Unbeatable value road bike

Great road bike, can't get 105 at a better price. Not complete 105, but 105 where it counts on the shifters. External cable routing on the hybrid brakes, but I don't notice it after the first ride, and the hydraulic calipers help with brake feel. Upgraded to 32mm tires and still have clearance. Relaxed geometry, I did replace saddle with my personal preference. Have done over 300 miles on it. Do wish the wheels/tires were a bit better stock but you can upgrade to what you want. I also use the little bell that comes with it more than I would think.

Can't recommend highly enough

I did a lot of research prior to putting my money down on this. The bike has been nothing but superb. It is not the lightest of machines, but is comfortable, solid, stylish and incredibly practical. I completed a 650km trek with panniers (don't buy the Decathlon rack - it comes loose!) and the bike was superb. The cable/hydraulic brakes are excellent and to get 105 on a bike of this price is simply unheard of. I may change the saddle but otherwise have to hand it to Decathlon in getting such a high quality bike out for such a bargain price. My days are still spent longing for my next ride...

Great bike with great value!

Price point is bang for the buck for its parts. The bike's relaxed geometry is great for me. I really love biking with this new steed.

Bang for your buck

Really well specced for the price. A great first bike with room for future upgrades, especially if you plan to go on gravel roads.

Worth the wait!

Awesome specs, great ride. Been using it for 6 weeks only and i have already racked up a lot of kms. Tried using it on trail several times and i did not encounter any issues. Will be using this bike for a loooong time!

Best bang for buck do-it-all bicycle

There’s simply nothing else you can ask from the RC520. You definitely get more than what you paid for. Imagine— a 105 groupset costs 30k nowadays. This means you basically pay for 8k for everything else— yes, including semi-hydraulic disc brakes and an amazing colorway. Not to mention the versatility of this bike too. I recently converted mine to a gravel/commuting/touring setup with a wider set of tubeless tires (700x38c) and a flared handlebar. People can’t help but ask where I got my bike, and I’m proud to say, it’s from DECATHLON. Thank you for making such wonderful products attainable for every Juan!

A matchless awesome ride

It is my first experience to ride a road bike designed for touring. It is also my first time to use a gear ratio of ceank 50/34 and cassette 11/32. The frame is solid and it will not fail you during climbs when using 34/32. When downhill, it is also super fast due to its weight of 10.5 kg. Recommended for long rides with tough climbs but not ready for racing.

Excellent bike & excellent staff

This is the first bike I've ever bought and am incredibly satisfied with it. The only thing I would like to change would be the color scheme as it's a bit too plain/dark for me. I am thinking of replacing the handlebars wraps with an orange wrap to give it better flare. It also beat my expectation of how durable a road bike is. I've always used mountain bikes growing up that I borrowed from friends and thought road bikes weren't as durable because they were thin and light. This all changed when I rear-ended a taxi at about 30 kms - 40kms per hour and there was not even a dent or scratch on the bike. Thankfully the taxi itself was already worn out, and the driver was really understanding and polite. Definitely would recommend this product for its price. I think I will be using this for the next few years unless I get an upgrade.

Amazing bike

Owned this bike for around 3 weeks and did over 500km and a century mile RTI comfortably with no issues. The disc brakes have saved me from multiple close calls during wet weather which could have led to accidents. Great value for money, would have costed me $2k-3k if I bought a similar spec bike from other brands. 105+Aluminium is highly recommended for people starting to ride road bikes

Hello E,


We're glad you love the product! Happy to hear that the bike is serving you well :)


Thanks for choosing Decathlon, and we hope to see you again soon :)


Happy riding!

Fantastic Value - TRIBAN RC 520 Bike

This is my 1st road bike, having crossed over from foldies. Smooth shifting, decent weight (wind blew and toppled my bike while it was leaning against the railing by the river), good brakes (personally tested when i had to jam brake on a down slope as the light was changing to red). Beautiful bike.

Great all rounder!

Excellent value bike. Great for Long rides and a fast commute. Solid quality with Shimano 105 gears and shifters. The disc brakes work very well too. This has to be one of the best value bikes in Singapore!

Amazing cost to performance

$1000. What do you get? 1. Partial Shimano 105 2x11 groupset. 2. Tubeless ready 11 speed compatible wheelset. 3. Cable actuated hydraulic disc brakes. 4. Plentiful mounting points for racks and carriers. Compromises were to hit that price point, of course. QR skewers instead of Thru Axle. The TRP brakes were installed so they can use older, cheaper cable brifters instead of hydraulic. Externally routed cables makes it easier this cheaper for a factory line to set the bike compared to concealed cables. However, for what you do get, it's great. I do wish that you get more slack in the cables so getting a fit done would be so much easier.

La mejor relación precio calidad

LLevo 8 meses usandola, es una bicicleta genial es la mejor relación precio calidad del mercado (por lo menos en Chile) tiene una transmisión con algunos componentes Shimano 105, lo que ya es algo extraordinario a este nivel de precio. Los frenos por otro lado cumplen con su trabajo de forma eficiente, el cuadro es cómodo además rígido. En conclusión, la recomiendo de todas maneras para personas que lleven un tiempo en el mundo del ciclismo aficionado. Lo parte negativa, los ruidos que producen el sistema de bloqueo de los frenos.
