Is suspension necessary on a folding mountain bike?

Most mountain bike enthusiasts agree that a good suspension system is an essential requirement on a folding mountain bike if reasonable comfort is a consideration. Some mountain/trail bikes have suspension on the front axle while others have it on the back. Some models have suspension on both front and back axles although many cyclists consider this to be an unwarranted expense. Generally speaking it’s more convenient to have the suspension on the rear wheel as this is where most of the riders weight is concentrated.

The cheaper models are usually manufactured in countries will lower labor costs such as China. Also online sales prices are generally less than purchasing from a retailer because of the shorter distribution chain and greater economies of scale.
