    • Great Bike, Great Spec, Great Value for Money

      Having ridden mountain bikes for many years this is the first ever road bike I have owned and it doesn't disappoint! It's light-weight, has a good spec, rolls smooth/freely/quietly, the Shimano 105 groupset works very well and the B'Twin equipment is all good too.
      I've swapped the factory-fit platform pedals for Shimano 105 5800 SPD-SL clipless road bike pedals, changed the saddle to something a little more comfortable (Selle Italia Gel Flow) and I have fitted Continental Grand Prix 4 Season tyres as I'm wanting to use the bike all-year-round for training/commuting/pleasure (there is nothing wrong with the factory-fit equipment though!).
      Having ridden everyday since having the bike I find it very comfortable - the guys in the store (Guiltbrook) set up the bike very well; the only thing I adjusted was the seat height and pumped up the tyres to a slightly higher PSI. The gear changes are smooth/effortless, braking is sharp/efficient, the Mavic Aksium wheels are light-weight & strong and the frame is good/well made.
      I spent a good amount of time looking at road bikes and nothing seemed to match or beat the Triban 540 with regards to spec for the money and build quality, hence why I made the purchase. I'm extremely happy with the bike so far and hope to get many hundreds of miles out of it.
      I can easily give it 5 stars and I highly recommend this product.

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      My last bike, Triban 300, served me exceptionally well for 3 years. When I was looking to upgrade, the 540 looked like the best spec available for the price. I've always had good service in store and online from Decathlon, so I didn't take much persuading to go for it. I've had the bike for nearly 4 moths now and couldn't be happier with it. As much as I'd love to have a garage full of bikes for different occasions, I have to make do with one all-rounder and this does the job nicely. It's sturdy and comfortable enough for my daily commute and good fun on a weekend. The spec is top notch for the price and the frame is surprisingly good. The 105 groupset doesn't miss a beat and the Mavic Aksium wheels are a good compromise of weight and strength. The carbon fork makes a huge difference to the aluminium one I had on my last bike. Can't recommend the product highly enough. A quick note about the in-store service though - it could have been better. I had to hunt down and wait for a member of staff as it appeared he was the only one on the bike department that day. I was there around lunchtime on a Saturday, so I would have expected more staff to be available than that. To give him his due, he was having to deal with customers while operating the workshop too, so he clearly had his hands full, but he couldn't have shown less interest. I asked him if he could help me choose the correct size. He looked me up and down and told me I would need a large. I was skeptical, and after trying a couple of sizes decided to go for the medium. There was only one left, which had slight damage to the clear-coat on the frame. When I pointed this out to him, he proceeded to scratch at it, making it worse (incidentally, he said he would touch up the clear-coat before I collected - he didn't and I'd lost the will to argue by that point) He said he couldn't knock any money off the bike but could throw in a bottle cage. I asked him if he could order one in to store. He said he couldn't,. At that point there were no medium frames available to order online, so I decided to take the one I had. He gave me a barcode to go and pay for it and told me to collect it in an hour or so. When I returned, there was no member of staff to be seen. When I found one, he told me the guy I had been dealing with had been taken to deal with a delivery. When he eventually returned, he fitted some different pedals for me as requested, which was good. The whole experience was less than perfect, and it clearly wasn't his fault he was getting dragged from pillar to post. Fair play to him for cracking on and doing what he could, but there wasn't any acknowledgement, never mind an apology, for the inconvenience. I'd be disappointed with that level of service when ordering a coffee, never mind spending a decent amount of money on a bike. The bike gets 5 stars, the service gets 2. As I've said, I've always had good experiences from Decathlon, so hopefully this was a one-off.
    • Mudguards

      What mudguards are best for this bike. Is has mudguard outlets , but can't see where to screw the front mudguard to the top of the fork
      Response of the brand
      The best mudguard is the SKS Blumells 35mm. You have to remove your front brake to fit the clamp under the forks. Alternatively, the SKS racebalde requires tool free fitting as is also very effective.

    • Fantastic spec and ride for the money

      Really pleased with the spec, and ride quality of the bike - nothing I'd found anywhere else came close to matching this amount of bike for the money (or considerably more!) Bought as a replacement commuting / winter ride.
      Definitely a 5 star review for the bike.
      However, worth noting that I ordered online as store member gave completely inaccurate sizing advice (on crank lengths and reach to stem). If staff don't know an answer, get them to say so and find out, don't make it up! Some of us are experienced enough to know / check...
      On delivery, bike set up was poor. e.g. Rear brake not properly torqued to cable - pulled through on testing (Not on the road!). Rear tyre incorrectly fitted with an huge unrideable flat spot - had to remove and refit as tyre was deformed.
      Just a few points to check... Bike still deserves the 5 stars though!
