Great to ride and great value
I bought this bike after reading good reviews in the cycling press, and was not disappointed. It feels light and responsive, rigid under hard out-of-the-saddle pedalling, but comfortable for long rides.
It's extremely versatile - I've ridden it on low grade roads in the hills in the south of France, long stretches on gravel, and recently climbed the Col du Tourmalet and Mont Ventoux.
I changed the tyres for Michelin Pro Endurance 4 28mm (which are quite incredible tyres), the saddle, and the pedals for SPDs. Otherwise it's all stock. Nothing else is worth upgrading until it wears out.
Ride, versatility, security downhill, price.
Saddle, tyres.

Very well specced bike for the money
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Have bought loads of stuff from Decathlon over the years and had heard good things about their bikes so when my old bike developed a cracked headtube i was looking around for a new bike. Was initially looking at the 520 but when the 540 came along at the reduced price it was a no brainer.

On paper, all very good components let down marginally by the prowheel crankset. Never heard of them before but so far has performed satisfactorily - no missed shifts. Brakes are continential layout ie rear brake on right, whereas American / British tend to have rear on the left.

I usually do my own servicing so wasn't worried if things weren't set up properly - gears needed minor adjustments.
However my only gripe is that it must have been assembled by Arnold Schwazanegger as the seatpost and stem bolts had been tightened to the point that the hex head was being stripped. Worse was that the rear skewer was so tight I needed a a tyre lever to prise it open. This was because I wanted to upgrade the tyres but if I was out on a ride and had a puncture, there was no way i was going to get it undone. Please can someone let the factory know that bolts only need to be "tight enough"

Ride is smooth and fairly plush owe in part to the supple tyres.. Didn't get the rumble thru the handlebars like I used to on my old bike which would leave my numb hands after an hours ride. Saddle not the comfortiest but I'm sure each has their personal choice. Replaced mine with a tried and tested Charge Spoon.

Overall 9.4 / 10 let down by some component choice and over zealous tightening
Good quality components and fit. Nice paintjob
Saddle and crankset. Overtightened nuts/bolts

Dear Sir,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review of this bike.  The replacement model comes with the Shimano R500 crankset and new 11s 105 groupset.

Bought as my daughters first road bike, she loves it. Might be a little heavy, but for £500 what would you expect. Nice to see Shimano 105, gear train, shame it wasn't a full groupset. Good choice of 50/34 compact, and 11-28 cassette. Might look at upgrading to 11 speed, and add a 32 to the cassette for the big climbs. All in all a sound investment for £500.

Not full groupset, would have liked Shimano brakes

First road bike for son. Don't know much about the build quality of BTwin however reviews of 540 were overwhelmingly positive in bike press. At this price Shimano 105 shifters and the speed gearing plus carbon forks are , to say the least, exceptional. Then add in good Mavic wheels too! Staff were friendly and helpful. Let's see how the bike goes...

The bike was fully prepared on collection. Gears were correctly tuned. It is light and easy to handle/operate. The only negatives for me are: the saddle could be more comfortable. Coming from a Specialized bike, I find this one not as good. And also the pedal clips which have removed as I was finding them annoying. Otherwise, I love the bike.
Light bike. Easy to operate. Comfortable ride.
Saddle could be more comfortable. Pedal clips.
Love my new road bike

Great - My first road bike so not much to compare it to. I'm doing 20miles a day on it and it's just fun to ride.

The seat is pretty un comfy, even with padded shorts. There were a couple of minor cosmetic defects on the handle bars when it arrived. Luckily you can't really notice them so I didn't bother returning.
Fast, very smart looking

Better than expected

I tried lots of bikes and studied specs and reviews and this came out top. This was the only bike I didn't try for fit and it fits like a glove. At this price the wheels and Shimano 105 make it best in class. Brakes are better than expected, progressive without much fade. I'm just getting back into road bikes and was a bit apprehensive but this bike inspires confidence and I'm going faster and further than anticipated. Padded shorts are a great investment. Bike looks good and not too many about. Great fun and made me feel 12 again.
Light, comfortable, quick and responsive
Had to true wheel a little and reseat tyre
