      After much research and checking both pro and customer reviews I'm pleased to say I'm very happy with my choice. Have ridden about 250km (only family holiday interrupted more outings) on the bike and find it a real pleasure to use. Everything just works smoothly. Surprisingly the saddle is fairly comfortable and now with a pair of B'Twin padded cycle shorts I've no complaints. Use it most days now and love riding it.
      Light weight, Shimano running gear. Fit of bike

      Had this bike for about 2 months now, I bought this to get into road cycling and before I'd commit to £1000 or over I thought I'd try this and see how I get on with it!, first impression it's a solid bike and the shimano Claris has plenty to offer considering it's in the bottom of the food chain as in the shimano groupsets, granted the gears needed a little adjustment but after that no problems at all, brakes are a shimano brand but not listed in any shimano hierarchy list!!, i will say from shop floor the brakes weren't that impressive to be honest but!! With a set of decent pads they have improved so don't let that put you off!!, as on the saddle I found it a nice place to be saddle is comfy and the riding positon was ok for me but there is plenty of adjustment I.e handle bars, flip the stem to raise it a bit etc etc, when really pushing it and laying down the power there is a little flex in the frame as you can hear the front mech making a little noise on every power stroke but nothing to worry about I'm not the lightest of fellas and it's been absoulelty fine with me, it's a very solid bike for the money so it well worth it for a new roadie getting into the sport or even a winter bike/ everyday commuter as it does have mountings for mud guards. Also you can go up a few tyre sizes in width which is also a bonus for a newbie or a commuter as the skinny 25s can be a bit much for some people!, wheels and hubs are very standard I've had to tighten up my spokes a couple times so keep an eye out for that (but the roads don't help with this), weight wise it's not the lightest but it's pretty light considering you have 3 chainrings upfront and not the best components that's not really a con to be honest let's just say picking it up with one hand is easy peasy just thought I'd add, overall 10/10 for the price and to be honest thanks to this bike I'm am now looking to upgrade to a road bike I would really like!
      Good looking, solid bike, price, components

      Just back from 9 days touring round France covering 613km or 381 miles and the bike was fantastic. 0 mechanical issues and rode really well even with the all the kit strapped to it. I upgraded the tyres to 700 x 28 puncture resistant ones with slime filled inner tubes. Also added Decathlon rear rack and pannier, water bottle cages, gel filled saddle cover, waterproof saddle cover, BTwinn 500 speedometer and other brand mudguards and handlebar bag and the bike performed faultlessly. Not a single thing went wrong with the bike and if you are touring then upgrading up to 700 x 28 tyres is a great choice.

      Looking forward to riding this bike without all the packs on it to see how it handles but if you want to convert it to touring like me then you won't regret it. Much lighter than traditional touring bikes saving your legs on uphill sections!
    • Really nice ride, stiff, responsive frame

      I've had the XL size bike for about 2 weeks now and I'm really pleased with it. I've come from the original triban 3 and this feels lighter with a bigger, sturdier frame and the Sora groupset is a lot more comfortable. It's been great on the commute, responsive but safe. The frame did feel a little more upright than I was used to but I'm completely comfortable with it now. For the price there's no room for complaint at all.
      Response of the brand
      Dear Sir,
      Thanks for posting this review of your new bike. The new Triban frame is proving to be very popular particularly due to the excellent tyre clearance it offers.
      Happy cycling!

      This is a beautifully balanced and responsive cycle that I have had just over a week but it has tempted me onto the road most evenings to cover over 100 miles so far. The guys at the Bolton Decathlon have been really helpful in finding me the correct bike and setting it up for me for maximum enjoyment and comfort and when I took it back in for a few tweaks after covering many miles they had it running smoothly again in record time. The Shimano gears change easily and positively and the cassette holds a good range of cogs to suit most conditions.
      Light, nimble and responsive yet stable
      Pedals a bit narrow for me
