Two things I would point out is there is no quickly adjustable foldable handlebar stem. So while there does look like reasonable height adjustment for the stem you will need a tool to do so and the bike handlebars will be stuck up even when the main frame is folded. Also at 80kg rider/luggage weight or less it looks to be a pretty much Chinese market spec bike that doesn't allow for heavier riders here in the UK. As you can imagine at this price all the components are pretty much bottom end. They will work but will need more frequent maintenance and are not very weather resistant so cycling in the rain may require more frequent lubrication like wheel axles, bottom bracket etc which will be basic cup and cone designs with loose or caged bearings. I've seen some of these Argos bikes out and about and one thing they seem to do well is rust. Any exposed steel parts may need touching up frequently.

More TLC required but it's about 1/4 of the price of branded models.
This looks like the cheapest folding bike with reasonable components. It might be £255 as there appears to be an extra 15% off at the moment but is still two and a half times the price and normally 3x the price. You can always upgrade the parts of the Cross. The weight limit is the real issue which could prevent use by a lot of people especially those considering buying a bicycle to lose weight.

Great deal. At 13kg it's not the lightest but by no way the heaviest
