Some commuters like to spend a small fortune on their ‘work-horse’, investing in uber-lightweight components and all the fancy gear that goes with it. But for those of us on a budget, something a little cheaper is preferable. In fact, for the everyday commuter practicality, longevity and affordability all come in as key aspects when […]
B'Twin Bike Reviews
B’Twin is the bike manufacturing arm of the highly successful Decathlon Group, the French sporting goods retailer with stores throughout Europe.
Marketed and priced as mid-range bicycles, B’Twin has built itself a good reputation of offering affordable, valuable bikes that range in price from £39.99 kids balance bikes up to the £2,999 high-end ‘Ultra’ range of road bikes.
In our opinion, B’Twin gets it spot on with its low-to mid price range bikes that include the fantastic Triban road bike series, the Rockrider mountain bike series and the Elops classic series; all of which are superb bikes available from £159 up to around £500.

Where does one start when reviewing a pair of cheap cycling glasses? It is tough, let me tell you. I mean, if this were a £100+ pair of cycling sunglasses, it would be simple. I would start with the price (mostly questioning it, to be honest). However, these sunglasses – the B’Twin ST 100 Rockrider […]
With ever increasing congestion, rising fuel prices and scarcity of parking, it isn’t all that surprising that cycling to work is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. That is why commuter type bikes are now a huge business for manufacturers, catering to an ever-growing group of pedal powered city and town workers. In fact, figures […]
The thing about us at Cheap Cycling is that we have some in house rules. They aren’t set in stone, but generally speaking anything we review or feature needs to tick two boxes – is it 1) good quality and 2) inexpensive? The truth is it can get a bit fluffy – inexpensive is relative. […]
As you probably know, we are big fans of Decathlon’s B’Twin road bike range – they’re just good bikes for the money and they’ve got a bike for every budget and ability. But you would be forgiven – especially if you’re new to cycling – for not fully understanding the differences between the various bikes, […]
B’Twin has been a go to brand for those looking for an excellent bike on a budget. We have already tested a number of B’Twin road bikes and loved what we found. In this review, we got our hands on the B’Twin Rockrider 520 mountain bike and took it to the road…well actually we took […]
We’re big fans of Decathlon’s B’Twin range – it’s good quality, stylish and very affordable for cyclists on a budget. So we challenged ourselves with putting together a whole cycling wardrobe for £100 and believe it or not, we managed it – well actually we went 93p over but we hope you’ll forgive us for […]
Sometimes spending just a little extra on an entry level bike can make a reasonably big difference in terms of performance and comfort. With good budget bikes starting around the £250 mark, we are always intrigued to find out what more we get for our money, say if we were to spend an additional £50 […]
Winter riding can be very harsh on your hands – glued to your handlebars, hardly moving and facing the full brunt of the icy winds and driving rain. Keeping them warm and dry can be the difference between an enjoyable ride and a highly uncomfortable one so a decent pair of winter gloves is essential. […]
We here at Cheap Cycling are big fans of the B’Twin Triban range and so jumped at the opportunity to review the entry level bike in the Triban range – the B’Twin Triban 100. Having already reviewed the mid-range model the Triban 500, we were expecting quite a lot from the Triban 100, despite the […]
