Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike - Unisex. 3.7 5 15 15
Good everyday bike My partner uses this bike everyday to get to work & back it is very handy because it folds up nicely to go into the boot of the car when he finishes late and cycles directly to the pub. The folding is not as easy as is seems, but is manageable,e especially when you are used to it. For the cost it is a good everyday bike 09 September 2014
Quite Impressed Feels just like a normal mountain bike , but folds neatly in half and fits snugly into the boot of my focus . Came complete with a bell, front and rear reflectors and folding pedals , Seat seems fine . Was a bit of a handful trying to get it into my boot for the first time , as it kept opening out , so I have now added a strap to keep it securely folded . The locking mechanism seems very sturdy. Am looking forward to giving it a good trial asap . Ps. I think it it a bagain . 03 September 2014
Basic, but sturdy Assembly is easy enough for anyone with basic D.I.Y. I have had it out on the commute, it folds easy enough without much difficulty. The bad points: The brakes especially in the wet!! The gears needed adjusting So be prepared for a few minor upgrades, brakes, possible front derailleur as the Sunrun supplied is week and mudguards I would recommend as it's faster than the small wheeled folders, handles well, folds easy 29 August 2014
Just the job Excellent purchase. Easy to put together with easy to read instructions. Only downside is no Argos store in the whole of the UK has another that I can purchase for my wife. If it does become available I would thoroughly recommend this product. 08 July 2014
challenge folded bike very strong bike, easy riding, easy to transport. the seat very to hard, have to change it completely could come with a pump, but I would recommend it. 25 June 2014

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

7 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.

Hello there,

I would advise checking with the Train company that you would be using as some trains have bike racks, storage areas etc that you could use but some may not.

Answer:
The bike I recieved (May 2014) included folding pedals. Just press in the release button on the inside of the pedal.
It doesnt make a lot of difference to the size, but its something. The biggest part is the handle bars - the only way to fold these is to use the allen key to release and lock everytime you use the bike
