Wanted a cheapish commute bike, noticed this and read the reviews online and it was a pretty easy buy decision.
All the components are of a good standard, no plastic fantastics here. Came put together properly, the only thing that I had to tighten was the seat pole, completely acceptable but I like it pretty tight. The seat isn't uncomfortable, which is the normal sin for a reasonably priced bike. It came with peddles which I wasn't expecting and I really like the riding position.
I ride on a bike trail which is in such great condition that you get chain slap even where you avoid all the pot holes and am pretty heavy in the seat, so its a testament to the extra width and quality of the tires. For ridability(I know it's not a word) I don't get as tired or as sore riding this bike than any other bike I have owned.
The staff in the store are amazing and will let you test bike and when you buy set it up for you, like a bike shop not a department store.
since I bought this bike I have been continously visiting the decathlon store. First there was some issue with disc brakes I was ok with it and got it resolved. Then I had problems with derailleur got that also resolved.
Now I am facing a annoying noise coming out of bottom bracket.
Also there is some permanent issue with disc brakes that is when they start rubbing just after slight wetness
Its losing its paint on fork because of friction with the cable.
Also facing some other issues like rubbing of disc brakes in wet conditions.
I bought it 2 weeks ago, and have already clocked 400km in it. This being my first road bike, I am quite happy with the purchase. Compared to my previous 6 gear BTwin Riverside, this Triban just flies. I was thinking of going for RC520, but then RC500 with Sora is just missing 2 extra sprockets which to me is not at all a concern. Also the disc brakes on this work just fine, so far no issues at all. And last but not the least, the matt blue colour is so much nicer. A similar specced bicycle from other brand is at least 14k more expensive.
I do plan to go for a bike fit soon to get this bike fitted for my body dimensions, hopefully that would be helpful on longer rides.
Looks great, rides fast and light weight
This is my first road bike, which I also use with 35mm Gravel tyres for off-road use, as well as for getting a bit more compliance on rough Indian roads. I am a cyclist who loves to explore, not race. For that purpose, this can be a very nice bike. It's got almost enough braking power, amazing ergonomics, excellent agility, and it just feels so damn good to ride. A few things to note though, I suggest replacing the stock pedals after 500-1000 kms, they are the only things that have malfunctioned on the bike so far. The fork does a good job of absorbing energy-draining road vibrations. I did a 300 km brevet on this thing, and was still able to join office the next day. It's that comfortable, if you've done your maths and adjusted it to fit to your body specifications.
Plus there's a ton of room for upgradeable parts. The rear wheel can take 11 cassettes, so you can upgrade to a 22 speed drivetrain if you wish. I'm thinking of replacing stock brakes with a tektro hy/rd brakes, since that's the only way this bike can have hydraulic brakes.
There are enough mounting points for touring accessories and fenders, but I've always craved for one or two more bottle cage mounts on 100 Km+ rides.
To sum the jagged pieces of info above, if you want a bike that rides amazing straight Outta the box, has room for upgradeability, is versatile, and looks mouth watering, go for it.
excellent products & support
Got it on 17th July 2020, it is great bike!
