Saddle: adjusting to the correct height

Make sure you adjust the saddle height correctly before going out for your first ride.

Our advice: raise the saddle to your hip height and fasten the seat clamp collar with a size 5 Allen key (found on all multi-tools). If you want a more precise adjustment, you should be able to rest your foot on the pedal with your leg straight, then all you need to do is set off and ride ;)

Tyres: how to inflate them correctly

The recommended pressure is 2.2 bar. For increased comfort, reduce the pressure to 1.7 bar. If riding on paved roads, you can go up to 4 bar.

The Riverside Touring 920 is equipped with Tubeless Ready rims and comes with special valves.

Remember to inflate your tyres every 2 weeks.

Stand: choosing the right one

Dynamo: using it correctly

Cycle2Charge USB charger for bikes - charge mobile phones using a bike dynamo

Using a smartphone or GPS device on cycling trips has become the norm. Few cyclists will pass up the opportunity to make use of them. But what happens when the battery runs out and you still have some distance to go? This can quickly become frustrating. Particularly when you're in unfamiliar territory and can't make use of your GPS. But this is a simple problem to solve: charge your mobile phone using your bike's dynamo, and you're all set! Use the Cycle2Charge, an extremely compact and powerful USB charger. This small device allows you to charge your smartphone and many other devices using the energy generated by the bike's dynamo hub.

The bike charger with USB connection: for many different devices

Cycle2Charge is a USB bike charger which can be used to charge the batteries of Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone devices, as well as many types of mobile GPS devices. The USB bike charger can also be used to easily charge battery packs and other energy storage devices with a USB port. The bike USB charger is easy to install on the bike, even for those not used to DIY. It requires no additional equipment, and uses electricity generated by the dynamo on the wheel hub to charge any devices connected by USB. It can be mounted on any Ahead headset available in store. Simply replace the existing cap with the Cycle2Charge and you'll be able to charge your mobile phone after connecting it using the supplied cables.

High-output USB bike charger

Cycle2Charge is a USB bike charger with particularly high effectiveness. As a result, the device is perfectly suited for frequent and pleasure riders. At a speed of 12 km/h, the dynamo USB charger provides an output of 500 mA. The maximum 1000 mA current is achieved at a speed of 21 km/h. If you charge your mobile phone with the Cycle2Charge using a bike dynamo, the device delivers a stable USB charge of 5 volts and can be used universally thanks to the standard USB socket. We recommend using an external battery pack for certain devices, as they do not use the maximum current of the Cycle2Charge USB charger. These devices include iPhones and some modern Android devices. The device is very safe, equipped with a mechanism to protect against power surges. All devices are therefore protected against surges and any subsequent damage, even when descending at speed.

Stable and corrosion-resistant coating

If you want to charge your mobile phone using the bike dynamo, there are other reasons you might choose the Cycle2Charge USB charger. The inside of the device is made from anodised aluminium, while the outer coating is made from impact-resistant plastic. All the materials are corrosion-resistant and therefore ideal for long-term outdoor use. The multiple sections give the device greater stability. The Cycle2Charge USB charger is easy to install even for complete beginners, and can also be attached directly to the bike handlebar using the optional holder. You can easily use the USB charger single-handed even when wearing gloves, making for a safer ride.

Cleaning you riverside touring 920

Avoid using high-pressure cleaners when cleaning your Riverside Touring 920, as water may get into the bearings and cable housings!

Wash your bike with a hose and a sponge (cleaning kits are available at Decathlon).

Use a cloth to dry your bike

Lubricate the chain with a suitable lubricant 

NOTE: If you use the bike in salty conditions remember to completely rinse the bike as soon as possible afterwards

Correctly storing your riverside touring 920

> Store your bike in a place that is cool and sheltered.

> Before you put it away, clean your bike to remove mud or sand that could corrode your bike.

> Lubricate the chain: spray the lubricant onto the entire chain to protect it against rust

> Put the derailleur onto the smallest cog

How to switch your wheels to tubeless

To reduce the risk of your inner tube being punctured or pinched, you may want to consider switching the wheels on your Riverside to Tubeless.

For this you will need to purchase:

- Puncture prevention liquid (tyre sealant):



HOW TO:1. Remove the wheel. 2. Remove the tyre and inner tube from the rim. 3. Insert a TUBELESS READY valve through the rim hole from inside the rim. 4. Apply the tyre sealant (puncture prevention liquid). 5. Mount your new TUBELESS READY tyre (the Riverside Touring 920 comes with Tubeless Ready tyres). 6. Inflate up to 4 or 5 bar so your tyre "presses firmly". up against the rim; then deflate to the recommended pressure.

If it seems too tricky, just visit your nearest Decathlon workshop and ask them to do it for you.

Bedding in your brakes

When you first purchase your bike, the brake pads and discs are brand new and therefore the initial braking performance is very low (weak).

A sharp prolonged braking action (for example, during a descent) with brakes that have never before been used can cause the pads to overheat and to "freeze up".

To ensure that your brakes perform, we recommend you bed them in.Bedding in takes 10 braking cycles per brake. For each braking action: apply a single brake to slow the bike down from about 25 km/h to 5 km/h without fully blocking the wheel. Repeat with the other brake.

Your wheel is buckling after several rides

When you take your new bike out for a ride for the first time, a lot of parts can shift and fall into place.

You'll hear the spokes on your wheels creak because of the residual torsion in them.

Your wheels should not buckle or be twisted in any way. If this does happen, use the free check-up available to you within six months of purchase and call in at one of our Decathlon workshops to have your wheel repaired free of charge.

Your gears are not shifting properly

There could be several reasons why your gears (cogs) are not shifting correctly.

1- Check the position of the cable housing caps.Incorrectly positioned cable housing caps can hinder the pulling action on the derailleur cable and cause the shifting of the gears to be off. If a housing end is out of position, push it back into place.

2. The cables or the housing could be locked up.If the chain isn't shifting down to the smallest cogs, and the rear derailleur doesn't move when activating the shifters, then the cable and/or the cable housing is almost certainly locked up. In this case, the cable and housing need to be replaced.

3. Take your mountain bike to a Decathlon workshop to have the derailleur adjusted.

4. You should also check that the derailleur dropout is not twisted. If it is, check the section "YOUR DERAILLEUR DROPOUT IS BROKEN".  

NB: If you regularly ride your Riverside in wet or muddy conditions, or if you regularly wash your bike with lots of water, then your cables and cable housing will need to be replaced more frequently. Washing your bike using a high pressure hose is highly discouraged as it can push dirt and dust into the cable housing.

Your derailleur hanger is bent

A bent hanger causes the derailleur to be out of alignment and therefore unable to function correctly.

Stand behind your bike and check the alignment of the derailleur.

If the dropout is twisted or broken, take your bike to a Decathlon workshop to have it replaced. A replacement derailleur dropout is supplied when purchasing your Riverside.

Replacing the chain

To do this, you will need: a chain tool, a new chain, and a quick-link.

Put the chain on the cog and on the smallest chainring. 

Remove the quick-release link using the quick-release chain tool and then remove the chain from the drive train.

Put the new chain on the last of the cogs and on the smallest chainring. This makes it easier to determine its optimal length.

Pull the chain down, pass it under the upper pulley of the derailleur.

Once you've defined the correct length, use the chain tool to cut the chain.

Lastly, install the quick-link onto the chain, turn the pedal so as to position the quick-link on the upper part of the chain, and use your hand to apply pressure and ensure it is firmly locked in place.
