Refreshed 2nd Jun (Posted 2nd Jun)
Seems like a pretty good road bike, quite light and Tiagra set. Now down to 299gbp, even cheaper than the Claris version 1.0.

Cheaper than the usual BTWIN/TRIBAN recommended bikes.

Thoughts?

A race-ready road machine that gives you true all-round performance.The Calibre Rivelin 2.0 Road Bike boasts an alloy frame, carbon fork and a full Shimano Tiagra groupset - everything you need to excel in your first sportive or road race.

Its double-butted 6061 alloy frame uses compact geometry that combines long-distance comfort with nippy handling, while the aluminium tubing is contoured for low weight and high stiffness.

Slim seat stays offer controlled vertical compliance to dampen bumps and vibrations in the road. A carbon fibre fork cuts weight further and soaks up road buzz for added comfort. A tapered steerer adds extra front-end stiffness for razor-sharp control around high-speed corners.

Shimano's Tiagra components feature pro-level technology developed and tested at the highest levels of international competition. Between the 10-speed cassette and compact 50/34T double chainset, you have a range of gears wide enough to get up any hill.

The Shimano R500 wheelset boasts a semi-aero rim profile that cuts through the air for great speed. Lightweight aluminium construction makes for speedy acceleration and easier climbing, and Shimano hubs roll on smooth, easy to maintain cup-and-cone bearings. The grippy Schwalbe Lugano tyres deliver all-weather performance.

The cockpit, stem, handlebar and headset all come from FSA's performance range. FSA provide the seatpost as well, with a micro-adjust saddle clamp for easy tweaks to the fit of the bike. Finishing things off is a sport saddle from the Italian experts at Selle Royal.

That's some fine kit on the with the Tiagra. Not sure about the frame tho it comes in all under 10 kilo so can't fault it. Robust wheelset, what would anyone expect at this price? Looks like a great deal first proper road bike.

Ridiculously cheap. Has everything mamils want ( carbon forks, mid range groupset, under 10kg!!!!). If you really need a racing bike ( you probably don't) this is a great deal.
Comes up last one on most sizes. But cannot deliver and no click and collect?
Cracking deal - but virtually nothing in stock.

Best chances seem to be on the 48 or 52. There's a 48 in Taunton.
Great deal but it's old tiagra but all absolutely fine and leagues ahead of btwin clunky microshift stuff just don't expect to get up many hills with that 11-25 cassette. Still it's cheap enough to buy a 11-28 (max size poss) with the short cage derailleur

I was looking at some youtube videos last night of some new Shimano mountain bike cassettes with 51 and, IIRC, 52 cogs on 1 x 11 or 1 x 12 gears. Just the one smallish chainwheel at the front. I need some of those on my hybrid for the Welsh hills of my commute. Probably won't be coming for a few years to ordinary bikes.

Boris397 A 34x 25 should get you up a mountain, if not you need more miles in or pounds off.
Nice bike, if you can actually find one in stock
Tiagra chainset and brakes, these are more often than not left out on many well known brands... Bargain.. as has been said the frame maybe average but I doubt it's any worse than a Triban which seems to have what sounds like scaffold poles when you flick it.

Bought one of these at this price back in Feb and it is a cracking buy. I have recently changed to a 12-28 cassette as I live at the top of a big hill. Only cost me £17 from wiggle.
Stonking deal if you can get the right size.

I would say the groupset is worth circa £300 on its own.

Bit of an exaggeration but the wheels and groupset together are. You can pick up 105 for 300
I can't figure out the sizes! According the Calibre website (calibrebicycles.com/bik…-0/) they come in Small, Medium and Large frame but on GoOutdoors it has the numbers, I think I need a small according to Calibre as I'm about 5' 8, so what size would I need?

Good luck gettiing up Hardknott Pass on 34x25. I couldn't and do thousands of miles a year! Next attempt will involve a bigger cassette.
There's a 48cm at Taunton Go Outdoors, that is the only one available close to me in the South West. Also may be a good donor bike if you are looking to buy a carbon fibre or titanium frame in which case the 48cm size may not be such an issue.
I'm just over 6ft what size would be best for me?
Posted before so you'll struggle to find stock. I got one back in Feb came out at £280 with cash back.

It's ok- the Tiagra is old tiagra so nothing too flash but nice enough.

I'd say 58-60 so not available in this bike.
Very good starter bike, gave it some heat. Hope it gets some people into the sport.

How is it holding up? Didn’t get it this time around but maybe if it comes in stock again. Assume you’d get t again for that price

You must be riding small mountains on fresh legs. Try something like the etape on that.

zero point for 99.5% of people grinding too high a gear - just buy a wider cassette. If you race then using too small a gear can be used as a strength training technique.

I thought the picture shows the newer 4700 chainset but that could be an error.
But does it include pedals?

Ive seen in store in a different bike that the chainset is the newer tiagra version but the shifters are the older version. Not sure about the derailleurs either which for me would be the most important thing.

Shimano already do 1x10 and 1x11 down to Deore/SLX level so not that pricey and go to 42/46 teeth respectively.

I use a Shimano 1x11 XT set-up with a Sunrace 11-50 cassette. Sunrace kit is just as good as the Shimano of a similar price bracket and the gear ratios are better spaced (Shimano have a huge jump at the top two).

Sunrace do the wide range cassettes in 9-10-11 speed so you could probably find something that fits.

Its heavier than advertised haven't used it yet as its going to be a winter hack. Seems ok for the money.
Looks decent. No good for the Tour De France but OK for bumbling around the mad, flat plains of Birmingham.
Wow great price

You'll never the range of gears needed with a 1x System vs a double or triple. You'll spin out on a road bike with a 1x and wont be able to get over 20mph.

To be fair some cars struggle with that..

Disagree my friend, in Sussex an 11/28 is much better suited on the rear for starters. Guessing your a newer rider in London or super fit. Lol
Unable to deliver to my location & no stores on the island I live on. Great service by Go Outdoors there
there is the same looking bicycle for £1

Keep in mind that the bike comes with Schwalbe Lugano tyres, and the only place where they belong is trash. To quote a rolling resistance test:

bicyclerollingresistance.com/roa…015
"Based on the rolling resistance test results, I just can't recommend the Schwalbe Lugano to anyone. These tires will seriously slow you down; some mountain bike tires even have a much lower rolling resistance."


The first thing you need to do is replace them with literally anything else.
