Topic - Decathlon Bikes - is one worth the extra and alternatives?

SuperstarDJ - on 27 Mar 2013
This question seems to come up fairly often but I'll ask it again in case times have changed...

I've not owned a bike since I was a kid but this year is the year I'm finally going to get one.

The general feedback on here and elsewhere is that Decathlon is a good place to get that 'starter' bike from.

Is it worth spending the extra 100 on the Triban 5 over the Triban 3?

Triban 5

Are there any alternatives that I should be considering in the 300 to 400 range

What other bits and pieces should I be picking up? Puncture repair kit, helmet, Team Sky Jersey?

Thanks in advance...

David
