I found the Ribble purchase experience very good and my Endurance SL Disc was ready to collect earlier than the estimated date.
The bike looks really good, I like the square profile of the tubes and the geometry is great. It certainly feels like a premium bit of kit.
I’ve only ridden the SL once so far, the maiden voyage was one of mixed emotion.
Firstly the positives: Rides well, accelerates swiftly, climbs way better than my previous bike, the icetech brakes are sweet, comfortable riding position. On one of my regular routes I achieved 31 PRs on Strava!
The ONLY negative is that unfortunately the gears have not been setup properly by the Ribble Engineers. The front derailleur grinds on the chain and the down-shifting on the rear plagued by clicking/clunking/half gears, it sounds like a bag of spanners. To rectify during the first ride I had to shift down then “half shift” back up to stop the noise. I’m sure the issues can be rectified with some (hopefully) simple tweaks however, I expected better and its a shame the issue took the shine off my first ride experience.
This was my first foray into the world of expensive carbon frames, having started out with a less expensive Al frame to work out if I even enjoyed cycling... what a difference. Stiffer, lighter, faster. Love the bike and can’t wait to rack up many more miles on it.
