    Product feature

    3. Drivetrain
      6 speeds with Shimano grip shifter. Shimano Tourney 6-speed rear derailleur. 52-teeth chainring.
    4. Motor / battery
      Electric assistance controlled by pedalling sensors and 3 pedal-assist settings. Motor torque: 26Nm. Battery range: 25 km in economy mode / 20 km in normal mode / 15 km in sport mode (distances provided for reference only, may vary depending on the terrain, the conditions of use, and the weight of the rider). Battery life: 2 years (350 to 500 charge cycles).
    5. Saddle / seat post
      Fold-down, height-adjustable aluminium stem for added comfort. Semi-raised aluminium handlebars. Seat post diameter: 33.9 mm.
    6. Tyres / wheels

    7. Brakes
      Promax aluminium V-Brake callipers provide powerful, progressive braking. Aluminium levers with rubber pads for added comfort. Braking cuts out electric assistance. Remember: The brake pads on electrically-assisted bikes wear down more quickly than a classic bike due to the weight and power of the motor.
    8. Accessories/Equipment
      Battery-powered front and rear lights with handlebar control.
    9. Care tips
      Tyres lose pressure over time. This is normal since bike inner tubes are slightly porous. Don't forget to check your tyre pressure regularly. Riding with under-inflated tyres reduces your battery range, requires more pedalling effort, and increases the risk of punctures. Before performing any work on your electric bike (cleaning, electrical or mechanical maintenance), you must turn off your electric bike and remove the battery.
    Product testing
    1. Composition
      Frame : 100.0% Aluminium
    2. Storage advice
      B’Twin recommends charging the battery after each ride. If it is flat, charge it as soon as possible. Irreparable damage may occur if the battery remains flat for too long.
    3. Product catchline
      The lightest (18.6 kg), the most dynamic (removable battery built into the frame), and the easiest to store, of all of our electric bicycles.

    • Battery is a problem

      John (United Kingdom)
      Used for More than 1 year
      My wife and I have one each and both enjoy riding the Hoptown 500. The main problem is battery life and reliability. I managed to get two spares after multiple enquiries and phone calls. One battery has failed after a year's use.
      Problems
      1) Why are the batteries not available online ?
      2) Even trying to order from a Decathlon store, they are not stock items and have to be ordered as 'repairs'
      This should have been sorted by Decathlon long ago - it spoild an otherwise good product
    • Great bike - poor battery

      Bought the bike for my wife last Christmas. Used it for the first time whilst on holiday in Spain.worked fine on electric the first day, but then the battery went flat and would not recharge. The charger is OK - checked with a voltmeter and put out around 24 volts. Went to the Oxford store for a replacement battery. The staff were excellent but unfortunately there was not a spare in store. The assistant rang around all of the U.K. Stores that supposedly had batteries in stock but was unable to get one for us. He is still trying (all credit to him for perseverance) and will call us in 5 days with an update on availability. My wife is quite upset that she cannot use the bike as it was intended. When it works it is superb - pity is didn't last long! Not sure how to review the product from the point of view of recommend or not because as previously stated it is great when it works. It seems all of the spare batteries in the UK are allocated to customers awaiting to be picked up. Does this mean there is a general problem with them?
    • Very nice bike

      Very pleased so far, the electric motor makes a big difference for hills and is very easy to use. Overall the bike seems very well made and the folding mechanism works well although it is not quite as slick as on some other Btwin folding cycles. Unfortunately it was supplied with an EU rather than UK plug and no manual, Decathlon should sort this out.
