When you're out on this bike the ladies want you and the lads want to be you! This is an amazing machine!
Bike arrived professionally packaged. Took about 45 minutes to unpack and put it together. The assembly was clearly professionally done. No rotor rub or wonky shifting. Ribble was kind enough to send the bike across the pond set up with the brakes right hand rear. Pre-ride bolt check found that everything was tip top.
The quality of the ride is amazing. Whoever said "steel is real" was not kidding. Smooth, silent, and efficient as you glide down whatever surface you've chosen. I'm 5'11" and 200 pounds and the medium is a spot on fit. First ride consisted of 40 miles on a combination of road, dirt road, and single track on the first ride with no discomfort at all. The gearing on the 1x11 drivetrain is perfect for the front range of the Rocky Mountains. The Level components are sleek and clean looking. Hydraulic brakes allow you to brake with more confidence and power so you can brake later increasing your overall speed.
Great bike, great price, great purchase experience, superfast shipping to US! Rides nicely and surely won't find many of these around my area!
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.
