Product Description

If you consider this just as a mountain bike, it stacks up pretty well against its competition. Dual suspension, quality components from suppliers such as Shimano; it's tough and built to last, and looks great too. But where this bike really comes into a league of its own is when you consider its incredible folding frame. For so many people, space is at a premium, whether it's storage space at home, space in the car, or even space on public transport. This bike allows you to keep all the fun of a mountain bike even in tight spaces.

4.0 out of 5 stars Design Flaw 7 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
I quickly paged through the instruction guide, to find it was pretty useless.
And used common sense instead. I assembled the bike very easily except the supplied allen key was the wrong size to fit the back rack to the bike.
It took me about half an hour to put together it was very easy.
Once assembled I folded the bike which was pretty neat but the design flaw is it needed to collapse the handle bars to lay flat to the frame of the bike but you cant without getting the tool kit out again. What this means is the width of the bike when folded is always the width of the handle bars. If it had the same mechanism as the seat, it would have been great.
So don't think you can put this in a bag and carry it on a train without taking tools with you!

2.0 out of 5 stars Heavy and awkward 12 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
This bike weighs 15kg. Folded down it is still an awkward shape and is quite difficult to get into the boot of my car (Mk 1 Focus). To collapse the bike there is the hinge in the middle (well made and very solid) and you can lower the seat using a quick release. That's it - the pedals don't fold and the handlebar stays upright.

Assembly is OK if you know how to fit/adjust the wheels and set the brakes/gears - a trip to the bike shop for many people.

Riding the bike is exhausting, the tyres are wide and chunky (I inflated them to the correct pressure) - 1 mile on this is like 10 on normal bike.

This bike is OK for occasional use (e.g. I took my car to be serviced and cycled back), for commuting think again.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD CHUNKY CITY BIKE 10 May 2012
By muckie

SUPERB BIT OF KIT!! I ORDERED THIS FOLD UP BIKE FOR MY WIFE BUT LIKED IT SO MUCH THAT I RETURNED MY (DAMAGED) FOLD UP MOUNTAIN BIKE AND REPLACED IT WITH THE FOLDING CITY BIKE. GREAT FOR TAKING AWAY IN THE BACK OF OUR CAR WHEN WE GO FOR BREAKS IN OUR TOURING CARAVAN. GOOD CHUNKY TYRES AND A STURDY FRAME PLUS 6 GEARS - IDEAL FOR OUR NEEDS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stowabike Folding Bike 26 Jun 2012
By Mike
Verified Purchase
Excellent service arrived sooner than expected well done.
Was impressed with the positive comments and went ahead and order not one bike but two.

After delivery we unpacked one bike at a time and looked at the Assembly instruction
that ended in the bin, manual was for mountain bike.

Other than that it didn't take long to assemble ready for the 1st test run.

Good value and good Quality well done.

1.0 out of 5 stars bit of a scam really 30 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
I agree with the reviewers trying to warn you off this bike. I bought it because I wanted a cheap bike for infrequent use but foldable, didn't mind too much that it was really heavy and slow. I took it to a reputable local bike repair shop because gears were slipping and the guy looked at it and me as if I had brought something smelly in. He charged me a fiver and told me there wasn't much else he could do, the gear-control incompatible with the gear cables, etc. etc. I was going to take it to the tip but instead left it unlocked where it was duly stolen by some unfortunate, and spent more on a better fold-up bike. Avoid!

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible bike 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I'm currently waiting for a refund on my bike. I contacted the seller about missing parts twice and only received the missing parts when I filed a return.

When I built my bike and tested it, it fell apart. The seat was unstable, the gear changes were awful and the back break was sticking.

After deciding that the bike was too dangerous to ride, I decided to try to return the bike again and get a refund. My request was closed because the seller thought I would be happy with a replacement. I don't want a replacement, I want my money back.

The service from the seller was not up to scratch - I had to push them twice on the missing parts issue. All of the correspondence from the seller were automated messages like 'The Sports HQ has closed your return request. The reason for the closure of your request is: Issued replacement without return'. This implies that my complaints have not been taken seriously.

I'm now working with Amazon on an A-Z claim as the seller doesn't seem to want to give my money back.

1.0 out of 5 stars NO GOOD 28 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
This purchase was very disappointing. First one arrived with a buckled wheel, then it was hassle making a complaint..the company was wanting a photograph of the buckled wheel..most inconvenient! After ten days or so, unfortunately after the Xmas holidays ..obviously this was required before christmas .. a replacement wheel arrived which was also buckled.
The whole lot was returned as we lost confidence with the supply of the correct goods.
