    • Great Commuter

      After loss of license, had too commute using a bike. I bought this bike, and it has so far been excellent. I’ve had it for a year now and no problems with it. It’s extremely comfortable and gets me home quicker than my road bike. Strongly recommend for commuting medium distances because of its comfort. Nothing flashy just does the job. Recommend buying a gel seat with this product and a lightweight pannier.
    • A practical and fun bike

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I needed space and didn't need the separate mountain bike and road bike I had. In truth I needed something more 'sensible' dare I say it and something I could just hop on and go for a ride, ride with the family or, later on, do a bit of touring with lycra not required.
      I like Decathlon, have been card holder for years and have noticed over some period that the B'Twin bikes had good reviews from the bike press as well as on the website.
      Initially, based on reviews and Youtube videos I had set my heart on a Triban 100. I had always wanted a cross-type bike (or Gravel or Adventure to use the current parlance) and was happy with drops as I had taken my Boardman Road Comp off-road a little bit (bridleways and unmade roads) and it's more fun with drops!
      So, after it took an age to sell both my existing bikes I went to the Chelmsford store (small but staff are v.good) to try a bike or two. I tried a Triban 100 and was impressed.
      The power transfer seemed good and the handling and it was pretty light (a bit heavier than my Boardman).
      However, the brake levers are miles away from the drops and the gear change is nowhere near the brakes!
      Having doubts I tried a couple of the Rockrider MTBs and liked them but I don't need a MTB.
      I then tried the Riverside 500, which had already caught my eye online.
      Straight away I noticed that the handling via the straight bars and disc brakes was easy, comfortable and reassuring.
      Whereas dodging customers and their kids, inflatable canoes and whatnot in a small store on the Triban 100 was a blast, on the Riverside 500 my weaving and accelerating and decelerating was more assured.
      I liked the overall feel, the riding position and the sheer ease of use.
      It was tough, really tough giving up the idea of the Triban 100 and I did like it. But, and this is where I have to be sensible, the Riverside 500 was just more practical and versatile as it is set up now. If you could put brakes on the top of the Triban drops like some cross bikes have (I believe) by the gears then I might have wavered even more.
      To the gears: The Triban had 7 the Riverside 9.
      I expected from reviews that the Triban would win here as the gear change was lauded. It was solid but also clunky sounding - no stealth changes here.
      The Riverside was quiet and gave less cause for concern when changing.

      So to the acid test/s.
      I have taken it out on a couple of quick local 6-7 mile rides - no more than a quick blast to explore the vicinity and the bike.
      Pros: quick, safe, fun, comfortable :)
      Cons: a bit of noise from the wheels - expect is solvable, tyres on an unmade road gave cause for concern when braking cause sideways jittering. Others have rated the tyres badly but I can change them later.
      Overall: really pleased and look forward to going on the bike when I can.
      Advice: try it, buy it.
      Advice to Decathlon: all I got was a receipt! Where's the bike guide? The maintenance guide for those new to disc brakes etc. C'mon guys!
    • A very good initial impression.

      Used for 1 week or less
      I needed to replace my ageing Trek mountain bike. As I'm also ageing I looked for something in the trail bike range, and this caught my eye.
      First inpressions are that it is an excellent bike for the money. It's light comfortable to ride and nimble, but still copes well with stoney ground, rutted tracks, and large tree roots.
      The 9 gears are designed to give a good transmission spread although I think power peddlers may find the lowest gear not powerful enough but I'm not a power peddler so that is not a problem. maitenence will be much easier.
      Advertised as a touring bike it ticks a lot of boxes for not a lot of money.
