CX SL Frameset
The CX SL frameset is manufactured from a carefully selected blend of Toray’s T1000 and T800 carbon layered to an exacting specification using an advanced monocoque mould technology incorporating an EPS inner core system which ensures complete consistency of the structural integrity of the fibres and resin throughout the frame. This system also eliminates excess material on the inside of the frame.
Stunningly beautiful bike which is extremely capable both on road and off road. It seems to just keep going in thick wet mud. Comfortable, handles well and accelerates quickly. Bit of weight still in the wheels but overall a light bike and the tyres are very thin so before sort out some tyre protection to prevent those pesky flats. Really happy with my purchase and can't wait to get out on it again!
The bike is great but was disappointed with the quality of the finish.
I purchased some water bottle holders (from Ribble) and the seat tube cage holder does not fit with the bolts supplied. The carbon seems to be thicker and is raised at the mounts so purchased longer bolts to get around the issue.
There is also a minor flaw with the paintwork around the inspection hatch on the downtube where it looks as though a repair has been made.
The bike rides nicely and I was really happy with the service at the Ribble shop in Birmingham.
