DURABILITY &
COMFORT

The CGR 725 has been hand crafted using classic triple butted Reynolds 725 tubing to produce a frame with the compliant and vibration absorbing ride quality that only a high-quality steel frame can offer.

Whilst the tubing and the look of the frame may lend itself to the traditional the geometry, tube profiles and design detail is definitely contemporary, with all the CGR attributes in place to enable this frameset to be built into the stylish and versatile bike to effortlessly cover the miles and terrain.

RIDE

With a hand crafted Reynolds 725 frame with traditional looks combined with contemporary geometry and features the CGR 725’s specification can be dialled specifically for Road, Off-road, Commuting or all 3 if you want one bike capable of excelling at all 3.

Select a high-end road groupset, lightweight wheelset and race bike finishing kit and you have an Endurance road bike capable of mixing it with thoroughbred race bikes over the highest mountain passes and epic road endurance events with panache.

If your passion is for getting out into the wilderness and distant trails the CGR 725’s compatibility with up to 650x47c tyres, disc brakes and a geometry designed to offer stability and control will build you a bike capable of handling the roughest terrain and self-supported ultra-endurance adventures.

With full mudguard compatibility, rear rack mounts, endurance geometry and a multitude of drivetrain specification options the CGR 725 also builds into the ideal commuter bike with the durability, efficiency and comfort required to get you to and from work in all seasons.

Alternatively, mix elements of all three and build the bike that is truly customised to meet the requirements of your own adventure. The CGR 725 re-defines what you believed was possible from one bike!

I'm now a definite convert to the 'steel is real' club. The bike rides brilliantly, it has a lovely feel to it, stiff but springy, the big tyres help with the ride quality but even with some different wheels with smaller tyres it still has a brilliantly supple feel.
I'm about 6'2" and went for a large, even though on the sizing I'm probably an Xl, I'm glad I went with the smaller size, it let's me get a lower position at the front so it feels more like my road bike, yet I can still get upright enough when off the tarmac.

The finishing quality is very high, the welds are really neat and all of the kit feels quality, in particular the handlebar, which has an aero shaped top that I wasn't expecting but provides a great place to grip when climbing.

I considered quite a few bikes when purchasing and I'm really glad I chose the CGR

My CGR 725 arrived just the other day and I was like a kid on Christmas! I was very impressed with the care taken to wrap the bike and components. I was surprised at how light the bike felt, even when fully boxed - much lighter than my 30-year-old Bianchi steel frame. :) I finally had the chance to ride yesterday and the bike felt great - very comfy, sturdy, and precise,rolling over Seattle's crumbling and torn-up streets. The gears clicked through without a hitch and the hydraulic brakes gave me confidence riding down slick, steep hills. The bike is a great value considering the build quality and component set compared to the relatively generic, overpriced bikes at many bike shops.

The bike took 5 weeks to arrive from the day I ordered, not bad considering. The only thing I'd recommend differently is to skip ordering the fenders if you're having the bike shipped any great distance. They're a little more plastic-y than I pictured and got bent up and twisted a bit in transit. I was able to straighten them out for the most part and they function fine, and of course have no affect on the performance of the bike. I'll probably look to upgrade to aluminum fenders at some point in the near future.

Overall I'm extremely happy with the bike and with Ribble, and strongly recommend looking into them for your next bike purchase!
