Just wondering if anyone has had any experiene with B-Twin bikes. I am going to look at a B-Twin sport 3 that was brought last July and spent most of the time under cover in a garage. It will be my first road bike

What are they like and how much should i pay, would be a great help???

Cheers for your time

    BTwin are Decathlon's own-brand models and generally pitched at the 'value' end of the market. You need to know what model and how much the buyer paid - but 75% of retail is reasonable for an unused bike.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Guess the best thing to do is go take a look and have a go!
    He has advertised it at £350 which sounds a bit much to me? But he said it had hardly been ridden and cost £600.
    Seen brand new one on ebay for £399 too.
    Iv not really ridden road bikes before is there anything major to look for when seeing if the bike is the right size?

    Cheers again!!!!
  • Brought the bike today!!!! Been for a short blast and it seems great!! Not having a road bike before i didn't really have anything to compare it with, but it felt really comfortable and responsive. Runs smooth and looks a good quality bike. Looking forward to putting many happy miles on it.
    Thanks all for your help and advice, much appreciated!!!
