I havent had this bike very long (received it on Christmas eve 2020) and I have only ever ridden it for leisure purposes, which, in comparison to a lot cyclists/outdoor sporty folk out there, is very little. It is in a very good condition albeit a few marks of wear and tear here and there! It handles beautifully, its comfortable (flared handlebars are a godsend), the 1x gearing is simple and surprisingly provides enough gear range for most road riders and mountain bike riders alike, the carbon seat post really dampens a lot of the vibrations and adds to the comfort, the Shimano GRX 600 group set is flawless throughout its gear and braking systems and the WTB tyres on 650b Mavic Aksium wheels provide loads of grip off road whilst maintaining speed on flats.
As mentioned before, there are a few marks of wear and tear. Very small tear on handlebar tape (right side) - does not affect the tapes functionality. Very minor wearing down of orange paint on top tube (where my top tube bag sat) - I will include touch up paint kit supplied by Ribble for going over this bit. Very minor scuff marks to brake levers as well as crank arm ends due to them hitting rocks off road. One very minor puncture from a thorn on front inner tube - I repaired with premium Park Tool patching kit.I will be including two Ribble brand plastic bottle cages in blue - these have a tiny cracks around the bolt-thru holes but again do not affect functionality, though as expected, they may not live forever! The carbon fibre seatpost was an upgrade as well as the tyres, the regular CGR AL Gravel does not include these. I waited around 3-4 months to receive mine from putting an order in and now i think it is more like 6 months! So grab yourself a bargain :.
