    I bought this when it was $189 delivered. It requires you to put the front wheel in and attach the front brake. It was very very heavy. Took me a while to put it in my boot, and it didn't leave a lot of room for other stuff once its in it. (I drive a Camry)
    I ended up sold it to someone else without riding it and got the 20'' one.

      All mountain bikes are foldable with a big enough hill….it just a matter of whether it's also unfoldable…..

    good value hard waste

    Is $129 the cheapest it’s been?

    Damn it’s $56 to Adelaide!!

    •  

      What's $56?

      •  

        Delivery.

    See previous deals. So horribly heavy, it costs $98 delivery to Perth :-)

    Spend an extra $20 for the 20" model - much lighter.

    •  

      The 20inch one comes with free delivery too.

      •  

        For me, only the 20" has "free" delivery, so would be a no brainer.
        I have that bike, replaced a more expensive broken Dahon, but am very happy. Great for city use, fits in car boot.

        No way would I ever go "mountain biking" on a Kogan though!

        •  

          But I feel the 20 inch is abit too small for an adult.

          •  

            @TomGum: how tall are you? i'm 5'7" and i ride a 20in folding bike

          •  

            @TomGum: People ride scooters with 8 inch tires. 20 inches is fine.

  •  

    I think the 20kg weight would outweigh any mobility advantages gained by being able to fold it…

    •  

      i suppose there are some people who just want to save some space by folding it down.

    Don't call it a mountain bike just call it a 26" dual suspension folding bike. I bought one when it was $210 with free delivery. Took a bit of practice but can now fold it and throw it in the boot in a couple minutes. It doesn't flex like some of the smaller/cheaper folding bikes do. It's heavy and it's cheaply built but a decent quality bike in the same category will set you back >$1000. I put some wide slick tyres and use it as comfy cruiser around town and some dirt tracks on the weekends 😁

      ….this thing is in its OWN category

      best to save up for something decent if genuinely interested in mtb…this is just a waste of money

      Got photos of the upgrades? I find there's a bit of sag in the front suspension. How's yours?

    If you take this thing down a decent trail expect your spine to end up folding just as the bike does…

  •  

    I got one when it was first released $200 or so. It's an okay bike. You get what you pay for. It creaks in the middle where the folding joint is. Solid though. It's just embarrassing when you cycle past someone with all that creaking.

    Definitely not an off road bike. Works alright to go from A to B. If you don't want to spend more than $200 on a bike, this is okay.

      How would you say this goes compared to one of those kmart dunlops?

      •  

        Funny you ask that. I actually have a an old full suspension Dunlop I got from Big W years ago. Just like this one, the Dunlop creaked as well, so it's probably not just this folding one, but fully suspended bikes in general. The more moving parts, the more creaking.

        I'd say they're about the same in terms of quality. The Dunlop weighs just a little bit more than this one.

        If you're tossing up between 2, just get the one that's the cheapest and quickest to get. If you get one from a Kmart/Target/Big W, at least you get it fully assembled.

          Nah I already have one, and was wondering if this is an upgrade. A bonus would be I can fit this in the car, it's got disc brakes, and the gears are probably better (for some reason I cant use one of the front gears on mine). On the down side I already own the other one :)
