    I upgraded to this from a 520 after about 10 weeks and realising that I'd gotten the wrong size but getting the cycling bug. I was already looking at maybe upgrading the wheels on the 520 as its a fairly heavy bike when compared to it's nearest big name rivals but when I did the maths I realised that I'd basically be getting a 105 upgrade for next to nothing so went for it and havent looked back.

    The only thing I have to complain about is the Decathlon set up. They didn't bother with the limit screws at all and the quick release was so tight I had to borrow tools from a LBS to loosen them.

    I'm already wondering whether I should get the 720 in the summer as a sportive machine and use this for everyday rides.

  • Lovely First Road Bike, Poor Customer Service

    I bought this bike as my first road bike and on first impressions, it's a lovely bike being quick, responsive and fun to ride. It's also has a much higher spec than offerings from big name brands in the same price bracket meaning it's great value for money! As an additional plus, It also has the mounts for a pannier rack should you wish to use it for commuting or touring.

    I'd give it 5 stars if just judging the product alone, however unfortunately the accompanying service from the Surrey Quays store has been less impressive. I first had to argue with the sales rep that they even sold a drop bar Triban 540 despite one being on display, and then was met with reluctance when I asked them to order in an XL size. Eventually they agreed and got one in for me a few days later. When I returned to the store, the sales rep made no effort to fit the bike to my size, and since getting it home, I've discovered that the back brake rubs and so does the chain in the highest gears. I appreciate these issues can be rectified with a few tweaks by myself but it's not the quality of set up you'd expect for spending several hundred pounds.
  • Great spec on the bike, poor customer service

    The bike has a great spec for the price and rides really well when set up properly, but the store I went to couldn't set it up.

    My review is based on the whole experience and not just the bike. I had to wait 2 weeks for the bike and during that time I was told it would be in store in 4 days, then the end of the week, then that it wasn't in stock and finally after asking for a refund 45 minutes later the bike appeared,

    When I went to collect the bike it was missing simple things such as the lights (I never did get a set) reflectors (which are a legal requirement for selling a bike in the U.K.) and the bars weren't straight.

    On my first test ride I noticed chain rub throughout almost the entire range of gears. Every time I've bought a bike from Decathlon I've had similar experience great quality terrible service.
    Response of the brand
    Hello James,

    If you could please reply to the e-mail you have received from Peter we can set things in motion to get these problems sorted by the store where you bought the bike.
