Triban RC120

Cycling Plus (Malaysia) - - FIRST RIDE -


Triban is the name that the sports su­per­mar­ket Decathlon uses for its bud­get bikes. The Triban RC120 has a 6061 alu­minium frame and, im­pres­sively, a 12k car­bon fork. All the ca­bling is ex­ter­nal and the bar is sub­tly swept-back and flat­tened on the tops for ex­tra com­fort. The ge­om­e­try is the more re­laxed of the two.

For our money Mi­croshift’s gears beat Shi­mano Tour­ney’s shift­ing.

The eight-speed 11-34 cas­sette pro­vides wide gear­ing range, while car­tridge cal­liper brakes com­plete an ex­cep­tional kit line-up.

Rack and mud­guard fit­tings plus room for 28mm tyres make this a top-notch choice for com­mut­ing with a rack or for year-round train­ing. The 34x34 bot­tom gear is great for climb­ing, and the brak­ing’s good too.

Com­fort­able, good en­durance ge­om­e­try, car­bon fork, a gen­uinely ex­cel­lent range of eight-speed Mi­croshift gears and cal­liper car­tridge brakes. What’s not to love?
