Voted hot, seems pretty good.

Carbon fork, Shimano, etc

I don't know much about bikes, but been interested recently and got myself a Triban 500 in Decathlon which seems very well reviewed, been out and about on it the last few days, been a joy to ride about. I haven't had a decent bike for twenty years, except my Brompton, they really have improved a lot in smoothness and lightness. I paid £449 for mine. It too has the carbon fork and Shimano parts.

Heat.

Don't think there is any beating this for under £400. Hot from me

I have the 2012 version. Great bike for the money and very upgradable

Good deal that

How does this compare to the renown Triban 3 i wonder, Price wise theyre about the same. I hear a lot of praise for the Triban 3 but havent heard anything said about this bike.

Well the Triban 3 which is so well thought of is the red one, which is out of production now. You can't get it online and you're lucky to find it in the size you want at your local decathlon but for £250 currently it's a better deal assuming you're OK with thumb button shifters rather than Sora - just good luck finding one.

Other than that, there's the Triban 3 White with Microshift shifters and aluminium Fork for £299; Triban 500SE which does have a carbon fork but only microshift shifters; the Triban 5 which has Sora shifters and carbon fork but looks like it's limited availability like the red Triban 3; and finally the Triban 500 with carbon fork and Sora shifters for £450, but according to their site it's also limited stock currently!

In short, this bike compares well to the Tribans you have any chance of finding at the moment I'd say If you prefer Shimano over Microshift, I'd say go for this, otherwise the 500SE is worth considering - if you can find it!

Great starter bike at a bargain price. Will hold quite a bit of value too if you decide that lycra ain't your thing.

Sorry but the Triban 500 SE has a carbon fork and is only £379.99 and is a lovely bike.

Good deal, had sora for 10 years and no probs apart from a couple of gears that it doesnt like ! hot !

great bike. nice smooth welded frame. stick some Zonda wheels and decent tyres on it and you will keep up with much more expensive machinery. I know two people with these and they have got plenty of KOMs on Strava on them!

that has 8 speed claris (ridiculous name!) whereas this has 9 speed sora which is basically a 9 speed version of 4600 tiagra.

i think the felt wins for me

For someone who wants to see if they get the bug or not I'd say the Felt, simply as it will have a higher resale value or should be easier to sell on if they decide they don't want to keep riding or want to upgrade.

If I bought this bike would there be an instrument to assist pulling the seat out from between my ass cheeks? :-)
Nice deal.

Following 20+ years with my trusty GT MTB i'm looking at getting a road bike and this seems well received. People in the know...how does it compare to Saracen Tenet 1 2014 Road Bike available for a similar price?

i think that says a lot more about your ass cheeks than the saddle!

i'd go for the felt all day long, better make, better gears, better bike.

my first bike was this. excellent bike. for under £400 you can't go wrong. you will not loose much on resale either

What about compared to decathlon.co.uk/tri…tml - I got this with a SORA crank but think they are now onto another cheaper version.

this is also 8 speed and has microshift shifters not shimano, i have never used microshift stuff so don't know how it compares in term of quality.

it also depends on how much value you put in after sales care, decathlon, being a physical store, would set the bike up for you and if you have any issues (gears that need indexing etc) then you can pop back and let them do it if you aren't comfortable doing it yourself. With wiggle it gets sent in the post, there is some assembly required and any issues mean posting it back again.

Hmm, not bad entry level bike, but I struggle to see how they sell it at the rrp normally... Concerns are the compact chainset, but ok for entry level I guess and the soft as tinfoil rims, which will give way at the spoke ends (avoided the proper term to avoid the usual sniggers) as soon as they can... apart from that, should provide cheap entry level fun...

So I'd nearly made my choice but now there's this Felt bike, the Vitus Razor, the Triban 500, the Triban 500SE and the Triban Fit 500! As a complete novice do I go for the cheapest, the lightest, the best make or the Tiagra?

I need light as I have to carry mine over a railway bridge, which is the lightest of those you mention?

Im still quite tempted by this bicycle, I have some peice of **** MTB from Halfords that has done my bidding for a while but I havent been out on it for a while.

Ive always wanted a road bike for a better commute but Im not sure if id use if enough to justify parting with the cash

They all weigh about the same between 9.5 and 11kg. The Vitus is the lightest I think.

Thanks OP.
