Good Bike though quite useless out of the box.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Upgraded from BTwin Mybike 7s to RockRider 340 recently. The bike out of the box was quite useless -

1. The default gear shifters are impossible for long rides - sprain on my wrists took two days to subside. Too much effort to shift using your wrist and the dynamics/friendliness is just wrong !

2. The hand grips for both hands are extremely narrow - no space for the fourth finger! Weird.

3. No mudguards - problem is the extra purchase required for the rear guards and a wasted front guard.


To fix the above three, had to buy :
1. Thumb shifters to replace the wrist/rotation shifters : Rs 1000 /-

2. Wider rubber grips : Rs 200 /-

3. As there are no back mudguards available in stock, you end up buying the a pair used by 7s wasting the front guard which comes with it. For the front, there are good ones available. 1 front + 1 pair for 7s for back = Rs 1050.

Once the additional expenses were met (~ Rs 2250 /- ), the bike rocks as expected and rides are quite an experience.

The workshop folks at Decathlon Whitefield have been extra helpful with their suggestions and service - quite commendable.

Wasted scrap bits (Decathlon doesn't take it back either):
1. Wrist Shifters.
2. Narrow Grips.
3. 7s Front guard.

To summarize, Decathlon/BTwin should really replace the default shifters and default hand grips as they are just useless by all standards. Further, they should stock proper back guards so that customer is not forced to buy a 7s pair instead.

Not the best..
Used for More than 2 years
I purchases this bike from Hennur Branch for daily commutation to office and rare outside trip (I was more interested in Rock driver 520, however the sales man suggested this). I have found couple of issues with gear system.. Changing the Gear to 1 on up doesn't work properly, sometime I am afraid the chain is going to break (so loud noice). 2. Gear change is not smooth.. while changing the gear especially on up, change becomes too lose, so I hurts badly as u lose all the control.

Seating is another issue but not that bad.
very nice cycle
Used for 1 week or less
this cycle is very nice
Best of all bikes i had
Used for 1 week or less
I bought my rockrider 340 from decathlon vytilla, cochin last week and till now I have clocked 150 kms in it. Very smooth to ride for 3 hrs continuously with padded cycle shorts. Fears are very smooth to change while pedaling and it is very precise too... Speed that I maintained is 24 km/hr as per the digital speedo installed. Now I am using it for workouts, commute and tour. I have taken my bike to kochi and visited some historic place which I would have avoided if I am in my motor cycle. Altogether , my experience with rockstar and decathlon is fantastic and memorable.
Suspension noisy
Used for 7 to 12 months
Suspension is bad...producing too much noise even for the smallest bump, speed breaker
Unhappy about quality of cycle
Used for 2 to 8 weeks

Response of the brand
Hello Sir, 

Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. Apologies for a late reply. The bike should not have problems with the brake in the beginning if the 14 point check was done before the bike was delivered to you. Please let me know from which Decathlon store you purchased the bike. I will inform the store regarding the problem and the store team will get In touch with you for a solution.

Bad tube quality, problematic gear transmission
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Poor quality commitments . The quality of the tyres is just local quality. I don't even ride on rough terrain. The roads are pretty smooth. Still the tyre got burst and that too not because of any sharp edge, it was just because of its low quality manufacturing or probably old tube in the bike. The tyre got punctured from the point of inlet, which definitely can't be categorised under, wear and tear within so less time. Went to the store, they said, they can't do anything it's not under warranty and did their 7-14 point checkup and sent me back! Worst experience ever. Why would anyone spend 16k that too stuffed with low quality material and poor experience to resolve the problems. I don't know why should I recommend this bike to anyone. When I bought it then also I was facing gear transmission issues from the first day itself, which was later repaired by them. I thought it'll solve a lot of my problems, but it has just increased my overhead costs. Plus, the seat is also uncomfortable but lookwise the bike look sporty and for athletic people.
Response of the brand

Hello Swapnil, 

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Apologies for the ill experience you have had with your new Rockrider 340. The bike is installed with Ralson tires and tubes. Ralson is one of the best tire manufacturing companies in India. If the tube busted it will have to be due to over pressure or due to repeated usage of the pump at the point of inlet which if not held rigidly is possible to wear out. The recommended PSI is 35-40 depending on how much cushioning you want. Unfortunately, both tires and tubes are not under warranty because they are under wearable components which is why the store refused to service it for free.
