    I'm thinking about getting a Btwin Triban 540 and wondered if anyone has had one, recommend it or can recommend alternatives?

    I will mainly be using it for commuting but may take it out occasionally on the weekend.

    I'm new to cycling so don't really know what's good. I currently commute on a cheap Carrera Subway from Halfords but find it a bit heavy on long climbs.

    I won't be getting cleats as I don't like the feeling of being stuck in when commuting.

    don't know the bike personally, but looking at the decathlon site the bike looks reasonable at the price point. The cycling weekly editors choice is also a plus.

    go for it..

    Thanks - just waiting for it to come back in stock!! The closest one to me in store is in Oxford and none online.
