Found 4th Oct 2016Made hot 6th Oct 2016
Recently reduced to £169.97 in Halfords, Argos now have this reduced to £149.99 & Free delivery. Will probably hold its value better than a Ford fiesta.

Will probably get cold because of the weight, however you will need to spend a lot of money to get lighter

Its not really designed for the Tour de France. However it will get you from the carpark to the office, as long as there are no steep hills.

Make sure you stock up on the waxoyl deal posted earlier anything with a Ford badge is sure to rust up in no time

you can get a 20inch folder for 130, a gnats cock heavier, plus doesn't pretend to be a car.

The description doesn't seem to say gear ratio but it isn't likely to so high that you can't pedal up a hill of 5%. It will get you round most cities for what it's designed to do

Weighs a ton. Not much of an issue for short commutes. More for lugging up flights of stairs to the office etc!!!!

erm .......
•Weight fully assembled 13kg.........impossible!

BTW there's 7 pics but can you guess the most important /obvious one that's not there?

not for any price in Halfords, it's sold by a third party through the Halfords website but nothing to do with them at all.

​I never said anything about the Tour de France, I have a folding bike & With the small wheels I think that having gears would make life a little bit easier, after all isn't that the whole point of them being inveted in the first place.

​Get you round most cities with hills less than 6%.
So it must be useless for town's with a few steep hill's then.

The girls in my avatar were not on folding bikes but took me 40 minutes to get by them !!

It's not easy to ride your bike once you've broken a semi.

​Well done for seeing that they weren't on folding bikes in the first place.
My eyes didn't get past the obvious.
Great avatar though (_;)

I'm still trying to think, what is so important that you needed to pass?

No gears? Good luck with the slopes

not so sure about that - the 2006 on Mondeo door bottoms rusted out (sealant soaked up moisture), the first model KA was at least as rusty as a Ford Cortina of the 60's (take the sills off and see 4x50mm spots of wax carelessly applied whilst the rest rusts away as lightly painted steel) , the Ford focus of the 2000's has serious issues with chassis rust......I spend time welding these up.
Surprisingly Vauxhall seemed to have cracked corrosion proofing......and Japanese built Toyota's last forever when the body is galvanised .
