    My previous road bike which I used for years mainly for commuting was good for its day but so far I have been very impressed with the more modern technology on the Triban in particular the ease of gear changing. To make the bike more city friendly I have changed to 28mm treaded tyres and added Fend-Off mudguards without difficulty and the bike still feels light and responsive. In general the bike has well exceeded my expectations
  • First ever road bike

    New comer to road cycling options were buy something second hand off eBay or buy a brand new one. The reason I chose a brand new one is so knew it would not be faulty and if it were I had a warranty to fall back on.

    I had nothing to compare the bike to but as a first bike I am so happy with it. The bike seems to have a comfortable riding position, nice range of gears. It seems extremely light and sturdy. I have averaged around 100 miles a week on the bike since owning it. Completed a 200 mile charity bike ride and continued to cycle to work and back each day with no problems from this bike. This is definitely a good place to start if you're just starting cycling and trying the sport out. Some of my friends brought second hand bikes off eBay and then had to spend few hundred on them getting them safe for the road. This bike seems really good value for money.
  • Fantastic value

    Having read the press reviews I purchased the Triban 520 as a spare bike to leave at our holiday home. Its good enough for me to question why I paid £2000 for my carbon fibre road bike!! Pretty smooth and comfortable enough for 130 Km rides plus handles well. The only criticism would be that a compact would be better than a triple.
  • Excellent Road Bike

    This is my first road bike and it is great. I purchased a M frame size and I am 5'11 with a 31 inseam. If you are like: 5'10, 6ft, 6'1 or 6'2 with a 31 inseam, this should still be the correct size. A size down can be adjusted but if you purchase a size up then it can be uncomfortable, with minimal to no adjustments possible, so just wait and buy the correct size and if you're really unsure then go to halfords or a local bike shop to get measured or a Decathlon store.

    Once the bike arrived I put it together, most the bike is already fitted just few things like lights and handlebars needed fitting which is easily done as they provide all the tools. I adjusted the saddle height and distance forward and it fits me well. I can hop on easy, hop off easy and I have rode for over 2 hours with a few stops but have not felt uncomfortable.

    On delivery, the bike itself was fine, however 1 of the wheel lights were broken and I was missing 1 allen key tool but I had a spare. The box doesn't feel the most secure but it actually does hold the bike well but it looked like a used box, and finally I did not receive the cardboard bike stand which if you check their btwin bike video, the guy has it come with his bike. Delivery was a bit slow like waited more than a week. I'm assuming it was out of stock and I'm not surprised.

    The brakes. They're good don't get me wrong, however for some people it "may" be better if changed. The stopping needs more pressure on the levers to feel like the breaks are doing their job and to feel the resistance, but they work fine. It wasn't a big issue for me, but if you don't like applying a bit more pressure to feel the stopping force then upgrade the brakes. I'm gonna wait until they have worn out though before changing. Triple chainring crankset is not for everyone.

    The bike is comfortable, easy gear changing, corners well. It was this or the giant contend 2, and I know I chose correctly as a first bike.


    Some Notes:

    1. The bike wheels have a Presta Valve not Schrader so make sure you get the correct bike pump.
    2. If it is your first bike/roadbike then make sure you register your bike with decathlon and bikeregister.com - you may not know that you can register. Bike thieves love road bikes more than others.
    3. You should watch GCN on youtube for general great bike advice.

    Finally, I had not rode a bike in like a decade and I almost had to relearn, but after 2 days I'm pretty good at riding this. The actual control of the bike seems more sensitive than a standard bike, I think the word is, "nimble", but it is so much fun when you are use to it; especially on fast descents. I purchased the bike to add cycling to my workout routine, to help me lose just under 50lbs left. Already lost 70 since November 2017. Diet is key.

    I hope this review has helped someone in even the slightest way, that is why I wrote it, to assist someone as I was struggling to make a decision too.

    Thanks for reading!

    This is my first road bike and is a a good introduction model if you've never had one before. Had a few issues with the gears change, partly due to my lack of knowledge about how the gears work. Took it back in a couple of times and the staff at Southampton Decathlon have been really helpful and sorted it out within 5 minutes.
