How can this happen

My first time riding the bike I was so happy. The second time I rode the bike my back tire goes flat. How can a tire go flat after only a couple hours of riding the bike. The description says it’s supposed to have anti puncture protection, so where is it? Don’t get me wrong I don’t expect the bike to be invincible but I definitely do not expect the tire to go flat that easily.

Elops 500 single speed city bike

Great bike for the price, I have used it for a few months and it's been great. I did swap the seat for something with more cushion and put on an adjustable handlebar stem. Gearing is good on the slow side but great for hills.

Amazing service and value

Purchased a single speed bike for the great price of £250. Wasnt expecting much for that but what i received was a quality bicycle made with care and attention, delivered promptly and with plenty of communication as to what was happening. Really cant praise you highly enough. Will be purchasing more bikes from you in future

Really good bike, even better price

Great for exercise/commuting. Really glad I bought it. Comfortable, reasonably quick, and so far it's been completely reliable. Only issue I've really had is that the frame/suspension aren't great with bumpy roads. It would also be nice if the handlebars could be raised. The delivery service was perfect too. Best purchase I've made in as long as I can remember.

Great little bike for the money

Bought to supplement other, vastly more expensive, bikes as a little town runaround - and I'm chuffed to bits with this bike! Simple assembly - less than 10 minutes after delivery it was assembled and being test-ridden. Perfect for little trips around town - my longest ride to date is about 7 miles, but perfectly comfortable, easy riding and I don't have a panic about leaving it chained to a lamp post while I do a bit of shopping... unlike my other bikes!

Great Bike for the money

Really pleased with this bike so far. I chose a single speed for the low maintance after years of contantly having to adjust gears. My daily commute is a flat 18 mile round trip and 3 weeks in I'm really enjoying the simplicity of it. My only grip is I've had two punctures in that time. As expected the tyres as on most budget bikes are not the greatest and I've now upgraded these. I'd recommend this bike to anyone wanting to try a single speed bike.

Solid-Fast

Had enough of paying mechanics to fix all kind of gear related problems on my road bikes, thought I’ll give it a go. Commuting 12 miles each way daily the bike is fun to ride, good workout on the quads and solid built with no problems so far. I have changed the flat bars to bullhorns which helps big time when climbing. Breaks could be better otherwise it would be a 5 star review, but considering the price it is a reasonable compromise. I definitely keeping my on the road for the commute and get the road out only for doing long rides over the weekend.

Great value

For the money, I can't fault this bike. Ride quality is good, even though the tyres are a bit wooden. Riding with a single gear is back to basics fun, the gearing is good for urban use. I have even used it out in the countryside, however steep hills are a challenge and you can spin out on downhill sections quite easily.

Excellent, Fun, Engaging, Value for money

Having recently moved house and being within a short ride of the town centre, I wanted a bike to ride into town and happily leave outside of shops etc. rather than get my carbon road bike out... Safe to say I have been incredibly impressed with this bike and it has put a big smile on my face each time I ride it. Set up as a fixie (fixed gear and lock ring was an extra £16 from Decathlon), it is so much more engaging than a conventional road bike, and makes an otherwise dull 8 mile round trip good fun. Handling is great, tyres seem to grip in greasy conditions and great position on the bike. I have found myself going out on short rides just for the fun of it. Well done Decathlon! A great bike!

Excellent commuting bike

Relatively expensive if only used for commuting. The bike has only one gear ratio but the entire bike is robust as hell. I have been riding on it for over a year now and it still works really well except for some rusting on the rear brake which makes it slightly hard to press the brake handle.
