Missing Gear

It’s perfect for training. When in a group, it would be ideal to have one smaller pinion

un peu lourd, mais pour le prix très honnête. Je l'adore. Utilisation pour aller au boulot 15 km aller puis retour. Portion de chemin sur gravier et les pneus tiennent bien.
Is it a good bike?
Jeremy (United Kingdom) Used for
Whether it's a good bike or not really depends on what you want out of it.

What I wanted:
1. I wanted a bike that was fun to ride and I would enjoy riding.
2. A bike that was comfortable (I'd recommend some cycling shorts though).
3. A fitness bike that would allow me to burn 500 calories a day.
4. I wanted something I could take to the beach, lock it up and not really worry about it getting stolen.

It's a really fun ride, it's pretty comfortable (lots of different hand positions due to the drop bars) and I'm cycling an hour to an hour and a half a day and enjoying every minute of it. The bike itself is inexpensive and the components are at the low end of 'racing components' so it's not exactly worth breaking my Kryptonite U Lock to have it away.

It meets all of the requirements I wanted in a bike - It's a good bike!

Frequent complaints about this bike:

1. The gear shifter is crap - Growing up we had the gear shifter on the down tubes. This was how it was. The position of the shifter on the Triban 100 feels natural to me. I guess if you come from a race orientated race bike with STI shifters you might find this a step back. If anyone has ridden a bike circular to 1990 this is how it was :) I actually enjoy the simplicity of it. It's a bit clunky but the gear changes are smooth.

2. It's not the best uphill - It's got 7 gears. The more gears you have the closer the gears are together so you can find the perfect resistance for cycling up the hill. With the two lowest gears you won't have a problem cycling up hills (unless you live int he Alps) but there is definitely a couple of gears which could be inserted between the two to make your life easier. Honestly, for the purposes of fitness I don't mind a bit of extra resistance. If your looking to compete with people going up hills on far superior road bikes (expensive group sets/gears) then this is not the bike for you. If you are happy to motor up the hill and burn a few calories along the way it does the job.

A bit more on this... I looked at choosing a different bike due to this. However, without waffling on you don't really get anything that much better until you probably choose the 105 groupset (11 speed). Everything in between is probably marginally better (for each price jump) and you might get an extra chain ring or two to make it even better but it's all tech that you would outgrow at some stage anyway.

For this reason I went with the Triban and if I'm still cycling in a year I'll probably upgrade it to whatever race bike has the 105 groupset at the time.

Anyone thinking of getting this for fitness and who do not live in the Alps it's a good buy!

Cheap, but flawed.
Barry (United Kingdom) Used for
This bike is cheap and it's cheap for a reason; however if you need a cheap bike then this is perfect.
The good: the price, £250 for a road bike cannot be faulted.
The bad: the gears, the handlebar selector is just a nightmare, it just unsettles the whole bike when you have to let go of the bar to change gear. The ratios are ok, for a gentle flat ride but any kind of hill and you realise that there is just a single ratio available.
More bad; the position took a lot of "fettling" to find some comfort.
Conclusion; I need a cheap bike to use whilst I was away from home for a few months, £250 was a good deal and I racked up over 1000km in 3 months; so definitely got good value. Would I buy again, no; spend the extra £120 and get the Triban RC120 instead, well worth it.
Fun commuter
Matt (United Kingdom) Used for
Had this bike for 2 weeks now, and racked up 250km+ commuting to work through Central London.

Really happy with this bike, its weight, how it handles and the build quality. Would recommend as a cheap, entry level road bike -suits me as a fast commuter bike, but also now looking to do longer touring rides on it. I'm 6ft 2 and 105kg, and an XL is very comfortable. Seat can be a little tough after 90 minutes, but some cycling shorts make you forget that.
Excellent value (but get Triban 500 instead)
Carl (United Kingdom) Used for
Cannot better this for £249. By the way the recent review by Neil is confusing this bike with his previous Triban which was, I guess, the better equipped (gears, carbon fork etc) Triban 3 which was £249 a few years ago when I bought it. This is now available as the similar but light weight Triban 500 all for a bargain £349. Try and get a light weight carbon front fork bike elsewhere for that cash, rival store aka big ‘H’ would choke on the price lol.
