Oh and if you have Portify you can get 7% off potential 20% if you can persuade them that it’s an accessory
Worth asking people on ‘road cycling uk’ Facebook group if they’ve had it, I assume someone else has tried it
I've been going back to this for the past couple of weeks and debating buying it, I just can't tell if it's that good a deal or not. The lack of reviews on the Jareen is kind of putting me off but on the other hand I absolutely loved my Wilier 503X Pro mtb and trust the brand. The big thing for me at the moment is value for money and it feels like the gravel bike market is a lot less value for money than the road bike market? Having been cycling a fair bit in the past few months and being overtaken on every hill by everyone who's not on a mtb like me I feel I need to make the move across!
I had hoped to pick up a Triban RC 520 Gravel bike from Decathlon for £850. Cable-operated hydraulic brakes rather than full hydraulics a minus but 105 groupset a big plus. Waiting on them coming back in to stock before pulling the trigger. Thankfully I have my road bike in the meantime.. https://www.decathlon.co.uk/triban-rc520-gravel-id_8504030.html
Theres no definition of what a gravel bike is. But is commonly accepted that it has to have an easier gear for climbing off road. 34x32 to 50x11 is standard road bike gearing.
