I’ve had my CGR 725 for a couple months now and taken quite a few rides. I love everything about this bike. The fit and finish are immaculate. It’s stable, quick and comfortable, and I’ve had no mechanical issues with the frame or components. My only regret is not having purchased from Ribble before. Thanks again!
So far, I’ve been mostly riding on the road since rain has turned the fire roads and trails into thick clay mud. That said, even as a road bike I’m happy with the GRX400 gravel spec. I expect to be back in the dirt once the rain lets up long enough for the mud to dry. For now, the stock 45c WTB tires are appreciated on the frequent sections of poorly maintained, decaying and sinking tarmac, and the GRX 2x drive train is perfect for the hills in the surrounding area. Also, the handle bars are comfortable and shaped well, increasing my confidence riding through poor conditions.
About a month after my first ride, I got a flat after picking up a tiny wire in my back tire. Since I had upgraded to the Mavic All-Road DCL wheels, I took the opportunity to switch to tubeless. Following the Mavic video for UST setup on YouTube, it took about 5 minutes per wheel to remove the tube, remount the tire and seat the bead. It was just as easy as it looked in the video, even with the WTB tires, and only required the included valves, some sealant and my regular floor pump. Then of course there were a couple tiny holes that the sealant filled after some sloshing around.
Anyway, I’m off to a great start this year and looking forward to many miles traveling with my trusty new companion.

This is looking West up the waterways leading into California’s Central Valley, with Martinez on the right and Mount Diablo in the distance.
