    The ROCKRIDER 520 was designed and created in France, at the B'Twin Village in Lille, by a team of experts and cycling enthusiasts dedicated to designing our mountain bike Sport Touring line. Production took place in different factories in Europe as close to our Decathlon stores as possible. More information available on our website: http://www.btwin.com/en/home

Seat is 5 times more flexible than a standard frame thanks to a narrow 27.2 mm seat post. Low bottom bracket: helps keep the mountain bike stable in turns, and makes it easier to place foot on the ground. Open steering angle (69.5°): keeps mountain bike stable while riding. Short rear wheel base: bike is easy to turn.

    The suspension on this bike does not work. Do not buy this if you want some down hill mountain bike action. The forks do not budge and the chain comes of extremely easily. When I come off a high ledge and I was hoping my suspension would work but then they did not budge and I ended up fracturing my wrist. Really not happy with this bike I could get a bike for the same money which has good suspension and the chain does not come off.
    Response of the brand
    I'm sorry to read that you injured your wrist. I hope you feel better now.
    This bikes comes with 80mm of travel and is designed more as a cross country bike than for downhill use. The forks will absorb the vibrations on a trail and for moderate descents, any riding above this requires 100mm of travel at least (possibly more) and the frame needs a slacker geometry for that style of riding.
    This bike's geometry is more suited to faster riding on flat, on the climbs and moderate descents. More of an allrounder you could say.
