leisure or touring. Solid and durable rim. 1120 g.
700c (28") freewheel rear wheel!
I'm constantly having to get the wheel trued and spokes adjusted as they keep undoing. I've never had a bike where the spokes just get loose by themselves.
In addition the spokes often break. I hear a 'ping' and another one has gone, despite not going over a bump.
This is a relatively new wheel, as the last one had problems as well.
I do not ride with heavy bags, though I admit roads in London can be a bit bumpy.
Decathalon said the wheel issues are to the roads and so are not covered under guarantee.
The spokes keep becoming loose and breaking
I'm sorry to read that you've been encountering issues with your rear wheel.
It is uncommon for so many spokes to come loose and break.
It may be easier for us to simply provide you with a new wheel. When doing so, ask the workshop technicians to give it a good going over before you leave the store.
Even if you no longer have your receipt, we can exchange it for you.

Very pleased. Don't forget rim band. B'twin rimtape 700 fits perfectly. Needed extra washer on my hybrid bike brake pads but easy fix. Bought some b'twin tyres too and inner tubes. All working perfectly now. Now my 80 mile commute to work is much easier.
well made. easy fit.
forgot to check rim width this is road bike width
