Rockrider review

Had mine a month now , from the Nottingham store . Very poor set up , got it out the car and pushing round to the shed the bottom mech rotated around the frame tube into the rear wheel ! Sorted it myself rather than a round trip back up the M1 . Front brake continues to squeak as wheel rotates , very annoying ! Gear change is not a patch on my old Rockrider which i used for 12 years . Disappointed . Wont be buying another , but i will put up with it for commuting and occasional Peak trails .

Great build shockingly badly built in store

This is a great spec bike for money. The build was so bad my son fell off straight away as the handlebars was adjusted so badly. The brakes and the seat both needed aligning too. Has put us off buying another. As long as you can adjust these things it’s great but not if you get one like ours.

Shockingly poor quality

Bougth this bike for my 12 yo son ( against advised from Decathlon technical staffs who warned me about the fragility of the derailleur), was send home with a “See you in 3 months”...Straight home, my son went to the local park and 30 min within his outing, the derailleur broke...he came home late, carrying the bike....Very unsafe bike, complete lack of care by Decathlon who doesn’t monitor/react to feedback from their own technical staffs....Thank you to the Harlow cycling staff, shame on Decathlon for carrying on selling this bike...

I'm sorry to read that you had issues with the derailleur on this bike. All of the parts are selected have been tested by external specialists and undergo rigorous testing before being selected for our bikes. It may be that there was a fault with your particular derailleur and if it was a manufacturing issue, your local store will replace it under warranty for up to 2 years from the date of purchase.
I will contact the local store to get feedback on the matter.

I'm very sorry to read of your poor store experience with this bike.  The gears should work with no issues. Whilst it's important not to cross the chain (small chainring, smallest sprockets and largest chainring and largest sprockets) they should shift and work with no issues. I'm sorry that the local store was not able to resolve these issues for you.

Very good bike

I bought this bike as a general ride around. For the money, it is well made and looks good. The gears are nice and easy to see and use too.

Great bike love it

Bought one of these 3 years ago and love it. Admittedly I'm not using it as a mountain bike instead I've put some 1.5 road tyres on it, mud guards, pannier rack mirrors etc and use it as a touring bike. So far I've done over 3000 miles on the bike including an 800 mile 8 day tour from Switzerland to the Hook of Holland. Had a couple of issues the axle worked loose on the back wheel causing a woble and the derailleur to jump gears but got it sorted in store over 1500 miles ago and still OK. Recently developed a but lateral movement in the bottom bracket which is being looked at now. But considering the mileage I think we can put that down to fair wear and tear, and a new bottem bracket fitted is less than £40,

Gear stopped to work

1st the bike seemed okay. But then later I realized that it was nearly impossible to get it to 3rd gear. Changing gears is often really hard as it gets stuck. Today when riding the bike I changed from 2nd to 1st gear, the chain fell off from the bike and as I was surprised I nearly crashed into a car. I try to quickly fix it on the side of the road by putting it back to the proper place. It worked for 10 minutes, but then I realized that whenever I try to change to any other gear some parts of the front gear shift blocks the tire hence it does not rotate. I called my nearest Decathlon where they told me that my only option is to go there. This means that I will have to walk 2 hours. For a bike that I used for around 20 hours so far. I will demand a full refund and never buy at Decathlon again.

Dear Sir,
Thank you for taking the time to review your bike. As with many new bikes, the gear cables can stretch a little and for this reason we offer free checkups for customers in store within the first three months. This irons out any adjustment issues to be sure you have many miles of smooth riding ahead. Your local workshop will discuss this with you directly.

Decent bike

2nd time buying this bike, really smooth, however at the start some visits to decathlon are needed in order to tackle some noises and some problems with the chain, but they manage to fix them appropriately & after that it’s a pleasure to ride, would highly recommend

Low bottom bracket: helps keep the mountain bike stable in turns, and makes it easier to place foot on the ground. Open steering angle (69.5°): keeps mountain bike stable while riding. Short rear wheel base: bicycle is easy to turn.
