Hi all, I've tried a few folding bikes (Citizen and Schwinn) so far and found they didn't have the power I needed to get up hills, sadly. I see this "project bike" at my local bike co-op for $20. Does anyone know about this brand?

What does this mean? The gearing was not low enough?

I guess that's how it was feeling, yes, I have to go over two pedestrian bridges over Amtrak wires and a highway so it's steep.

Naming brands doesn't provide enough information. You really need to specify the exact model.

That bike isn't going to be very good for climbing hills.

Well, that bike is a single speed so it's probably not what you need.

It's a three speed (according to the link).
