    I was just on the phone to Decathlon, they've told me that the Tribans come in more sizes than I thought. They come in 51s and 54s and they've said that it's fine if I come down and try the sizes in the store. They told me that I can try the Triban 5 as well as the frame's are identical and that it would feel the same as the 3.

    My dad's also told me that if I want the Triban, I can get the £300 and buy it tonight! Woo!

    I'll post an update later on (possibly with pictures? :whistle:) letting you know how it goes!

    See if I can find one that fits first! I've got a feeling that the 51 will be too small and that the 54 will be too big.

    if the 54 is too big you will grow into it,in the meantime ,lower seat and shorter stem ,sure there must be a compromise

    Wouldn't a longer stem be a better idea? :crazy:

    They're gonna let me try it out and possibly give it a ride around the shop. We'll see what happens

    Good luck with your new bike, I have the T5, the 3 & 5 are great bikes and compare very well with bikes costing much more.
