Designed for travelling around town occasionally on different modes of transport (lift, bus, underground, etc.) while taking up minimal space.
A folding bike that goes straight to the essentials: single-speed drivetrain is low maintenance while delivering good performance. Lateral folding system reduces bike storage size by more than 70%..

got 720 just before christmas, been waiting for one for ages, they sent me email twice to let me know that's back in stock, missed first lot by minutes i think and snapped on the second offer. Nice little bike, clever folding design, and it sitting nicely here in the office corner now. Rubber belt instead of chain tho. Spoke to one of Decathlon managers before i got this one, and he told me that its such high demand for these as soon as they appear on the system they are gone in minutes. this is a mk2 of 720, as they had some issues with folding mechanism for the mk1, which has now been sorted out, i hope :smiley: i still haven mastered a quick fold as per video, but i am getting there. will upload photo later on.

For the money, that looks pretty good. Shame the pedals don't fold too.

Folding pedals are easily available and not expensive. Probably have them in Decathlon!

Do read the reviews though - surprisingly mixed for a Decathlon bike.

13.2kg, isn't that about 3kg heavier than you'd expect for this type of bike?

*edit* not an expert, heck I'm looking at getting a city bike or cargo trike for the daily commute, something comfy that can carry a coat/laptop/change of clothes/maybe shopping

I have a Brompton, it weighs 11.8kg. Due to its compact size you carry it with one hand. It is fairly heavy carrying it up stairs in train stations, and I would prefer it was lighter. I would not buy a folding bike that weighed more.

The interesting one was their B'Twin Tilt:
https://www.decathlon.co.uk/tilt-720-folding-bike-white-blue-id_8366184.html
£350 but it seems it's NLA. Not that light at 13.75 (Bromthons are 9.8KG to 11.5KG according to https://brompton.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203296361-How-much-do-Bromptons-weigh-) and that's with only guards no carrier, but it does unfold very quickly. They claim 1 second like this advert from Decathlon Belgium:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdVetM-IVhA
Think I saw or read something from one of the design team about them being very proud of the wheels being able to freely move when folded so you can drag it along like a suitcase; none of those tiny wheels Bromthon put on their carries required.
Wonder why it seems to have been discontinued? Maybe some issue with the bike or with the supply.

Not sure this is good value. Components look to be very low end and basic, reviews aren't that positive and its not like it has a lightweight aluminium frame or anything. Everything looks entry level at best. You should not buy bikes on dealer reputation but on product quality itself. If this was being sold in Asda it would probably get down voted straight away but because its Decathlon it gets up votes.

Even with no gears or fitted accessories it's still quite heavy and you will be walking up hills or moving your legs like some sort of demented epileptic on flat ground.

Also that bit that houses the front light looks hideous.

If you are going to be using this for regular commuting you need gears.

I've not voted either way but I personally wouldn't buy this product. Maybe at £69 but not £129.

The recent offer of a Dunlop folding bike at Sports Direct that was £85 plus £5 postage absolutely massacres this bike on spec and lower weight too thanks to its aluminium frame plus much cheaper. Ok that offer isn't available now but this just seems like the correct price or higher for a gear-less heavy steel folding bike without mudguards or rear rack.

Also if you look at £179 version with 6 gears they have cropped the images to prevent you seeing clearly that it has a low quality generic chinese derailleur rather than a Shimano model which even the cheapest competitors have.

These seems like the worse possible quality bikes than even Toys R Us would turn their nose up at. No doubt Decathlon defenders will come in and protest but these look like junk quality if they won't even fit an entry level Shimano derailleur.

I visited Decathlon for the first time yesterday. And yes FYI the bike is a good value, as all things Decathlon sells are good value. Not a bargain though as it is a standard price for this kind of product. So there's nothing to discuss really it's just stuff they sell.

​I just want a reliable folding bike to get me to the Jobcentre on time. But this looks like it will break after a while. Will look for a Dunlop one instead.

I shop at Decathlon regularly and this bike has been £129 around six months and probably that price since release so not particularly a bargain price.

I personally did not buy this model and bought the Hoptown 320 which is like the 300 but has six gears. I rode it for around 50 miles, changed the pedals and seat (you sit upright so a comfortable saddle dramatically improves ride comfort), decided it was not for me, and then sold it. Basic reasons why:
Fold is awful and not well designed
Still large when folded
Very heavy at 14.3kg, size and weight I really struggled to get it though doors and on busses. When I did get it on a bus, a girl in the disabled bay saw I was struggling so badly and offered her position in the disabled bay. That's how unwieldy it is!
Unreliable shifting of gears. I'm no indexing expert but I couldn't get it to work well. Manageable, but not well.

Good things are that it is robust, rides well and it's a Decathlon bike, which in my opinion is a good thing as you get their support when the bike fails. I had a bent seat post, went to Halfords, Evans and they couldn't help or said we can order you a Tern seatpost for £40. Decathlon said they can order a replacement for £5.50.

Overall, it is an average bike and I would consider around the minimum entry level for a folding bike. Any cheaper and it will probably fall apart.

As for folding pedals, Decathlon sell replacements for £10. Personally, I don't see the point. They can click under pressure which I found extremely annoying, and would simply install normal pedals.

If you do want to consider a Brompton there is a 24 hour hire scheme which I am considering to do just to see what the hype is about.

I liked the look of the Tilt too. It does look a bit overly complicated which might be why it got discontinued. It also has a carbon belt instead of a chain and those have a chequered reliability history.

As a side note, apart from the Brompton, the Hoptown's are the second most common folding bike I see in central London.

I personally think this bike is actually very poor value and best avoided but the B'Twin 720 mentioned above looks pretty awesome and great value. Certainly worth twice the price of the geared version of this bike.
