I am looking at a folder for my wife, but she wants something of decent quality but not too expensive in case she falls out with it after a few rides.
I have looked at importing a Downtube Mini, which she likes, but i estimate it will cost me £300 at least to import one from the US to the UK, as they are not yet stocked in the UK.
So, I have been looking at the Halfords own branded Apollo Transition (£172 if you buy on line) and a couple of 6 spd 16" bikes by a UK company, www.bicycles4u.com.
I have read their customer testimonies on their own website, but i have yet to find some independent reviews on the quality of their bikes.
The bike I am looking at for her from this company is listed at £90 brand new, £100 with a carry bag and around £18 p and p. The pictures of the bikes look good, but I haven't seen them "in the flesh".
Has anyone at all bought one of these bikes that can give me an honest review on them before i buy please?
On paper they seem to tick all the right boxes.
