PERFECT COMBO OF
ALUMINIUM & SHIMANO 105
The Endurance AL 105 is a practical road bike with the look and feel of a high-end performance race bike. The endurance-based geometry makes it rider friendly for those long-distance, all- day in the saddle epics The Shimano 105 R7000 series groupset contains many of the same features as the top-tier race groupset, Dura Ace and as a result represents outstanding performance and value.

Having started cycling only 1 year I decided to invest in a decent road bike. After research and recommendations I decided on a Ribble Endurance AL Disc 105 and could not be happier with my choice, sorry I am not experienced enough to go into technical details but I can say it is great to ride, handles really well in winter with the continental gp 4 seasons on the apparently forgiving Mavic Aksiums and disc breaks very reassuring in winter too. I am already seeing improvements in my accents, speed and distance, I just cannot wait to clock up many more miles on this bike. With the added advantage of great and friendly assistance and advice from all the staff at the Preston store.
So, my first ever road bike. After shopping around and reading some reviews, I decided to pop into the Preston showroom for a nosey. Was really impressed with the set-up and the very helpful staff. I had been looking at a gravel orientated bike, but as I'm a mountain biker I already have the off-road thing covered. In the end I went with the Endurance AL disc. Completed my build and in order in the shop a few weeks later and then the wait began. I was surprised to get an email confirming my bike was ready a few days before it was due, so I called into the shop ASAP to collect it. I was shown around the bike and an issue with the front axle was discovered. To the credit of the guy that was there, he sorted a replacement straight away, and I was on my way with my new Ribble. I had to wait a few days before getting out on my first ride with it. I had never ridden a road bike before, but it didn't take long to get comfortable. I specified wider bars than normal, thicker softer bar tape and a carbon seat post for a bit more comfort. Must admit, I'm really impressed with the ride quality. Not much buzz through the bike, and the geometry is nice and relaxed. I'm not quite sure I like the white colour, but that's not the most important thing. The finish of the frame is great, with only welds being visible on the lower parts of the frame. The 105 groupset is really nice, smooth slick shifting through-out. I probably should have gone with a large rear cassette, but will see how it goes. So, so far so good. Really impressed with the customer service levels with Ribble, and the bike is fantastic value. I've even bought some lycra shorts....
A great all-rounder, the latest iteration of our classic tried and tested Audax bike; this bike will handle whatever you can throw at it. The Endurance AL is a fast and light platform for the everyday cyclist or weekend leisure rider.
