"I got the bike when it was on half price offer and it was a real bargain. I love it.
I managed to put it together by myself, took me less than an hour. Don't know why people say the instructions are not clear because I followed them very easily. The only thing I struggled with was the pedals but that's because I didn't follow instructions (on is screwed on clockwise, the other anti-clockwise).
Been out on the bike loads and it is just great, OK the seat is not exactly comfy, I may invest in a larger one but it doesn't affect the smooth ride!"

death trap.

It's probably extremely heavy and not very durable, but it looks a lot more useful than the usual folding bikes you get around this price. Maybe for someone who wants to get a little casual exercise in a favourite country park, that is only accessible by driving to in their small car, it would be ideal. Not everyone needs an ultra lightweight super-strong mountain bike.

With a budget of £100 I think I'd buy a £65 bike from Asda and spend the change on a rack for the back of the car.

£35 is very cheap for a bike rack and some people might not have space to store a bike let alone a bike rack.

I'll buy one for the ex.

£100 is cheap for a mountain bike and VERY cheap for a folding bike. I wouldn't buy an expensive rack for a cheap bike - seems a bit backwards.

not my argument, but...

I wouldnt put a cheap bike rack on any car I wanted to resell as the rack or your bike will probably scratch your car badly when going over speedbumps or potholes!

OK! I give up! You guys win. This is a hot deal for a single person with a small car and not enough storage space for a bike and a carrier or who is too proud of their shiny car to put a bike carrier on the back.

Possibly a couple who could fold the back seat of their hatchback could use 2.

Link shows price as £199...am I missing something or has it gone back to original price.

Does appear to be back at full price which makes it a total anti-bargain, must have sold more than they expected when they reduced it.
