Everything about ordering our CGR725 was exceptional from the live online advice to help us choose, being kept up to date as the order progressed and the delivery which, very pleasingly was ahead of schedule. The bike was easy to assemble on arrival and clearly very well set-up; brakes and gears were all well tuned.
The bike was for my teenage son who, like many, has got back to cycling over recent weeks. I've never seen him so excited when we knew the bike was being delivered and he was not disappointed.
I was kicked out of bed at 6:30am the following morning to go for the first full ride, my teenage son has never done that before! The bike was everything that we expected and perfect for a ride on our local Cotswold roads and tracks. Indeed, I'm looking enviously at my son's new bike and wondering whether it might be time to update my old road bike... Thank you Ribble for an exceptional experience from first click of my laptop to the many clicks of the new gears!
Great bike for all conditions, the frame quality in excellent and is IMHO worth some extra money over the aluminum one. I had several high-end carbon bikes before and honestly, I am much happier riding this classy steel beauty. I spent ages troubleshooting various creaking noises so I can really appreciate how quiet this bike is. Overall, I can definitely recommend this bike. Also, in the Czech Republic where I am from, I feel like I am the only one with this bike :)
TIP: just make sure you get some chain slap guard and you are ready for your next adventure!
