triban 3

Postby sumitkaria » Fri Nov 16, 2012 07:00 am

hi was looking for a good winter bike and this seems to tick all the boxes. cant get to a decathlon store as quite far and no spare time. am 5'5 and was wondering if the 51cm frame is best?

not sure if this helps, i had the 60cm frame but the geometry actually worked out to a 58cm frame.

I would seriously think about going and trying out the bike for size as better to get the correct size than have the hassle of returning it for a swap. Just check they have stock before you go though as a very popular bike at the moment.

I'm around 30" inside leg. I can straddle my 54cm framed Triban 3 easily with a bit of room in the undercarriage department.
When I got mine they had 54's and the next size up. As previously suggested, better off checking before you pay them a visit. Don't want you going out of your way to find they aint got any!
