Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.Rated 4 out of 5 by Driverless It does what it says A good bike so far, only had it out a few times,folds up nicely and fits in the car boot,great on the flat and the downhill but a bit sluggish uphill only three gears and an old fat guy on the peddles, does what I want it for so overall very good,thanks Halfords. 22 June 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Lulu26 Great overall Lovely looking bike and very easy to fold up and ride. I've lots of positive comments and some have asked where it was purchased. Really pleased! 19 June 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by JRTowner I doubt you will find better value folding bike Obviously, other brands fold down smaller and weigh less (not many), however for the price I paid for this, it does everything asked of it. It folds down very easily with practice. If you are comfortable carrying a 10-12 kg suitcase, this will not present you with many problems. I strongly recommend this bike, if you don't want to pay the price premium for smaller wheeled bikes. I live in an area with rolling hills on the way to the station, and I find the bottom gear adequate. 12 June 2016Rated 3 out of 5 by Monti1970 Love it The only reason this bike only gets 4 stars is due to me ordering it on line only to arrive at the store to be told it was only the display model left , I was fine with this however the bike never had a rear rack so I had to come back on the Saturday to collect a new bike . However I collected one from Cumbernauld (another display model ) the next day . The bike itself is however a real head Turner and rides great , I park about two miles from the city centre and ride in from there , the bike easily fits in my car boot and folds/ unfolds in under a minute easily , I also use it for my work traveling around Glasgow which it handles easily . 3 gears work with no problem and can handle inclines well . Previous reviews stated a looseness in the handlebars going up hills however this is easily resolved by tightening a bolt , all in all a 5 star bike , might even buy a road bike for the weekends now as cycling bug has bitten 12 June 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Derpy Great value Pulled the trigger on this little monster a week ago and I'm very impressed. With the various discounts and sales it came to €214, which is a steal. The gearing means it maxes at about 30kph on the flat which is perfect for hammering around suburbia and city centres. The fold is pretty easy when you get the hang of it. The hub gear is smooth and maintenance free, It fits under my desk in the office, saves an hour a day on my commute and it demolished a 30km cross-town spin. Long term reliability is a concern, no problems yet but the handlebars flex a little and the magnets that hold it together when folded look like weak points. 10 June 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by happy2b Well pleased with this bike Well-built, sturdy construction. Did a 40-mile ride yesterday to compare with road bike - not too much of a compromise for benefit of carrying in car boot on holiday. Gear ratios good (for me); although only three gears, again a good compromise for convenience of enclosed gear system. Braking good, so too stand & rack. 10 May 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Top 100% quality Thanks to Alperton Halfords staff for suggesting this bike. It feels very firm and fast, it's really good quality and worth every penny. Bit difficult to fold it up but it's actually works out in favor for a safety reason. Very happy with the purchase. Thank you 28 March 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by becca7 A good option at an affordable price This is quite a nice looking bike - it has had several positive comments. It doesn't fold up as compactly as more expensive folding bikes but it is a fraction of the price and I found it to be very good value. It's fairly heavy to carry. With small wheels it's not the easiest to ride but I have cycled 12 miles on it quite happily and could probably have gone on further but I'm very much a novice rider. 19 November 2015
