Looks amazing! The custom paint job is stunning and frame geometry nice and different.
First ride though didn’t exactly blow me away. The front mech wasn’t set right so chain rubbed in the big ring. And the rear brake disc rubbing on the pads.
Also the 11-25 cassette is a tough grind for gravel hills. Would be much more suited to 11-28 or even a 32.
I’m pretty sure though once I’ve made the adjustments it’ll be a sweet ride.
And looking forward to putting on some Hunt aero wheels for the Roubaix sportive in April.
I ended up paying £40 shipping plus £35 for Evans to assemble it (newbie I know) so you have to take this into account BUT despite this extra cost I can't recommend Ribble enough. I got the Endurance AL for my London commute and it's transformed my ride/life. With the effortless gear shifts, super comfortable handbar grip and sturdy yet light-weight structure, I couldn't be happier.
