I took ownership of my Ribble R872 on the 14/05/21 and did my 1st ride on the following Sunday. A nice steady 25 miles to get the feel of it after I had set it up. WOW !! What a smooth ride, brilliant isn't the word. The gears are smooth, the brakes responsive a very comfortable ride positioning. The miles flew by. I'm just back from a 34 mile ride and did some hills on this trip. The gear changing was smooth and effortless and the carbon frame made the climb that all a bit easier. No issues so far, the bike is everything I'd imagined as more. I got a phone call from Connor last week asking me how things had been, so your after care is fantastic. If you're looking to but a bike, buy a Ribble Bike, you won't be disappointed !!
I honestly thought that as a 56 year old strictly amateur cyclist that my old hybrid mountain/road/go anywhere bike was just fine......until I got my Ribble, turns out I was riding what was akin to a lawnmower.
My R872 Sport is without doubt the most fun I have had on a bike since I gave a "Crossie" to a pretty girl in 1978 to get home from the cinema.
I go up hills so easily I honestly wondered if I had bought an e-bike by mistake.
Order and delivery was within 3 days! 'Nuff said. To say I am delighted with my purchase would be the understatement of the year.
