    Help, please. Does anyone have experience of Ribble? Have you built a bike online? Are they worth the money? Good service?

    Are they UK based?

    Looks like just another Asian-made 7005 aluminium frame, so they'd be no worse than all the other affordable stuff out there, and, as with most of them, it looks like reasonable bang for buck. The price for the "Ribble 7005/Tiagra 9 Race Double" looks ok, considering it has:

    - Mavic Aksium Black Wheelset
    - Limited Edition Dedacciai Black Force all Carbon (blades/steerer) forks
    - CSN Carbon SE seat pillar
    - Selle Italia Trimatic 2 Saddle
    - Italmanubri Road Racing Stem and Super 330 Bars

    Have been using their frames for years, all without problems. Service can be a bit slow at times, but as they are cheap it almost makes up for it. You just don't need to be in a hurry.

    Thanks - to 531Aussie also. I would know the components to pick, but was curious about the service in particular. I'd like to buy locally, but none of the LBS can come close in price, so it's Ribble.
