Takes a little getting used to the more upright riding position but it's actually nicer to ride, less weight on your arms and you don't get neck ache. Brakes are good once adjusted properly, gear changes slick but it is quite quite low geared, gear 7 is fine on the flat, can't imagine I'll ever need gear 1. Like the ergo handle bars.
This bike is perfect in so many ways, the frame is beautifully made, smooth gear change, comfortable on roads/well maintained tracks. But be ready for lots of punctures though. I've had 5 in 3 weeks and less than 50 miles of mainly road use. The tyres are very thin in places and the tubes are sub-standard. I have just replaced both tubes with more durable ones and fitted anti-puncture linings, an expense I wouldn't have expected so soon. If that doesn't improve things I guess I'll have to buy new tyres as well. Come on Decathlon, you can do better.
This is my first bike in 20 years. It took me a while to find a comfy riding position but I have one now. The ride is comfortable, I primarily ride on roads and only a bit of dirt riding, having the front suspension adds to the ride comfort. The brakes are strong and have good stopping power. The gears are quick to get through but I feel the bike is geared a bit short, I can get to 21mph and the pedals no longer have any drive. The tyres for me are good, they offer good grip on the road and gravel, I have rode around 150 miles on the bike now and I would recommend it.
first of all go for the disc brake version of the bike.I bought the v brake version and they arent so good and need constant adjustment.the frame shape is good for easy mount/dismounting.I have changed the rear cassette for a bigger one 40tooth.The front suspension is okay for light off road usage but only has 60mm travel so wont do for tough terrain.(remember to turn the preload anti clockwise to give fork more travel.All in all its a good all rounder which will suit for commuting or occasional touring .Advise also change the tyres to puncture proof .something like continental tour ride is good and cheap.
Bought as. bike to keep at your holiday home in Scotland. Thought Id get something really cheap. Took it out for a 2 hour blast around Mugdock country park - what a fantastic bike. Its every bit as comfortable as my Cannondale MTB, 1/3 of the price with a terrific single chain set. - with a brilliant gear selection. Compact chain ring, can get up almost anything. Only issue is that with dirty tyres it's not as grippy as proper MTB tyres. But for £279 its an absolute bargain. Really lovely riding position and comfy saddle. Gear changes are slick mans smooth - recently bought bikes with Shimano Clarus - this is a far smoother gear change.
Bought this bike for my 6 mile, each way, journey to work. Relatively flat roads so no off road cycling, but I have struggled with punctures. Bought in February, had 3/4 punctures on back wheel and now changed inner tube. Front wheel now punctured while cycling yesterday! I have NEVER had this number of punctures on any of my bikes in over 10 years of using them. These tyres are not good enough for what Decathlon are advertising the bike is good for - multiple terrain. I like the bike, easy ride and sturdy to commute with but the tyres are simply not good enough!
Reviewed this back in May . Liked the bike but found the tyres rubbish . Got 4 punctures on the rear on the first 520 miles and was driving me made . Decided to order myself some anti puncture tyres to try resolve th problem . Whilst waiting for them to come in got a further 3 punctures . So done 740 miles and had 7 punctures.
Fitted my anti puncture tyres and a self sealing inner tube on the back and have done 740 miles on these an NO punctures.
Tyres described as all terrain - NOT. Tyres are so thin and the side walls flimsy and this completely ruined my riding experience and was on the verge of chucking in the bin .
Thank god for the anti puncture tyres . No enjoying again . No fun having to walk 5/6 miles home with a puncture.
My recommendation to Decathlon is to fit better tyres especially as they did increase the price by £30 at the start of the year as I did look at buying this in December and was £249. But opted for a bike from Halfords instead
A little on the heavy side but it's smooth fast and great on gravel track !
nice all round bike but let down by very poor tires that puncture too easy and i feel are not suitable for a hybrid bike.
I had to swap my rockrider to this one and it looks so different, very light bike to carry and very comfortable to ride.
