    Some twartus has stolen my Triban 3.
    I want something cheap and ideally no worse specced than the Triban to replace it, and this has piqued my interest.

    Anyone got one? How is it to ride?

    Spec is ally frame, Sora groupset, carbon fork, Alex rims. Lack of geometry information online is concerning… 😯

    Or recommendations around or below the £500 mark? Tried the trek 1.1, carrera vanquish and boardman sport. All okay but not terribly good. Lacking the carbon fork the triban had too which is a bit of a psychological barrier.

    I’ve got a B’Twin Triban 5a which is excellent for £429.

    Thanks, but not in stock at my local store (lakeside) and can’t find it anywhere else?

    Didn’t realise they were so hard to come by just now. Picked mine up around 6 weeks ago and Glasgow and online had loads in all sizes. The other option I was considering was a Cannondale Caad 8 Sora from Pauls Cycles for £599
