PSA. Decathalon DH Bargain.
i would for the money…..
rag it for a season and if you don’t like it flog it.
there are Haibike Zone frames being advertised for 500€ 2nd hand on german sites….
the “same” bike going for 2199€ with similar spec (poss crappier wheels)Posted 4 years ago
Geometry if any on is interested:Posted 4 years ago
BB looks a mile high. Where is the geo?
Don’t think you can really tell from the picture TBH as ground level doesn’t really show:
Plus if it’s anything like the old Sunday it’ll give up at least 5.5″ of it’s rear travel in Sag…
I like it, Yeah I’d want to see some geometry figures ideally, but if I Was buying a new DH bike on a budget, that would make the shortlist, with the distinct advantage over YT in the fact that I can go and look at one in my local Decathlon…Posted 4 years agoscottfitzMember

Interesting looking at that haibike link (assuming it’s exactly the same), similar parts, apart from Syncros rims…. Really? and a Vivid shock…
64 deg HA and all three sizes are 40cm (~16″) seat tubes, only vary in TT length, Decathlon only show M and L on their site, suggesting they’ve trimmed costs a shade more by not accommodating short arses…
16″ frame would suggest anyone under 5’6″ or over 6’4″ ish should maybe give it a miss?
No BB height given but it can’t be too high or else Superstar’s rigorous QC would reject it…Posted 4 years ago
The spec is pretty comparable to the YT Tues, which is generally considered one of the best entry level dh bikes ever… better in some respects, and it’s just a little over 2/3ds the price, that’s what the fuss is about. Oh, and you can go and bounce on it in a shop- not something you can do with any of the direct sales.Posted 4 years ago
But 3/5 with a dodgy pre-production shock and a £2200 price tag still bodes well for a bike costing half that.Posted 4 years ago
