Decathlon White Triban 5 51cm road bike - £299.99

Found 5th Nov 2014
Great price for an aluminium carbon mixed frame with a Shimano Sora groupset.

51cm only though and the 650 wheels may not be to everyone's liking.

I'm about 5f6 /5ft7. Would this suit me?

Possibly. If you are near a decathlon you could try one of the current range to see if fits before ordering this older one.

I would say depends on your inside leg, Shortish leg yes. I am 5'6 and found the next size up too stetched out.

It is easier to make a small bike fit than one which is just too big to start with.

650b awful

What's the beef with 650b?

Beats me. Seems the appropriate size wheel for a 51cm bike. Less likely to overlap on your toes.

The only issue with 650s is the range (and price) of replacement tyres and tubes. There's a lot more choice with 700s. However, why have the wrong wheelset to start with? Good of B'twin to design the bike properly, I reckon - right size wheels, crank arms etc. for the frame.

Great bike for the money my son has one of these, you definitely need 700 wheels though. frame about right size for your height

Bought one from the Stockport branch a couple of days ago. Brilliant bike for the price and it actually had 2013 Sora on it which is much better i.e. proper dual control levers rather than the thumb shifters. Also had a black 2013 Sora chainset on so it wasn't just the gears that had been upgraded. Looks really smart and I don't think you'll find another bike anywhere near these specs for the money. The 650c wheels aren't really an issue for me, its for my son and makes it better proportioned for the frame size, which I'm sure will give him a bit more confidence in riding his first road bike.

I guess I'll have to go to Stockport and try one on. What height is your son?

About 5ft 2. I think I got the last one from Stockport. You can check stock on their website. When I looked they were in stock at all my local(ish) branches

They have 6 in Stockport. Too small for me. Tried the 54 Triban 500 and that was OK. I'll wait for a deal to pop up for a 54 bike instead.
