Durable and Excellent bike

This is a great bike even for beginners like me both kids or adult. This bike is Foldable that helps you to save more space in the garage or especially if you don't have a garage and living in a small place. For those people who are keen for safety driving and don't want to be blind by the bike at the rear/back window/windshield, it can fit both inside the trunk or back seater of a sedan car. If u don't have car this is also perfect for you for commute even if you want to hop in the bus or train. This is also a gear bicycle that can be switch from 1-7. I usually bike in state parks and it really helps me with ease to bike on hills. And lastly, as far as I noticed this is also a fast speed bike

Expected better

Pros: foldable , easy to store Cons: heavy and most importantly Seat post is not adjustable . It goes up very low and is SO UNCOMFORTABLE to ride. I wish i could return it but threw out original box already.

Excellent

Love this little bike! I had been hesitant to order Tilt 500 for a while, would it be as reliable and durable as the kids bike I had for my son a couple of years ago in Shanghai ? For the price, I thought I could not expect a good bike, but actually, it’s a good bike, completely assembled in the package, riding so smoothly, and not heavy. I am 5’5, lift the seat post to the highest, it fits me well.

Great bike

This bike is great for the price. It’s easily adjustable, comfortable, easy to shift, and just a joy to ride. Wonderful, wonderful purchase.

Nice bike, stable and fun to ride

Nice bike overall and worth the bucks. Just a couple of things to report: - I’ve ordered online and received it with the drivetrain that required adjustments. I found it quite annoying. Why not setting up properly the bike before shipping it? -drivetrain feels cheap -Front brake super noisy -Does not come with lights But as said, overall nice bike, stable, light, small enough when folded, fun and comfortable on short-medium distance

A great product

A great alternative for a rider with a recent lower back procedure.

More than just a commuter bike

We bought this Tilt 500 and the Oxylane 120 in a Decathlon in Croatia and we are thrilled with them! In the two weeks we've owned these, we have taken them on two 50km rides and probably about 5 other 15-25 km jaunts. We were worried about buying something that would be uncomfortable and difficult to use on longer distances but they have easily met our needs. At no time have I wished for a "real" bike while exploring small towns and villages and running around town. We've done hills and flats but we avoid rock and inconsistent gravel just to preserve the tires (got a flat on the first day). My big beef is that Decathlon does not sell bags that fit these bikes and they are bigger than other folding bikes, so hard to bag. We have taken them on long distances busses stored in giant garden bags with bungee cords. Decathlon: please sell bags to fit your bikes :)

Great bike with affordable price

Good for commuters. Very easy to fold and put up. 7speed gears is a bonus so when you get on bridges you get a lot easier

Perfect for daily commuting.

Pros: +Easily folded with the help of a magnet attachment (included) that keep the 2 wheels aligned and together. This also allow the bike to be easily maneuvered once folded. +Folding process is pretty fool proof as well. +Come with kickstand, bell, rear reflector (red) and side reflectors (on wheels). +In Toronto: the bike can be easily stored on TTC bus's front rack. This allows you to travel with the folding bike easily from suburb to downtown and vice versa. +Well built and fully adjusted upon delivery. No need further adjustment (except for seat height). Cons: -The seat/saddle is not very comfortable. It's nicely foam padded, but the seat is too skinny. -Rear V-break is not very grippy, I need to break real hard using the rear to slow the bike down. Front brake is good for me. YMMV. -The magnet attachment mentioned above fell off on my 5th ride due to a loose screw. Luckily I noticed it and repaired it. You may want to check all the screws on your bike during delivery and after a few rides.

Love it

After testing the display bike I decided to get this. For a small woman I still find 13kg rather quite heavy to lift into my SUV. But ok. The seat is quite uncomfortable after 1/2hr ride. I want to get the memory foam cover. I hope that helps

Additional Product Information

Composition

Bike frame

  • 100% Aluminium 6061

Frame

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 boot of a car or in a camper... you'll forget your bike is even there. There is a mechanism to quickly lock the frame and stem so that you can keep the bike folded and transport it easily.

Fork

Hi-ten steel fork for greater durability.

Drivetrain

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".

Brakes

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

Handlebar / stem / steering

Steel low-rise bars with a rise of 60 mm 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.

Wheels

20", single rim, black anodized wall.

Tires

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

Crankset

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 bike is compatible with the TILT transport cover and the B'TWIN pannier rack for foldable bikes. Front and rear reflectors

Weight

Weight: 28.4 lbs
