Loose spokes and incorrect dish
Used for 1 week or less
After asking a friend to pick a back wheel up for me I promptly fitted it and assumed it would be good to go. After noticing a severe wobble down the hill outside my house I removed the wheel and noticed half the spokes were loose and the dish is massively off centre. With not much knowledge on wheel truing and adjustment I'm now going to have to fork out more cash on getting it sorted

My experience of Decathalon started well and keeps getting better and better. This time the mechanic Cassy, I think, at Decathalon Purley Way took the time to understand not only the fault but my story as well. I'm a middle aged man and took up cycling late last year and purchasing a a btwin triban 520 at the beginning of this year to start getting serious about it. Cassy could see how my enthusiasm had ebbed after the wheel incident and in carefully explaining and replacing the wheel for me reignited my enthusiasm for being on the road. I love the customer service and the products you sell and am recommending Decathalon to anyone who will listen.
Disappointed

Bought this to replace the original for the bike. After 4small rides out i have a loose spoke. Tightened and loosened again on next ride. Now had a bike mechanic review it and after 3miles it's loose again.

2 Broken Wheels within 6 months
Used for 3 to 6 months
I bought this rear and the matching front wheels less the 6 months ago. Within 2 months the front wheel badly buckled, I ride carefully but the store claimed it was wear and tear charging me £10 to get to trued. Within 4 months (as of today) the back wheel bearing has gone and the spokes loose and noisy. I hope I get better customer service in claiming on warrant for the right off rear wheel.
Response of the brand
Hello,

Thank you for reviewing this wheel, as the shop said, a buckle in the wheel isn't covered under the warranty as it is wear and tear and could happen to any wheel.
As for the rear wheel you should face no problems in getting this replaced under the warranty as it should certainly last longer than 6 months under normal use.

I bought this as a replacement rear wheel for a hybrid and I'm pleased with it. Fit perfectly. Only comment is to be aware that this is a very narrow rim designed for a road bike but fine for the 28c I use. Also, be aware it uses a Presto fitting for the innertube, not a Schrader (which was on my previous wheel).
Fine as cheap spare wheel for turbo trainer use

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought this as a cheap way to have a specific wheel for the turbo trainer, saving me having to swap tyres each time or wearing out my good ones on the turbo. With a cheap Sora cassette too this made for a £50 all in turbo wheel, the cheapest way I could find to do that.

Can't comment on what the wheel is like on the road though as haven't and won't be using it for that.
You get what you pay for
Used for More than 1 year
Have been using this wheel on my commuter for 18 months. Ratchet teeth in the free hub body started to stick (so that pedalling wouldn't always result in the wheel going round). It has got to the point now that it is totally broken and the freehub doesnt engage.

Its good and cheap, but don't expect it to last 2 years.
Cheap
free hub broke and non serviceable
Response of the brand
Hello Tom,

Sorry to hear that the 700 road bike wheel hasn't met your expectations in terms of life of the freehub body. As you've had this wheel for quite some time, the wheel has since been redesigned and parts upgraded to increase the life of this wheel. It isn't still quite up to scratch for life on the UK roads. The wheel is soon to be replaced with a whole new hub.

Cheap wheels
Used for 3 to 6 months
These wheels seems very poor, this is the third time I've replaced the rear due to spoke / rim splitting and buckled wheel. Disappointing that local Decathlon say it is 'wear and tear', supposed to have a 2 year guarantee yet won't honour it. Bought a replacement this time from local cycle specialist.
Third time replacing the rear on my Triban 500
Response of the brand
Thank you for your feedback regarding these wheels. A new b'Twin road wheel is due out very soon (matter of weeks) which comes with sealed bearings and deeper/stronger rims.
I am unaware of the mileage ridden/frequency of use/terrain used therefore it's hard to comment as to why the store said it was due to wear and tear. It is a wheel designed for recreational use and as long as it is cleaned correctly and serviced as and when required then they should be fine.

Garbage
Used for 3 to 6 months
I am having to replace the wheel yet again after 4 months because these wheels are cheap. Not only that I wasted weeks waiting for he Bolton store to get these in stock. The staff take your phone number and promise to call you when they come in yet not once did they ever call. Will be avoiding these and paying extra from a better website like wiggle
Cheap
Buckle too easily
Response of the brand
Hi Stuart,

If you could give me some further information into what you are disappointed about the wheel I can forward your information to the product manager. I'd suggest you take the wheel into the Bolton store so they can take a look at the issue you have had and resolve it for you as the wheel does come with a 2 year warranty.

Poor set up
This wheel came with the bike when I bought it and had to be replaced several times under warranty due to the freewheel becoming prematurely worn out. When the warranty finished I bought one more wheel as it was cheap hoping I could get one more winter out of it before getting a new bike however it was set up very badly - a lot of the spokes were very loose and this led to the wheel catching on the brakes as it wasn't running true. As it was purchased as a wheel and not parts I would have expected decathlon to have set it up properly
Response of the brand
Dear sir,
The first batch of these wheels were not great. the freehub body on the more recent ones are much improved.
Thankfully an all new wheel (rim, spokes and sealed hubs) is on it's way and after significant personal testing, I can certainly say that they're a huge leap in the right direction. Quite impressed to be honest.
I have asked the customer loyalty team to contact you in order to help resolve your issues and make sure you have a great wheel for you bike.
regards,
Peter Lazarus UK Cycling Market Manager DECATHLON
