It's only about 15kg I think, but yeah, probably not wise to put it on the top shelf!

Yeap that is it!
#13
Is this any good? I was gonna buy a brompton 2nd hand, will this last long?

I note from the photo the crank and chainring is all one piece - are these a nightmare to replace if they break?
#14

#15

#16

It is not one piece as far as I recall it was a plastic on chainring.
I wieght 96 kg :oops: and it holded me very well. I need to buy bike keys to fix things like breaks and bell.

What exactly are these things like to ride? 16 inch wheels sounds absolutely tiny.

Truely speaking I did not feel any difference between 26" one. Maybe I did not drive it fast enought, but Iam so happy now!

Being 6'3" and similar weight I am also interested in knowing this. Anyone with one able to measure the maximum possible height of the handlebars and saddle? And provide any specs? This would be great to throw in the boot of a car, even if I would feel a bit of an idiot riding one :D

Does morisons accept the tesco £5 off vouchers from "News of the world"?

No carry case and have to pay £5 for delivery!
#24
Iliko, Do you have any pictures of you with the bike? I'm intrigued to see a comparative size compared to a normal bike.

Can't imagine this will have as many spares available as Bomptons, probably a skip job if anything major breaks. Also it's 17kg! That's like 2 racing bikes. Bromptons are 10-12ish, but you're not going to get a second hand Bompton for 60 quid so...

I used to work at ikea and got a FREE raleigh folding bike.... never riden mine so i cant tell you how good it is but they seem funny and they are quite small considering its a bike.
#27
This bike is fine for emergency travel or mucking about on - but its extremely heavy compared to a normal bike. Its not really what you would pick for going to work on unless you really wanted to put getting fitter into the equation too - so you will be pedaling harder and faster to get there. This is fine if there is a shower you can use at your work.

To reach the weight it is - it is mild steel - and a lot of it. So I would imagine knees hitting the bars would be more of an issue than weight for our larger friends (says Mr 100+kg!!!).

Small wheels do feel different when you ride - they feel far 'twitchier' like they are very willing to turn quickly. The six ratios are well down on what you would get on most bikes - and from the reduced size rear wheel - fairly standard sized cogs, and standard sized crank - it WONT go fast - and even to keep up a distance pace your legs will be spinning like turbines.

But if its sits in the back of your car to use in parks or in an emergency - then its HOT.

The only thing I managed to find is it is writthen on each wheele Max Load 50 Kg.
So is not for those who are more thatn 100 Kg.

Here's my experience of riding a Brompton for 4 years -
They have a higher centre of gravity - you - than a normal bike. This means they are 'twitchier' to ride. It's easier to lean and make the bike move than on a mountain bike.
Also, be careful when it's wet. If you brake suddenly and the wheels skid, you have far less time to recover because it's twitchy.

I can't comment on the gearing on this bike, but the 6 gears on my Brompton are just about right. I could occasionally do with a slightly higher gear, but most of the time there is a suitable gear available, and because there are only six, it's quick to get to it.
I commute every day on it, on normal roads with a few little rises, mostly flat. I do 2.5 miles in about 15 mins, so not terribly slow. I sometimes overtake riders on full size bikes.

As for weight, it might be heavier than a racer, but it's lighter than my husbands mountain bike!

And for the taller person - taking your weight won't be the problem. The problem will be the limit on how high the seat can go, and the handlebars probably won't move very much, if at all. So your knees might be round your ears.:)

Rang the Proteam helpline on 0871 423 2341 and notified there is NO MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY only retailer's warranty!!! Morrison's offer 3 months.. OUCH!! Steel so found signs of rust and the bike did not fit fully into the bag for me as the seat stuck out of it whatever I did!
I found the Amazon Raleigh ones had lifetime warranty and better warranty on well known brand names.

I hope this helps..as mine had to go back..
#36
Looks ok, then again so is the one on sale at , argos.... looks better.

Erm, since when has it been the manufacturer decision as to whether they're going to offer a warranty or not... ?

12 month warranty by law for retail goods.
