Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Ribble CGR Ti. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

16 reasons to buy

  • The Ribble CGR Ti has a lightweight and durable titanium frame. Titanium is much lighter than steel, more compliant than aluminum and does not rust.
  • The frame's tubing is shaped to improve compliance and maintain stiffness.
  • The threaded bottom bracket is easy to maintain and does not develop a creak as easily as press fit bottom brackets.
  • The bike is light. Models weigh between 20.72 and 23.40 pounds.
  • The Schwalbe G-One Allroad tires are capable on and off road. They can tackle most dry conditions including loose gravel and dirt tracks extremely well.

  • The bike comes with a path for internal routing set up for a dynamo hub.

2 reasons not to buy

Ribble CGR Ti Sport Review

The Ribble CGR Ti Sport, however, hearkens to another cycling tradition altogether: that of the long and leisurely ride that’s taken at a slower pace and takes you to places you’ve not been before.
