  10. Care tips
    Tyres lose pressure over time. This is normal. On average you lose 1 bar per week. Remember to regularly pump up your tyres: Riding with under-inflated tyres noticeably reduces the capacity of your battery, 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

    The geometry of this bike offers optimal comfort for cyclists measuring between 1.45m and 1.85m. This bike meets the requirements of the ISO 4210 standard for a cyclist weighing 100kg.

  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.

  • Really good

    Used for 3 to 6 months
    I use the bike 4 days a week for 9 miles a day, mostly in sport mode but sometimes in normal. After a month the power seems less from the battery but has stayed consistent so maybe I got used to it? I ride main roads, paths, cycle paths and only find the ride rough on potholed roads. I can get 20 miles from the battery and then a little more but my route is quite hilly with a mega hill going up to Stockport station - battery killer but I can go up in 3rd gear now - bike is really good. Can’t really fold and take on the train yet it’s too cumbersome:
  • Good quality

    Further to my initial review, Peter Lazarus of Decathlon asked if I had tried to push it along folded on the front wheel, which I had. He has since kindly sent me picture and a video of how to push it along. This involves a balancing manoeuvre, holding the extended seat post and placing the bike at 45 degrees whilst as he stated keeping a 'silver bolt (on one wheel) between the fork and mudguard stay '. Not easy to do, the bike feels heavy as well and so not practical and this method is clearly not intentionally designed in. The non ebike folders can be secured, placed on the two wheels that take the weight and wheeled easily. Looking at the non 'e' folding bike videos the person demonstrating it folds and wheels the bike but notably does not wheel it on the ebike video.
    I think it would be better if Decathlon simply stated that this bike is not designed for wheeling when folded. It is good for folding to a compact size for storage in a car boot, room or luggage area provided you can carry or wheel it unfolded to it. In that way it represents reasonable value for money.
  • Joy to ride

    Used for 1 week or less
    Great bike, just a joy to ride. Would be nice if there were latches in place to lock the bike in its folded position. I know its more of a commuters bike but with no suspension, you feel every bump and crack in the road which gets really uncomfortable over the journey.
