Pro's for me were
Price
Attachments
Gear Set (I didnt want high maint/replacement cost)
Disk Brakes
Availability (Canada is extremely short on Bikes)
Room to upgrade to Wider Tires

Some Minor Cons
Tubeless tires/Wheel Set (This is brought up a lot and will be looking at changing the tire Set out after this riding year to more friendly tires for my person (Wider Set))
Easy to nick and scratch the paint
Pedals That come with it are plastic and can be broken easily


Will update more later

To specify I sue this bike to commute with and have put a rack on the back with the Decathlon 15 L bags. for me to work and back in about 50Kms mainly paved roads with some gravel (about 2 Km worth)

Really good for endurance riding.
Great value for the spec.
Excellent Value
Ching-yen (Canada) Used for 3 to 6 months
I bought this bike for my daughter to ride and it is an excellent bike particularly for the price. When I was looking at bikes in this range, competitor entry level disc-bikes were a more expensive, and didn't always have a Shimano groupset which I was looking for. I was expecting to need to check-over the assembly as Decathlon is not a bike specialist store, so was pleasantly surprised by how well it was put together. What I also like is that this same frame is used for their gravel bike so I know that it is a tough frame. Parts for this bike are easy and cheap to get at the store, so I've actually put together a 2nd gravel wheelset for off-road riding. One thing to note - this bike is disc brake QR and most disc brake bikes are thru-axle. It's only an issue if you have other wheelsets and want to swap it onto this bike. We're really happy with this purchase.

Hello Ching-yen,


Thank you for much for taking the time to leave a review on the Triban RC 500.


This bike is very great, and rest assured that our technicians are perfectly trained and know a lot about our products and bike in general. You can trust our teams at Décathlon if you ever need something with your bike.


Don't forget you have a free tune-up within the year of the purchase of the product. It's always a good idea before the season to check everything to be sure it's safe. You can book appointments online directly on our website.


Thanks again, and have a great day! 😊

Avoid this Bike
Javier (United Kingdom) Used for 7 to 12 months
When I bought this bike, I thought It was the best option in the market for this money. Everything looked nice, and I was happy until I had a puncture and my problems with the tubeless-ready wheels started.

I realised that repair a puncture wasn't easy at all comparing with any of my previous bikes. As you can read in other comments, the tubeless-ready wheels are not the easiest for an inner tube replacement.

After three months of using the bike, one of the spokes of the rear wheel brake and I replaced it in a very well known workshop. In the beginning, I thought it was normal and I continued using the bike as usual. Some days later, another 2 spokes broke, I had to bring the bike back to the workshop, so I decided to contact Decathlon to know if everything was fine with the wheels.

Decathlon confirmed a manufacturing problem with the wheels and they offered me a wheel replacement for free. After more than 6 months of waiting for a new wheelset replacement and being in contact with Decathlon many times, I have always received the same answer from them. We will contact me once they have stock of the wheels. I am still waiting.....

From my point of view, if you add the price of a new set of wheels to the cost of the bike (approx. 850-900£), I think you can find better options in the market. So I wouldn't recommend this bike to anyone looking for a new bike to start cycling or commuting.

My Buddy and I bought two Triban 520 to take on a touring holiday of the Algarve. One of the reasons we bought from Decathlon was there stores around Europe in particular Portugal. We did drop into one store to have a min service on one of the bikes the gears were not quite right we had to wait an hour and the job done and no charge as we were under warranty. Fantastic holiday no real issues and we now have two winter bikes for the winter. I can recommend this bike.
