All rounder bicycle
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Have been using this bike model for many weeks now. This is truly an all-rounder. I'd gone to buy a Rockrider 520 but ended up buying the Rockrider 540 and I do not for a moment regret my choice. The biggest reason I went for the 540 is because of the hydraulic front shock ups. Compared to the non-hydraulic (spring) ones on the 520, the difference is obvious. City rides over broken and potholed roads are much much smoother now. The presence of hydraulic brakes on this bike helps - however I don't notice that much difference from cable-disc-brakes or v-brakes. The bike feels well made with premium materials. The Shimano Altus gear system (9x3 = 27 gear ratios) is smoother than the Shimano Tourney system that is found on lower range bikes. Having more gear ratios helps too - makes the bike versatile for all conditions.

For buyers thinking of putting a pannier rack on this bike - you should buy the rack from Decathlon itself and get it fitted at the store - right when you buy the bike. This is because this bike is designed to take a pannier rack even though it has a rear disc brake.

All-in-all a great product.
Review after using 17months & 8,000Kms
Used for More than 1 year
This review is.going to be precise and to the point.
Pros:
1) Riding comfort is pretty good. I have done 193Kms in a single day without any discomfort
2) Bike's posture is bit aggressive riding gesture
3) Impressive handling, cornering, balance and stsbstabi
4) Braking performance is quite powerful and balanced
5) Weight is standard
6) Pretty much fast in off+on road
7) Suspension is very much supportive during rides, especially in deep/ big holes in path
8) Shifting is satisfactory, especially the rear one (only if you maintain it properly)
9) Crank is Shimano chainring compatible for replacement
10) Price of the bike is very attractive

Cons:
1) The colour on the frame is quite fragile. S small scratch may prevail the aluminium frame. This is not satisfactory at all.
2) The from derailure (micro shift derailure) is not performing satisfactorily. The chain shifting leaves scars/ marks/ scratches on the frame (just below the crankset)
3) Hayes Radar is pretty much costly Braking System. Spares/ parts/ servicing is rare in the market. Above all, price is also high
4) The Bottom Bracket has a peculiar size and this size is also unavailable in market (VP BC73, 68X115)

Warning!!!
1) I had replaced the rear tyre within 6 months because of the wrong assembling of Decathlon's bike assembler. The rotation of the tyre was wrongly installed and i didn't checked.
It is the best cycle , you buy
Used for 7 to 12 months

Response of the brand
Hi Farhaan, 

Thanks for your feedback. We regret the negative experiences you have had with your bicycle. Bicycle chains are prone to rust if stored or used in a moist or wet climate. Steel components of chains can withstand corrosion if applied with lubricants on a regular basis. In regard to seat clamp
