I've been telling people this is currently one of the best value road bikes out there. Nothing out there really compares for weigh and spec for that money. scores 9 out of 10 in reviews.

great spec for the money

It's a lot of bike for the money, roughly the equivalent of £1000 bikes from other manufacturers. The only thing it's missing is the latest gen 105, which is supposed to be very close to Ultegra performance.

Good price, although it's been thus price for some time now

Great bike but - 'End of season sale to make way for new Shimano 105 11s groupset version arriving in the spring of 2015.' will wait for the 5800

Great road bike had mine since January when the offer started fantastic value-hot

Anyone know of a decent single speed road bike for roughly £250-300? currently biking to work on a mountain bike but it's hard graft.

This will help the n00bs of which I'm one >

The gen 105 and Ultegra 6800 are groupsets as defined/explained in the link above and are both made by Shimano.

Whose stupid idea was it to put the rear brake under the chain stays I wonder? There's a good reason why 99% of road bikes have it up on the rear stays! It's like those daft U brakes that Shimano introduced years ago for MTB's.

It was probably a beancounter who said it would save 2p in manufacturing cost/time.
The U brake was marketing. That and Biopace.

Apparently, it's for aero. But as this frame's about as aero inspired as a house, it's pretty pointless and just makes servicing a pain and open to all the crud the UK roads can throw at it. Most manufacturers are going back to the usual place unless it's a time trial specific bike.

Shame the frame is Aluminium, I wish'd they made Steel bikes, much better.

Nice and rusty.

looks like they are about to bring out the Ultra 700 AF which looks identical apart from different paint and the new 5800 shimano 105. but its £750 quid.

Guys, I am looking to replace my seven yr old MTB. I am 69 yrs of age and ride my bike every day. My back is starting to express its discomfort at the stretch to the handlebars and my palms are starting to ache . I am looking to replace the MTB with an upright type ( the sort of bike I rode as a kid , Triumph or Raleigh). I would like swept back handlebars, sram gears sprung saddle mount. Budget £300.00 max. I looked at the Bwin 300 type but am not entirely sure it's for me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think the bike is a cracking deal but beware some of the service you get from decathelon is woeful. Makes Halfords look brilliant by comparison. No really !

Much more aero in a TT bike because then they can shape the frame around the brakes. However here it is probably not very effective. In fact it is incredibly awkward because dirt etc gets stuck in there and eats up your rims.

Nottingham and Southampton Decathlons have been superb to me! replaced loads of parts for free, after a car drove into me! can't fault em!

Looks like medium is back in stock

Got mine yesterday! Very pleased with it!

This is now at £499. I was going to get the Triban 500 SE for £299, but is this worth the extra £200 for first time road bike, commuting and some weekend rides?

Its only in extra small, good bike for £500. Other options are the Genesis Volare 10 from Wheelies or the Eastway R3. Or ST1.0 from wiggle.
