deep scratch on the frame + uncomfortable seat.

The Frame has come with one deep scratch it wasn't showing until unfolding the bike. and the seat is very hard that you won't be able to walk if you use on the 3rd day ride. I'v had to buy a new seat Since i'v change the seat its ok now. The staffs are super friendly very nice very polite BUT unfortunately not trained well as it took 3 gents to put a rack on the back of my new bike.

Good little bike

Bought as I couldn’t fit 4 bikes on my roof rack easily. I got it for my wife to use on holiday , but it’s so fun to cycle I think I’ll use it more than her !

Ticks all the boxes

After looking at various folding bike options, we chose the btwin 500 from DECATHLON Only had it a few weeks but it appears to tick all the boxes and I couldn't be happier.

Brilliant

I've had this for about a month. I'm an 81 year old woman, and find it easy to assemble and pack up. The 20 inch wheels and 7 smooth gears are more than adequate for the road and pathway cycling that I do. It is not too heavy for me to lift it into the back seat of my small car, and only requires a little more effort to fit in the boot area. The ball and socket mechanism, plus two strong magnets hold it firmly together when folded. It comes with mudguards, lights, reflectors, a kick stand, folding pedals and calibrated saddle height adjustment as standard. It has two protective guards for vulnerable parts and a simple chain protector. Congratulations to the designers and Decathlon for a great value brilliant bike.

Really good!

Really nice and practical bike!

Excellent Value

We bought 2 (His & hers) - which fit easily in the back of my new Mini Countryman - for less than a tow bar & a bike rack. For the price, it's very well made and clips (& unclips) together simply & easily. I thought the smaller wheels would make pedalling harder work but to be honest, on the flat, you barely notice the difference. Also comes with 7 Shimano gears, that work really well. Went for the middle range model, and while it's lighter than most competitors, it's still strong & sturdy like a normal bike. I also chose a basket accessory for my wife & a pannier for me. Even comes with a little bell & small, simple lights. Suddenly, we can go anywhere without all the hassle of fixing and loading up a bike rack! What's not to like.

Worth the price

Easy to put together. Use it to put in car and go for a short ride around town. Good breaks and gears. Comfortable. Bit heavy to move about. But for what i need it for its perfect.

Btwin 500 Beige - Best budget folding bike 2022

First bike I brought myself: Brought for commuting daily 15 miles within London, this does so very well, however the lights rear and front are a bit tacky although lightweight and simplicity in mind, it won’t last frequent night rides. The front light runs out of battery fast and goes red over 30minutes use. The rear light is ok and is anti theft. Problems: 1) At first the seat post kept slipping down bit by bit but this was due to tightness of seat post not being suitable for my weight. It is therefore recommended to ask the seat post to be tightened. 2) The brakes on the bikes squeaked and were not adjusted properly on collection as when folded the bike didn’t move. However this was corrected by staff who somehow tweaked and adjusted the brake cables also removing the bike squeaking thereafter. Therefore it raises suspicion on whether the sound is actually new brakes as they often told me. 3) The original Btwin 100 (black) had the problem of the seat post turning which this model does not have at all. After having the seat post tighten the problem of seat post slipping removed however the seat bracket is a lot more tight and difficult to then adjust height especially when needed to extend seat post to fold and move / store the bike Positive: 1) I’ve used this bike daily around London, over humps, uneven roads, rocky surfaces and fairly small potholes - with no problem at all, the tyres have lasted a month now and still going on. However I noticed small rocks were now digging into the tyre outer surface. 2) The bikes moves smoothly and the gear system will give a pleasant speed whether slowly or faster. I highly recommend the bike and to get a saddle of 90 increasing comfort and good for long term health. 3) The bike folds well and neatly. It can also be unfolded in seconds. Magnets are strong and it can be pushed along easily. 4) Well made lightweight frame and good rubber handles. 5) Good online service and store 6) Great bike services from stores Overall I am highly satisfied with purchase and service from Decathlon but I do find that the brakes need to be better explained and not just saying that new brakes causes squeaking sound as explained it can also be due to tight brake cables.

Very nice bike

Lightweight and rides well - doesn't feel disjointed like some cheaper folding bikes. Never had a brompton so cannot compare it to those but for the money, I am very happy with what this bike can do. A couple of niggles which dropped it from 5 stars however: The hinge was INCREDIBLY stiff at first, almost unmovable - I had to spray some silicone grease onto it and fold it a few times before it became possible to fold it within the 15 seconds advertised. The front wheel was not true and needed adjusting - not a big hassle but with the price, QA was lacking a little. The front break rubs a little still but am told this will improve as it gets used. Another slight negative is its never 100% stable when folded - being heavier one side, so be sure to have it leant against something to avoid it toppling.

Very nice bike.

This bike is wicked! I really enjoy riding it. It's comfortable, quiet and nippy. I bought pannier rack and front basket ( foldable one ) and it makes the bike so useful. Gears are good but brakes could be better. Lights that comes with the bike are a joke - absolutely useless plastic waste not suitable for purpose. Overall the bike is very good even for a long rides. Quick enough, very nippy and make me smile every time I ride

Thanks to the Shimano 7-speed derailleur gears, the TILT 500 can easily cope with any gradient, and lets you adapt your effort throughout your ride (pushing off at traffic lights or accelerating in a straight line, for example) The Shimano Revo-Shift shifter is ergonomic and precise. Gear inches: 37" / 74".
