Expirience with the Rockrider ST 530 S

Rockrider ST 530 S Review When riding it as a tours with lots of high meters, the Downcountry-Bike of Rockrider really comes into its own. The 436 mm short chainstays make the bike playful and more maneuverable in tighter corners. The seating position can be described neither as sporty nor as comfortable. It has a moderate character. If you love flying down steep, rocky and loamy trails, the Downcountry-Bike of Rockrider doesn't really suit you. Other manufacturers build Downcountry-Bike in the same price range that are more focused on descends. For this, the shifting components are pretty much the best thing you can expect on a complete bike for 659 Euro . Check the size chart exactly before buying: the Rockrider Downcountry-Bike sizing runs small.
