Great all-round bike

I have been enjoying the Riverside 520 bike since spring 2021 and it's working great. Just wish decathlon also stocked the XL frame since the Large feels a little small sometimes (6'1 tall).

So far so good!

I had been looking for a longer lasting, more reliable bike after realizing I have a passion for riding (I rode a bike a lot as a child but that was literally the last time I was on one). I had hobbled through about 13 months of the pandemic on two sub $200 department store bikes that cost me hundreds to repair during biking season. Finally I happened to be looking on the Dartmouth Decathlon site for bike shorts and realized they had two of these Riverside 520's in stock! So far I've put on about 800km in about a month and a week on this bike. The only issue I had so far was I lost power to the rear light and after a bit of sleuthing I found out that the wires directly below the head tube were broke, then upon even closer inspection they use a pair of male/female lugs that simply pulled apart no doubt when I had the front tire angled too far to one direction, I plugged it back in and it was fine! So far extremely pleased with it! Crossing my fingers this is as well built as they tout it to be.

Riverside touring 500

Delivered to the door. Well protected in box. Only needed to fit handle bars and check tyre pressures. Really impressed with the quality of components.Dynamo lights are a nice touch, especially as they stay on to a couple of minutes after you stop, which is great at junctions and lights. This really is a bargain.

New 520 first impression

Thanks to Peter Lazarus and his article I collected my Riverside 520 yesterday after ordering Thursday ! Mods made before first ride: “900” bar bag Btwin “spd” pedals Bidon cages Btwin 15l panniers. First impressions on a short moist ride : Comfort Wide bars Usual serious stopping power from hydraulic discs “1 by” is plenty with the 42 tooth being LOW !! Rolls smoothly on the 700*42 rubber Having size 47 hooves I’m delighted that I don’t clip the panniers.

Vyborne kolo v pomeru cena kvalita.

Kolo je dobre zpracovane.Vyborne se na nem jede az me to prekvapilo.Jedine negativum jsou ne moc dobre brzdy hlavne predni jsou tragicke.Potrebuji bud jine desticky nebo kotouc ale neni to tim ze nejsou zajete..na kole mam uz kolem 2500km a stale to brzdi hrozne.jinak vse v pohode.pokud nekdo hleda dokonalost musi koukat na touring 900 ale radsi bych si vylepsil tohle a vyjde vas to levneji.Uz se tesim na dalsi brasny a predni nosic.

Riverside Touring 520

Robusní kolo které uveze velkou zátěž ve velikostech rámu i pro výšku 190cm +, koncipované především na zpevněné cesty ( přední převodník jen na jedno střední kolečko ), nutné dokoupit příslušenství jako stojánek, úchyt na lahev apod., poměrně vysoká cena, vše funguje jak má.

Exzellent

Sehr zufrieden ! Sehr empfehlenswert !

*Actualización tras dos meses de uso y tuneado

Tras dos meses trabajando con esta bici, desarmando cada uno de sus componentes para añadir diversos elementos tengo varias cosas a decir. Para empezar la calidad de los bujes de la rueda trasera son de calidad desconocida por no decir mala. El cassette de cambios baila de forma sutil pero aplicando una tensión innecesaria a la cadena. Actualizarlo con un buje trasero Shimano Deore a tenido que ser la solución con el sobrecoste asociado y poner un adaptador para el freno de 6 agujeros que lleva. Los elementos del eje central son de calidad pésima, de plástico, y su actualización también ha sido necesaria. He reemplazado la potencia por una más alta, el manillar por uno más ancho y el sillín por un más grande. Al final, creo que lo único que mantendré de esta bici será el cuadro, los portaequipajes trasero y delantero, el buje delantero shimano, la iluminación y los frenos. Si pudiera escoger comprar sólo estos elementos y devolver el resto, lo haría.

Béquille et position guidon

Bonjour, J'aimerais avoir quelques conseils : - Quelle béquille conseillez-vous ? - Est-il possible de modifier la hauteur du guidon ? Si oui, comment ? Merci et belle journée !

Super velo

Très bon vélo, leger facile à monter trois étage pour le rentrer. Les freins à disque fonctionne numéro un.

Excellent vélo de voyage mais pas que !

Testé et approuvé sur deux semaines d'itinérance sur des pistes cyclables en France. Aucune défaillance, vraiment un vélo au top ! Je l'utilise depuis prêt d'un an quotidiennement pour mes déplacements (boulot, sortie nature, courses...). Je le recommande vivement.

Retour d'expérience en ville et en voyage

J'ai testé ce vélo au quotidien pendant 8 mois et 2 mois en voyage (France-Grèce). En ville, rien à dire, peut-être que le braquet est légèrement limité lorsqu'on cherche la vitesse! En voyage je l'ai transformé à mon gout (changement de selle et guidon). Après 1 mois de voyage, la roue arrière s'est fissurée au niveau des rayons (la garantie internationale a été incroyable, merci Aurélie!!) et corrosion au niveau du vissage des rayons pour les deux roues. J'ai eu des soucis au niveau du frein hydraulique arrière, et impossible de trouver un réparateur dans les Balkans. Un vélo parfait pour débuter et voyager dans des pays où les freins hydrauliques sont utilisés et pour ceux qui veulent une bonne base pour une personnalisation. J'ai été juste déçu lors de la réception en magasin. Le cadre était légèrement abimé, et ma patte de dérailleur n'était pas vissée correctement, ce qui a légèrement attaqué l'aluminium du cadre.. Mais dans un contexte de pénurie et d'attente longue pour avoir cette belle monture, je n'ai rien dit!
