Light and fast is how Tern plays this one. Testers found the quick-folding frame (“N-fold” is the brand name) converted adrenaline into productive pedal strokes. Tern’s double-truss frame added unexpected rigidity for responsive turning. While the SRAM 10-speed drivetrain wasn’t up to topping out nearby Mt. Lemmon, smooth shifters handled rollers on sizzling blacktop and unconsolidated gravel. The athletic riding position landed testers upright enough to maintain composure and visibility in six-lane traffic. This model looked good standing still while mustering performance worth the bike’s mid-premium price.
