The bike is very stable and easy to ride over long distances. The set up I opted for feels more MTB/Gravel orientated and is suited to off-road riding. I do feel that with the larger 29” wheels and smaller tyres it would probably also be well suited to hardpack/road use, it would roll faster but would probably be too harsh a ride for sure on rough terrain.
I am running big volume 2.8 tyres on 27.5” wheels which makes it comfortable and surprisingly capable off-road on rough terrain.
It handles and rides well even when fully loaded and carrying weight. If anything, the weight makes it feel more stable and planted. Even when loaded I can tackle technical climbs and enjoy descending.
There's plenty of room around the bike for different types of luggage. Ideal for self-sufficient multi-day trips. With fork racks on and the right luggage configuration there is ample space for lightweight camping/cooking and riding equipment.
I love how the flared drop bars feel when descending on the drops. This allows me to control the bike well and use the brakes off-road to navigate technical descents.
The high quality Reynolds 725 steel frame feels solid and dependable but not cumbersome or heavy. The tubing is lively and when matched with lower tyre pressures it certainly improves the ride quality.
I feel that a wide range cassette and 1x set up are ideal for this bike. Even fully loaded on a steep climb you can spin away over the rough stuff. It's also quite happy plugging away up a mountain pass on the tarmac.
I've ridden the bike over a variety of terrains including tarmac, gravel, grass, rocky bridleway, mud, boggy waterlogged ground, crossing fords, slate, etc. The 2.8 WTB Rangers run (with a tube) at around 15-20 PSI offer fantastic grip regardless of which terrain I rode over. Running them slightly harder would obviously benefit hard pack surfaces but the point that the lower pressures help with grip and act as suspension when the bike is fully loaded.
Versatility is at the core of the CGR range and this titanium model certainly ticks all of the boxes. Less aggressive than a racer, the endurance geometry of the CGR Ti makes this bike comfortable, composed, responsive and ready for any ride.
The all-new Ribble CGR 725 offers the traditional class and ride feel experienced on a high-end steel frame, complemented by the contemporary features and geometry resulting in a rugged, highly versatile multi-terrain bike.
Light and robust the CGR Alloy is an impressive bike that will take you anywhere with capable performance and striking style. Strong, versatile and durable, the geometry of the hand built, British-designed CGR Alloy has been carefully formulated to conquer a wide range of riding surfaces with ease.
