Have a look at page 4 of this thread - I posted a couple of pics of mudguards and luggage rack on my RC520. Not had any problem with them. Wheels run fine and come off easily for cleaning. No snagging, plenty of room ... sweet.Anyone put mudguards on yet ?
Will be pressing n+1 button shortly.
Yes & no. TBF the RC520 could hardly be classed as a heavyweight bike, my personal experience is once it gets north of 13kg and you're used to riding something more like 8kg it becomes very noticable on steeper gradients. My steel framed gravel bike has a very forgiving 34t cassette, if it didn't I'd struggle on the inclines I ride it on. Many, many times I have hankered after my carbon-framed, expensively-wheeled road bike mid way up a climb...I don't care about weight, a number that seems to be hugely over-rated by the cycling community
Same down here, item showing stock online but physically not there, very frustrating.Saw an RC520 in the flesh on Friday night. I've no idea what I'm looking for but it looked nice to me. Understated in the navy blue but a bit different from all the the other black bikes. The Decathlon employee I spoke to was also very helpful.
Wrong size for me (medium) but tried a similar Triban in small which seemed OK (I can never get any significant standover due to me comically stumpy legs).
So, imagine my delight when the small size showed up as in stock on the website tonight...
...and Imagine my despair when buying it, "verified by visa" declined the transaction. In the time it took to go back and try a different payment method the bike had gone out of stock. Couldn't believe it. Bloody furious as I've been waiting for these to come in stock for weeks. They have the small size in some stores "darn sarf" but you can't buy them online. Decathlon can't let you know when they're coming in and there's no pre-order facility, meaning you've got to keep checking the website every day and even then it doesn't always work, as I've just found out.
Sorry, just needed to sound off. Will probably calm down by Tuesday. Arghh.
Seems like a nice write-up - amazing value, relaxed geometry bike etc.There's a new road.cc review of the RC520
