Jamie Simpson
Absolutely over the moon with my new bike. Excellent quality of workmanship and a brilliant service I would definitely recommend Ribble to anyone that is looking to purchase a quality bike.
Patrick H
Ordered the bike instore and was available for pick up within 5 days. I rode it for the entirety of the 19-20 CX season and achieved some great results. The bike handles great, even in touch conditions, is light when running is needed and is perfectly set up for aggressive CX racing. I have also used it on the road and on gravel tracks. The perfect bike for someone who wants an out and out CX racer that is still adaptable to a range of uses.

I took the CX SL racing and was immediately struck by its speed; the stiff handlebar and frameset channelling power efficiently to the rear wheel - 4/5
