Customer reviews and ratings

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 88 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by :) very nice. 27 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well built design Even though the inner tube in the rear tyre was punctured (which was a quick fix with a new inner tube), I thought this was a perfect birthday gift for my partner. She rides a bike for work and had her last bike stolen, this is handy as it folds up and fits in the boot of my car for when the weather is bad (as she doesn't like riding her bike in the rain). 13 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bike My daughter loves it and so easy to store, It look great and ride great to. One happy girl 29 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not what is advertised Bought 2 of these bikes, for me and my fiancé, planning to just keep them in the car incase we wanted to use them, but they do not conveniently fold as advertised, you need to carry the tools about with you to dismantle handle bars etc, maybe not a problem to others, but to me, a major flaw, plenty of folding bikes of there that do not require tools to be carried around. I wouldn't recommend this item. 17 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amost pefect This is a great bike, although you need to buy a proper seat as the supplied on is too small. I returned mine, solely due to the fact that the handlebars dont fold, you need to use the supplied hex/Allen key to remove the bars each time or leave them in place and have a larger, folded volume. Big pity as excellent value 31 October 2015

How to secure folded bike

7 months ago
When you fold the bike up, it doesnt click into place or anything and theres nothing provided to secure it, when trying to carry it in a folded state, it moves around making it awkward to carry?

Also the bike doesnt stand while folded, sits very untidy as the weight pulls it to a 90 degree angle, am i expected to just hold it in a stable position when taking it onto a train for instance?

Answer: 
Hi Mike,

The Challenge Flex 20 Inch Commuter Bike will not click or keep in place by itself. You have to hold it. However, it can stand up by itself after folded up.

I hope this helps!

Given that the handlebars don't fold, can anyone say for certain whether this is acceptable on train, underground or buses - has anyone used it on such transport?

Answer: 
Hi Pete,

The folded dimensions of this Challenge Flex 20 Inch Commuter Bike are 70 x 30cm, and an example of what it looks like when folded can be seen in the image gallery. Unfortunately Argos can't advise on whether or not this would be accepted on various forms of public transportation - I recommend contacting the bus and railway companies you frequent to get their official stance.

Have a good day!

Answer: 
Hi Kayleigh,

I can confirm that this product comes in a single pack and you would need to fit the wheels and seat post and adjust the handle bars. It may also be necessary to adjust the brakes.

I hope this helps,

Carry onto an aircraft

Hi,

The Challenge Flex 20 Inch Commuter Bike ? Unisex folded size is approximately 70cm by 30cm which is too large for carry on hand luggage. This bike cannot be made smaller by removing the handlebars and seat.

Answer: 
Most definitely pump them up. And be sure to get a full-size pump to do so. I bought a mini pump at Argos along with the bike and it simply couldn't produce sufficient pressure to inflate the tyres at all.

It would depend on your physical stamina on if you would find this easy to get up a hill. I can confirm that this weighs approximately 14KG.
