Our CGR Titanium bike is hand built in the traditional way by frame building craftsmen, but it has also been designed to be compatible with all the recent advances including electronic shifting, internal cable routing and hydraulic braking. The bikes are hand assembled to your chosen specification in our UK workshop.
The seamless, triple-butted (3AI/2.5V) titanium tube set selected is a naturally compliant frame material which absorbs vibrations well and also offers great performance and longevity. The ovalized top tube of the CGR Ti adds to the frame's horizontal stiffness for performance and the vertical compliance for outstanding comfort.
The slacker tube angles of the CGR Ti not only provide greater comfort over a race bike, but also keep the rider more centred and better balanced for endurance riding. The tube lengths and angles of the CGR Ti have been carefully chosen to offer the optimal balance for quick handling given the wide tyre and wheel options.
Finishing touches like the classic polished chrome finish head badge just add to the charm of this quick and capable bike with timeless and traditional lines.

Ribble CGR Ti Customer Reviews
I’ve owned carbon, steel and AU road bikes and they’ve all been great – This is my first titanium bike and it’s on another level! The ride is plush, very comfortable with great vibration damping – much like a high grade steel bike – but with weight, responsiveness, control and power transfer of a carbon bike.
I went with the 105 groupset and the default Mavic wheels. Both great, 105 is very close to Ultegra in terms of performance and smoothness, but just about 400g heavier. I invested a bit more into the finish kit, going for level 3 carbon seat post, bars and stem – these help keep the weight down and the comfort up.
As for the Ribble frame, really looks stunning! It’s very well though out with standard fittings such as the through axles, BSA BB, flat mounts for disc callipers, internal cable routing and a 27.2 seat post – All help make this bike future proof, easy to maintain and easy to upgrade components. There are mounts for mudguards and a rear rack too.
I’ve ridden a few Sunday rides (about 80k) and my daily commute across London on this bike and its been faultless and great fun. I haven’t yet taken it off road – but I cannot wait. I will be adding 650b wheels to my setup soon – A true do-it-all bike.
10 out of 10! Best bike I’ve owned and will last for many years!
