brought my first one was happy till next day the gears started to mess up i took back to the store the guy spent 25 mins on the bike to say there is a fault with the gear and offered a replacement so we wehn for the replacement had to wait 5 days and drive all way back tro the store to get the 2nd bike get home with the bike and same agen the grears woundnt work right and it was when they locked up the back wheel i could of got hurt so agen took it back for my money back
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.
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,
Good modern geometry solid bit lightweight good commute and trail bike highly recommend
Great bike i Cycle regular mainly on the road can’t complain thus far
Great piece of kit I have bought 3 of these !
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.
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.

Comfortable Bike great value for first mountain bike smooth gear change
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
I was a bit annoyed to find their was a black one just not listed with the other colours so instead I bought the grey one but it would have been better if you listed all the colours with the actual bike not seperate
