Was my wish list to buy one ,today I own a b-twin 540 and I am happy the best cycle I have rode till present excellent design and shifting gears .I can proudly say a good investment
It is best sports shop ever
RR 540 is a good cycle
I am using this bike for around five and a half month now. Commuting to office daily. That's around 25 kms daily. The roads are extremely bad and most of the times ride on the footpath which is mostly of gravels and uneven concrete chunks. It has an amazing grip and the brakes are super awesome combined with the front suspension. Only thing that's not so great is the seat. It gets really uncomfortable at times. It can be fixed with a proper memory foam seat cover and proper calibration of the seat.
Really awesome bike for fitness.. will recommend this to my friends
Submitting this review after using almost 11 months and riding more than 7,000Kms.
Riding trails: mostly in Urban, commute, turmac, city rides, bad road, potholes, occasionally off road trails.
Pros: light weight, good quality drivetrain and shifters for very smooth shifting, lovely shock absorber absorb almost all shocks, seat/saddle and standard handlebar for relaxing ride, powerful front brake, quite fast on trails, standard frame geometry and lovely matt finish, aggressive stance, low maintenance.
Cons: powerless rear brake can barely stop the wheel, wheel spokes (front and rear) got loosen severally, frame paint coat quality is not very satisfying, brake pads are rare in Indian market and costly.
** Quality of tyres is good but I had to replace the rear tyre because Decathlon fitted the tyre wrongly/ reversely and I noticed it at almost 5,000Kms.
** Not done any full servicing yet except done 4-5 partial servicing/ troubleshooting.
Overall, this bike will never let you down.
i am very disappointed after purchase this bike because its shows Continuous problems . First of all when i used the rear break it lost a screw from the break system near disk . i don't know what happened that time . from that moment rear disk starting to fray . i returned this bike to shop next day And after 3 days i brought this back to home .Next morning it's chain started to fray with front gear system . Again i returned this to shop then they found out crank bend . how is that possible i cant use this cycle more than two days .
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The rockrider 540 is one of the bikes with great quality at a lower price and the users have had a good feedback about the bike. I apologize for the bad experience you have had with the bike. Please let us examine your bike completely. Let me know when it would be a good time for you to get the bike to Decathlon and which store you would like to visit. I will brief the store and let them know about the problem.
Nice Ride,Nice Bicycle
I am extremely happy with this bike! I use it to commute to my office almost everyday (which is about 4 km from home). If I need to rush, I just crank up the gears and reach in less than 15 mins including the heavy traffic.
It also has good grip and shock absorbers when riding on the tricky roads in Bengaluru. Almost everyday someone or the other asks me about the bike because it is such a head-turner. Finally, Decathlon Brigade Road is the best when it comes to after-sales service.
