    Shame that it has disc brakes......they have no place on a road bike.

    I've got 2 of the decathlon road bikes - the RC520 disc, which is pretty much like this but with a Shimano 105 groupset and disc brakes - and the 900AF, which is the aluminium road bike with rim brakes, much lighter but about the same price.
    The RC520/120 is heavier, has a more comfortable endurance riding position, and the frame is good for graveling as well (I bought a 2nd set of wheels and added some 38mm gravel tyres) and is also much safer to use as a winter bike or in the wet. The 900AF however is much lighter, faster, more aggressive positioning and the rim brakes (105s) are actually much, much better than the disc brakes in the dry summer months. The 120/520 disc brakes aren't that good, tbh. The rim brakes are also pretty good in the wet as well tbh (they are the 105 brakes, not Microshift).
    The 120/520 is a better all-rounder but slower on tarmac (about 1-2 mph difference, I cycle typically around 16-17mph). Choose Rim brakes if you're using it for road only in decent weather or if you want to save £100, choose disc if you intend to use it in rubbish weather and also if you intend to use it off tarmac. Note also if you choose RIM brakes, you will eventually need to replace the wheels after a few thousand miles - you won't need to do this with disc brakes, you just replace the discs. Rim brakes are also a lot easier to maintain.

    Also the Microshift gearing on the bikes is a bit rubbish - the RC520 had a rear microshift cassette that lasted less than 500 miles but luckily it could be changed for Shimano. So if you can afford the more expensive 500 or 520 with Shimano components, it's definitely worth it.
    Olive other thing to look out for - the 28mm tyres that come with this bike are a NIGHTMARE to get off the rims. Took me over an hour the first time in a workshop, normally would take me a minute or less. Worth considering swapping tyres or at least practice taking them off. I switched mine for some 38mm tyres so it could be used as a gravel bike, then bought a 2nd pair of wheels off FB marketplace and put some 25mm tyres on for road use.

    Overall though these bikes really are excellent and a great value for money. Despite some small flaws they're really excellent bikes and astonishing value, especially the RIM model at £349. (edited)

    Don't forget the Carrera Virtuoso as an option, much higher quality Claris drivetrain and stronger frame and forks, a smidgen heavier perhaps but overall superior to this bike for less money. Tektro disc brakes instead of Promax too. One big issue is the forks on the Virtuoso are aluminium so possibly not as comfortable compared to the Decathlon carbon fibre forks but that may be bonded CF blades on a aluminium steerer which are typically more prone to fail although easier to install because of the aluminium steerer and not quite as comfortable or safe typically as full carbon fibre forks. Virtuoso is a huge seller and often out of stock though so that could be an issue. I think the Virtuoso is a bit more of an everyday bike, commuter etc, stronger components and more abuse-able.

    This is a lot of bike for this price, I got it 2 years ago for £500 and it's done over 3000 miles with no real problems. Regularly reviewed as one of the best budget road bikes you can get

    I have the older 520 flat bar, although I'm glad mine has Shimano Sora instead of microshift. My bike came with a microshift cassette, and after swapping it with a Shimano HG50 cassette shifting was transformed!

    Check out the chainreactioncycles.com/bra…484

    This bike is a bargain at £262 if you want a cheap road bike. Great as a commuter, winter bike. You won't win any races but it's cheap to buy and won't break the bank to maintain.
