used for 2 to 8 weeks I bought this bicycle for my wife who commutes to work everyday. It is quite decent and more affordable when compared to other options. Only thing I hated was the tires. They are not for commuting through a city like London. Neither are they 'all-season.' Probably that is the idea. They sell you a bike for a cheaper price with low quality/not-suitable equipment and make you spend money afterwards. After the first couple of days my wife has been coming home everyday with a couple of punctures, which is very very annoying. I am sick of puncture repairing every night. Tomorrow I am going to buy a new, decent pair of tires. As a result. this is a decent, value for money bike, ideal for commuting. But be prepared to spend between 30 and 50 quids for a new pair of tires.

Response of the brand

Dear Sir,
I'm pleased to read that you are enjoying your new bike.  Indeed, shimano sora groupset and carbon forks for this price is tough to find.
Regarding the tyres, the Hutchinson Equinox are good for dry or damp conditions.  I can assure you that these are not sub-standard tyres which we put on the bike to make you spend money afterwards.  The Hutchinson Equinox is fast rolling and would be perfect for longer rides in the dryer months.
However, you are correct in saying that if you commute and ride in all seasons it is well worth investing in puncture resistant tyres.  This would be the case with most road bikes you would buy.  one word of caution, they do tend to be slightly heavier and not as fast as the Equinox.
We recommend the Vittoria pro tech plus 700x25 tyres.  For only £17.99 each, they offer great value and performance for only £36 a pair.
Thank you for your feedback as I'm sure that other customers will take your advice to upgrade the tyres if the commute regularly in all seasons.
Regards,
Peter Lazarus UK Market Manager DECATHLON

Excellent commuter

Carbon forks, Shimano Sora gearset, lightweight

Front mech difficult to set up, brakes average

used for 2 to 8 weeks After 8 weeks of solid commuting I'm more than happy with this bike. The carbon forks take an amazing amount of chatter out of the ride, and it feels light and responsive. I've ridden old steel frames all my life so this feels like a totally different beast, and I now wish I'd made the leap to a more expensive bike years ago. Only negatives; brakes are fairly average and the front mech caused me issues, with a slipped cable that I managed to snap after I had to adjust it mid ride. I took it back to the Coventry store and they sorted that out for me without any fuss though, so really good customer service from your mechanic.

used for More than 1 year After 15 months of ride to work, I am happy owning this bike. Would I buy another, NO, as this bike is a road bike, turned into a hybrid bike and that means, its over geared , nervous steering, poor indexed gears, narrow tyres-lacked any wet weather grip and a rear wheel with a crossed up cassette thread(bad)

used for 1 week or less I actually purchased btwin triban SE road bike and took the bike home , after a having the bike for a night ..I felt uncomfortable and couldn't get used to the micro shift gears and handlebars..so went back to Braehead to see if they could exchange for Btwin fit 500 flat bar road bike. No problems.
After choosing my bike they went over it like a fine toothcomb. I took the bike home but didn't like the pedals.. so I changed them for a bigger pair ..they cost a tenner.. BRILL.. I took bike for a good run.. No complaints, very fast , smooth , light,
I couldn't thank the Decathlon staff at Braehead enough
They were fab.. they told me to bring the bike back in 3 months and they would service it..
CRACKING BIKE FOR THE MONEY.
