I bought the bike a week back and have clocked around 120k on it since. Had to do one visit to shop to retune the rear derailleur, but except that rest has been good. After graduating from MTB, it feels like graduating to sports cars from SUV. Gear shifts are precise and crisp and the handling is also very sharp. The saddle could be a bit more supportive, but I guess the extra weight is just not worth it and nothing a good pair of chamois cannot fix.
Worth it!

This is my 1st road bike. I was planning to buy the T520. But since the price difference was only 5k, upgraded to T540. There's no other bike in the market at this price with Shimano tiagra group set. The gears shift like hot knife on butter. I've not had a mis-shift in the last 200kms. Inclines, declines and planes don't matter with this cycle. One can maintain one's cadence (cranking speed) on any gradient. Even though relatively light, the construction is sturdy. The wheels can take Indian (broken) roads provided one is relatively careful. But it's on smooth roads, that the 540 shines... If you give it a good road and slight downhill, the cycle litrally flys!!! (At really high speeds, there's a slight wobble from the front. Maybe it's a stem length issue? Mine is a small - stem length 80mm) Overall, I would highly recommend the T540. Also, if you go to Ansal plaza, Delhi, please make it a point to talk to Aftab for biking queries. He is highly knowledgeable and very customer oriented. Cheers!
Best bike for the price
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I've done three 50k rides on this bike so far, i have to admit that this bike is absolute winner for the price quoted. No competitor in India is offering Tiagra group set at this price range.
Thought indian counterpart come with Shimano tiagra instead of 105, which is a minor bummer, but hey, i got it on 20% discount, so no complaints.
The Bike is very smooth, sturdy and the gear shifts are on point.
The only let down i felt on this bike so far is the pedal width and laggy brakes... 4 star for this piece of art..
Suggestion to the manufacturing dept: please bring in more color variants and can increase the pedal width.
Indian spec are bad
Used for 1 week or less
I don't know why spec of this bike in India is low compared to other countries and prices are way too high for this specific product. Such as in 650£ you get mavik aksium wheel, 105 groupset etc, and what we get is tiagra with RS 2 so bad Decathlon, even btwin global site have high spec for this bike but to fool Indians the quality is been compromised.
Response of the brand
 Hello Tajus, 

Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. Here are 2 links for the Triban 520. The first one from China(https://www.decathlon.com.cn/en/p/triban-540-road-bike-cn/_/R-p-164111?mc=8379189&c=RED) and the second one from UK (https://www.decathlon.co.uk/triban-540-road-bike-105-red-blue-id_8364452.html).
The bike produced for the whole of Asia is the China model with the components as seen on the product page. Bikes in Uk are produced in Portugal and France. The bikes in the UK are of much lower price because they are not imported but produced locally hence no import charges. We in India import bikes from China. This increases the landing price of the bike. Secondly, if we do not import from China and get it from Uk the price will be much higher ( about 10,000 to 20,000/- higher) because of the higher duties and transit.
In terms of components, we have tried to match as much as possible the UK bike. There will always be a reduction in price if there is a downgrade of the components. There is never a case where we try to miss lead our users in order to sell a product at a higher price. I remain available for any questions.

Best bike for this price point
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
The components seen in this bike is found only in bikes more than 100K.....it has good performance and comes with carbon fork and Shimano Tiagra 11speed groupset
Unbelievable specs at a very decent price
Used for 3 to 6 months
Mine came with Shimano 105 shifters, front and rear derailleur. However, the crank is Prowheel and the cassette is Tiagra (10 speed). 25MM tires are decent. Bit front vibration. Overall an amazing bike.
**Feel sorry that it is now downgraded to all Tiagra parts***
Good road bike
I'm currently residing in China, so I got this bike because it has a frame that will allow me to convert it for a long tour back home to Europe, right here and now I have a decent road bike I use for daily training and commutes.
Saddle was changed right of the bat to a Brooks Swallow and tiers to Schwalbe Pro One Plus.The ones that came with it seemed good, and since I like to mix the road a bit I did spin it for a cyclo cross track and they held up well. But I prefer Schwalbe like on my other bike. Pedals changed to clip-less before I even mounted the original crappy ones.
Tiagra is decent and shifts well, I will be upgrading to ultegra prior to the journey but for the start cash this bike is a good deal. And a great starting point for anyone new to the world of cycling.
Overall it's a great bike. I am a 170cm rider with about 65kg. I took frame size M and it fits me well, maybe a stem just a cm shorter but I will still need to check that.
Definite recommendation.
Quality Bike for the Price
I bought this bike a month ago in China, where it is specced with Tiagra and Shimano RS1 wheels. I have ridden about 600km over various terrain including mountains and gravel roads.
First off the frame and components are relatively heavy but they seem to be of very good quality. Everything is working as expected and nothing has disappointed me.
The only things that I have changed are the pedals (for clipless) and the tyres for some 32c Continental Gatorskins. With the new tyres the bike rolls very well and is quite compliant.
What I was most impressed with when riding the bike is the geometry of the frame. This doesn't feel like a cheap bike to ride. It handles quickly and is yet also stable enough on mountain descents. My previous bike was a very expensive carbon framed Cannondale Synapse with full SRAM Red components, and I have to say that I prefer the way this bike rides compared with that one. Obviously the BTwin is heavier but for day to day riding, cycling training and weekend touring the extra weight is of no consequence to me.
Other good things; there is plenty of clearance for large volume tyres or for mud guards etc making this a really versatile machine. The seat is also very good for me. I have never had a saddle that fits me well despite having tried many and spending lots of money on occasion but this one, although very firm at first, works very well on long rides.
Overall I thoroughly recommend this bike for anyone who wants a high quality machine (that is suitable for heavy use) that rides well but doesn't cost a fortune. I like it so much, I plan to buy one for my girlfriend as well.
