Ribble Winter Audax bike- any good?
You can just squeeze 25mm tyres in with guards, but it is tight. No idea why they haven’t stepped it up to 25mm. They used to make a sloping toptube audax frame (mine was black) with better clearance
Other than that, great value frames – used to come up a little larger than many people expected on sizing.Posted 4 years agoredddraggonMember
I used one for light touring type stuff for about 3 or 4 years, yes the clearances are tight, but I never had any issues with comfort.
It’s a real shame it didn’t take anything bigger than 23mm (I tried) but the only reason I got rid of it was because of a crash which bent the rear triangle.Posted 4 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
teeto – is that the sloping top tube frame like I had? Was better than the blue one, wider tyres improved comfort no end.
Sold it to a bloke in Cambridge who had it nicked just after 🙁
And have a look at the Giant Defy think they have special guards designed to squeeze in the framePosted 4 years ago
I also spotted this last night:
Can spec’ it with 25mm tyres.
I’ll mail PX and see what its like with guards.Posted 4 years ago
