An easy-riding foldable bike, designed for the occasional rider.The Compass Northern Folding Bike is simple to set up or pack away, and a pleasure to ride.

The hi-tensile frame has a low step-over bar, making mount and dismount easy, whilst the 6 speed Shimano gearset will help you to cope with the ups and downs of your ride

It folds down to a very manageable size, which is perfect for stashing in your car boot or caravan, and easily carried. Due to the weight it’s probably not a bike to be used daily, but would be ideal for some extra freedom on camping/caravanning trips.

What you lose in weight, you gain in strength and reliability.

   High quality steel frame   6 speed Shimano gears   Includes carry rack and full mudguards   Weight 16kg

​I would say not looking at the pics of it folded.

the title makes this look like a half price deal, but their page says 'retail: £250, was: £169, discount price: £125', meaning you need the card and it wasn't at retail price anyway.
nice price for a folding bike, but a bit heavy.

and it's pretty heavy. for it to be useful it should really be a max of £10-12kg

For anyone who buys one, perhaps they could put the spec in a review on the site. Go outdoors don't exactly provide a generous amount of information. It would be useful for many I'm sure to know the maximum rider weight and more details on some of the components.

Also surely it should be listed at £130 for the bike if you have to pay a £5 membership card fee. I realise some may have the card already but the majority won't.

Absolute junk that will put you off cycling for life after about 0.5miles.

Far too heavy to be practical and very low quality components.

Much better off looking second hand for a Dahon or Dawes that has been looked after by its owner.

Dawes are just chinese imports now some of basic quality. Quite a few issues with Dahon frame hinges and their Ford brand folding bikes are very basic and over-priced. Many Dahon bikes sold in Europe are manufactured/assembled by Max.com in bulgaria. I personally think you are better off looking at reviews then looking at the product itself for quality of welds on the frame and the components fitted. When you take that approach many Dahon's look very over-priced with tourney grade freewheels and gearing for twice as much as their competitors. You need to be wary of most top brands for their entry level models at least which are often very poor value.

I personally think some of the best value folding bikes are the Carrera range at Halfords or the Hoptown range from Decathlon but not the 2 steel Hoptowns below £200 they both look abysmal in quality.

For entry level folding bikes I think the 'bicycles4u' models are great value.
