Same price on Amazon, although currently OOS. Have been looking for a folding bike for a while but the reviews Amazon are quite mixed - think I'll hold fire.

Emelle are an old old make. At 17kg it could hardly be considered portable but it is a bike, you either ride it or stow it in a luggage compartment. 20" wheels seem quite adequate IMO.

Good find with Quidco, but I think I'll walk.

RRP of £115 suggests its not going to be much of a ride and a poor spec.
I bought an Oyama 8 speed Lexington for £224.99 (reduced from £449) from Winstanleys (still available at this price, see thread on HUKD) that puts a smile on my face everytime I ride it.
I suspect this will spend more time folded up than ridden, so save your money and but one you'll enjoy riding otherwise the cheaper buy is a false economy!

unless u have a budget of under £100.
we can all posst deals of better bikes that cost 4 x this one but the art of it is to post alternative deal that is better and at similar price.
#5
3 x as much, do the maths.
And 50% off, a far greater saving.
As for a £100 budget, I wouldn't recommend a folding bike for under £100, there are cheaper single speed folding bikes than this one though I wouldn't post any of them as I wouldn't recommend any of them to a friend or a stranger - a poor quality cheap bike that is cheaper is not a deal, it's just a poor quality cheap bike - you'd be better off looking at secondhand!

If that really is all your budget will stretch to then at least it's coming from a shop where you can return it when it breaks or you realise it's hopeless.

These cheap folders tend to be very small (child or small adult only), fairly heavy and don't actually fold that small as the handlebar stem doesn't fold. Single speed on this one too so it'll be hard work.

Alternative? Dahon make the best folders and they are expensive as a result but you should be able to get a decent used one for under £150 on 'the bay'. Look for a 'Speed D7' or similar, not the very early type.

I recently bought a Dahon d7 second hand for £120. It was in excellent condition when I bought it and serves me well. There are some good second hand deals out there for anyone who's willing to put in the effort to find them.

Dahon d7 weighs 12.5kg and has 7 gears. Real joy to rideI've found I can outride some mountain bike riders using it. :-p

No, Brompton make the best folders. The problem is their bikes are the opposite of cheap.

You've got to smile at the elegant French-sounding brand name - it comes from the budget UK cycle distributors Moore & Large = ML = "Emmelle"

No, Brompton make some of the most compact folders and are well made but they are not the best to ride - at £650 and up you're right on the second point!
