I'm in the market for a new one. Was going to spend more but this one is on offer at planet x. Worth a punt?

My current one is massive when folded and weighs a ton, and I need to save space as losing my garage.

What is it like to use? Clamp good? Adjustability etc? How small does it fold?

It is probably hands down better than mine but as I have one already I want to be sure that it works as well and folds away smaller.

Thanks for replying btw.

Its cheap, its cheerful but dont expect pro bike shop quality - I added an extra bolt to keep it secure.

I was originally looking at this one until the above was on offer. Worth the price difference?

these are excellent - difficult to pick up but really good, and fold to a small thing in a moment.

Thanks, looking to get something ASAP, not got time to play the long game.

Its a wrench to replace my current one, it has strong sentimental value as it was a gift from my late mum, so if I replace it, needs to be worthy.
