    AND always helpful when you have a query
  • I made an order of over £140 worth of various bits and bobs from them last month late on a Sunday evening and it all arrived neatly boxed up first thing on the Tuesday morning. 8)

    I've always found them good for business.

    I've ordered stuff from Oz and its always arrived here as expected within 7 days of placing the order. I didn't have any issues with them either when I was in the UK. Top marks from me!!!

    Ribble used to have a poor record, maybe 3 or 4 years ago, but I gather they have raised their game considerably, and from the majority of what I have read on sites such as this, no longer deserve the bad rep, only a couple of experiences with okay purchases myself, could have been slightly faster but that is a trade off against the particularly good prices I got.

    They've been spot with all four orders I've placed with them.

    I bought their winter bike a couple of years ago. All the bits turned up on the same day but with two front wheels and no rear. Phoned them at 09:30 and at 14:00 there was a courier at the door with the back wheel ready to take the extra front away.

    No problems here either.

    Pity they've changed their website - I thought the old one was much better.

    I've been getting stuff from them for about 6 years now & never a problem; tho a couple of my friends have had a bad experience with them. I do like the layout of the new website...

    Yeah no probs. They've upgraded their website which helps as well.

    Hmmm - I just thought that the "groupsets" section of the website wasn't working, as it just says "loading" and never loads (using Mozilla Firefox). However, using Internet Explorer, it loads fine.

    Can anyone point toward what Mozilla plugin I'm missing? The Ribble site doesn't advise. :?

    no problems as such - they were just really (really!!) slow compared to CRC/wiggle/(stif/rutland/ebay...etc)

    Don't have any problems with them, either going straight down the road into the shop, or ordering from the website and collecting from the warehouse. The stock control is now up to scratch; new systems and the jailing of a thieving little censored who previously worked in the warehouse have done the trick.
