Absolutely love my new bike!! It has motivated me to be more active and take better care of myself!
I put a basket on it and it ruined the brakes a bit and the handlebars. But they are fine now. Just wish that I could put a basket on it. Other than that it rides okay so far. Need to get used to it still.
So the bike is good for the price. I use it to commute from the train to work. The handle bar is a bit wobbly but it doesn't affect the performance or safety. Bottom line i like the bike and so will you
I purchased this bike in August but I have Multiple Sclerosis (55 Female/5'2" 125pds) and it was too hot give it a test ride.
After riding it this morning,this bike will take on any terrain. It tackled these New York (The Bronx) sidewalks like a champ. The ride is between a Mountain Bike and BMX bike with it's beefy tires,you might want to change the seat(I changed mine to a sport seat) depending on if you rode bikes as a kid back in the 1970s-1980s,you might more comfortable with those types of seating.
Durable and you can pretty much ride over anything like busted sidewalks (NYC) that is an urban mountain bike terrain obstacle course.
1)Long pole that attaches to the handle bar is slightly wiggly and rattles if you hit a bump.I have tried adjusting it thinking it was a "wheel alignment" issue but it a product defect.
2)Chain keeps skipping out of gear between 3rd and 4th which was getting quite annoying during the test ride (one hour),which is why I stayed within walking distance of the house.Will check screws/bolts and tighten before next ride.
I just received my "refurbished Liberte" since I wanted a "lighter bike" and will review that one later this month.
I live in a small apartment with no room to store a bike so I thought this would be the best option and I was pleasantly surprised! I’m a smaller girl and was worried about folding it up but was pleasantly surprised! This bike is so easy to fold up and is lightweight so packing it up into my car is a breeze!
I love it though im still learning the gears!!
I am 78 and have always loved cycling but after having some hip problems I have had trouble getting my leg over the saddle of my road bike to the point of giving it away. I needed a bike that I could step through and feel safe on. My wife bought my Zizzo for my birthday and I am on the road again. I love this little bike. It is solid, comfortable
and well made and it was ready to ride out of the box!
Was not aware that things like folding peatles came with more exspensive bikes. but i didn't really do much research anyway so that is partially my fault. honestly would not buy a bike online again because it was a bit off a hassel to take it to the bike shop and all that.
Bought the Via model in 2018 and loved it. Bought Ferro 2022 and love it too. Bikes are used as commuter to/from work 6 miles per day 5 days a week. Highly recommended.
Just received this bike and was impressed with the quality. Had to reach out to support to make a hinge latch adjustment. Support very helpful and even offered follow up in case I had any issues. Got this bike to pack in my general aviation plane to use as transportation to make short trips from airports that don’t have any transportation readily available. Comfortable, sturdy, and easily folded. Once my wife tried it she fell in love and wants one as well. She just needs to settle on a color. We look forward to having a great time using these bikes on our adventures.
Really fast shipping and quality is good.literally shipped in 2 days from California to NC

Wish there was some shock absorption but other than that no complaints.
Love the bike. Super fun to ride. It takes a bit to fold and unfold. But it’s a folding bike and that on its own is super unique.
It's okay. It's cheap so I'm not saying it's a bad deal but it really suffers with hills and high speeds. I've ridden it in a hilly area and a flat area. On the flat, it was really good. Felt a little cheap and squirmy but pretty decent. As soon as you try to climb a hill, you find some issues. It also feels somewhat unsafe when you're going down hills. I was unaware but the Ferro does not have folding pedals so they kind of get in the way. I'll blame that on me since I didn't look into it enough. All the folding mechanisms work pretty well and it rode well out of the box. My one big issue that was somewhat concerning is there was rust on the hinge areas when the bike arrived. Like I said, it's a cheap bike and I expect some quality issues but the rust was definitely concerning. Overall, if you need a cheap bike to ride under 3 miles to a train station, go for it. I rode it 7 miles in a hilly area to get to work and I won't be using it again for that. Honestly a great little city bike but just know it has limits.
We are very happy with our Ferro bikes. They fold up easily to carry with us in our RV. Ordering was easy and we received them quickly. Customer service answered a couple of follow up questions promptly.
Good bike for the price, works as expected. Had to adjust derailleur and brake a wee bit. V-brakes do not hit ground much when bike is folded so that they stay in place. Otherwise, (un)folding and using bike is relatively straightforward.
Quick release on seat post was not straight so I cannot put a rear rack onto the bike.
Bike is relatively heavier than, say, an equivalent gym weight (at 29 US pounds) because it's wide even when folded and tyres move. So if you will put your bike in a sedan, consider a lighter bike. Otherwise, you'll like this bike.
For safety and comfort, I replaced the original seat with this one.
