Decahtlon Triban RC 500 review
Buy the Triban RC500 Disc Brake from Decathlon. Our 2022 Budget Bike of the Year testing was handled by regular BikeRadar contributors Simon Withers and Robin Wilmott – two highly experienced testers who have reviewed dozens of road and gravel bikes at the budget end of the market over the years.
Triban RC500 Best Budget Road Bike?
I think the new redesign of the bike is great and I think it really matches with all of the new cycling kit that they've just released as well. Now I think this is a great idea I Remember in my last reviews I was commenting on the fact that the design was a little old and I think it looked a bit toy like and I'm really happy with the brand-new design.

Okay, the last segment that we want to rate this bike on is on its comfort on the riding comfort of this bike. Now definitely this bike deserves a five out of five score. Why? Because the geometry itself actually allows your body to ride at a much more upright posture and coupled with a 28 mm tires, it's just just super comfortable to ride on
Advice on a reliable city bike
I love it but it's not for long trips. I don't think a painless 60km+ is happening unless you get a full on road or gravel sport bike. The Triban RC500 looks interesting but I fear it may be not good enough in any one area, instead of being capable of everything.
First Multi-Speed Road Bike! Help?
Not to mention how uncomfortable these bikes can be with super narrow "pizza cutter" tires at very high pressures. The cheapest new geared road bike I can recommend is the Triban RC500, if you can't stretch to that, at least get something from 2015-ish and up and save yourself the headache of trying to work on really old stuff.
