dislike) it.

The bike will be primarily used in my multi-modal commute (bike+subway) in the DC Metro area and for some recreational biking (10-25mi). The Downtube Nova, the Origami Dragon and the Solorock Spin 5 are the other folders I'm looking at. I'm also looking at Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace for used folders that fit my requirements. Thanks!

I dont have the new Liberte....I have 2 Urbanos. The 24# model. Approx 14 months of ownership, they get ridden nearly daily and have far exceeded expectations. I have recommended them to several others, and gifted a couple to family if that doesnt speak volumes, Im not sure what does.

The saddles suck (or bite, or chafe, or just plain hurt depending on your point of view) IMO but nothing a $20 “Inbike” brand saddle didnt fix. Not an uncommonality amongst most economy bikes of all types.

The Liberte, as I understand it is Zizzo’s answer to the Dahon Mariner...entirely rust resistant, and with QR wheels and narrower rubber. All for a weight savings of just 1#, and about $50 add’l. Aimed at boaters, beach dwellers etc. Otherwise, I believe its essentially the same bike.

That said either the Liberte or the 1# heavier Urbano should prove a great choice and value for the cost.
