This bike has been instrumental in me getting my love for cardio back! I just put this in the trunk of my car and head out to any road conducive for biking....Love the upright posture
Do not believe the people who are saying this broke and that broke in a week...they know nothing about bicycles! i am 31 and riding and maintaining bikes my entire life... this is not an MTB(mountain bike), its a city bike, it does not have front or rear suspension since its designed specifically for folding... still they managed to make it 6speed, thats pretty amazing.. i have another bike (releigh rs500 MTB) which is 24speed and can climb any slope effortlessly, compared to that you will have to use more energy to climb, but like i said this is a city bike so its great to ride in the city.
Ofcourse its authorized spareparts are going to be costly since they are imported so ride carefully but the build quality is great, i find it better than my releigh.
When its completely folded it fits comfortabaly in the boot of Elite i20 so it will fit well in similar cars too.
So get this one if you looking for something convenient and transportable and fun to ride at the same time.
This is a good bicycle....I have been using it for past one year and the only issue I had was that I could not find the appropriate tire for the bicycle.....
This cycle is not at all fit for the Indian roads. I have already changed the tires , the rear wheel spokes and a few days back there was a crack in the rim . Upon asking I was told that the cost of a rim is 5000/- (a single rim not a pair) . For it's size , it is not so light . Getting spare parts is not easy . Almost every 1-2 months I have to replace something or the other .
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. We have had good reviews on the Hoptown so far. The bike is recommended for use inside cities for short commutes. The surfaces that it should be used on should be very similar to road bikes. All the parts mentioned above such as the tires and wheels are all subjected to wear and tear. The life of such components depends a lot on the usage.
The spares for the bike are all very specific and unique. they have to be sourced from another country which is why it is expensive and has a long waiting period before it is available.
I suggest you get the bike to the store from which it was purchased. Explain your usage and the problems faced and the store will be able to give you the best solution.
I am riding this cycle from last 2 month.Right side pedal had been broken in a week of purchase . and back side break outside cable also broken due to hitting leg while riding this cycle.This cycle riding is not much comfortable as well.bigger cycle are good
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. Apologies for the ill experience you have had with the Hoptown 320. The sitting position on the bikes can be adjusted dramatically and it can support varied postures. If the discomfort is felt in the seat do try padded shorts or a gel seat cover.
We have not faced problems with the pedals but I suggest you get the bikes serviced at the nearest store for both the brakes and the pedal problems. You may explain the problems and check if the store can service it for free. However, both pedals and brakes are wear and tear products and replacing them for free will be difficult.

For a folding bike weight should be reduced by 2 kilos and folding mechanism and are kept at very high quality .
I wanted to try out a cycle to commute to my work (3Kms) from my home. The road is little bumpy with some inclination and slopes on the way. BTwin Hoptown 20 suits the requirement....However, it would be better if the weight gets reduced by a couple of kilos...advantage of folding, I can keep it safe during my absence inside my flat without fear of losing it :).
Lightweight, and very comfortable to ride.
The only suggestion will be that of making available a carry bag (not the big folding bag available on Amazon) that provides protection padding to the bike so that it does not get damaged when travelling on flights or trains.
Thank you for taking the time to give us the suggestion. We did have a basic bike carrier a year ago. It was a bag with a shoulder strap which helps carry your bike on flights. However, it did bot have any padding. I will send your feedback to the product managers. Your feedback and suggestions help us create better products by understanding your needs. Thank you.
