Couldn't help but share this as it was UKC which pointed me in the direction of the Triban 5 which I had never heard of before!

Been looking at buying my first road bike for a while now and decided on the BTwin Triban 3 or 5 as budget limited. Was going to buy new and had been to Decathalon shop to check size (60cm) etc..
Anyway saw this on ebay yesterday and had a bid, got it for 370 in the end.

Its a 12 month old Triban 5 (which was apparently only used for 3 months) with a few upgrades which are: Shimano Ultegra carbon pedals, carbon stem, full mudguards, Cateye computer, Shimano 105 derailleurs & Hutchinson equinox tyres.

In reply to Andy Mountains: Nice, what make/model are the mudguards ?

In reply to Andy Mountains:

Sweet. Looks nice, a bargain and the fact it allows mudguards is a bonus, getting them with it even better.

Cheers

Don't know. Pick it up tomorrow.

In reply to Toby_W:

That's exactly why I was asking. I have the same bike and finding mudguards to fit was difficult. The ones in the picture look like a better fit than the ones I got, hence the question :-)

In reply to Davvers: My thought on the mudguards was.. nice enough to be expensive ones ~ >30.

Good luck with getting some.

Awesome - don't make the mistake of getting a Garmin and signing up to Strava like I did last week!

Why?

Long story - but check out the Strava thread - it's addictive and you'll never be off the bike!

So, what make/model are the mudguards then, and what is your opinion on them?

I got myself Triban 3 few days ago, and would need to get the guards now too. Considering Crud Road Racers 2 or SKS Bluemels - are yours one of those?
