Shimano’s 105 groupset is the entry point into 11-speed shifting and has established itself as the most popular choice on the market today. Thanks in no small part due to the exceptionally smooth, precision shifting performance and incredible value. With the addition of Mavic’s ever-reliable Aksium wheelset this ensures maximum reliability as well as long term durability. With a generous tyre clearance plus mudguard and rack compatibility, the CGR AL is designed to excel both on or off-road and across a variety of surfaces.
Shimano 105 benefits from technology and features trickled down from its premium tier siblings and makes this ‘pro level’ shifting performance more accessible. Shimano’s own 105 hydraulic disc brakes are supremely powerful with superior modulation for complete braking confidence.
Mavics Aksium wheelset's impressive strength to weight ratio, reliability and durability makes them the obvious choice for any multi-terrain bike. Schwalbe G-One tyres are a multi-purpose, tubeless-ready tyre with impressive grip and fast-rolling ride characteristics for rides on paved surfaces, gravel or out on the trails.
The finishing kit is an all LEVEL affair consisting of LEVEL 1 alloy handlebars and stem with a lightweight LEVEL 2 carbon seatpost. Completing the build and providing additional comfort in the contact areas is a foam padded Prologo Kappa RS saddle, LEVEL embossed bar tape and a set of Ribble full coverage mudguards for protection from the elements.

What can I say about my bike? What can I say about the experience of shopping with Ribble? Well, both are awesome. Having spent years riding off the shelf bikes and gradually customising them to get a close fit I decided that since a big birthday was coming up it was time to save my back and go custom. I spoke to many friends about various options and the name Ribble kept coming up, so I went to check them out at my nearest store. I knew I wanted a gravel bike, for me cycling is about adventure. The two agents in the shop were so helpful and knowledgeable. We discussed the options, what I wanted, my riding style and then they fitted me for the bike.
Due to my riding style I wanted to make an alteration to bike that the options menu’s didn’t allow but this wasn’t a problem as a quick email to customer services got me the change I wanted, no hassel!
It took me a while to choose my colours, since I intend for this to be the last bike I buy until I’m
50 (though n+1 always tries to convince me otherwise) I opted for custom paint. I was kept informed of the status of my order from as soon as it was placed.
When my bike arrived, everything I had asked for was there and everything was perfect. The paint job is stunning, I have the bars and gears that I asked for. After coming back from my first ride I realised that for the first time in a very long time my lower back and shoulders didn’t hurt. I took it out over gravel and along the estuary path near where I live and it handled the terrain brilliantly. I honestly couldn’t be happier with my bike. This one is truly MY bike. I’m so happy with it that it currently resides in the front room ( much to the distress of my other half!) I would recommend a Ribble purchase to anyone looking for a new bike. Thank you for my dream machine!
I just received the CGR 105 in dark blue color. It is a great machine offering a smooth, fast and comfortable ride.
Thank you RIBBLE for all your care, dedication and great work. Keep it up!
