MATEX BFOLD 7 Folding Bike £189.99 @ Decathlon (instore & online)

Found 9th Nov 2014
Great deal if you're after a cheap folding bike, haven't found anything else for under £200 with gears and also has good reviews on the Decathlon website. I had a ride on one in store and was quite impressed although takes a few minutes to get used to it! Good alternative if you don't want to spend £300+ on a Tern or Dahon.

Has Shimano 7 speed gearing and weighs 13.65kg.Here's the website description:
