    • Absolutely brilliant

      This is an amazing bike. I am quite new to the world of road bikes ,as i was riding a mountain bike on the road for a few years, but since i have i would never turn back. This bike is fast, sturdy and probably the best £300 you could spend (for me it was anyway). The bikes aesthetics makes it look a lot more than £300. The gears and brakes are good. Overall i think this bike is the best £300 anyone could spend if they are into cycling.

      Well, bought this bike three months ago and been waiting to see how it developed to write a review.
      This is a brilliant bike!(for the price you pay). Sure a lighter frame and better components and wheels, and sturdy hubs could be added.. but then you will pay double wouldn't you?.
      It feels light and comfortable in long rides. The microshift....not the smother, but does the job and will be replaced once gives up. And this is the beauty of this bike.....their components can be upgraded at taste although to be fair no need for it.
      My only complaint...like many others, have been having problems with back wheel. Initially, just after 300km, have to replace bearings; then spokes got loose; and now, a highly annoying "clunk" noise in the hub that makes me believe the axil is damaged. A same really, but not the end of the world.
      Normally, within this price range, you do get what you pay for...with the Triban 500se you don't, you do get far far more.
      As said, back hub is dreadfull but, might just be mine!!!!
    • Cool bicycle

      I am not an expert and actually new to cycling but I really like this bike. I have been cycling almost a year and haven't had any problem.. I recently changed the wheels from 23 mm to 25 mm apparently its more comfortable that way..I am a little bit disappointed with the bike repair service as it is not possible to book a slot in advance.. I didn't want to leave my bike at the store overnight so I missed the 3 months free maintenance.. however the people there are helpful. if you need advice and quick fixes they help you..
      lightweight, style, affordable

      I have had this bike for a reasonable time now (6 months) and can confidently say this was the best £300 I have ever spent. The bike is up there with the best that I have ridden: smooth, comfortable, fast and very agile (I have been on a number of bikes as I am a keen triathlete from Cannondales to Meridas and lower price lemons as well!). The value is phenomenal - I have had no reliability problems whatsoever and I am very impressed with the gears, the frame, the solid wheels and the general handling of the bike. The Microshift system is just as good as Shimano: it is effortless and smooth so cast aside any snobbery you may have! I use it generally as a reliable commuter but I have used it in a Duathlon at Rockingham speedway. For a 19km course I clocked 35 minutes which is simply a respectable result - the bike can be used for sportives and sprint triathlons in my view and if you were to upgrade both the wheels and the tyres you would have a very swift machine indeed. The only thing I have changed on the bike is to install a pair of Michelin Lithion 2 tyres which have worked nicely with the bike. So if you are looking for a very solid, comfortable and reliable commuting/training bike then go ahead and buy it you will not regret it. All of the positive reviews here are pretty much spot on.
