Designed to help you break new ground on your first forays into mountain biking. Push yourself and have fun as you take on the obstacles in your path and soak up nature. Putting your comfort first and giving you an easy ride: CGF frame with upright riding position, 80mm suspension, WOMEN'S hammock saddle with Flex seat post and 27.5" wheels (26" in XS).
The recommended average tyre pressure is 1.8 bar.
Your handlebar is set in the highest position to help keep your back raised, which is the most comfortable position for riding.
For improved aerodynamics and more effective pedalling, you can lower your handlebars to lower your body. This will cause you to lean forward and adopt a racing position.
Follow the steps in this video to move the headset spacers below the stem and lower the handlebars on your bike.
The BTWIN U-Fit fork has been designed to make adjusting it as easy as can be. A genuine innovation: weigh yourself and then turn the thumbwheel on the fork until your weight appears in the window. This will make the spring harder or softer, in line with your weight.
There's no need to bed in your V-brakes and pads. You should know, however, that when the pads come into contact with the black trim on your rims for the first time it will make quite a noise. Don't worry, though. As you use your bike and apply the brakes more and more, a fine film of rubber will form over the rims and the noise will gradually disappear.
When you take your new bike out for a ride for the first time, a lot of parts move around and fall into place. You'll hear the spokes on your wheels creak because of the residual torsion in them. Your bike is fitted with double-walled rims, which help make the wheels more solid. That means they should not buckle in any way at all. If they do, then call in at one of our DECATHLON workshops to have them repaired free of charge: 1. As part of a free check-up in the first six months following the date of purchase. 2. As part of our €1 damage insurance plan (valid for two years). Message for parents: young riders like to do tricks on their bikes (wheeling, skids, jumping off kerbs, etc). If done too often, however, they can cause play in the rear hub and buckle the wheels. If your child performs these tricks on a regular basis, speak to them and let them know the problems they can cause.
It's a sad fact of cycling that everyone gets punctures. - The terrain (thorns, bramble bushes, glass, nails, etc)
There are one or two things you can do to make your fork "softer":
There could be several reasons why your gears (chainrings) are not shifting correctly.
There could be several reasons why your gears (cogs) are not shifting correctly.
The lever is spongy and/or touches the handlebars before you can brake: Loosen the thumbwheel and the locknut to adjust the cable tension so that the brake lever is firm but not too hard. Once you've got the setting right, tighten the locknut against the brake lever.
So you've broken your chain.You've got two options: 1. Repair it yourself with the help of this video. You'll need a chain tool and a quick-release link. 2. Drop in at one of our DECATHLON workshops and have it done by one of our technicians.
The following tutorial videos tell you everything you need to know to repair or replace certain parts on your bike.

To clean your bike properly, you'll need some bike cleaner, a sponge and a brush. Spray the bike with a hose before applying the cleaning products. Use the sponge and brush to apply the products. Allow the product to act before rinsing the bike. Rinse it from a distance to avoid damaging mechanical parts. Finally, dry the bike with a soft, clean, dry cloth.
To clean and lubricate your drive train, you will need a degreaser spray, a soft bristled brush and a lubricant. The first step involves covering the brake disc with a clean cloth to prevent any lubricant from getting on to it. Then apply the degreaser to the whole of the drive train and scrub the cassette, chain and derailleur jockey wheels with the brush. Leave to act for a few minutes before rinsing the degreaser off from a suitable distance. Allow the drive train to dry before applying the lubricant. Shake the lubricant and apply to the inside of the chain, where it will work best.
Is your drive train cable dirty, rusty or damaged or are your gear changes stiff, random or not as slick as they should be? If so, the cable needs changing. You'll need a pair of pliers, a screwdriver, cable cutters, an Allen key and a new derailleur cables and housings kit. Start by removing the cable from the housing. Remove the hood from the gear shifter, move the indicator to the last gear and cut the cable. This will allow you to remove all of the cable and then the housing. Cut the housing to size and fit the end caps on the end of the cable, which is now ready to fit. Thread the cable through the shifter and push it through the housing. Then put the hood back on the shifter and attach the cable to the derailleur. To adjust the drive train, tighten the cable if the gears do not shift up easily and slacken it if they do not shift down smoothly. Finally, cut the cable and use the pliers to attach the end cap to it.
You need the following to repair a puncture: a pump, a basin of water, a cloth and an inner tube kit. Put a little pressure on the inner tube. To find the puncture, submerge the inner tube in the basin of water. Once you've spotted it, dry the inner tube with a cloth and scrape the area around it with the sandpaper provided in the kit. Scraping the inner tube will allow the glue to adhere better. Apply the glue generously around the hole and wait for three to five minutes. Place the patch over the hole and hold it there for a few minutes. You can then fit your inner tube back into the tyre.
You will need the following: a chain tool, a new chain and a quick-release link. Put the chain on the cog and on the smallest chainwheel. Remove the quick-release link using a 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 chainwheel. This makes it easier to determine its optimal length. The chain should pass close to the top pulley of the upper jockey wheel on the derailleur. Once you've determined the length of the chain, use the chain tool to cut it as required. Then fit the quick-release link on the chain and turn the pedal to position the quick-release lever on the top part of the chain. Press it with your hand to check that it is on the right position.
There’s always a risk of picking up a puncture when you’re out and about on your bike, which is why you need some puncture repair spray. The spray fills the inside of the tyre with foam, allowing you to get back home.
