Decathlon have dropped the terrible B'twin name, smartened up their bikes and done some relaxed road bikes for the british market. The prices are incredible. The RC 500 is £529 15 - Cycling - RC 500 Road Bike Blue As far as I can tell the spec is almost the same as this Genesis CDA at £949 CDA 20 | Genesis Even getting last year's models for the road/gravel crossover market, you pay minimum £700 for that spec. Decathlon also do the RC 520 that features Shimano 105 and hybrid disc brakes for £729 15 - Cycling - RC 520 Road Bike I don't actually want hybrid brakes and 105 just makes a bike more stealable in London, but if you're wanting those things I don't believe anyone in the world can beat those prices. Obviously I'd like in theory to support a decent company like Genesis over a massive multinational, but at those prices it's hard. So are there any other reasons *not* to buy them?
