No. it seems like the code excludes special edition bikes. I didn't realise this and it may be a recent change.

It's a Carbon frame, but not a particularly good one. I'd go for the the Ultra AF 700 at this price point. Much better frame.

Doesn't even have full suspension! cold!
nice bike. I would buy Mrs would kill me if I spent this much on a second bike. any suggestions on what Road bike to get for £500?
I'd suggest the btwin triban 540 from Decathlon currently reduced from £600 to £450. Carbon fork, 6061 alu frame which can take mudguards and panniers if required. 105/tiagra mix gearing. Mavic wheels, 25mm hutchison tyres. Will cover most needs very well and has great reviews. Triban 540 £450
Sorry, looks like the £450 deal was on last years stock. New stock is full eleven speed 105 + Michelin Lithion 2 tyres now £650 (stilla baragain but a better bike at higher price). I'm told there may be a few of the old stock available in store if you want to check - they will sometimes move stock from one shop to another on request. I know there is one Small in Oxford as someone who works there told me!

​Have you seen how many different types of pedal there are? As masterbruce says, riders have their own preferences, for example I use to toe clips instead of cleats and there are big pedals, small pedals, lollipop pedals...


Not making fun of you but no idea about all these. I just know there's something called pedals to move cycle forward :)

Great bike ... Worth upgrading the wheels ASAP which will make a huge difference
But if you're paying £1100, then that brings the other Ribble specials with Ultegra into budget, once you take the 5% discount into account.

Yeah that's very good value, and decathlons customer service is beyond fantastic (really is).

But that colour scheme :{
I was going to get one of these for the comfy frame design, but got carried away on eBay and bought something a bit more racey. If it doesn't work out, then I'll be back for one of these.

I bought this in large frame 56cm with largest bar width of 44cm, and 90mm stem. weights 8.6kg without pedals. can be lightened further esp seat post feels a little heavy. will need to get the weight of my belly first though that's far more then might start looking to upgrade components at later date.. styling is little bland too ( has their website address on the seat strays looks tacky) might do something about that too later. Ride is smooth with crisp steering (compared to my kids Triban 3) .

Bike came with a few small scruffs on the wheel spokes and handlebar end-plugs. Also handle bar tape had some dirt that feels permanently glued on. So wast too impressed.

Sora Groupset is the cheapest of the Shimao range
For anyone who cares:The Shimano Hierarchy
Shimano make quality components that fit out a good percentage of bikes in the pro peloton. However, they are fully aware that not everyone is willing or able to fork out for pro-worthy components. Groupsets begin with Claris – which is still good quality and hard-working
There's also Tourney below Claris. I've never seen it sold as a complete groupset, but cheaper bikes come with it, and you can buy the components, e.g. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Shimano-Tourney-ST-A070-shifter-2x7-fach/dp/B00HECAD7M

£30 off at the moment with the spend and save. Great bike - more pretty than expected, and as much as I may wish it was a Sora or such, it shifts fine and gets you places at a pace.
I just posted a coupon for £30 off the Prime as well as £10 off other bikes £100+ ,£30 off £250 or more and £65 off £500 + bikes.

Edited By: DARKSABER on Aug 10, 2016 13:37
I've been delighted with my Ribble Prime which I bought around three months ago. Great to ride and nicely finished. It's too early for me to offer a definitive judgement about the reliability of Shimano Claris - I've only had the bike three months, but the doubters in this comment thread come across as ill-informed individuals who assume that more expensive components are automatically more durable. This is not my experience with low-end Shimano components. I've commuted around 9,000 miles a year on a Shimano Tourney-equipped bike for the past two years and, with regular maintenance and cleaning, only had to replace the chain three times so far, the cassette once and the brake pads a couple of times. Cheap Shimano components tend to involve compromises in weight rather than durability so I find the "ride it until it wears out" comments idiotic - I doubt the components would wear out for many thousands of miles if they are properly serviced and consumables such as the chain, cassette and, eventually, chainrings are replaced when worn. Plus "ride it until it wears out" is a completely irresponsible attitude in terms of the unnecessary waste of steel/aluminium and the energy employed in manufacturing the parts in the first place.

I have the Triban 500SE and so far very happy with my choice. However it has Microshift gears and not Claris.
Apologies, you are correct I misread the tech specs on the Decathlon website swhich included some Claris components. I guess the miscroshift would probably give the 500Se an edge, though some have raised doubts about the long term durability of that sytem too, which is often cited as the main Claris problem. In either case I'd say, if you are starting out on roadbikes, you could use the bike till components need replacing then either upgrade or move on. Still not much between them and both offer a very good value entry level bike.
That's entirely my intention. Use it till it breaks then upgrade. The bike is not the rate limiting part of my cycling for now.
I can't speak for microshift, but I've yet to have shimano shifters break on me, even the cheap tourney stuff used in all weathers and generally abused over 20 odd years.

