Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike - Unisex. 4.1 5 55 58
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
bike Spot on does the job want i wanted it for good product 07 July 2015
Challenge Folding 26 Inch Trekking Bike I bought this bike to enable me to fit it in the back my Renault espace without it ocuping all the room in the car , it fits perfect. Also when it is locked into place to ride it is exellent , its comfortable full size bike, also when folded it takes minum space at home, I would recomend this bike if you want a full size bike that you can transport in a resonable sized car . It's not one you want to carry long distance due to size and weight. 07 July 2015
Folding bike I purchased this, unfortunately I had to return it as it had a user weight limit on it which wasn't advertised. I was above that weight. So I had to return it. 07 July 2015

Can a standard seat replace existing seat

1 year 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, 5 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
