Rockrider 300 (2016) - BTwin, Bike from D├ęcathlon

My birthday present - A commuter and winter bike. Added fenders and rack, replaced the candlestick post, and am so far quite happy with it. Replaces/ backs up this commuter bike.

I added faster and 'puncture protected' 1.35" tires (34mm), but should have taken that into account BEFORE adding the fenders. The geo is similar to my CX road bike with a slightly higher BB shell. Notably, frame, stem and cranks are all steel.

The wheels are ..a disgrace: "Single-wall aluminium rims with 36 holes for increased durability. Quick-release front hub for easy removal of the wheel." Sooner or later, I might replace the rear wheel. Also, disk sockets and a 'compact' double crankset would have been nice to have.