For £100 more, Planet X are offering their RTD-80 with hydraulic disc brakes. Link.
The Fulcrum Racing Sport wheels supplied with this are garbage. Mine lasted two months before the rear bearings died. They were replaced under warranty with so called uprated bearings with an extra seal. Three months later the front wheel bearings packed in - got these fixed at my local bike shop to save the hassle of boxing up and sending away the wheels. The final nail in the coffin was the rear bearings giving up the ghost a whole 7 months after they where initially replaced. Oh, and they wouldn't stay true for love nor money.

Im not heavy nor ride on particularly bad roads, I also remove wheels before I wash the bike.

My advice is budget for some better wheels in the near future.
furbix
Does it have compact cranks ?
Yes. The chainset is listed as 172.5mm 34/50. 172.5 mm is the length of the cranks, 34/50 is the number of teeth on the inner and outer chainrings, commonly referred to as compact. This compares to a "standard" chainset, with 39/53 teeth. More teeth in the chainring pull more chain per revolution (so you would go faster for the same pedal rate) but will need more force to turn (so you may compensate by changing down a gear at the rear, or pedalling more slowly).

What are the gear shifters like with these srams, do you move the brake lever to shift up or do you move the paddle?
Brake and shifting action are both operated by a single lever. Short stroke is for downshift, a longer one to shift upwards. Easy to get used to and works well. You just have to be more careful to begin with. I do prefer traditional Shimano approach though.
Thanks, so you swing the brake lever inward, and depending on how far you push it dependson whether it's up or down? Sounds quite different. How far do you need to swing in for upshift?I have 8 speed shimano2300 with thumbshifters and I find the length of swing to shift upwards quite excessive! What is the system that has 2 paddles, one for up and one for down?
You don't push the brake lever at all. That was misinformation. There is a single paddle beneath the break lever. One click for up, two clicks for down. I prefer it to the shimano option, though I did have cheaper shifters back then...
Thanks, so can you go up more than 1gear at a time? I assume you have to do single long pushes, my 2300 will shift up 3 sprockets i think with one long swing of the right brake lever.

You can only go up by one at a time but you can go down by up to three at a time.

To me they almost feel electronic, shifting fast with a very satisfying loud click. I'd advise you try it out and see if it's for you.

I've had the bike for around a week and been out for a couple of rides. Very happy with it. It also looks great - black and white and rather sleek. I was a bit concerned about the performance of Shimano Claris as it's Shimano's bottom-of-the-range groupset. However, this was unfounded as there seems to be very little difference between Shimano Claris and Sora in terms of shifting performance, judging against a mate's Specialized Allez bike with Sora. The only significant difference seems to be 8 vs 9 speeds, but given that my commuter bike is a 7 speed, 8 is quite enough.

Surprisingly the bike came with pedals, toe clips and straps, though I found them pretty awful and I've replaced them with clipless SPDs. It also came with a spare rear derailleur hanger, which is a nice touch in case the one fitted gets bent.

The brakes are unbranded but work fine and were well adjusted out of the box. The front and rear derailleurs are set up ok but will need a bit of tuning. There was a lot of rattle coming from one of the shifters but that was solved by greasing it. The bike comes with a decent number of headset spacers meaning that I've been able to raise the handlebar position - I'm used to commuting 30km on a hybrid so will need some time to adjust to the road bike riding position so that's useful.

Stem, bars and seatpost are all ITM "xx7". There's very little info about this range by ITM but it looks good and is a well-known brand. The carbon fork seems to absorb vibration effectively but isn't as quite comfy as my hybrid, but that has a much more upright riding position and 700x42c tyres to deal with towpaths and potholes. The handlebar tape is a bit thin and squidgy compare to the Specialized but you can't complain at this price.

I bought some gloves, a set of lights, CO2 inflator and a saddle bag from Aldi for under £20 which round off the package nicely. Also planning to fit clip-on mudguards (no mudguard eyes on the frame) and a lightweight rack (there are eyelets and bosses for a rear rack).

Overall, a lot of bike for £250. If it comes back in stock, highly recommended.

