Before anyone pipes up yes this bike is rubbish in comparison to a £500 bike. So with that said:

For an entry level budget this is a great looking bike, bearing in mind that tescos and sports directs cheapest raod bikes are £125 and they are rubbish another £75 on top of that is quite a jump but this is the best sub £200 road bike there is. (I doubt anyone can argue otherwise)

Currently only in 54,57 and 60cm frames, yes it doesn't have the traditional look road bike bars but that may suit some people who dont like the low down position that raod bikes normally have.

what size would be good for a 5'11 rider?
1 Like #2
Looks more like a hybrid bike.
#3
5'11 is in between the 54 and 57. but to be sure you want to try it. this is a good buy, but is actually a hybrid bike, not a road bike.
#4
I'm 5 9 and do a 54 cm frame. As already said nip down to a bike shop and try couple of sizes out.

I'd probably go with a 57cm
#5
if I was a bit taller.
#6
Are there likely to be any sales on bicycles after Christmas?

I'm looking at getting one around this price but not in a great rush so could wait a few weeks.
banned#7
Its a good deal, but in all honesty if your looking for a £200 bike buy used never new. Heat added as good deal.
banned#8
Decathlon are top notch value. Unless you are entering the tour de France next year, why pay more?

Had to lol at the guy I saw the other morning who thought he was in the tour de France, he appeared to be wearing a wet suit.

Naa. Don't like it advertised as a road bike. It isn't. Road bikes are defined by the drop bars. This is just a road bike frame with normal mountain bike stuff.

Hot from me. Nice looking bike too.

Good price but it looks like decathlon has strange pricing policy. The same bike is £170 in Poland

Erm, yes, it is. I am incredibly well versed in this field. If you were to turn up at many a road race with this bike you would probably be refused entry. Mainly because it is not a road bike. Does the UCI classify it as a road bike? No. It doesn't classify such bikes as road bikes.
Secondly, it is just a slightly aggressive hybrid bike in terms of its geometry. It doesn't have road gearing. Firstly it is a triple chainring set up which is hardly used nowadays and is more for certain mountain bikers and touring bikers although mountain bikers are moving towards single chain rings for reliability and weight. In addition, the chain rings are not big enough in terms of gearing for them to be a proper road bike system.
Definitely a HYBRID.

You are all so far off its embarrassing, us keen cyclist would describe this as an adult push bike. Im definitely more knowledgeable in this genre than most humans. therefore I am always right.
REMEMBER...push bike for adults.

Loads of road bikes run on triples - (wouldn't ride one myself obviously)

Love these geeky bike replies that somehow are rude in their "approval" of any bike deal under £3000
so funny. As 99.99% of the people here are not professional athletes and use a bike to either get from A to B, exercise or get away from the nagging wife I take such advice with a big pinch of salt.

HOT DEAL!!!!!!

Try pick up a red Triban 3 if you want an entry level road bike, but this, as MAdam98 points out is very much hybrid.

Proud owner of a Triban 7, and value for money is superb. Not sure how much use one would get with a road bike this time of year mind you.

Rule 5!! Mine is still getting the use, until I sort myself out a cyclocross bike!

Just because someone's wearing all the kit doesn't mean they think they're in the Tour De France! They were probably wearing full length bottoms because it's f**king freezing!

And of course, rule 9! X)

That said, just not feasible for me for commuting for a multitude of reasons and the weather in the Scottish winter just doesn't lend itself for leisure. I tend to either head to the gym, or do other sports in the colder, wetter and icier months. As much as Id love a cyclocross, just couldn't justify it...
#21
Nice bike. I'd crush it with my heavy self.
#22
As mentioned, not a true road bike as there are no drops, but obviously could be used on a road and those look like nice free running wheels and tyres with little resistance. My road bike has a triple gear set and I love it as I am quite unfit and I need it at the first sign of a steep hill or strong wind, for those seasoned bikers, this is clearly not for them, but for your average Joe, its a keenly priced nice bike. 11.4KG isn't that heavy either, and if you need to drop the weight a couple of kilo's ride everyday for a couple of months and the rider bike package will soon be a few kilo's down, lol ;)
Hot from me :)

Been toying with that idea myself but buying used could mean the bike needs a good (£60-100) service. If your not sure what your looking out for and buying new means you can try the type of bike out and if you don't like it return it or if theres any problems then your covered.

I have just bought a Vertigo Carnaby from tesco for £125, as all i need it for is getting back to fitness after snapping my tib and fib in half when playing football.

robertoegg: Clearly we are still awaiting your opinion of how good the bike is? Your comment was pointless and has only gone to make you look like an idiot, if you have nothing useful to say why post?

As for my limited knowledge when it comes to road bikes the only thing that stops this from being a legit road bike is the handle bars. So technically its a hybrid but i'm only going with what Decathlon have it listed as.
#25
Nice price, nice spec, good customer service.

It seems like a "flat bar road bike", i.e. road size wheels (700c), road brakes, style etc. You could call it a hybrid, but hybrids range from mountain bike style with 26in wheels, suspension forks, discs/cantis/calipers, to ridged, to 700c road style narrow wheels/tyres etc.

As for £200 new vs used. This is a good spec machine for £200. You could also get something decent used for £200, but you need to know what you are looking for, you may need to allocate some budget for worn out parts (cheap enough with tyres, expensive if it the chainset etc), you may also need tooling/skills to maintain key areas such as bottom bracket and headset. Finally the second hand market in bikes is not such a bargain these days, IMO a lot of people paying over the odds, certainly on Ebay, but I have had a few lucky bargains over the years.

My only warning with this bike would be don't consider it if you are seriously thinking about getting into "road" riding and expecting to add drop bars in the near future, the bars may be cheap but the shifter/brake levers will cost at least half the price of the bike.

Certainly a fine bike for fitness, leisure, commuting, training etc.

It was definite Rule 9 on Saturday, frost on the road & having to thaw my hands off the handlebars when I got back. I've tried an exercise bike but it bores me. So have learnt to enjoy of riding into a cold wind blowing off the Sea. Having to pedal to go down hill as the coastal wind was stopping me coasting! However I do appreciate your predicament up in the icy North! Oh & you can justify a cyclocross bike...... Rule12!!

Im not sure if they are still stocking them, been a while since i got mine. I do know they had some not that long back and pretty sure there were deals on here for them but it has gained a huge cult following. The spec/price value is sensational. I personally would of had one myself but didn't have my frame size in Decathlon when i travelled through to collect and really couldn't get along with the shifters.

Shimano do but SRAM don't do 3 ring road groupsets. This is a mountain bike groupset. Although it's cheap it's neither here nor there, why not go full road bike or hardtail?
