Im new to road biking and have been looking for a bike, ive stumbled across some good reviews of the Ribble Nero Corsa and they seem to be very good bikes. But I just wanted to here any more reviews, or alternatives in the same price range?

I want something that is reliable and light.

Also although im new to road, Im not a complete novice when it comes to cycling. I have been riding other cycling disiplines for years.

    Also search on £1000 bikes. Loads of similar posts.
  • The ribble is a fantastic bike and now they have a similar one to tempt you with, the Ribelle. However there is a £200 jump from the Nero Corsa. They both look fantastic by the way as I've seen them both built up and they are really nice looking bikes.
  • Im 6'3 also, Im thinking of going for the 59cm, but what do you all think?

    Here's my Nero Corsa, didn't get it from Ribble though.

    There's nothing wrong with the bike, don't let anyone tell you "it's a comfortable bike" though - comfort is all down to tyres/pressure/handlebars - as I found to my horror when I swapped some flexy wide bars for some narrow stiff bars - painful road buzz........
    I like bikes...
