The 2 bikes are as advertised complete with mudguards and pannier rack fitted. They are light-weight, easy to assemble and adjust and fold easily and we can fit both into the boot of our small car (Micra). They are comfortable to ride and we are particularly pleased with the 8 gears which can be changed with minimum effort. Overall we are delighted with our purchase.
Good fun to ride. Very good value for money with mud guards and luggage rack.
Quick to fold and build back up. I like having rear mech rather then hub gears so adjustments and maintenance are easy. Light compared to other folders. 8 speed gear just enough for what I need it for, although there are some big jumps between ratios at times. But nothing that really bothers me. Front end is a bit frisky compared to standard bikes so worth spending time getting used to the handling. yes would recommend to people looking for a folder without breaking the bank to buy one!
