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.
Iam a cyclist previously I used 5.3 and was happy. Recently I upgraded to 540 RR. This cycle 540 is not up to the mark, I have issues from past 6 months, chain already replaced without using 300 km. Again from past 1 week it's in stores, have hydraulic break issues, some noise cmg harshly while riding bike. Iam really not happy with product.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The Rckrider 540 is one of the best value for money bikes. So far we have not had unhappy users with the bike. Please let me know which store you have purchased your bike from and if you also notify me before your next visit with your bike I will coordinate with the store to get you the best solution.
Bought this thinking of high quality components used in it but boy was I wrong the both tyres had cracks when complained they said this is normal. Brakes are spongy and front derailleur shifting is not smooth at all even after complaining during 1st check up the technician said this is normal don't know why then need to spend 30 grand on this pathetic low quality product. Worst product and service had hoped for better service from decathlon.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The Rockrider 540 is one of the best value for money bikes. So far we have not had unhappy users with the bike. The brakes can sometimes have a problem due to the angle in which the pads are placed. We should check the tuning of the front derailleur. Please let me know which store you have purchased your bike from and if you also notify me before your next visit with your bike I will coordinate with the store to get you the best solution.
Cycle spokes, Front and rear gear changers / derailleur, shock absorbers, disc brakes and all the nut bolts are of steel which adds weight to the cycle.
I have used it for 3 times and I can observe cracks on the sidewall of the tires which is annoying.
I've been riding it for 7½ months now and I've put it through a lot of punishment. I've rode it hard and on every surface possible. The fork holds up to a lot of punishment and the gears are very smooth. The front derailleur is buttery smooth and the rear Altus derailleur is very good. The brakes are quite strong but they need to be bled every 6 months if used a lot like I do.
