A flashy, gold-hued inverted fork does the suspending up front, with a standard monoshock in the rear. The suspension, not surprisingly, is soft and did bottom out once as it carried my 185 pounds through a dip in the road. But the springs need to be soft to soak up what city streets throw at them, considering the 12-inch wheels hit bumps that much harder. You should be able to avoid most of the bumps, though, as handling is decidedly agile. As it should be, on a bike rolling on such small rims and having a claimed weight of 225 pounds.
