      Used for 3 to 6 months
      I have had this bike for a reasonable time now (6 months) and can confidently say this was the best £300 I have ever spent. The bike is up there with the best that I have ridden: smooth, comfortable, fast and very agile (I have been on a number of bikes as I am a keen triathlete from Cannondales to Meridas and lower price lemons as well!). The value is phenomenal - I have had no reliability problems whatsoever and I am very impressed with the gears, the frame, the solid wheels and the general handling of the bike. The Microshift system is just as good as Shimano: it is effortless and smooth so cast aside any snobbery you may have! I use it generally as a reliable commuter but I have used it in a Duathlon at Rockingham speedway. For a 19km course I clocked 35 minutes which is simply a respectable result - the bike can be used for sportives and sprint triathlons in my view and if you were to upgrade both the wheels and the tyres you would have a very swift machine indeed. The only thing I have changed on the bike is to install a pair of Michelin Lithion 2 tyres which have worked nicely with the bike. So if you are looking for a very solid, comfortable and reliable commuting/training bike then go ahead and buy it you will not regret it. All of the positive reviews here are pretty much spot on.

      I've had this bike for 6 months now and I'm really enjoying riding it. I did my research before buying and bought it for the frame mainly. I'm really pleased with how comfortable the ride is and the frame is very responsive - it took a while to gain confidence on the bike because of this.
      I've upgraded the wheels and tyres to Shimano RS11 and Continental GT meaning I can have the originals for my turbo trainer.
      The bottom bracket has started to wear but this is being replaced under warranty, no problems.
      I think in time I'll continue to upgrade some of the other parts, but as my first road bike, I'm very impressed. Sure, I could have spent a lot more money, but what would I get for that? Maybe a bike that is a few pounds lighter, but I can lose a few those few pounds and keep the money. A great bike, especially for a newbie.

      I just bought this bike as my first road bike, I have previously been using an MTB, and the difference is massive. The Triban 500 SE is incredibly light, the gears change smoothly, the brakes are very responsive, and it is in general a fast and smooth ride. I would thoroughly recommend this to any looking for a road bike at a reasonable and suitable price.
      Gears, lightweight, brakes...basically everything

      In the short time I've owned this I have to say I am in love. I love the way the bike looks and feels and the weight is surprisingly light. I only had a couple of small issues, though. Firstly, the gears were slightly out of alignment, which of course is an easy fix. Secondly, I have a 2 inch scratch running down my pedal arm. It doesn't bother me much, as over time they will get scratched anyway. I would reccomend this to anyone and Decathlon, you certainly have my custom!

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Having recently moved from a quiet rural location to a big city, I needed a reliable road bike to get around. Having looked at reviews and recommendations, I decided to buy the Triban 500 SE.

      I am extremely happy that I did as it's the best road bike I've ever owned (4 Previous bikes, none coming close to the Triban 500).

      It's light, easy to ride and ultimately has a very robust build quality. Upon arrival, the setting up was very easy. The only thing I did have to do was change the tension on the gearing cables, which is an easy enough job.

      I've done over 200 miles so far, and am looking forward to many more miles spent on this excellent value, nifty and reliable road bike.
