Not had a bike since I was a kid nearly 50y ago. Needed something to get fit. Excellent bike, very light but tough. Folds easily if required. Gears change smoothly and good ratios for the hills round here. Riding position and saddle pretty comfortable. Well set up by Bromley store.

Why buy a Brompton?

At this price I expected something just good enough. Far from it. I used to own a Brompton but wouldn't bother now. This is an excellent machine and a joy to ride. I especially like the wide range of gears and smooth operation of them. Outstanding value. I now leave my full size bike in the shed

Love my b twin

I am so pleased with my b twin tilt 500 in florescent orange,its great to take on the train on my commute into London and fits into the cupboard at work so i don't even have to leave it outside

Great Value Folding Bike

Really pleased with this bike, performs very well over short distances (< 5 miles). Much more affordable than some of the larger brands.

Thank you very much for your review Evans, we hope to see you back in the store soon!

Excellent all around

The service at Wandsworth was excellent, quick, and professional. Arantxa who helped me replaced some of the brake cables because she didn't think they were up to her standards, and I was well pleased by the service. The cycle itself came exactly as described, and after a brief tune-up and some extra tyre-pumping, works exactly as I'd hoped. Folds up (and stays folded up!) easily, but has the added sturdiness and low weight I was looking for. Highly recommend.


So far am enjoying this lovely bike. I confidently recommed this for someone or anybody who need a folded bicycle. The gears are working perfectly. I will say no more , when you get one you'll thank me later.

Not easy to fold

I had to return this bike due to how tough it was to fold & unfold the bike. I never got a chance to test drive the bike, because unfolding was such an ordeal. The locking clasp to secure the bike once unfolded, is not immediately easy to use it took a while for me & staff to figure out how to lock/unlock the clasp. Instructions are not clear either.

Thank you for your feedback. We will share this with the design team as we are always looking for ways to improve our products.

We hope to see you back in the store soon.

Thank you,

A Great Little Bike

I haven't owned a bike since I was a teenager and, though I've thought about getting one in recent years, it wasn't really practical as I live in a one bedroom tenement flat with tight, steep stairs. There's nowhere to safely store a bike outside my flat, and it's too small inside. This folding bike is perfect! I can carry it upstairs with one hand, whilst holding onto the bannister with the other, and it stores away quite nicely by my desk. It's easy to fold, nice to ride and I was pleased it came with lights, mudguards, kick-stand and bell already fitted. I had it unpacked, unfolded and folded back up again in my living room (following the simple diagrams), then outside for a test run all within 10-15 minutes of delivery!

Tilt 500

Good price for an aluminium frame - a few struggles for me . I got a shop unboxed demo model and a poor explanation why I received it in such a way. The bike was certainly not properly checked - lights not working and I had to point it out- they took lights from another similar bike. First impressions…

Superb bike enjoyable to ride

A really fun bike to ride, easy to fold. Fits in car easily so removed the need for expensive bike carriers. Gears are perfect and it's ok even on slightly rougher terrain (gravel paths). I did get the matching seat cover for an extra bit of comfort having said that have ridden for 20-30 miles and had no discomfort. Whilst it's not as compact as the best known British brand it offers a superior ride in my opinion and has made cycling fun again, for someone who doesn't ride every day and used for leisure purposes. And of course it's a fraction of the price! A great buy so much so went out and bought a second one for my partner. Thanks for a great product.

I love this bike

I never considered myself a bike person but with covid I wanted an alternative to public transport and after a bit of research I bought this bike and I LOVE IT! I've used it practically to go anywhere in central London for the last 9 months and I couldn't be happier, it's light and easy, it folds super quickly, the gears work well, they let me go everywhere with it in the shops. I only changed the back brakes once and whenever I have a question (because really I know nothing about bikes) the team at Decathlon High Street Ken is so helpful!

Additional Product Information


Bike frame

  • 100% Aluminium 6061


6061 T6 aluminum frame — lightweight, dynamic and sturdy. The simple side-folding system using the lever means it takes up little space at home, at the office, in the trunk of a car or in a camper... fits into your life perfectly! There is a mechanism to quickly lock the frame and stem so that you can keep the bike folded and transport it easily.


Hi-ten steel fork for greater durability.


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".


Steel V-brake and calipers guarantee effective and progressive braking.

Handlebar / stem / steering

Steel low-rise bars with a rise of 60mm to adjust your position on the bike to suit your body and make the bike easier to handle. Handlebar width: 560 mm. Fixed aluminum stem with quick-release lock for greater stiffness compared to a height-adjustable stem. Distance from saddle to handlebar: 540 mm. Bottom bracket to saddle distance: 480 mm to 780 mm

Saddle / seat post

Comfortable, seamless foam saddle to stop water from getting in. Theft-proof seat post that doesn't twist. 31.6 mm diameter.


20", single rim, black anodized wall.


20 x 1.75 city tires. We have made these tires lighter to get better performance while retaining their grip.


The fold-up pedals reduce bulk when the bike is folded. Once the pedals are folded up and the stem folded down, the bike can be stored against a wall, and takes up very little space (10.2" wide). Cranks: 170 mm.

Accessories / equipment

Mudguard with stays, double chainguard to stop the chain from jumping and protect from dirt. This bicycle is compatible with the TILT travel cover and B'TWIN pannier rack for foldable bikes.Front and rear reflectors
