Broke within 2 days of use

I was hoping that this bike would be great, as it perfectly fit my criteria... It was a good ride for the most part on the first day and a half of use going to and from work - There was some annoyance with the left pedal not rotating as it should have, but that wasn't an issue. On the way home on day 2 the Right pedal completely fell off (while I was on a bridge....) The pedal had stripped the socket in such a way that I could not reattach it, so I walked home. I returned it the next morning.

Chain broke straight away

Bought two of these bikes. Easy to put together. Still quite big and heavy when folded up. One has been fine, but the other the chain completely snapped in half. Had to get a refund.

nice bike but too big

bought this bike recently and had a feeling it might be too big and as hubbie wanted a folding bike he's now the owner. Haven't used it much yet but looks OK and does what it says an the packet. I'm 5foot 4 in so I was disappointed it was too big - so any lady of average height beware.

Hello there,

The folded dimensions of the Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike are 99 x 60 x 83cm.
Having spoken to our supplier, they advise me that the inside leg specification of 31 to 34 inch is correct for bikes from 26.5” to 30.5”
The maximum user weight for this product is 80kg.
The made weight is 15.6kg and there is no rear suspension.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A

Inside Leg specification

The webpage still says "31 to 34 inch inside leg measurements." Answers here are contradictory: ... the leg size for a 26inch bike is 26 inches to 32 inches. I am sorry for the confusion this has caused. ... With the Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike - Unisex, the frame is 17 inches, which means it is suitable for a 30-31.9 inch inside leg measurement (one inch less than the 31 inches listed). Please clarify once again.

My leg measurement is 29" and I am fine (just about) using this bike with the seat at its lowest

I hope this helps.


I see this bike needs a bit of assembly before use, I wonder how complicated would that be. Does this require tuning and adjusting gears? Will I get any assistances for assembling the bike after purchase, as I am not really confident with my skill.

Hey Charlie!

I can confirm that this trekking bike comes without the wheels and handlebars attached. You will only need to attach these. No tuning or gear adjustments will be neccessary.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.
