I was shocked at how good this bike is
Took me 20 minutes to assemble out side the actual Argos store (but I am pretty good at diy). This bike feels, looks great and does everything it says on the tin! But the reason why I am so impressed with my lovely bike, is the value. You get real value for your money. My only downside is, if you are not fit, the bike is pretty heavy to carry (I am getting use to it). But I love taking my bike on the overground and if the train is packed - fold it!
Came with a Quick release seat and folding pedals. Folding mechanism for frame is secure, suspension is a little soft though and 18 gears make light work of hills. The only major downside is the wheels, the joint where the rims are assembled is prominent and rough which could cause excessive brake wear. Other minor gripes were the rubber handlegrips which were loose but these are cheap to replace with a better quality product and the amount of decals plastered on every tube of the frame
The perfect bike
Do not make the mistake of not purchasing this amazing bike, if you are a student, this is your best choice. It’s really worth the money and the delivery is fast. Great job Argos! Keep it up!
For a 26 inch wheel size you would normally inflate these to 30 to 50 psi. The exact pressure will certainly be detailed on the tyre itself - so you can never forget!!
Thanks for using Argos Q & A
