used for 1 week or less I got 2 triban 3, 1 for myself and 1 for my girlfriend. My girlfriend just bought the triban 3 from the sales on Decathlon on the 5 of July with estimate delivery on 8 of july, and finally we get it on 13 of july. I have called many times to decathlon for the reason and have no cue for it. On the arrival of the bike, setting up the bike correctly and the front gear cannot go to the largest disc. This happened for both of the triban 3 I got and the new triban 3 for my girlfriend. I have try to bring my bike to halford to fix it, because I don't get any decathlon nearby. And they said this is the manufacturer problem, I have the change the whole gear set to fix the problem which is costly me 130, I didn"t do it because it is not worth for a bike with this price. Please advice how to fix this problem.

Response of the brand

Dear Sir,
I suspect that the bottom bracket is the incorrect length (hard to tell without seeing the bike).
I will ask our loyalty team to contact you and arrange for your bike to be repaired at no cost to yourself.
We will be in touch very shortly.

Triban 300


  (United Kingdom)

Bought this bike just under a year ago and in the past few months have had problems with the spokes in the rear wheel, they keep breaking. This has only recently became a problem but has happened several times. I have taken the bike to a bike shop to have them fixed but they continuously break. On my last ride 2 of the spokes on the rear wheel broke. What can I do about this frustrating problem? Apart from this when the bike was working I was very pleased with its performance.

Response of the brand

Dear Sir,
I'm sorry to read that you're having issues with your wheel.  Have you contacted your local Decathlon store or our customer loyalty team?  Please do so and we will send you a replacement wheel FOC.
They have improved the quality control over the last 8 months and the product has been improved.

good bike - annoying changes with 51 cm frame

carbon fork, light, handles well, looks good

small wheels and no toe clips. Clunky gears.

used for 2 to 8 weeks On the whole I'm loving my Triban 3 after moving up from a hybrid. However, there are some minor annoyances about the 51cm frame model. it comes without toeclips and these cannot be fitted to the supplied pedals (standard on all larger bikes) so looks like I'll soon ahve to pay for an upgrade. 650mm wheels rather than 700mm means fewer options on tubes, tyres, replacements.
Moslty the bike rides beautifully and I'm looking forward to my first long run this weekend but the gear change is clunky on the large cogs esp the largest. Gears have already been adjusted by local mechanic who says he's done the best he can- a shame because the low end gear change is silky smooth and effortless.
I understand compromises have to be made to achieve the great value but decent gear changing is a must on a road bike.

Response of the brand

Dear Sir,
The newer version of this discontinued bike comes with microshift rather than the previous version of Shimano Sora which is on this bike (and used by all major manufacturers).  We made this change because we found the microshift groupset to be more reliable and easier to adjust at this price point.  The current version of sora is totally different.
650 wheels are standard on all our bikes under 54.  This will change for future models.  Oddly enough, they will perform very well and are more suited to this frame size but parts can be an issue.  But we do stock these with inner-tubes for £2.99 and tyres for £17.99.  You'll find them on our site.
To be fair tough, at £200 this bike is an absolute steal with a lifetime frame warranty and carbon forks.
Thanks for your feedback and have a good weekend.
