If racing is your thing, then the Ribble R872 is the bike for you. It gets a high modulus T800 carbon fibre frame and fork with maximum stiffness a key design priority. Details like the oversized and reinforced chainstays, a tapered head tube and enlarged bottom bracket area, housing a BB30, all point towards a bike built to be responsive and fast.
Full carbon Ribble R872 road bike with full Shimano Ultegra set including brakes + gears (22 speed), FSA cranks and carbon fibre wheels (80mm deep section), swisstop pads, carbon fibre handlebars and Deda stem. This bike looks absolutely stunning – the pictures don’t do it justice!
Purchased from Ribble in 2016, mostly used in dry weather and always kept clean, oiled and lubricated. There is signs of ‘rust’ on the chain and cassette from storage last winter. This is a L frame, it only measures 54.5cm according to Ribble, but don’t be put off – different manufacturers size their bikes very differently! The Ribble sizing guide recommends this frame size for anyone 5’10” to 6’1”.
The bike is in good condition and is running as expected. Gears and brakes are functioning, bearings work well and the wheels run true. Has recently had new bar tape fitted.
Please note that the carbon wheels are not real Zipps! They are carbon fibre but have been rebranded with Zipp stickers.
Current Price: £1600.00
