Customer reviews and ratings

Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike - Unisex. 3.9 5 35 36
Returned Great idea. Fitted in the back of my beloved Punto easily. Mine was scratched at the base. Tyres would not pump up. tried 3 pumps. valves were useless, would not let air in at all. Returned. Did not want replacement. 02 May 2015
Nifty little bike! Very handy little bike to have! Compact, dependable and easy to ride. 27 April 2015
Good for Price Good bike at the price for my purpose, and convenient in that it folds up. A word of warning: After assembling it (easy) I discovered that the bike has a weight limit of 175 pounds. There appears to be no mention of this in the advert for the bike. 25 April 2015
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

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.

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

Folding Mechanism

how easy is the folding mechanism, do you need any tools/screw driver or is it just a lock/unlock clip.

Answer: 
The main folding mechanism is easy - flip the release leave, yank the bike up and twist to fold. Sadly there is no easy system for the handle bars, you will need to use allen key to loosen and twist.
The hard bit is lifting and moving the bike once it is folded. My tip is to use velcro straps to stop it flapping about.