I am 80 years old and was looking for a economical, good quality fold up bike to just ride for exercise in my neighborhood, RV Parks, and paved bike paths. I purchased my Ferro bike in Dec. 2020. I am so satisfied, not only with the quality, but with the P.R. of their sales department. Ferro was the only manufacture I was able to call and talk to a live Bike Guru. I talked to Tony, one of the developers of the bike, multi times before purchasing and multi times after receipt my bike. He answered all my questions and gave me good guidance,
Zizzo has very helpful videos showing how to unpack and remove the bike from the shipping box and how to unfold the bike for riding and to fold the bike for storage. I highly recommend Zizzo.

I love my bike so much. I ride it everywhere and it is my best friends since May 2020. I received my bike for my birthday and have had a great riding it. It's basically a great ride and I just love it so, so much. I take it everywhere I go. I am hopefully going to buy another one just to switch up. It rides great and gets me where I need to be. #zizzobikesrock
Love the bike. Space saving and fun to ride. We love it so much my sister bought two for her and her son.
BOUGHT 2 BIKES AND LOVE THEM BOTH. THE ONLY DRAWBACK WAS ONE OF THE BIKES (FORTE) HAD A DEEP SCRATCH ON THE HANDLEBAR.
Great quality bike! My wife and I have unlimited budget and usually buy at top end of items we want to buy. But we decided first, in this case to get a lower priced model folding bike to see if this is really what we want.
After two weeks we are in love with our Yellow Ferro Model Bikes and will not need to upgrade! We have taken them on dirt trails and city streets- very easy to change seat and handle heights to make it perfect for each of us.
We are very careful of what we buy so am sure any of you will love this bike. Great Job Zizzo!
Seat is very uncomfortable and didn’t realize I would have to buy fenders as an extra option and now I can’t seem to find any
I just wish it come with a rear rack and wheel plash guard. Because I want to install a child seat
I love my bike! I have been stalking this site waiting for some to come back in stock since the start of the pandemic and FINALLY (right before my bday) I was able to snag one so it came at the perfect time! Way better than expected the only thing I suggest is buying a gel seat cushion because if you plan on doing miles like I did it can be a little uncomfortable with the original seat. Other than that I’m glad I was patient and was able to purchase a ZiZZO Ferro because it was well worth the wait!

These bikes were a good purchase, and their customer service was very helpful. I’d recommend to anyone looking for a bike.
I loved the idea of a folding bike. Put in trunk and take off fishing. But my hess as Ltd put a crimp into that. My mind said yes my body said no! Service was excellent. Instructions on how to send back were perfect!
My first folding bike purchased primarily for convenience, has turned into pleasant outdoor experience. After a few minor adjustments as instructed in the support videos, the ride is a breeze. The Ferro is easy folding, a solid frame and smooth sailing on the road. More than satisfied!
It’s a great bike thank you
I got two Ferro model, my daughter loved it so much. We got the black and the white versions.
I love this bicycle, it’s easy to assemble, It’s fast and a lot of fun.
Only thing I wish the seat was more comfortable.
This bike is super well priced and totally worth it.
The bike was as expected. I was comfortable with the price and very happy no shipping cost.
Great bike fits perfectly in my small hatch back.
The handlebar post has too much movement back and forth for my liking it just feels very unsafe.
Purchased this Bake for many reasons wanted to ride on the boardwalk and needed a bike that I could bring places and it folds easily.It was easiest thing to assemble which surprised me and it rides super well! most importantly I can easily unfold it and take it with me when I travel.
My son love his new bike!!
Rides smooth, looks good, and folds nice and easy.
I live on a gravel road. I work in the city. I stay after work and usually walk for exercise. I ordered this bike to ride in the city before going home. The folding feature is what I really needed as I drive a small car. This bike rides really smooth and operates well in the city. I tried on the gravel road I live on and it did not operate well.
I have no issues with the bike except the handlebars can move back and forth too easy and feels unsafe.
My son loves it!!
Great bike! Lightweight, durable construction. Folds neatly and compact and rides better than any 7-speed I’ve ever used. Highly recommended, especially if you're a commuter!
Excellent quality great customer support I would definitely buy another one from this company
This is our second Zizzo. My son and I both love our bikes. I get a lot of people who stop and ask about them. They fit easily in the back of my Prius!
Bike is great. Just unfold and go. A friend wanted to get one but was sold out by this time.
Love the bike haven't had time to ride yet
It’s an amazing bike. Very pleased with it!!
These bikes are awesome, I bought 2 ferro for my sons, they love them, I have a folding bike from a competitor and I paid more for less off road capability,
The bike is very sturdy and well made. The seat is a little uncomfortable, so getting an extra seat cushion is recommended
Bought this as a test. Was very skeptical on the performance on the road and going uphills. After a few weeks of breaking the bike in, I am more than impressed. My only regret is not putting in a bit more money to get a better bike for the folding pedals and more. Other than that, for the price and what I got, this bike is amazing!!!!!!
