Purchased this bike recently, it was a move from a hybrid to a mountain bike. As Road bikes can have issues of getting used to positions, many people including this rider select a the 'middle path'.
A straight handle bar works well for leisure rides, althoug the fat tyres are not recommended for road rides but it does quiet well its job. Many 50 to 70 kms rides on it didn't effect the overall speed by more than a 1.5km, a decent tradeoff when you consider that the straight handle bar does allow one the ease of riding. Further on Indian roads the sturdy frame of MTB is always handy.
Planning to do a 600 BRM on it, with the change of tyres to 26 1.2 tyres. (also available with btwin) Hopefully it goes well.
Nice handling on down terrain.. nice Tyre grip... SRAM 2x10 is excellent to power up this bike..
Suffering a high shifting problems
So this little beauty got deliverd this morning and I could not wait to ride her.... Did a quick check and I was on the road 50 kms done and dusted and one word comes to mind.... "Butter"... this 560 just cuts through the road...The bike is super comfortable, really smooth and super quite too..... The SRAM x5 group set is excellent and the quality of shift is impeccable I was quite surprised to see this level of kit on this bike..
I would have liked slightly larger breaks but im just being picky....The kenda tyres have great bite
Big shout out to the guys from Decathlon Kulatpally, Alphius and the gang were great...
Looking forward to many more rides
Comfortable position with high efficiency ride
Great Rockshox suspension (with easy lock), powerful hydraulic brakes
Really changed my pleasure to ride!
