An excellent solid entry level road bike for people new to road cycling and don't want to spend too much as they are just trying it out. Better than the Decathlon TRIBAN 500 SE as a starter bike in my opinion.

That Trek 1.2 for 25 more is far better.
The triple chainset in the 250 Triban is suited to beginners in hilly areas.
What does the extra £75 over the decathlon Triban 500 SE get you? Decathlon offer a 12 weeks free service,
The triban has a record of dodgy frames and is 1kg heavier.
Good winter bike.
Shame about available frame sizes.

Shimano shifters insead of micro shift, about 1kg lighter (probably due to slightly better wheels)

it is just a bit better really. both will probaby peform pretty much the same though

Better stay away from Trek then! outsideonline.com/197…kes
Yup, I do.
Vitus looks much better than the Triban 500SE and Triban 500 which is £25 dearer but if you have a local Decathlon store that can offer support to you might be worth considering but if you are ordering online and responsible for your own maintenance and servicing then the Vitus seems a no brainer. Can't say I like the red colour though. Looks much nicer in black.
