comfortable, light and looks very nice.
after a couple of days the chain keeps sliping
i am a beginner, i don't no that much about bikes, but i had a lot of fun with this one. comfortable, light and looks very nice.
But after couple of days the chain kept on slipping. It only happen on the lowest gear. so it is difficult while cycling uphill.
other then that it a great bike
Response of the brand
Thank you for posting a review of your b'Twin Rockrider 500 S Full Suspension Mountain Bike.
Regarding the issue your are encountering with your gears, it is not uncommon for bikes to require some adjustment shortly after purchase because the cables can stretch a little resulting in less than satisfactory shifting in some gears. We offer a free checkup anytime within the first 3 months precisely for this reason so please don't hesitate to contact your local Decathlon store workshop to book your bike in. If you are unable to visit your local store then there are some great tutorials online which can guide you through the process if you feel confident enough and have the correct tools.
This is a good instructional video on Youtube to learn how to adjust your gears : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTprZHCwoNc
This is also a great film teaching riders how to shift gears on mountain bikes which can also help : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkM_bPE9ZBY

Great affordable twin suspension bike.

Build quality, gear ratios and disk brakes
Very little, removed toe slots off pedals
This is exactly what I was looking for. I sturdy, twin suspension bike for leisurely off roading, travel to work, and the ability to land off a road kerb without crashing all the weight through the frame and rear spokes. Gear ratios are close but very pleasant, brakes good for non hydraulic, strong but not too heavy. Matt black looks real good, gear set high quality, accepted front and rear mudguards to make this a very versatile all rounder, and so reasonably priced. Well done Decathlon!
Frame New oversize aluminium 6061 S.I.X frame, 15% tougher and lighter than the previous version. 120 mm rear travel, based on the famous "monopivot" system, which offers great sensitivity to small bumps and remains sturdy under large impacts. System mounted on sealed bearings for good durability. Comfortable geometry and effective steering. Caster angle at 69° for more stability. Weight= 2.7 kg in size M, without shocks.
Fork Rockrider 120mm fork, with adjustable preload (stiffness of inner coil) on the left leg: simple to adjust and easy maintenance. Wide dampers (32mm), for more rigidity. Lockout lever on the right leg, to avoid bobbing on rolling ground (road, smooth path, etc.).
Suspension Hydraulic coil shock, with shock stiffness adjuster. Can be adjusted by hand at any time without tools.
Drive train Suntour XCT 22x32x42 chainset.
New generation Shimano ACERA rear derailleur: straight, quick, effective and reliable shifting.

Discontinuous cabling for lower weight and higher precision. Derailleur levers directly built into the brake levers, for better weight and good integration of all parts on the handlebars. 9 speed SRAM ESP 5.0 cassette, 11x34. SRAM chain with quick-release.
Brakes Hayes MX5 mechanical disc brakes, offer a biting brake that is easy to control. Easy maintenance and adjustment. 160mm front and rear disc. "Postmount" front and rear calliper, screwed directly onto the frame/fork: to reduce weight and make adjustment easier.
Handlebar Oversize 640mm diameter Rockrider Sport aluminium handlebar, for better rigidity and stability on descents.
Stem Rockrider forged aluminium oversize diameter stem, for more rigidity. The components are marked to help you find the best setting.
Steering Semi-integrated A-headset, for better watertightness, precision, and a built-in look. Rockrider mono-density grips, length: 120mm.

Tyres Front and rear KENDA Nevegal 26x2.10 rigid bead tyre, known for its versatility: behaves well on all types of surface, whatever the weather (dry or wet), thanks to its deep and well distributed tread, and its soft "Stick-E" rubber which provides good grip. Tyres with inner tube.
S.I.X. suspension system: "Monopivot" suspension for greater simplicity and sensitivity on 120 mm travel
