Ribble 531 Competition

This Retro Ribble is made from Reynolds 531 competition tube set.  The 531 competition uses thinner double butted main tubes, and this tube set was reserved for use on high end TT, race and cyclo cross bikes.   The owner of the Ribble loved the bike and the classic design but wanted it to be more everyday useable.  Our team stripped it down and sent it of for media blasting and a fresh paint job with new decals. Because we wanted to bring it into the 21st century we installed new shimano index gears and hand built wheels.  You get a great bike with a mix of retro and modern and a ride quality all of its own.
