You could buy 15 BSO's for the price of one of these!

Grim paint finish though....

The way you change gears is also a bit weird. I can see that going wrong the next time you want to brake!!

It's still the same method in that you move the lever inwards to change gear, I appreciate SRAM and Campag are slightly different as far as double tap and thumb shift.

Neither affect braking though, anyway, good deal :)

He mentioned about braking, down shifting on a Shimano setup can cause an accidental brake.

I've been riding Shimano since 105 5500 was released and never had an accidental brake when downshifting. I assume by accidental brake you mean operator error?

Heat added. Great value for full 105.

Not entirely full. The chainset and cassette aren't 105, not sure about the chain. Still a good deal.
#21
I voted cold by accident - that's a great price for a 105 set up.
#22
This looks like a good deal. I'm not sure about the square profile of that tubing, from either an aesthetic or comfort perspective. And the rear brake mounted to underneath the chain stays seems like an odd decision for a budget road bike - they're bound to get more full of crap down there and require more maintenance, and it's not as if it's going to provide any aero advantage on a bike of this type.

But as a first road bike or a winter steed (notwithstanding that rear brake issue) it's very good value for the groupset it comes with.

Get your employers cycle scheme code. Go on cyclescheme.co.uk, type in your employers code, choose which decathlon store you will use (that doesnt matter too much, you can use it in any decathlon store), decide what value you want for the voucher and apply for a voucher

Don't know what is going on with their pricing structure, but the 500se was £379 in September, then reduced to £350, and earlier in December it went down to £330. I was on the verge of buying one but was just going to see what happened after Christmas, its now gone up to £420 but with a banner saying "was £379". Looks like its back to eBay for a barely ridden second hand bike instead.

Yes they are. They do it via http://www.cyclescheme.co.uk/retailers/

Some retailers have their own version (like Halfords and Evans) some use a shared scheme.

Heat. Amazing bike for this sort of cash. You could at some point get a similar giant for not a lot more. But the extra features like concealed cabling and the lightweight crank on Alur make it a better buy.
It's what a bike shop sales person would call an entry level road bike:) And what is in fact an amazing road bike.

Don't know where you got that info but they are on the Cycle To Work Scheme and another scheme (can't remember the name of the 2nd scheme - but you can find out if you call your local store).

Well, in June of this year, they weren't. I phoned and was told they were not on it. Maybe an error but I ended up going to tredz instead !

How would you accidentally brake when shifting down? I've never done that, can't see how you could?

When pushing the brake lever inwards to shift, some people pull it in an arc (inwards and towards the rider) which means you could apply the brakes. I can't imagine anyone locking the wheels up by accident but there's a slim possibility that someone could brake when shifting.

Looks like a really nice bike, great for entry level to advanced riders

The brake lever is the downshift lever, if you pull it on an angle you can.

Still showing the same price: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/alur-700-road-bike-id_8290145.html
Should this be un-expired, or post the same deal again?
The 300, 500, and 500 SE are currently showing "Price Drop" tags too.
