Hi everyone,

New to the scene.
Intending to get a foldie.
Considering between 3sixty 6speed vs sava z1 9speed.
The reviews I saw on 3sixty are generally good but not sure on the Sava Z1. In terms of price probably a difference of around 200.
May I know if it's worthwhile to get Sava Z1 given that it's carbon fiber?
In terms of performance, which is better?

From one of my friend who gets it from his friend who imports it

Not worth it.

Litepro aero wheels are heavier than ordinary. For normal riders you will do better with lighter wheels. In fact small wheels don't need to be aero. How much aerodynamics can they improve compared to overall (bike + rider) wind resistant surface?

CST tyres n tubes are ordinary China made stuffs which are likely heavy and roll slower, so these might become things to upgrade. What's the point of aero wheels when paired with lousy tyres?

Crank is square tapered but states that chainring 53t is hollowtech is quite contradicting. High chance is still the heavy square tapered crank that may introduce some problems after a while.

The shimano rd is altus model which is one of the lowest end of shimano products. They should include shimano cassette and chain rather than 3rd parties'. Not sure if the rear shifting would be smooth. By the way this is a 9 speed setup without double chainrings. Got pros n cons, but climbing steep slopes with 53t x 23t might be a little harder though doable with strong legs.

Be ready to upgrade the foamy and thin handlebar grips.

depends on your rim - is it for schradar (bigger hole) or presta (smaller) valve? i use to run 1.25" to 2.4" thick 26" tires on my MTB last time and i found 1.75" thick 26" tubes to be fine for a wide range w/o issues and if not sure about valve type just stick to presta cos sure can fit any type of rim wif hole for tube ^^
