  • Switching to disk brake on rear wheel

    Used for More than 2 years
    Hi,

    I was wondering if it is possible to switch V-brake with disk brake for the rear wheel:
    - a) is the frame supporting this switch?
    - b) is it possible to just add the disk (wheel already prepared for this?

    Thanks
    Response of the brand
    Dear Sir,
    Thank you for your questions, but this bike is not compatible with disc brakes. Neither the frame nor the hubs can accept discs.
    Regards,
    Peter Lazarus UK Cycling Market Manager DECATHLON

    Generally this is a solid bike, but I am quite disappointed with the saddle which is unsteady when raised. Continuously slips back to the lowest position which is not ideal and in some cases can be dangerous. I have since learnt from reading reviews that this is a recurring problem with this bike. On the positive side, the front suspension dies the job and the gears are easy to change. I especially like the blinking lights which come on while cycling. In summary a good bike if the niggling saddle problem is sorted. Unfortunately, this problem makes it an average bike.
    Great suspension, Dynamo lights, smooth ride
    Unsteady saddle

    Love this bike. It's a joy to ride. I am only 5'4 and went for the medium sized frame which is a perfect fit. If you are new to biking or just need something to get you around town then this is the bike for you.
    Fast, easy to peddle and very comfortable.
    None so far.

    Bought it 2 months ago. longest trip so far was 32 milles from Western general hospital (Edinburgh) to longniddrie. it's a pleasure to drive, very silent and fast for this class. Gears are fairly good and decathlon staff can tune them for you when you buy it. i use it for commuting to work, occasional shopping and weekend drives. treat her well and she will get you to your destination, keep you in shape and help save the planet.
    It is heavy yes but at this price range I don't know anything better, hence the 5 star.
  • good bike
