That was when it was £379 it was subsequently reduced to £349 and is now even cheaper at £330 (click and collect). It's an absolute bargain. Decathlon also offer free service in first three months. For anyone interested in a real road bike at a knockdown price it's an absolute bargain. Availability in all frame sizes.

Bought this but regret buying. Chain broke after 120 miles, continual shifting problems with rear chain set and tyres had two punctures. Only had the bike 3 months. My previous Merlin S2200 was brilliant in comparison.

Decathlon will tweak any issues for free for 3 months so if you had continual shifting problems why didn't you get them sorted.

Broken chain? Can we rule out the newbie trick of cross chaining?

2 punctures? It happens! the Hutchinson tyres are fine for this level of bike.

Think this is the permanent price now. Might even come with Shimano (sora?) chainset/rear deraillier now ?

Think that's the other Triban 500 not the SE version in this deal.

Some of the early cheaper SE models were fitted with some Sora parts due to a lack of supply of the Microshift drivetrains, might be the odd Sora SE floating around but most will have been sold soon after release

is the in store price for real ?

What exactly is the difference between the two?

Also, for comfort and visability, aren't the flatbars and the more upright sitting position from them better than dropbars like the bike in this deal?
#12
is it self assembly?

Fantastic spec for the price. Hot!

"There are loads of other bikes in the B'Twin range designed for riders needing a more casual ride posture, but there's plenty of bar and stem position adjustment here, including a bolted spacer that sits directly above the headset and keeps the bearings adjusted correctly if you need to change the stem positioning."

Is this more of a bike that has a racing position? Some bikes seem to get me too much hunched low and forward, which I appreciate is good for racing, but the in the day-to-day slog, I'd want a more casual riding position. How does this compare?

Got one of these from the Stockport store in December. It did come with the Sora drivetrain.

Relievo, Decathlon click and collect price is now £330 just check the website. The £379 is the older price tag which still won it those awards - so it's an even better deal now. Btwin may be trying to shift older models as I believe they are due to have a new range coming in over spring/summer, either way it's good news for cyclists!

Pothead when you ordered it should either have told you bike was in stock at your preferred store or generated an order no and you'll get follow up email to give delivery date. Have to say decathlon do sometimes take a few days to get click and collect stock into specific store (presumably moving from one branch to another). I ordered a hlemet to pick up in Lakeside which took six days to arrive even though there was plenty of stock in Harlow. Still at the price and quality they generally offer I'm prepared to wait a few days.

Aliff, I imagine it will be like my Triban 3 where your have to put on handle bars and pedals if you order online. Very simple and there are instruction videos at decathlon online. If you order for strore pick up they'll set it up there.

I thought Sora wasn't supposed to be that great at shifting?
#19
so even if you order online they will set the bike up? Often there is a bit of gear adjustment required and would be good to get a quick check before heading off to discover the chain jumps off I'm 1st !
#20
I want one
#21
Kramer 2088, That's my understanding. My bike was delivered to me but set up was simple and trouble free. They also offer free first service within 3 months of purchase so a chance to iron out any niggles that emerge post delivery/ pick-up. I'll be taking advantage of that with my Triban 3 in next couple of weeks.

This is perfect for the more casual rider - I tried one and the chap who was talking me through the bike said it would be suitable for rides up to 70km without getting too uncomfortable. It was a nice position to hold the grips but the drop position would be great for when you were feeling more energetic :p

Hope this helps!

Sora group is fine for a casual rider and as long as you haven't tried anything further up the range.

Kinda annoyed I didn't post this myself yesterday. Heat.

I dont remember ever breaking a chain , and im 49 now

Hey, never had a road cycle so have some basic questions:

I can change tube/tire on my hybrid and MTB with some difficulty, but these thin tyres look impossible - how do people manage?

This bike doesn't have a lever saddle adjustment, is that normal for road bikes?

Does this have quick release wheels?

I've been quite lucky buying cycles second hand, without a great knowledge I've got myself a Marin mountain bike, brompton, and a Gary fisher hybrid all of which have never given me any trouble and were almost new condition. Used gumtree and ebay for those.

Looking at ebay now the branded road bikes which looks newish are upwards of 400, and these are the basic trek/nor co/0rbeos which cost 500 new in the sales at evans anyway - not a huge saving.

The decathlon bike looks like great value for a new cycle!

Try 25mm Marathon plus, at least an hour for the pair first time around :D

Its normal for road bikes to have quick release wheels but no need to move saddle once set up.
#33
For those talking about Click and Collect...

Click and Collect comes direct from the warehouse not another store. The bikes will be in the condition as if they were bought online and the store doesn't get the money for the bike (the online team do).

Give your local store a ring and they'll be able to reserve one... You'll get a much better setup in person and better help!

Yes.
Also fits Cyclops turbo trainers without having to change the spindle.
For the price, it's very hard to beat.

I bought a ford fiesta MkII Ghia for £50 once. It had £80 of tax on it! Mega bargain....and I could control where the sound went out of the four speakers with a little joystick.... I miss my yellow peril!
