An affordable mini-bike Raleigh Compact

The Raleigh Compact
I was in the Bukit Jalil area yesterday and found a bike shop called 'Joo Ngan Pro'.
Went in and saw a mini Velo hanging on the shop's exterior.
This is the first time I saw a branded bike that is priced below RM1K.
The model in question is the Raleigh Compact.
At a price tag of RM570 retail, its one of the cheapest mini-bikes around.
The overall built and quality is acceptable.
Both wheels are 20" and its roughly the size of a folding bike except that it doesn't fold.
The bike has a 6-speed drivetrain which is ample to cover most riding conditions.
If you ditch the components, you can build a nice bike with better parts.
This mini-bike is ideal for beginners who don't want to blow a hole in their pocket...
