RIDING & RACING
For those riders who prefer more time in the saddle and are perhaps less mechanically inclined the Endurance SL R Series Ultegra Di2 certainly ticks the box when it comes to performance, lightweight and responsivity.
To assist you in selecting the correct size simply find you height below. The graphic below illustrates our recommendations so you can be confident that the size you order will be correct.
I went for my first ride on my new Ribble Endurance SL R today. A short 15 miler to check out the seat post height and seat position. After the ride I made a couple minor adjustments. It rides like a dream. The Ultegra Di2 shifting is super smooth and quick. I was very happy with the ordering process and the communication from Ribble letting me know how the order and the build were progressing. I had a couple of minor issues. I ordered an outfront computer mount for the Level 5 Integrated bars, and the bolts that came with the bars were a little to short. I couldn't get them to catch the threads under the bars once I tried to attach the mount. No big issue. I just went to the local Home Depot and bought some longer bolts for less than a dollar. The other issue wasn't with Ribble directly, but with the shipping company, Parcel Force. Once the bike arrived in the US, I could no longer track it. It was delivered about 6 days after it arrived in the US, but during that time, I had no idea where it was, or if it was held up in customs. Again, a small issue, but something US customers should be aware of. I would recommend Ribble to anyone who wants a great bike at a great price.
I collected my SL-R from the Bluewater store on Wednesday, exactly 49 days from the bike order, which was as expected, given I had ordered custom paint, which was well worth the extra wait and expense.
The bike is excellent and I’m very pleased.
The Di2 is fantastic and an excellent upgrade. The only criticism would be not having the Bluetooth capability to link my Garmin and phone to the Di2 as standard. I had to purchase an additional item (SM-EWWU111) and cable at a cost of £70. While I acknowledge this wasn’t in the list of components sent to me when I purchased the bike, I wouldn’t have known it was required given I had no previous experience of Di2. I also wasted time trying to pair the devices which wasn’t possible. Lucky I phoned the store for advice and all became apparent. I would recommend in future Ribble make it clear to customers the extra item is required to use Bluetooth.
I had used the in store bike fitting rig to check my size as I’m 6’1” and between large and extra large frame size. I went for extra large and it is perfect. The bike is fast, lightweight, comfortable and smooth. Looking forward to a third longer ride tomorrow!
I went for the basic wheel option as this will be my first upgrade in the near future.
Finally thank you to Ribble. The communication throughout was excellent, especially the consultation with Jason who painted my bespoke coloured bike.
