Winstanley Bikes are STILL knocking 50% off Oyama 2010 folding bikes!
These include:
Oyama Bloomsbury - RRP £799.99 now £399.99.
Oyama East Village - RRP £449.99 now £224.99.
Oyama Lexington - RRP £449.99 now £224.99 - the one I bought!
Oyama Manhattan - RRP £429.99 now £214.99.
Oyama Midtown - RRP £549.99 now £274.99.
Oyama St. James - RRP £549.99 now £274.99.

I first listed this in March and all the other models have now SOLD OUT and it appears the are not available any longer on back order.

I ordered the Lexington (£224.99) as it features an Aluminium Alloy frame with 8 speed gears and weighs just under 12kg! It's a fantastic bit of kit, I've had it since March and am still enjoying it, it feels like a £450 bike aswell!

The Lexington is In Stock today, though it has gone in and out of stock over the last few months but once they can't secure new stock on order they simply remove the model from sale so it is worth emailing them if the one you are after is OOS and finding out when they will next be having a shipment from Taiwan.

Is 12KG not pretty heavy for a folding bike?
#2
See a guy using one of these to commute with his suit on. He looks so ridiculous on the thing. They remind me of the bike my Grandma used to have. Maybe it's just me but I wouldn't be seen dead on one.

Oh dear, its just a bike buddy.

From a quick google it looks like it is harder to find one of these bikes for full price than it is to find one at half price. I'm not saying that they aren't any good, but the RRP may be a little inflated. The RRP of the most expensive one is Bromton money!
#5
12Kg is quite reasonable for a folder.

Oyama launched into the UK market about a year ago and I think they've had a tough time marketing against Brompton, Dahon etc.

So, yes the original price is real but the distributor is probably just trying to get rid of stock any way they can. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that these are the last Oyama's we see over here for a while.

Still a good deal if you're in the market for a cheap folder.

Mine is apparently 11.8kg and no, that is light for a folder, its largely due to having an aluminium frame.

I'm sure I look quite odd at nearly 40 years old and 6'4" on mine but all the local kids think its cool and I've had a few offers off 'swaps' for their mountain bikes and BMX's. To be honest the thing I love about it is it gives me a big smile when I ride it, it reminds me of riding my bike around town as a kid, and unlike my racer I don't have to worry about cleated pedals and shoes and slipping into lycra, its just a fun bike for shorter rides and I can take it anywhere. Never had a folder before but it is a lot of fun!

This is not a new offer. always selling at this price since at least 4 months ago, I bought the Lexington for £225 in march,my opinionn is not a bad folding bike but not worth £450 retail price.

*deep breath*
No, this is not a new offer, I posted this in March but the HUKD moderators Expired the original forum because the model I linked to is no longer available and some of the models, including the Lexington, were OOS. I have relisted it with an amended page link that takes you to the remaining models that are available. Whilst this is not a new offer it is clear that the offer is new news to some and at 50% off is a considerable saving over what other shops are selling these models for. Now is the time of year when people are looking to buy bikes and there have a number of inferior folding bikes offered since my original listing at similar prices that I thought it was worth relisting as Winstanleys have received new stock and are continuing to get stock on back order for certain models.

I think folding bikes are priced higher than their specs suggest they should be but I think the RRP is competitive with other makes with Dahon offering the nearest comparative models to the Oyama range....

Nope - that's about right for similar folders too.
#10
Look like good value compared to Dahon if they're any good.,
#11
Not sure if anyone's interested but the crosstown is on ebay for £400

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250805478735

That's cheaper than anywhere online. Also it should be noted that if you want a rear rack for panniers that the fitting looks, and according to 2 places i've rung, the same as the DAHON. So you should be able to fit a dahon arclite to the back. I've ordered one and will post my findings on here.

Tip to the wise though, don't get the raleigh parkway lite. It's built from twigs.

That's a really good price, Winstanley had this model for £449,
#13
yeah it arrives tomorrow i think. As i say i'll post my findings on what it's like. Oddly the EBAY branch/sister busines of rutlands had it for 400 whereas the rutlands main site had it for 500.

Looks like a great spec at a great price. I had a chat with a local bikeshop and a lot of cycle shops are using eBay to outlet old stock though strangely some brands like Trek won't allow shops to sell their stuff on eBay.

Well it's arrived. However the box was open. The bell damaged and the are scratches in the enamel. I genuinely think this is down to the courier as there are also holes in the box, but that's not my issue.

Spoken to them via the phone and they've asked to see photos of the damage and an email explaining how it arrived. I have to say they, rutalnds were pretty helpful and will see what they say. It's a new bike, as advertised and it seems pretty good. If they offer to knock a hundred off it then i'll keep it, the fact that it's been opened and has some damage all be it cosmetic means for any less knocked i'd simply get my money back as i'd be wary of the condition of the product. We shall see what they say really.
#16
The box mine arrived in from Winstanleys was in poor condition and opened so I was relieved to find the bike was complete, undamaged and unmarked. I hope they resolve it appropriately for you.
#17
Well they've agreed to replace it. Which is fair enough. You have to chase the warranty team though which isn't great.
