    Serious eye candy. Very nice looking machine and considered colour coding.

    The bike looks lovely, dont know a great deal about Ridley but I like what I see. How does it handle

    Thanx for comments, bike handles great, kicks in when asked to respond and is a dream for climbing. Stiff front end ensures it goes where you direct it with a very comfortable ride, altho it screams to be ridden aggressively at times.
    Well chuffed with it :D

    Ive been looking at the wilier Izoard or the cheaper option of going down the Planet X route. Did yours come with that spec or has it been pimped by you?

    I chose the mavics as opposed to the fulcrum racing 5s that were standard, i also provided my own saddle and pedals, cost a tadge under £2300 which i was pleased with.
    The shop pimped one up for me to look at, with white DT Swiss mon chasserals, a red ultegra chain, red look pedals and a red fizik saddle, looked good, but a bit too much bling for my liking and at £2500 was a bit over my budget.

    sounds like you had a cracking deal. Going to find my local stockist and have a look at it. Ive basically got 2.5k and torn between so many bikes :?:
