1, 2 or 3?
With cycle scheme not really paying near those prices.
They are very different bikes. What’s the intended purpose?
I dunno, the emondas are basically all rounders. The propel more for sprinting it’s true. I ride outside so rarely outside of commuting I don’t know if it matters? 1,2,3 hours in the mountains of Kent.
For me, 1 has good wheels and shifting and looks best online. 2 also good wheels and looks, only standard shifting, 3 basic looking by comparison, alu and least good wheels but still as light as the SL6 and still has di2
No vote, no prize!
You have a TT bike for IM right? If that’s the case, I’d go with the more all rounder if you aren’t looking to cycle race.
The red one, obvs
Yup 1 as it is red
Triban from Decathlon then
Just Facebook marketplace it and buy another new one when it’s fooked.
Never replace a single part.
That’s a tonne of money on a bike you rarely ride outside.
The 3 Tribans from Decathlon we bought for the lads back in 2020 have been fantastic bikes. Really solid and robust. Disc brakes, tubeless ready, 700 quid. Maybe just a little heavy, but very rideable. For the dosh you are looking to spend you could get 3 or 4 of them and use them in rotation
That said, I like your option #1 best but with my sensible head on would probably buy #3
It’s okay, I’m going to procrastinate until neither are available and then post another thread in a few months.
I just want to point out that the post and the poll seem to be completely opposite. Cheers!
The poll is overwhelmingly in favour of the Propel. Not a single post recommends it
I’ve got a Propel, ain’t going to make you cool with the kids but a decent bike, fast, good spec and can be used with clip-ons in races.
I’ve never been the biggest fan of Trek, although I don’t mind the speed concept.
I didn’t vote
while we are talking about Triban, I just fitted a Triban front wheel £50 and unbranded decathlon 28c tyre £20 to my Canyon commuter
the bike was supplied with Fulcrum wheel and Scwalbe tyre so it’s a downgrade. however I kept getting punctures so maybe not ideal for the commute here. the Triban wheel and tyre are heavier and feel like should be more solid…
weigh in: wife’s bontrager wheel, tyre, tube: 1100g
fulcrum wheel, schwalbe tyre, tube: 1240g
triban wheel, decathlon tyre, tube: 1560g
will prob pinch her wheel if I ever race it, but am off that at the mo
That’s pretty expensive - I usually pay £100 for cheap OEM wheelsets, inc tyres. Where people have whipped them straight off a new bike to put some better hoops on.
Currently got some RS11s on my winter steed got £100
yeah all this sort of stuff costs more here. Got to work with no puncture
Just wait for survey 4.
I will go IMJ and not answer the question and suggest another alternative, however, if you can get a 2023 or 2024 Giant TCR that is what I would go with.
If you can, get a bike with 105 12 speed Di2
