Great bike for the price
Great bike but on first ride there was loud cable rattle. Had to get that fixed but once done a great ride. Frame and specs are great for the price and it’s fun and comfortable.

Great "Deal of the Week" to get a full carbon frame and the bike builder allows you to build to your spec. Great service from Ribble, the bike is light and quick, yet comfortable.

Excellent bike for the price
This was a great purchase. The bike is light and handles well. The bike came boxed and the instructions were clear. Help was quick by email too. Great service and I am very happy with the bike.

Great frame and components at a very competitive price.
I've only had this bike for a few days, and have used it twice, but it is easy to notice the differences. The bike looks good, the frame has a firm feel, the gears are slick and overall it responds quickly when accelerating. I am very pleased with the purchase.
We are fitting black Shimano 105 to this Special Edition.
Hi what is the weight of this bike (med farme size)
Thanks for your query.
The bicycle weighs approximately 8.6kg.
does this bike come built as never bought online
Yes they do come built but packaged in a box for transportation.
Once out of the box you would need to remove the packaging but the only assembly required is to put the front wheel in and adjust the handlebars. We have a video showing you what is required (and are preparing a leaflet)...