This won't be a complete review. I just received my FERRO, and I really love the style of this bike. However right out the box, the tires had very little air in them, and my front brake pads are rubbing against the rim. I couldn't find a video that addressed that issue, for that particular bike model. Hoping some can help with that issue.
The bike is excellent , but I will prefer the saddle wider
Easy to fold and unfold, its a great bike, the secondary safety latch I have concerns But it's coverall better then my wife Columba folding bike. Looking forward to more great rides. Thanks !
Awesom. So great we bought two.
I love the way it rides. I really am comfortable on this bike. Living in an urban setting I thought I would have to give up bike riding because of lack of storage space. I no longer have to worry about it. This bike is the best! Its sturdier than I had expected. Feels like riding a scooter with pedals. Very easy to ride up hill. Great gears and breaking. The Ferrari red is beautiful !
I was excited to get this bike during the Covid19 shutdown mainly because it came 95% assembled. The quality is topnotch and it looks awesome. I've been stopped a few times by people saying how cool it looks.
I did a lot of homework to find this Zizzo bike. I went back and forth between the Ferro and another bike. I chose the Zizzo Ferro because of the reviews and the reasonable price. When I got my bike, unpacking the box and putting it together was so easy. The Framelock wouldn't close, but I figured out how to adjust it. After, it was good to go. I did my pre-check and took it for a little spin. I was so impressed on how smooth it road. It was so much easier to ride then my Cruiser bike. I will definitely ride this bike a lot and get into shape doing it. Being able to fold my bike and put it in my trunk is such a plus. I do not like a bike rack because I am always scared it will fall off while traveling. This is a good bike. I highly recommend it,

Exactly what I need
Love the improved features on the newer models, but my basic ferro is very nice. The weight is only bit more than Campo model. Seat IS a bit uncomfy for longer rides. Overall
This bike runs really smoothly! Great for getting around the city comfortably.
Last year I was in London and noticed that so many of the multitudes of bike riders were riding compact folding bikes and started researching folding bikes when I got back. I looked at a lot of folding bikes and decided on Zizzo.
I bought this bike before Christmas and am pleased with my purchase. I have 2 other folding bikes, this is the best of the 3. I am 5'9" and found the other bikes felt cramped because the seat post wasn't long enough, and even the replacement ones from bike shops weren't long enough for a comfortable ride. It was great to finally get one that allows me to ride comfortably without having to buy additional parts.
The bike was easy to prepare for riding, less than 20 minutes after opening the bike it was ready for riding. The tires were inflated, and all the adjustments for shifters and brakes were already set. The bike folds and unfolds easily.
The bike doesn't have any suspension but the fat tires do more than an adequate job of absorbing most of the shocks I've experienced.
I do wish the bike came with fenders and a package rack, but I can add them later.
Bike is exactly what I expected. I have limited storage so the fact that I can fold the bike is the best feature. Easy to assemble.
Very solidly built. My only problem at first was that the seat post kept sinking on me, even though I am not a heavy guy. I don't want to over-tighten the quick-release seat clamp. So, I drilled a 3/16-inch hole through the easy-to-drill aluminum seat post at the proper height and inserted a clevic pin of the same size through it. Now, everything works very well.
Superb value for the price
Keep Up The Great Work
Love the bike. When folded up I can put it in my back seat of my car and still have room. I also like that it can shift though all its gears out of the box. Have had it wear I have had to adjust the gear shifter just so I am actually on the gear that I selected. Only thing I would like with it is a storage container for a bike lock and tools so I don't need a backpack to carry it all the time.
Useless kickstand. Seat post too slippery. Sandpaper does the job. Wish water bottle comes with it so far so good as commuter bike give 5 star
There was a guy on Amazon reviewing a little bit cheaper bike and he said Just Get a Zizzo And Be Happy and boy was he right. The quality of the frame hinge is amazing. This bike fits right in the back seat of my RV-4 plane with room to spare. I love having my bike with me when I land. Last weekend I took it to Buena Vista, CO and pedaled around for five hours, got some great exercise at 8700' elevation and folded it in less than a minute, then back in the plane. Crazy value on the Ferro, for sure.
I bought this bike to ride back and forth to the beach from my car. It works great and fits in my Honda Fit perfectly. Thank you!
I bought this for my dad. He had major surgery a few years ago and has to sit upright to breathe properly, he also likes to save space in his garage. This bike is compact, adjustable, and allows him to sit upright. I am happy with how it arrived with only minimal assembly, one pedal had to be put on!
