    Good choice. I just bought one and kitted it out with Full Ultegra, Racing 3's and Richey WCS finishing kit. Excellent VFM and rides well too.

    Lose the saddlebag though and remove the horrible warning stickers from the rims :wink:

    Oh and splash out on some nicer bottle cages - they do it no favours at all :D

    I know 'fashion' says no saddle bag, but if I didnt have it I would always forget to pocket something, and it would always be the thing I needed :)

    Bottle cages look bad I know, but they've just been taken off my old bike and they do the job so will replace them as and when. Not interested in shaving grams off with carbon bottle cages though.

    Really happy with it so far..

    What ! :?: !

    Is this true? So I've been riding around with a saddle bag and your telling me it's not fashionable? What am I going to do now?

    Another nice looking steed from the 'Ribble' stable, totally concur with comments about the saddle bag tho, you can actually get smaller ones if bags are your 'thing' no need for them to be that big - unless you are carrying a spare pair of shoes and a winter jacket?

    Nowt wrong with saddle bags at all, though I prefer much smaller ones. But you take the saddle bag off for the pictures :)

    You could get some specialized ribcage bottle cages for a few quid that'd match your red/black colour scheme.
    More problems but still living....
