Great bike if you live in the city and need to hop on/off trains as well as cycle. The electric assist is also great for hills as well. Much better than those Brompton Bikes!

Currently over £600 elsewhere, so this is a bargain.

£449 in white colour
£484 in black colour

Looks massive when folded! 🤨
Only for tiny Chinese people, not for a tall Dutch person?
Looks good, but what sane person would spend £449 with geekbuying?!
paid £444 for it last year, great bike.
Thanks OP
Tiny wheels...I like my bikes with big wheels
Hardly likely to slip through customs unnoticed , so add on import duties and VAT

Was that Gearbest though? I also bought my M365 scooter from them. They send it over land from Shenzhen to the far west of China, cross in to Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus and from there they sneak it in to Poland. Bingo, now in the EU so UPS it to the UK. Clever.
Love it,get fit,make the car redundant,save a fortune in the long run.

Not ‘much better than those Brompton bikes’ - bromptons will last a lifetime, are british manufactured and much better quality

Not for £2,600. That's just a complete rip off.

Yup, I was gonna say the same... this Xiaomi might be great, it might be pants, but "Much better than those Brompton Bikes" is a phrase only someone who knows nothing about folding bikes would ever say. Fantastic fold, ride as well as a full size bike, last a lifetime, hold their value incredibly well... Brompton are the king of folders and I don't think this will change that.

This is better value though, an electric brompton is about £2600 for broadly the same product.
Anyone cycling one of these needs to get used to this sound
They should have a bbw modelling the bike,instead of a skinny anorexic.

the internet price for this in China is 2999 CNY, equivalent to about £350.00
so only £100.00 for the delivery.
very fair price and quite limited profit.
The only issue is whether it has "Conformité Européene" or not?

I used to own a Brompton Bike. The best thing about them is the small size that they can fold to but apart from that I thought they were pretty average and ridiculously expensive for what you get. Also alot of parts are non standard which makes replacement parts unreasonably expensive. I think they're massively overrated.

The fold on this bike is pants by comparison.

Compared to playing £2,600 for the Brompton Electric, I'd say it's a better deal.

That wouldn’t escape UK customs.

The item left the train in Belarus. It is unknown how it crosses from Belarus to Poland. But once it does, it goes through Poland to Germany where it is passed to UPS, who forward it through their network to the UK.
Looks like it could be great for folding to keep in the house but pretty rubbish if you want to take it on the train (looks about twice the size of a Brompton when folded). Then again its about 1/4 of the price of an electric Brompton and 1/2 the price of a normal Brompton.

You need to add another 100 for delivery
Read some reviews in Chinese.
Be aware of the battery issues.
there are numerous reports that battery stopped working after half a year due to poor contact or whatever.
