Customer reviews and ratings

Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike - Unisex. 3.9 5 32 33
Good idea but low quality This bike is a good idea, but the gears are terrible (even after time setting up) and the gearing is to low (can't keep up peddling going down a downhill). Brakes are OK but have squealed from day 1, seat moves about even after many times trying top fix it and is far too hard. OK bike if you need something that folds, poor bike if you need to cycle far. 22 April 2015
For a unisex bike the saddle doesn't go quite low enough for females and the brake levers are a bit far away from the handlebars (hard to reach). It could also benefit from a stand 21 April 2015
It works for me I bought this folding bike to use when I am away from home. Fits in the car boot but is quite big when folded. Its also quite heavy but managable. On the road its comfortable. I don't like the twist grips for gear changing but that is a minor quibble. All in all it does the job for which I bought it. 21 April 2015
Excellent bike better than i had hoped for the price, folds as well amazing well done argos as ever 16 April 2015
great product Was a bit wary about purchasing this bike due to some reviews left but needed one that could be folded as I have limited storage and outside space. It's been brilliant so far and is used and then folded 3 times a week. Pedals are fine, one thing are the gears can be a bit tricky to select but as it's not really designed to go of "mountain biking" it's not an issue for me. For the price of this bike I'd recommend for sure! 15 April 2015

Can a standard seat replace existing seat

9 months ago
From previous feedback it is clear that the seat is uncomfortable and not suitable, therefore can you confirm whether a standard cycle seat purchased in a shop can fit to replace existing seat?

My husband has assembled the bike and I thought I would only need to unclip the lever and push it to fold it again but neither of us can get it folded. Is there something else we need to do to fold it.

Do we need to take the handlebars off again?

Inside Leg specification

1 year, 2 months ago
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.
