The balance and comfort of this cycle is awesome. Needs least care and the gear system is smooth & easy.
It is a wonderful bike but there is only one problem. The rim is getting black from side.
The quality of bike is great, have been using it for over 10 months now for my daily commute, even though the distance has reduced in the last 4 months the bike is working great.
I love taking it to work and a few of my collegues also got inspired to buy and commute on bike.
Have been facing issues on and off now, in the last 10 months I've used the bike (mostly city commute), the gears give a grinding noise which indicates that the shift wasn't proper (in 1-2 out of the 7 gears which the bike has), the service focal in Decathlon has adjusted it about 5-6 times already, everytime it works for 2-3 days and I get the same problem again.
The front wheel's deflectors came loose, this creates a hustling sound while riding fast
I bought the bike on 4th of this month. While rideing I was getting tired too quicky . While seeking for the problem, I came across to know that the back wheel was not spinning freely. At first I thought it was the brake pad that was too tight, it might be the reason. I took the bicycle to your store. Your staff who attended me was kind enough to fix the problem, but he told me that brake pad was one of the issues and wheel alignment too. How could it be possible to have such issue with in the first week itself . I rode it hardly two or three times. The wheel is still not properly aligned. Was't expecting such quality issues.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Wheel being a component that is subjected to wear and tear can have a miss alignment during the ride. The chances of this happening are higher when the bike goes off the road and come back in a small duration of time. This can happen to any bicycle. However, Wheel alignment can be tuned can fixed at our workshop by tuning the spokes. I remain available for more questions.
I bought this bike just a week before, overall bike is fine so far.
1) Its worth in this price.
2) Overall bike structure looks good.
3) Decathlon support is good.
But I observed few issues:
1) The brake 5,6 were making a lot of sound while running, which I got it fixed by decathlon executive (visited at home).
2) Seat is not comfortable, after 10 mints it start hurting (even after putting the gel cover as well).
3) I was looking for a White color in Men's but didn't find the same so have to compromise with Black one.
Could have been better if there was rear and front suspension in it...Thank You--Sunav Das
Cycle is well built except the seat size.The seat is narrow and has to be a little bigger for comfortable long rides.
With the default seat size, long rides can cause a lot of pain.
Good cycle with worst saddle.. I don't know how the designer designed the seat.. Not at all comfortable.. Zero seating comfort..
Going to buy local wide seat with springs..
The tyre's air pressure reduces every other day and you need to flate it before use. Seat is very bad, with gel cover, not suitable for adults. I bought from Gurgaon. cycle get rust on screws in one month after care. Tyres get puncture by minor concretes.
bought it a year ago and is running almost as good as new , periodic maintenance is imp for every bike , brakes are super, tyre grip is perfect,
well balanced drive even during turning
company needs to work on seat size as seat is small for adults
the grip on right side of handle is small
