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.
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!
The Triban allows me to do all of the
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.
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.
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.
If you're expecting an upgrade on technology and performance of past Tribans, this isn't the right option for you. I have been happy with the Triban I bought for £249.00 around 5 years ago, until it gave up the ghost last week.
I purchased this bike expecting it to at least be as good, but it's really not. The gear range is barely good enough for a leisurely ride (at both ends of the scale), and the shifter being on the bars is like stepping back in time. Reviews say it 'takes getting used to', but with the brakes being so far away from the shifter I can't help thinking it was made by someone who has never ridden before - it's completely counter-intuitive and unnatural.
Hello. Thank you for sharing your review of the Triban 100. I am unable to see which bike you bought 5 years ago but it sounds like the spec may be more similar to the current RC120. The current Triban 100 is more of an entry level leisure road bike than previous models which as you know are suitable for both commuting and sportive level. The price difference is linked to the improvements made to the specs of the bike but also the exchange rate which is not the same as 5 years ago unfortunately. I hope that helps!

Not the greatest bike in the world. But for £250, including lights and bell, great value for money.
Seems sturdy enough for a larger than average rider - I'm 110 kilos. And I really like the hybrid tyres. I also like the 'Mega Range' gear. I've done a couple of hundred kilometres in past 3 weeks since I bought it and it rides well.
I could write a long list of omissions or things where the manufacturer might have upped the specification. But that would be missing the point given the price.
Initially I liked it. The initial assembling was very easy. Everything that was assembled was tight. All were ok untill 3rd week of use. The tube in the front tyre got punctured on 3rd week. Was using in a normal bike roads.
Bought this bike from my local shop yesterday, rode it around 20 miles so far and I must say I absolutely love my new bike. Surprisingly, it offers good value for money came with everything I need pair of lights bell etc. Also, this could be the most affordable cyclocross bike one could find definitely worth its price!
Good quality bike
Worth the money
