Very pleased with my bike and delighted with quality of ride. I did need to adjust the gears and hydraulic brake settings after the first couple of rides but largely expected this as a requirement for any new bike as it settles in. I do wonder how less mechanically able customers would cope though. The bike was delivered a little late but arrived in perfect condition and it was very easy to complete the build.
All in all very satisfied and happy to recommend Ribble.
Duane Lusted
All in all a great bike!
As I wanted to do a mixture of things on the CGR (what it's built for) I opted for the GRX 400 2x Groupset and the 11-34 cassette which currently has gotten me up every hill around here in North Wales (many 15%+ gradients).

Also, opted for the Mavic Allround wheels to go with the Schwable Allround TLE tyres. Going tubeless with these were super easy, even made the tyres pop on the rim with only a track pump.

The bike looks and feels great! I can keep up with the group on Roadies perfectly fine, and even them are in awe with the colour (I went for the Orange/Sky Blue). Even had many passers-by comment on the colour.

The only downside(s) for me where the timescale to get the bike. Ordered 5th June and got it 28th Aug. Granted I did order during the outbreak and everyone wanting a bike.
The next one was the sent the wrong saddle, but sorted out straight away with a replacement.
