Update - thanks for the response.
Got pretty good response feedback from others on a couple of other forums too about this bike model, so went ahead and bought a Decathlon Bfold 500 today.
279 euros, inc free led front and rear light set.
Initial feeling after half an hour on it (after having properly set it up/adjusted brakes, drivetrain etc, and tightened numerous bolts, to put right what the spotty youth 'expert' had done wrong in the shop), is actually very positive.
Sure, it's a lot more twitchy than a 700 wheeled bike, but it's comfy enough for occasional, perhaps 1 hour at a time trips; the 7 speed gearing is certainly OK for normal road riding. Rear rack is actually quite substantial for carrying several wine boxes etc.
It assembles/folds down very quickly and neatly in maybe 1 minute, and it's light enough to easily lift up into the Luton overcab in our MH.
The only adjustment is saddle height ( the handlebars are fixed height), and the saddle stem is marked with heights, so will be easy for both I and Kathy to both use it by just adjusting saddle to the preferred height of each of us.
If it gets nicked at some future point, I suppose that at the price it wouldn't be the very end of the world.
Happy bunny so far...........
