    Foldable Mountain Bike $189.99

    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run… ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬

  • I'd be worried that the bike would fold up on me if I hit a bump lol

  • Credit given to Kogan for telling us the weight (many shops don't), but it is a lot: 19.5kg.
    You really don't want to be lugging that up a mountain climb. And it will need some strength to lift into the car boot.
    But for a cheap commuter on the flat, just add some slick tyres I guess.

    Consider their 20" folder at 14.5kg. Currently same price as the above MTB, plus a few bucks for "First" or free trial. Has been much cheaper.

      i'm riding an e-bike with 20" wheels and the ride quality is pretty uncomfortable. feel every gap in the footpath. and it has some half-arsed shocks too on the front fork which don't seem to do much.

      • The shocks are usually a waste of time - they are for big bumps like rocks and logs.

        The road uneveness is taken care of by the pneumatic tyres. Perhaps your are over-inflated?
        But it is also the geometry - you are going to feel the bumps more in a "sit up and beg position".

          min 45psi on my tyres. manufacturer recommends 50psi so that's what i go with. i have to stand up on the pedals for some bumps….bloody spine-jarring otherwise(!)

          • @tdw: Ok, tyres sound good. Wheel size and wheel-base does make a difference, but from my experience, the frame geometry and rider position matters more.
            If your are sitting up straight, you feel a lot more than in a "proper" racing bike or MTB posture.

  • Bike seems small. Would it suit someone 183cm?

  • Why don't they put mudguards on bikes anymore? Do people enjoy the dirty wet stripe up their back?

    • Vanity and Aussie weather. Bikes look more bad a$$ without them and notwithstanding the deluge two weeks ago, Australia is pretty dry vs say, the UK. I use a clip on Ass Saver mudguard when weather looks iffy or if there have been rains

    • Cause then they can sell you mudguards as an accessory

    • or worse, they include tiny ones that effectively do SFA

  • This is a death trap if used as an actual mountain bike

  • Shimano 21-speed MICROSHIFT shifters with alloy bar ends

    is it shimano or microshift? 2 different brands. i advise you to look elsewhere

    • Its probably mix-and-match.

      Microshift being the cheapy types probably make compatible parts for Shimano/SRAM just to get a leg in the door.

      But yeah, the low end Microshift stuff combined with a 3X front derailleur? Ew no.

    • Common cut & paste error. I'd go with the photos. Shimano rapidfire shifters, not grip-shift.
