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

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

LIGHTEST FOLDING BIKE

Highly recommended. In my opinion, It's te lightest folding bike available. Easy to ride and can be carried on board public transport such as bus, subway or car.

Hi John,

Glad to know that you are enjoying your Tilt 500 14" Folding Bike - Silver. 
The bike weighs just 8.9 kg and folds small enough to fit into most car boots and does not feel too unwieldy on a public bus. 

It's a fun bike that can:
-take you anywhere.
-take with you anywhere :)

Sincerely,
Chris

A decent bike that is lightweight and easy to ride

The Goods - lightweight, smooth gear, effective brake, small size Areas to Improve - Seat a little narrow to support long hour riding (bottom ache!), I wish it can adjust the gear ratio behind for faster speed and effective uphill ride. **The new bigger model, bright green colored one can change gear!**

Hi Chuen Cain,

I am delighted to learn that you enjoy our Tilt 500 14" Folding Bike - Silver. 

To make your long rides more comfortable, I would suggest adding  the 500 Memory Foam Saddle Cover Size M - Black (Click here for the link), as changing to a wider saddle may get in the way of the folding.

The bicycle has been designed to be compact and lightweight, therefore it does not include a gear changing mechanism that could add another kilogram to the overall weight.

Do drop by our stores for more suggestions to improve your longer distance rides. 

Sincerely,
Christopher Chua

TINY BUT POWERFUL!

I just bought this bike few months ago and been using it every single day. I fall in love of its weight and how compact the bike can give to the user like me. It's super light, super portable and I love the matte finished of the frame and its color! It never looks old. The folding system is not complicated at all and it can go with me everywhere. Highly recommended if you are looking for something that we will live by in the future. It's also perfect fro small city like Singapore :)

I love this bike

I wanted a bike to carry up an overhead bridge. No problem at all. The bike is so light you can just tote it up and down stairs. Super mobile. Only thing is the magnet that keeps the wheels together seems rather fragile as it is held by a long thin stem.I wonder if Decathlon stocks spare parts to fix it if it eventually breaks off. Just folded it and wheeled it onto MRT. No problem at all
