Postby Martinfry » 17 Aug 2017, 12:22am

Broadly Decathlon bikes are viewed as good value for money, whether it's the right/best choice of bike for your intended purpose would be a different question.

Previous discussions of Decathlon Rockrider. Lots to look at, some may prove more relevant than others.
He's got Bette Davis knees.

As always, depends on how much you spend. If you buy a 200 bike, it will be a 200 bike. For the quality of the bike, the price is about 20-30% cheaper than brand name bikes. The only negative I will say, is that their in-store mechanics are none too good.
I wish it were as easy as riding a bike

I bought a £500 Rockrider 8.1 a few years back, and I'm still really happy with it.

The only "unbranded" thing on it is the frame, which is perfectly fine. Oh... and the handlebar grips, lights/reflectors, and saddle which you might as well throw away!

Bikes with the same/equivalent components were at least £150 more expensive at the time.

I'm not sure how good their cheaper bikes are, though. They didn't look that impressive.
