    Cheap commute solution

    My review should be taken in the context of the price of this bike which, all in, was less than the last wheel I bought for my road bike! It's just about big enough for me at 5'11", has enough gears and is a pretty stable ride. Folds up small enough to fit in the boot of my Seat Ibiza. Ideal for short rides to and from the station and from car to office. Would not choose to ride for long distances (more than a couple of miles) but that's not what it's designed for. Pluses, 1/4 of the price of cheapest Brompton, not too heavy and can be rolled on one wheel when closed, comes with mudguards and rack of decent size. Negatives, I added an inner tube to the frame to prevent scratching when folded and a Velcro strap to keep it folded, have ordered a derailleur protector to avoid bashes. Price service and delivery from Tredz were impeccable, even including tools and a mini tool in the box. I would buy again.

    Heavy and a bit bulky but affordable, sturdy and comfortable

    I bought this bike to commute by train. I found it quite heavy, especially when I need to carry it up and down the stairs at the train station. Also, when folded, it takes a bit more space than a more common brand, but that is still ok for train transport. The 7 gears work fine, but I would have liked an additional smaller gear or two, to go faster. Not sure if that's any different with other folding bikes though... Last bad point is that it doesn't stay neatly folded and I have to put it in a bag to prevent it half unfolding and falling onto the luggages of the other train passengers. Now the good points: it is much much more affordable than more famous folding bike brands, and it looks nice and quite sturdy. It also has study mudguards and rear rack, which I find very convenient for commuting. The handles and the seat are very comfortable.

    You Get What you Pay For

    I bought this bike in July of 2016 since i couldn't afford a Brompton and wanted to see if i would stick with commuting into work. when it arrived in the box the handlebars where turned (as you have to for delievery) but unlike normal bike you have to undo the massive bolt between the stem and forks which not all of us have that tool of that size. luckily a near by bike shop helped but the stem is still a little loose even when clicked into place (but its a folding bike so it wont always be sturdy) the seat post had very little to no grease on it at all which resulted in zig zag scratches every time i put the seat up and down. once again went to a local bike shop and had more put on. then after only having it a month the folding pedal failed and doesn't stay in place causing a third trip to bike shot to replace the pedals with non folding ones it comes with a twist shifter which like most of them the gears take a while to change over unlike trigger shifters and i might be replacing that. the hinge itself that holds the main frame together seems quite sturdy. so that is a plus. and its good to get you form point a to point b. but i don't see this bike lasting much more than a year of daily use. over all the moral of the story is you get what you paid for and I never expected brompton quality build. but i certainly would think that the pedals wouldn't break and seat post not have enough grease within the first month of use if you will use it occasionally its brilliant and gets the job done. but if you need to use it daily and something a bit more sturdy id say look at Tern, Dahon, or Brompton companies that specialise in folding bikes lesson learned....

    Good value

    This is a good looking folding bike with a decent ride for the price. Like all folding bikes the ride is not quite the same as that of a regular bike, but still good. For a folder it is quite heavy and bulky, but good for storage and for transporting in the car. Service from Tredz was excellent.
