    • NOT WORTH THE MONEY

      Used for 7 to 12 months
      I bought this bike for my sons birthday march 2017 and had nothing but problems with changing the gears and chain coming off so much so now after a short time of using the bike its now unusable whilst out riding one day his chain came off after changing gear it got caught and now the chain is bent amd the deraliur has completely snapped after 7 short months of using it for the price its not worth buying
      Response of the brand
      Please feel free to return this bike to one of our store workshops as a few simple adjustments may well resolve all of the issues. Gearing cables can stretch and require adjustment within the first few weeks. I'm sorry to read that you've had issues with the bike, I can appreciate that poor gearing can make it an unpleasant ride.
      Regards
      Peter, National Cycling Manager, DECATHLON

      I bought this bike on the reviews . As with other reveiws the chain did come. Thought this might be a simple fix but ended up £75 for a local bike shop to fix. Decathlon did offer a fix but as I was to far the nearest decathlon shop it would have taken at least two weeks for the fix and return. >unfortunatly that was way to long as bike needed every day. Other than that it is an excellent bike for the money.

      Unbelievable bike for the price, had no issues on any terrain. Even friends with bikes from the much higher price range, have had nothing but great things to say. Unfortunately I had to settle for an xxl as it was all that was in stock, it's slightly too big and that is my only negative, but that's a personal issue, not a comment on the bike itself.
