I respond to all who ask me in private many personal considerations on bikes that I text, unfortunately you are in many (thanks!) and I can not answer at all. Fortunately, you do all the same questions .... To which I answer gladly:

I would buy this bike and why?

No, too heavy

Defects? basically none

What would you change? the saddle

What upgrades would you do? no one

Is it a bike suits for Gran Fondo? Yes, if you do not hurry to finish it

Is it a bike suitable for climbing? Not so much as the weight

Is Its performance competitive? not very

What alternatives are there to this model? Alternatives are always endless, here a list of some direct competitors:

Bianchi Infinito CV Disc

Cannondale Synapse Disc

Specialized Roubaix Disc

What is the main advantage of Ridley than direct competitors? The build quality of the frame

I want the bike with the best price/performance ratio, is Ridley okay? Usually have good prices in relation to the quality of the frame

 

 

Among the new by Ridley for 2015 there is a new cyclocross bike with 26-inch wheels, designed for children and people of small stature; the frame is aluminum, crankset 46/34 and sprocket 13/26.
