I'm thinking of buying either the B'TWIN Rockrider 340 or B'TWIN Rockrider 500

I need to have quick release wheels, so I can put in the back of my saloon car and the wheels in the boot

I can't see any information on their website

Does anyone know?

Thanks


Omar

    on the 340 scroll down to the technical section and you will see it has QR front but not back. The 500 from the pics looks like it does as well.

    Although it only takes few seconds to undo two nuts.

    thanks for the replies guys

    i don't mind reading
    i do hate wasting time :)

    but... how long would it take to take off 2 nuts?
    (a complete newbie question of course)

    out of the 2, i guess the choice is to go for the 500 model?
    the thing is... i'd really like to get into riding the bike...
    but not sure if it will just sit in the garage after buying - so maybe i should save myself £100?

    Kind of a defeatist attitude but it seems to happen a lot. I would say go for the best your budget allows so the bike itself isn't the catalyst which put you off biking.

    This as well ^^^^^^^^^^

    The 520 is really the lowest spec actually usable actual mountain bike there which will be competent off road, and so fun.
