Rockrider 5.3 or other?

Postby jamesonwoods » Sat Oct 06, 2012 22:01 pm

New here :)

Is the Rockrider 5.3 still the one to beat at £300 or are there others I should seriously consider?

THe Rockrider 6.3 is on offer at the moment at £290, but I have a feeling the full suspension model is probably worse than the 5.3? http://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-63-id_8103207.html

Just looking for a decent bike, no more than £300 as it's my first bike in 15 years!

It is not a bad bike the 6.3, but the 5.3 is lighter and better equipped.

I have the 6.3 and I really like it :) Heres a link to my build thread, my review so far and the upgrades I have made:

It's amazing how a few cheap upgrades have transformed it, I have been relearning manuals and bunnyhops on it ready for some decent trails and its very nimble :)
