    had my boardman road comp stolen last week, was gutted. really loved the bike :sad: . wasnt insured (ny own stupid fault). decided to buy another bike but decided to go cheaper this time. following the advice on this forum i went out and bought a Triban 3 from decathlon.

    it weighs more than the boardman and looks alot smaller even though its supposedly a 1cm bigger frame size. it feels like a more racier riding position as the front is angled alot lower.

    i've just hooked up my garmin edge and took it out for a spin and on the first try ive smashed my pr on a hill ive always found tough going and also faster on what is a big chunk of my ride home from work.

    its an amazing bit of kit for £300.

    They really should open one somewhere loosely around this part of the country :smile:

    Travel wise, i would say the nottingham one is the easiest to get to from MK, and you can always go to ikea while you are there :whistle:

    i reckon they should open one on the new developement at Stadium MK

    Don't understand why Decathlon don't open more stores - besides your area they must be missing out on £ squillions of sales to people in the SW - no store more SW than Reading, or more S than B'ham. Nothing in the whole of Wales. Maybe they just can't handle the logistics of more than a handful of stores in the UK?

    Looks like they're going to open one in Coventry - that's closer for you.
