Great feel bike but sloppy sram x5 gears
Martin, The 06/05/2014
Nice weight and balance fun to ride
sram x5 gears are too slow in changing to Mtb with
sram x5 gears are too slow in changing to go Mountain Biking on hills with as I got stuck many times. The Decathlon mechanics could not improve the gears. The bike is nice feel to ride on, but because of sloppy slow gears in changing it is more suited for riding flatter xc.
Response of the brand
I'm sorry to read that the SRAM x5 gears have not performed as well as expected. This groupset is sometimes found on bikes exceeding £800 in other international brands and is generally considered to be a good workhorse.
There may be another underlying issue regarding the gears as they should function perfectly well under normal conditions. Would you like one of our technicians to give you a call? If so, please get back to me and I can arrange this.

Rockrider 6.5 star buy
Koffee, The 11/01/2014
Very smooth big improvement over the 6.3
At this price none really
I had a XL 6.3 which I was more than happy with was great off road and on .. My mistakes was taking a frame which was to big for me .. Sold it but went up a grade to the 6.5 .. And my word it's a big step up the bike rides even better smoother on the gears better styling all round the proformance if you thinking of buying a 6.3 ... Save that little more and get the 6.5, it really feels like a Big step up. I'm keeping it for another 3-6 months then looking at trying a 9.1 or 9.2
Hope this helps

All round good bike
lack of proper instructions
I have owned this bike for 5 mouths and have used it at least twice a week in this time. it has been used on roads, cycle routes , and on mountain tracks including red routes at the local cycle park all of which it has coped with very well for a bike at this price you can't ask any more. I have no idea how it compares with more expensive bikes as I have never ridden one but did ride my old bike around around the same route as the Rockrider and found the Rockrider was far superior in every way.
Frame New 6061 aluminium oversize S.I.X frame with 120 mm rear wheel travel, based on a monopivot suspension system offering high sensitivity to small shocks but also gives the bike sturdy resistance to strong impacts. Weight= 2.7kg in size M, without shocks.
Fork Hydraulic Rockrider fork with 120mm of travel, with magnesium blade for lighter weight, with lockout at the top of the right damper for rolling terrain, and with easy adjustment of the pre-load (fork hardness) at the top of the left damper. A fork which has already proved itself.
Suspension X-Fusion E1 air shocks, lightweight, specifically adapted to the S.I.X. frame, easily adjustable to the rider's weight thanks to the schrader valve: a great balance between sensitivity and performance
Drive train Shimano Tourney front derailleur, Sram X5 rear shifter and derailleur: very good combination in terms of comfort of use, speed of gear changes, and reliability. Thanks to its 27 speeds and its quick gear changes, it is easy to find the right gear for each new type of terrain.
Bottom bracket Suntour XCT triple chain wheels, 22/32/42 teeth. 9 speed Sram ESP 5.0 cassette, 11 x 34. Sram chain with quick-release.
Brakes Tektro Auriga Comp hydraulic disc brakes, offering high braking power while remaining progressive and easy to dose. 160 mm front and rear discs. Front and rear "postmount" callipers, directly screwed into the frame and the fork: gain in weight and ease of adjustment! Discover the power of hydraulic disc braking, you will not be disappointed!
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, with a 6º "backsweep" angle. The components are marked to help you find the best setting.
Steering Semi-integrated headset for improved watertightness, precision while riding, and a built-in look. 120 mm Rockrider mono-density grips.

Wheels Rockrider Sport wheels, with 32 hole double-walled aluminium rims: guaranteed shock and warp resistance, and lightweight! Aluminium hub compatible with disc brakes only.
Tyres Front and rear KENDA Nevegal 26x2.10 rigid bead tyre, known for its versatility: it behaves well on all types of surface, whatever the weather (dry or wet), thanks to its deep and well distributed tread, and its "Stick-E" rubber which provides good grip. Tyres with inner tube.
