Ribble R872 / Planet X RT58 / trek 4.5 2013 model

Advice please... Which one shall I get ?

Im looking to do a bit of racing next year as well as some sportive's with a 3 day challenge already booked in.

all fit around the £1500 price range, all come with ultegra ?

views / experiences would be glady appreciated.

    I have the R872 and my lad has the RT58 and I will always go for the Ribble. Much more comfortable, more responsive and stiffer to climb with.

    Great. Thanks for the advice
  • I'm considering the R872 and RT58, along with a 2013 Vitus Vitesse Ultegra from Chain Reaction.

    Bookwyse, any discernable difference in build quality and reliability between the two bikes?

    Just had a look at the vitesse, The bike radar review talks about too much flex in the BB. Got to say looks a decent specced bike especially at just over £1200.

    Sorry the review was Road CC... the bike radar again is a slightly different review and talks about the noise and vibration through the bike
