Questions & Answers

Look for product information, frequently asked questions, opinions...

Question:

Can I swap these flat handle bars to drop bars? Using a third party brand?

Answer:

For sure you can, but that typically also envolves replacing the shift and brake levers.

Question:

Why didn't decathlon and rear hanger on this bike? If the origional price was indeed 900 dollars a rear hanger couldn't have impacted profit on a sale that drastically.

Answer:

Unfortunately this model was speced without a replacable rear dearaileur hanger. The Cost is driven by the aggregate of the components, in an effort to create the best value this is, unfortunately a production decision, but I have to agree...it would have been nice.

Question:

If I pick up in Oakland will the bike come assembled?

Answer:

Unfortunately not, but they do come about 95% assembled. So the assembly should take you about 15 minutes or less

Question:

What is the maximum size of tires I can fit to this bicycle

Answer:

This bike can take up to a 700x36mm tires - prehaps up to a 38 if it does not have knobbies

Good for a recovery after a 25-year hiatus.

I'm rediscovering road cycling, aiming to do light backpacking, that's why I took this straight handlebar. I'm thinking of adding a luggage rack, a front bag, 2 water bottle holders, and two horns on the handlebars. I would have preferred a smaller tray, because at the mini 34x34 it's a little big, but it works. I went off the rails twice when going from the small to the large chainring, but everything seems to be well adjusted, perhaps we need to take it more slowly. product that does the job. Decath should offer bikepacking packs, Oh yes, I'm 1.80 tall, the site recommends an M, having tried both, it would definitely be an L,

Perfect

a real pleasure to ride with it, versatile, comfortable, light, nothing to complain about

Nice bike

I bought this bike a year ago and I can tell you that I made a big mistake. After the first 6 months the problems started to show and I had to repair this bike for various problems like gears, brakes, tires, tubes and other parts. You should spend the money on something other than this crap.

Excellent bike

Very pleasant to use for commuting to work every day

Triban rc120

The price is fine for you. Brake adjustment after 2,000 km. The seat is uncomfortable, I replaced it with a memory foam tourer, but who cares. The tire was flat after 1,500 km and buckled. But don't expect more from a basic tire. It's okay compared to other brands.

good

Great bike, shipping took too long

Great bike for…

Great bike for commuting, possibility of adapting gravel tires which makes it a very versatile bike.

Overall amazing bike for the price.

It is very good for both going up and downhill where you want to gain speed. The street fighter style handlebars make it incredibly manageable. I have an MTB with flat handlebars, wider than the handlebars on this bike, and the control, while great (it is an MTB) is not as responsive as that of the Triban RC 120. flat handlebar, which has the ideal width for handling on the road that seems unmatched to me in that sense. The only defect is that the rear derailleur can bend if you hit it or have a problem with the transmission. One of the best purchases of my life for that price.

Perfect

honestly, super bike for both asphalt and simple dirt (I changed the tyres)

A good choice

I switched to this bike after 20 years of pedaling a 26" MTB bike with road tires. After 750 km of pedaling through Bucharest, the impression is very good. It changes gears well. It's a bit strange the 4-position shifter at two sheets. Brakes are effective, a bit squealing. I oscillated between a straight handlebar and a horned one, the straight one suits me better. Very good grip in the wet, on the straight and in the curves. You feel all the bumps due to the tires at 6 atm. The bike came unadjusted. Very good weight. Goes well without mudguards and on wet asphalt.

Great set, balanced bike

Good dynamics and driving, the brakes are very good. The exchange rate is very responsive. The only thing that I don't like is the graphics being painted, I would like to be able to remove it and have a bike without orange effects

Very good product, I am very satisfied, the only problem is the trays cannot be dismantled. Sincerely

Good bike for a small budget

My opinion after about 8 months. I was looking for a bike for every day (vélotaf and other), fun, to pedal 70% of the time in town. I don't regret this choice: road bike and straight handlebars (in town more practical than a drop bar). Still, I regret not having been able to spend 200€ more for the superior model, the Microshift mechanical part does the job, but clearly lacks precision and it rattles compared to Shimano and it sings more (even after adjustment, the mine or that of the Decat mechanic). You shouldn't ask too much of him in terms of abrupt and rapid reactivity either. However, is this a disaster in daily use? No, it runs well and we have fun once we get used to the beast. The saddle is OK. The cockpit is comfortable, we appreciate the horns to change posture, less the ergonomic handles (not my thing). RAS on the brake part, except the rear brake which loosened a lot until the cable was on the verge of breaking completely (2 wires remained on the cable; free change carried out by the cycle workshop). Note that adjusting the positions of the brake handles and especially the derailleur levers in relation to your fingers is strongly recommended. This allowed me to largely resolve the problem of precision of the derailleur levers on this bike. Good size hanger for sneaking around. The 28 width of the tire is perfect for the city, a good compromise between good riding and comfort, but those supplied lack grip on descents or on wet surfaces (no surprise). I also like the weight for lifting it. In the end I will upgrade it (already starting with the pedals) and I don't regret my purchase, only not being able to spend €1000 on a bike all at once. Despite these current flaws I know that he will take me far. Anyway I gave it a name, I can't abandon it like that. NB: Decathlon support is not great, instead of videos I would prefer a good PDF (in French plz) with all the information on my purchased bike and how to make adjustments and other repairs. EX1: to adjust/remove the brake pad instead of your video which does not correspond to the model, I had to watch a video from an Italian mechanic (thanks to him). EX2: I came across other owners of the bike who, like me, at first did not understand that despite 2 chainrings, the front derailleur does have 3 positions. Yes sorry not sorry but despite my practice of mountain biking (3 chainrings: 3) I am not at all up to date on bike mechanics (now yes :'D). So since no one in the store informs us, good documentation can save us. EX3: see above derailleurs adjustment.
