Review of Raleigh Boardwalk Lite folding bicycle
GH Raleigh Boardwalk folding bike
This review is now out of date.

Please see:

Folded dimensions: H 56 x W 28 x L 81cm. Weight: 11.7kg; 6 speed derailleur gears; 20" wheels; aluminium frame; adjustable seat; set handlebar height and angle; rear luggage carrier; one folding pedal; kickstand; front and rear reflectors; bell. Colour: silver.


Folds easily enough but the mechanism doesn't lock together when folded. It is hard to find a good place to hold when carrying. The seat is rather angular and brakes are set quite low on the handlebars which makes them hard to reach with small hands as the angle of the handlebars is set.

Tester comments: Responds just as well as a normal bike. The folding technique is easy to master but it is heavy and bulky so best for just one lift into car boot or onto train. I would definitely consider buying this bike.

Rating: 72/100
Price: £329.99
