Looks OK for the money. Not sure what it rides like but, hey, at this level a bike is a bike. Good to have 24 gears for the "recreational" cyclists amongst us, although not familiar with a 2300 set that will do this.
It looks very good value. The site itself is strange, in that, it provides a good range of photos of the bike but does not give enough detail on the spec. Odd.
Decathlon bikes generally are good value for money but they have always struggled to get much heat on here - so have some.
As far as the reviews I've read, it's really a good bike and now they deliver from their Surrey branch for a postage of £5.99...
Hi. Ive just bought the 54cm size Triban 3 for my son who is just taking up road biking. I have looked around for a budget road bike for him but you cannot beat the Triban 3 for value. I have ridden it and it rides really nice putting bikes twice its price to shame. Wots more the frame is made in Italy and the quality of the welds etc are great and the whole bike weighs under 10kg thanks to the carbon fork, the paintwork and finish is spot on too. The Shimano 2300 is the enrty level group set but seems to work well with smooth gear changes, although the down shift button on the levers may not suit all. With the bike you also got free lights and the offer of a pump, lock, water bottle and cage for a fiver.
I bought the bike from the Nottingham Decathlon where the staff were very helpful.
I bought this bike a month ago as i was getting a little tired of newbee bike commuters passing me on their £1000+ road bikes, as I have a fairly expensive do it all mtb. I must say for my first road bike it's very good value for the money. I also am able to hold my own against other cyclists on much more expensive bikes. Not that I would condone such behavier.
Bought myself one of these yesterday to give my boardman mtb a rest on the roads. Its a cracker.
Very interested in this bike as it is time for a new one for me...

Does anyone know if mudguards can be fitted to the bike, such as the Crud Road Racer 2?

Nice bikes great price - Many Decathlon staff vote with their feet on these bikes. Any slim blades that go through the calipers will be a tight fit. At the front, get a wide downtube clip on type. At the back a seatpost mounted one or a half guard (cut the front half off) so it doesn't have to go through the caliper. I have a lightweight rack lined out so it doubles as a crud stopper. This leaves room (just) if you want to change the 23 for 25 tyres
the btwin triban 3 has just had a fantastic review in this months cycling active magazine infact it won against 3 other more expensive bikes ,the guy who did review ended up buying one and will be giving us an update in the future,its kind of bike that could be easly upgraded if you ever neded or wanted to but its fine the way it is.
