I've had mine now for a week, no problems at all apart from not being as fit as I thought I was, lol. Only thing is that it doesn't 'click' closed, it kind of holds closed when the handle bars are down, so you have to pick it up from a certain side. Nice ride, gears good, not too heavy, very easy to put up and down, fits in the boot of the car nicely. So all in all, very good value for money.
Good price for a folding bike. Not as good as a Brompton, but you aren't going to find one of those for anything close to under £120.

Review from Amazon customer:

Purchased as a commuting bike. However, after 2 weeks the follolwing faults have occured. The pedal is falling apart from its bearings. The front caliper brake has broken away from the plastic coating. I suspect more niggling problems will occur. I suggest you by this bike as a reserve bike that you use occasionally.
I agree this review isn't that favourable but the ones on the tesco website are better, I've just ordered one anyway so I will report back when it arrives - I only need one to travel a few miles three times a week from the train station to university and it needs to fit in the boot of a mini so it should be fine for me. I wish I could afford a Brompton though :)
Folders can be as good as road bikes but it needs a lot of clever engineering to do that - which costs! See Bromptons & Terns. The only exception I know is the IKEA folder which was given away to employees. These sometimes come up on eBay for around this level of price.

BTW most Bromptons are made of steel!

Tip of the day. Cheap heavy bikes are a pig to ride, but you can make it much easier by pumping up the tyres to the recommended pressure. Remarkably few people do which makes them feel dead weight. The most essential accessory after a lock is a good track pump. Might cost you £20 but will make a bike feel like one costing much more ... Oh and pressured tyres are much more resistant to punctures - the other disaster which gets people to abandoning their purchase.

Twist-grip gears are bad enough on mountain bikes. I'd hate to think how horrible they'd be on this bike. It's not even worth upgrading to dual control shifters (best price I saw was about £129 for a pair) for a to do so would cost more than you spent on the bike in the first place.
Look close on the image and you will see that the handlebar binding is torn! And that's the one that they picked to photograph.

I was trying to see just what they meant by "rotational shifters", and it's what I thought. This has twist-grip type shifters like a mountain bike, mounted near the stem on the top of the bar. With racing bars there are maybe three positions that people place their hands, and these shifters are convenient only for the least likely, meaning that you will usually be moving your hand from the handlebar every time you shift. Premium racing bike shifters are built into the brake levers, and can be operated without moving your hands from the two most used positions on the bars. And before someone says "oh you can just fit different shifters", it would cost a fortune and probably involve changing the gearchange mechs and chainrings. This is hardly an improvement on the original shifter position from the sixties, down on the frame tube.
Oh God, a bike thread. Hang on, I'll get some popcorn...
wow, this is a great looking bike for the money - HEAT!
