This is the best buy from my side, it has the great smoothness which make your ride comfortable in one sentence it's worth the money
The cycle is average. It has gear issues, just four days the chain came off. The seat is very hard even with the cover on. Overall not satisfied with purchase ( Decathlon whitefield.)
I bought this cycle in May. I have cycled 200km in total and the problem i faced was the handle's screw becoming loose and was turning. The gears are awesome. only once i faced some delay issues, else they are just awesome. The breaks perfectly fine and the tyres too.
I suggest the producers to strengthen more the spokes are they are more vulnerable to wheel bend.
i am enjoying the cycle very much.
I am starting to cycle again after 10-12 years, and this time I opted for a geared cycle from decathlon . This is a very good product with initial trial of 5 mins from the store itself . But real issue comes out when you take out cycle coz seat is not at all comfortable, pain arises in lower abdomebmn due to seat.
Further decathlon folks in Pacific mall tagore garden are not sensible enough. They wish customer to quickly make a decision and do not entertain the questions properly.
14 points check is just the formality ,as I got to know new cycles need not go through it LOL. NO body tried to explain me how to use the gears being a new bee in this category.
I have been using it since 1 week and now metal sound is coming from the front junction between handle and tyre.
So decathlon needs to look after all these items if they wish not to lose their customers
I love this bike very much and ride it daily up-to 5 km easy to ride.
The gear doesn't seem work good. Sometime it's not functioning properly.and some sound coming.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The front derailleur has a series of shifting because the shift required to derail the chain is high compared to the rear derailleur. Here it is required that you shift swiftly till the chain is completely on the new crank. Since the gap is high between shifts there has to be a series of shifts for the transition to happen. For the front derailleur do not go not click at a time. Rotate a couple of clicks till the chain has shifted.
Bike is awesome, only the seat is not comfortable.
Best cycle 2 light and best quality
My daughter says the seat portion is hurting....this despite a seat cover - Pls check out our accessories we bought - it will be really nice to replace the existing seat with a more rider friendly and comfortable seat ...Pls consider
The bicycle is great to start cycling at a good price, I have ridden it for more than 1200 kms for now and lubricated chain and rings just once after 850 kms and again it goes as smooth as it was before. Bicycle is made up of good quality material and components and the service from decathlon is also appreciable except for the low number of cycle specialists both in Decathlon CBD and Indirapuram.
Now the cons in this bike are:
1. No quick release rear wheel : what stopped you from giving it in the rear when it is there in the front wheel i don't understand (nor it can be put now). My cycle got punctured 2 times in the rear tyre only and you have to fix the puncture only unlike just replacing the tube like the front tyre, that's a big con.
2. Most of the brands at this price provide 27.5' tyres and sometimes 29' also. 26' tyre in this bicycle is a straight drawback when you are riding with others with bigger wheels, same effort but lower speed.
3. The saddle rod like other bikes should be longer and out rather than its holding hollow frame, one has to unnecessarily pull seat out to put rear light and saddle bag behind.
4. The bike handles are of poor grip, the grip gradually shifts outwards and one has to routinely push it inside which is not an easy task, better shifters should be installed rather than grip shifters so that the handle grip can stay at its position.
I would have loved to recommend this bike to others but the first 2 cons that I have found would not allow me to recommend this to someone dear.
