For the price, I don't think you could do better! Fork angle is sharp enough to corner, whilst not feeling overly twitchy. Frame (and I'm sure the carbon helps) absorbs a reasonable amount of jitter when riding over bumps or cobbles. Challenge griffo tyres are pretty decent too. I'm going convert to tubeless though just to reduce the pressure even more for the muddy, slippy Scottish winter!
I recently bought the CX5 with SRAM x1 chainset, and disk brakes. I could not be happier with this bike. This was the second Ribble bike I have purchased. The first was the Audax winter bike for my commute to work that I bought a few years back and I was looking for a replacement. Ordering was simple, and the communication with Ribble was fast and very helpful. Bike arrived beautifully packed and no problems getting it on the road. When considering the specifications of this bike and quality of the frame, it would be hard to find a more competitively priced set of wheels.
