Not for tall people!

Shipping was very fast and the bike is very compact and folds down nicely, but the "one size fits all" moniker is misleading - people over 5' may find this bike to be uncomfortable to ride.

Amazing Bike! Best purchase of the year

I bought this bike to avoid using the New York City subway during Covid19. I've been using this bike everyday for a month and I couldn't be happier. I was a bit afraid it was going to be very slow with the small wheels but it's amazing. I'm 5'1 and 125lbs and I'm passing A LOT of fellow cyclists both uphill and downhill. There are no gears but for city use that's just fine. Average speed is 15-18.5mph. It would probably be difficult to go faster than 18.5mph but that's a very good urban speed. It seems that there is possibility to instal a front light but don't know how to get the light that fits there on purpose. Any advice?

Perfect for short commutes

Background: I used to use an electric scooter for my short commute to the BART (3miles) and from BART to work in SF (2miles). But found myself not really putting any exercise into it. Thus, this folding bike comes into play. 2 week review (commute every weekday): So far the bike has been excellent for my purposes. It's very ight so I can just pop the saddle to hang on my shoulder going up and downstairs (like a bag with a strap). It's folds extra tiny for the lead car on BART (no full bikes allowed in the lead car, most of the time I don't even fold it in other cars). The ride takes some getting used to, but it's a close of a feel to a full size as you can get with a 14" wheelbase. So far the bike has held up on hopping curbs, running over potholes and water in the SOMA and Financial districts of SF. The components seems good enough quality for a $250 bike. This is a good minimalist folding bike that is light, durable (so far), and easy on the wallet. Great for short distance commutes. The caveats: the seat dosent adjust high enough if you are 5'7" or taller. So you'll find yourself not being able to fully extend your legs on the pedals (inefficient pedaling). Get a larger wheelbase of your taller. Don't expect to go fast on this bike. The single speed gear is conservative and good for about 12-13 mph max on flat ground with a consistent cadence. Probably good for most people. Tips:- bring an extra wrench on your rides as there is no quick release for the wheels. Good for keeping your wheels secure from theft, but not as easy to take off if you need to change the tube. -Frame has a built in handle to carry while in folded mode. - while folding for transport. Fold the stem "inward" to where the bike frame (when foldered) can hang on the stem. This keeps things from flopping around in fold mode. - comes with fenders

excellent handling & light, superb Deca Bekasi

Price: almost half price of the 14" famous brand with this 500xs heavier. Alhamdulillah bought this as amazing disc 10% by app during last Raya. Design for simple handling, weight less, effortless pedaling and agile maneuvering Improvement: 1. as requires quite abit of strength to fold and unfold the bike. more lubricant/grease prior handover will be perfect. 2. more detail check-list of accessories/gear installed, as it will be helpful for your further claim 3. right-left break level assignment for front- rear, it may also in checklist to ask the customer what they want as it may custom due to person or region/nation. I would like to express my appreciation for the Decathlon Bekasi that has responsive and prolong effort in providing the complete happiness of my 500xs

Love this - super light weight

Love this bike. Super light weight so it's easy to bring around. But note that the small 14" wheel takes some getting use to.

Lightweight and Durable

This is my 2nd folding bike and this is super light compared to the Atomic Neon. It's a bit hard to fold and unfold at first, but maybe once you use it daily it will adjust.

My First Bike

For a first timer, I'm enjoying this bike. I have no problems with it, and it's simple enough to fold. It's a bit difficult to ride uphill though

Great bike with a problem

This is an excellent bike. Its light, easy to carry and quite durable. Its fixed gear so slightly more effort is required up slopes. Be warned though, the low center of gravity for this bike means that if your seat is pulled up too high and you ride up the slope while seated, you will flip over on your back.

I had some initial problems with this bicycle as the rear tyre blew out thrice in 48 hours before the service staff at Decathlon identified the source of the problem. Having said that, they had been apologetic and genuinely tried to solve the problem. Anyway, I have now been using the bicycle for a few months. From short commute rides (like 4km) to my Saturday morning rides along sidewalks, park connectors and some road (it is in the quieter early hours of the morning) for about 30km. This bike rides really smoothly although be warned that its lack of gears will really be obvious on any incline over 5 degrees. If you plan on regularly riding routes with more than a couple of uphills, I recommend a bicycle with gears. But for my purpose, this bike is perfect. The gentle inclines are fine with some momentum and the handling is solid. My average speed over a long ride is about 17km/h and I have maxed out at about 24km/h. Note, though, that this can result in a little instability as one is furiously pedalling. The bicycle is also light and just about compact enough for me to take the bus home after my Saturday morning ride and breakfast. It is super easy to fold and I can do it in well under a minute. Would I recommend this bicycle to someone who likes portability and easy-going rides? DEFINITELY.

a nifty bike for crowded pavements

Wheel size does not allow for going fast but light weight and nimble size allows you to move along sidewalks and Park Connectors easily and carry up and down stairs. Good bike for exploring cos you can just easily fold and put into grab, taxi or mrt if you went too far and are tired.
