Polar CS 500 HRM/Bike Computer, Who has one?
Which one would you buy & why?
£269 for the sport 1
£389 for the Allez 16 (2010)
Is it worth the extra for the Allez??

Well at a glance the specs look very similar, the main difference seems to be the decathlon's steel fork. The allez at £389 is a bargain, the decathlon looks good value too but i'd pay the extra for the carbon fork

Don't know anything about the Decathlon but own an Allez 16 and my father bought one too. Lovely bike to ride and at that price a bargain. Check out the review on this very site and then run out buy it!

I had a Decathlon and it was a great little bike for the money.

Mine is red and my dad's is silver so the red is the cool version

I went for the Allez 16 in the end, it turned up today with a chunk out of the fork. To say I'm not happy is an understatement!
