In one and a half hours this will be last year's model
I have to agree that it'll be pretty unpleasant to ride, but it'll get you there. I've got a similar spec thing that I picked up second hand for £70. It started with six gears but now has 1-3 and 6 (I seem unable to adjust it to bring everything back into line). The gear range isn't wide enough on mine and this one doesn't seem easy either, bottom gear at 70rpm gets you 7mph, top gear at 70rpm gets you 14mph. It's also heavy and is more of a bike that can fit in a car boot than one you could take on the train with you.

Interesting story - but since no one knows what you're taking about.......................................

tbh I don't know much about it either, I know the derraileur is shimano TZ (matching this deal) and I know the bike itself is a probike enfold.

To summarise it all though: This bike is a bit rubbish, do not buy. If you need a folder look for smaller wheels and better gears. If you want an alright cheap bike, get the Carrera Axle deal that's around at the moment.
