I ordered my Ribble CX after shopping around for weeks. I have never bought a bike without trying it out or even seeing it in person beforehand. Initial I was disappointed to find out after placing the order there was at least a 21 working day time scale. The dread of not knowing what I had bought and having to wait for it to come was killing me. From placing the order to receiving the bike was 15 working days. Communicate from Ribble during this time was good.
As for the bike, this is a new addition to my collection. With not knowing much about Cyclocross I chose an entry level bike. I come from a triathlon background. The bike has an aggressive positioning but rides perfectly. The bike is very comfortable but direct and responsive. I have no complains about the bike. It seems too nice to get it dirty!
At delivery of the bike I notice a few very minor visual imperfections. I contacted Ribble immediately and they sorted it all out with ease.
Fantastic bike! Pre sale service in Birmingham was extremely helpful and friendly.
After sale communication was very good.
1 area for improvement would be to give an idea of the expected build time before the purchase is completed. In my case i was only notified that it would take longer than the 2 weeks initially advised 2 days before my completion date. This was rectified quickly and efficiently once raised but an improvement would be to notify customers sooner.
