Excellent bike..!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This bike is excellent. It is comfortable too and riding position is impressive.Rear gear shifting is smooth but there is a problem in shifting the front gears. This would be probably due to change in the setting.Though it is not a big issue. It has a good price tag of 26k.I recommend buying insurance with the cycle. It costs about 1300 which is not that high. It is fun to drive bicycle.
Its good, still not great

Used for 3 to 6 months
I had RR 340 before and upgraded to RR 520 thinking it will be great than that, but as far as my experience is concerned I would say, the best things here is the gear shifting its just flawless, comfort is good. But when it comes to breaking in wet or semi wet or even some times in dry terrains it performs very bad compared to RR 340. The RR 340 though had V breaks its breaking was just more helpful than this RR 520. I cant say anything very special about this RR 520 compared to my previous bike RR 340, FROM price point and so many other things.
Can't stop riding...!
Used for 3 to 6 months
I have been using this bike for last 6 months which I bought from Decathlon Calicut branch. Since the first day of my ride I'm being more and more addicted to ride my bike. I bought almost all the accessories and other riding gears.

Pros:
1. Style that everyone likes. Not being a round shaped frame. Matt finishing is excellent.
2. Comfort which let you ride long distance with ease.
3. Gear is so smooth like one in pro Cycle, which I felt.
4. Brakes are so powerful (During rain little friction less but does the job)
5. And many more.

Cons:
1. Seat is bit rough so, it'll start paining after many kms. (Using a good cushioned seat cover or riding shorts rectify it)
2. Not much

Btwin rr520 rocks nothing is better than that
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I would have driven 100 km + it has been 2 to 3 weeks since I got it. Only the seat is a bit uncomfortable. Worth of money. Disc brakes are really very good.

B'twin RR520 Rocks....!!!
Used for 3 to 6 months
Bought this bike at the middle of September 2016, done about 200+ kilometres so far both off road and on road but primarily on road. On road its very good for urban movement with easy shifting, braking and very manouverable . Front sifter is slightly stiff when going 1st to 2nd however this could just be my fault or this particular bike. Bike colour BLUE is very nice and is clearly visible when in urban or rural areas. When off road the bike performs admirably with good braking and traction in both dry and wet conditions. All round it is a Outstanding Sports MTB bike...
