Challenge Flex 20 Inch Commuter Bike - Unisex. 4.1 5 69 69
Good little run around This Challenge Flex bike is great for running around local to get to places. I haven't ventured into heavy traffic with it yet. It is neat and tidy and not too heavy. It's one little downside for me would be that the saddle is very small "childlike", otherwise it is lovely. 28 July 2015
Yes, it folds - but - Bought as a holiday bike and that's all it does. Might slip into a car boot, but then no room for much else - ok in an estate. Definitely not poss to take on a bus or train as it's heavy & awkward when folded - needs an Allen key to drop the handlebar tube as it doesn't fold or have a lock-on as the saddle tube does (or you take the T stem out which flaps about on three cables). No locations for rear rack. Build maybe ok at this price. Gears rotate elliptically, pedal bonks. Likely to sell it 26 July 2015
good for overall performance.need more strength on hilly area 15 July 2015
Be careful about the dimensions....... We bought the bike to fit into the boot of my daughter's Ka - having noticed that in the Q&A it was described as being "70cm X 30cm. (standing)". In fact, as the handlebars do not fold down, it's longest length is 110cm. The 'height' to the wheels is about 67cm., and although the 'width' of the folded wheel sections is c. 30cm., the span of the handlebars (right angles to the wheels, obviously) makes the actual width much bigger (about 62 cm.) In short, much too big for the space she measured. 12 July 2015
flex bike review Bought this bike travel to work. Saves space in the house with its folding, so you can place in the corner of the room out of the way. A bit heavy to carry around but its for cycling not for carrying. Importantly it is not a stunt bike but a bike to get you to your destination so you should not try and think you can use it as a mountain bike or a bmx. Recommended this to anyone wanting to take short cycles to work & wanting to save space in the house. 01 July 2015

Answer: 
Thank you for your question,
I have looked into this for you and if you fold in the pedals first, then release the pin that is just above the chain, and then you should be able to fold the bike down
I hope this helps

This doesn't seem to be available at all. Is it possible that it may be available for delivery in the future? It seems pointless having it on the site if you don't have it available in most stores.

Answer: 
Hi,

For reasonably short rides this should be fine, take a look at what some of our other customers have said in the reviews. I can also advise checking the inside leg measurement.

Thanks for using Q&A

Answer: 
Hi,

The Challenge Flex 20 Inch Commuter Bike doesn't come with accessories (except a bell)
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.

Answer: 
Depends what you mean by folding, There is some movement like any cycle handlebars, you can adjust the angle, height and if for storage you can turn them. The actual handlebars themselves though are fixed :)
