/ My first road bike is bought! (Pic included)
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.

Sweet. Looks nice, a bargain and the fact it allows mudguards is a bonus, getting them with it even better.
Don't know. Pick it up tomorrow.
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 :-)
ahh , ok
Good luck with getting some.
I will let you know when I pick it up tomorrow.
Awesome - don't make the mistake of getting a Garmin and signing up to Strava like I did last week!
Long story - but check out the Strava thread - it's addictive and you'll never be off the bike!
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?
ignore Enty and get on strava, there are worse things to be addicted to
