    • Rockrider 540

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      Purchased a Rockrider 540 in June of this year as is my first mountain bike and although I have nothing to compare with seems good quality.
      I seem to have uncovered a problem as to whoever built my bike has threaded the left side crank arm which means in future the bottom bracket cannot be changed without causing some damage.
      What is a little upsetting is that now my bike is due for it's first service the bike technician at my Watford store has left and nobody can do it.
      This means I have to get a bike shop to service which is extra hassle.
      I was impressed with the level of service offered to the cyclist as a company but now feel a little let down with nowhere to go for repairs / servicing etc.
      ride quality and comfort
      no technician at my local store

      This is my second bike from Decathlon. The first one was a Rockrider 8.2 equipped with 26" wheels, Avid break, SRAM 27 speed. I just loved that bike. It was tough, light, handy and I cycled everywhere and in any condition (even in salty water!!!) and it barely needed any maintenance. Unfortunately it got stolen and I had to replace it quickly because I cycle to work almost every day. So I went to Decathlon and I purchased this 540 B'Twin in March 2016 and, I have to say, I'm not happy at all. I thought I was upgrading my bike but, as a matter of fact, this 540 is lower in any aspect! It's heavier, breaks are slowly letting me down, The Shimano 27 is getting stuck and it's not reliable, the fork does the job but I can feel on my wrists that it doesn't work as good as the one I had on the other bike. Also the bike is basically new if you look at it!! Ever since I bought it I haven't had the chance to do some serious off-road and yet it's ageing super fast. I wish I never bought it and I'll definitely try to get rid of it as soon as I can!!!

      Response of the brand
      Dear Sir,
      Your are 100% correct, the Rockrider 540 (RRP £340) is nothing like the Rockirder 8.2. They will feel very different and the materials used will be of a lower grade for sure. The equivalent in the range to the 8.2 would be the Rafal 700 whith an RRP of £750.
      If you are looking for a similar bike with similar levels or equipment and the same engaging drive then I would certainly suggest you change the bike.
      If you are not happy with your bike and it is not performing as you expected, we have a 365 day return policy and you can return it to your local store if you wish.
      There is an all new Rockrider 900 coming out in October which may be of interest (£700) and comes with a fully up to date groupset and a very dynamic and engaging frame. This is the link to the product preview page so you can have a look:

      i was comfortable and impressed by the staff all round positive attitude,the lengths that they went, in order to make sure i was happy with my purchase.hats off to the reading purchase was exported to Trinidad west Indies. my client reaction : great bike ,handles like a dream , attention to details such as handling,performance,looks and durability has been considered "fantastic bike" .. i am happy with the level of service as well as quality of the products being supplied.
      on the down side which i think is no fault of decathlon, the delivery company who name i will not mention, have no respect or care in how they handling peoples goods,i had to complain about my delivery as i was suppose to receive two packages on the day,when the delivery turned up there was one of two packages on board the vehicle and the manner in which lt looked like it was just tossed in, the packaging was damaged as well the bike, the reaction from the delivery person was one of pure utter don't give a rat's furry a** about your package. his response to package two was i don't know call the office.
      i would like to see something done about this as it is service that is being paid for.
      staffs positive attitude , dedication and service
      delivery service lacking care & attention
