Good quality at affordable price
I wanted a folding MTB and this was not only the cheapest but as and added bonus it was a hardtail so l could fit a rear luggage rack (compatible rack on eBay for £14.99). I only intend to use the bike on off road cycle paths which at worst are a bit muddy and uneven. At 64 I don't need the robustness of a bike required by serious mountain bikers so for me this was an ideal purchase backed up by the assurance of good customer service from Argos as opposed to buying on line.
Pedal snapped off on first ride!
Yesterday, I was riding this newly bought bike for the first time and while pedaling, my right pedal got snapped on a road, and I got my toe injured. I had to put bike aside and collect that pedal from road to avoid any further accident as a car was approaching from far. I've tried to fix that pedal at my place but the pedal treads are deformed, so I can't fix it on the crank arm! While riding uphill, chain made weird rattling noise!
The tubes are 26” Butyl tube with Schrader valve.
Thanks for using Argos Q&A.