I appreciate your response back to me. I have got a road cycle a while ago, but actually have had the chance to take it for a spin. Been looking for a ideal quite day which isnt raining,. That hasn't happen for me, when ive had the free time.
I got it fairly cheap, on a deal from tescos direct. It's a Vertigo Carnaby 700c Unisex Road Bike. I cant seem to find any information if these tyres would be suited to it or not. I am no pro rider, but wanting to get into it on the cheap. This look a good way of doing so. Can you tell me, in your opinion do you think these tyres widths would be ok?
The tyres are not performance tyres so are not really for pros. Idewal for the occasional ride. Your bike will run a 700x23 easy, but might feel uncomfortable. Your bike will run a 23 width adna 25 width fine. I always buy 700x25. I would run 700x28 but my fork will not allow them to fit. I would imagine that you could probably run up to x28 width, if in doubt, cycle along to your local bike shop and ask them what the maximum width tyre you could run would be, they'd normally be happy to check. Whilst the tyres in this offer are not really for racing, they may prove uncomfortable for some.
when you say uncomfortable. Are you referring to fact that the width of the tyre is narrow, and thus the balance?
Where do you find the information for width of the tyre, on the tyre then? What would you be looking for?
It's not a matter of balance, but with a wider tyre you have more rubber in contact with the ground taking the impact from the road.
As i thought. I got a balance problem. Just trying to work out what tyres came with the bike i purchased

The tyres are not performance tyres so are not really for pros. Idewal for the occasional ride. Your bike will run a 700x23 easy, but might feel uncomfortable. Your bike will run a 23 width adna 25 width fine. I always buy 700x25. I would run 700x28 but my fork will not allow them to fit. I would imagine that you could probably run up to x28 width, if in doubt, cycle along to your local bike shop and ask them what the maximum width tyre you could run would be, they'd normally be happy to check. Whilst the tyres in this offer are not really for racing, they may prove uncomfortable for some.

Cracking bike should mention its carbon frame.
designaw... you can build the bike to your spec and probably get discount... http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/ribble-gran-fondo/

Good deal. If you want to change the components it's worth calling them and they'll quote you the difference to pay. I changed my wheels after I ordered and they were great at sorting it out.
Hot, although this ageing cyclist might pay a little more for a 12/28 :D

Looking for replacement front and rear wheels as mine were stolen from my triban 500. These look solid for commuting. Planetx has these for 99.99 so I think these are a good deal. Can someone post…

Can anyone recommend an ok rear gear cog that would basically replace the one i had on my triban 500se? i also need a spacer to go with the back gear cogs.
thanks for the heat, this is my first deal over 200 (over 0 i think).


You'll probably find that the spacers are included with the wheel and the cassette.
In terms of value for money I think that shimano 105 is a good bet - very marginally more expensive than the lower quality stuff.
I don't know what the spec is on the triban, how many speeds and what the gear range is. I'd look for 11-28 or something to get a good range (11 teeth on the highest gear, 28 on the lowest)

I just can't understand how someone would want to steal the wheels off a Triban 500. I love my '14 Triban 500 but the wheels don't look anything special!
the front had marathon 2 tyre and the rear a mitchelin reinforced slick so they probably looked nicer then normal. loved that tyre setup...

decent wheels, I have been through four sets of them. they last about 3000 miles with heavy use.
That's hard to believe - I've had second-hand wheels (i.e. already part-used) last twice as long as that. What are you doing to them?!
I commute every day to work in all weathers, 10 miles each way. flat out. I also live in Bath and North East Somerset and its hilly as hell, so the brakes get used a fair bit on steep descents. Believe me, its true!I have never had any set of wheels last 3000 miles. Either the rims go completely concave, or the hub gets destroyed. In which case, its not worth repairing, as they are cheap wheels anyway.

Yeah, it's just the brakes and fitting attachments (2x bolts).
thanks, thought I'd doubled check before I ordered cables also and ended up with unnecessary spares

I'm going to go out on one here and say that you could significantly improve your braking if you use some top rubber like the Swissstop Pro green jobbas. They will cost you less and you will notice a HUGE difference!
Must be some placebo going on as I switched to some expensive pads and didn't notice much difference at all. A bike service does make a huge difference though if you get them to adjust the brakes.

adjusting the brakes is a very simple thing to do (probably the easiest bit of bike maintenance you can do) no need to get the bike serviced for that.

When buying brakes such as this I assume they do not come with cables? thanks
If you want to improve stopping in all weathers buy Swissstop pads. They also increase life of your wheels.

Great price, not too keen on the rear spoke pattern though.

For an extra £19 they include tubes and gatorskins
Good spot I've got gatorskins on my commuting bike and have been quite impressed with them so far.

Offer code doesn't include complete bikes according to the website.
You're right.. Didn't see the small print

Swap the wheels and it's a beauty... Shame it's out of my price range.
Nice spec
