Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike - Unisex. 4.1 5 57 60
Good bike good bike, seems robust 25 August 2015
A good value product An excellent general usage bike for a small or medium size person. Slick gears and it folds up to a compact size, ideal for transporting in the car. Only complaint is that it states in the manual that it isn't suitable for a person over 80kgs, but doesn't state this about the product on the website. This isn't a high performance bike, but then you would buy a different bike if you wanted to use it for racing or cross country. A very good , value bike. 07 August 2015
The bike is incredible, just as it is described. The bike is a little on the heavy side, but incredible value for money! Each time I ride it I have been asked where I got it and how much did it cost? The fact that it folds up makes it easy to get into the car! Who ever is the buyer for Argos, you have a winner here!! 14 July 2015
Good bike for gents & ladies. So good I got two Great bike for all ages so good I got one for the wife. Easy assembly It took just a few minutes. I did invest in a big bum seat for more comfort 14 July 2015

Answer: 
Hi Amro,

I can confirm that an 18.5 inch bike frame is recommended for people around 5 foot 8 inch - 6 foot in height. However, as long as a full pedaling motion can be achieved comfortably, it can be used by someone slight taller or shorter then these guidelines.

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

Trekking???

Hi I am considering purchasing this bike and I was curious how this bike would perform off road I occasionally hit forest paths and I wonder will this bike stand up to such abuse or is this bike predominantly designed for commuting?

Answer: 
Hi there -

Thanks for using Q and A.

Whether or not the bike would stand up to forest paths would depend on the severity of them. I don't think it's likely to last too long on red and black trails but would be fine for fire road and gently forest trail riding.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

All I can advice is that the folded dimensions of the Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike are 99 x 60 x 83cm. I recommend measuring the size of your boot to see if it can accommodate these dimensions.

Have a good day.

Answer: 
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.
