I'm looking to buy the much raved about B'TWIN bike as it fits my budget and seems to be the best within its price range. Currently on decathlon the red version of the bike is sold out (3), however the 3A is in stock. I was wondering whether there was much difference between the two as I know the 3A doesn't have a carbon fibre fork, the two specs are here; ... ban-3.html ... n-3-a.html

I'm not sure whether the gears are also different on the 3A, but was wondering if anyone with more knowledge than me could shed some light on the differences.

If not, any suggestions of bike around the same price would be fantastic.

Kind regards,

    Triban 3 has shimano 2300 group and the 3A has a microshift group, not sure what the difference in performance is though, I had 2300 on my last bike and it seemed ok to me
