It's official, the Moots has taken over. So along with my Allez this also has to go. Was saving it for a rainy day but I don't think I'll need it..
Dibs and PM please.

Ribble road frame and forks
Columbus SLX tubing throughout. Makes for a very lightweight frame considering its size.
TT ctc 57cm
ST ctc 57cm
1" threaded forks
Rare Cinelli BB shell spoiler
Internal rear brake routing
Pump and chain nipples
All threads are spot on
Paint on frame isn't amazing but will survive a good bit longer but unfortunately quite a bit of paint loss on the forks. I've taken off the flaky bits for transparency and to assess the forks but all looks to be superficial with no deep rust nor pitting. Forks will need at least a laquer seal if not a complete respray. I was goign to get the whole bike stripped and resprayed but I'll leave that to the new owner.
No deep rust; no dents; no cracks; no bends etc
Basically a solid and unique frame that would benefit from a paintjob to get it to its former glory but can be ridden as is.
I bought the frame due to the builder and also the fact it was built from SLX and has this Cinelli spoiler. It's got loads of potential and will no doubt be an amazing ride once sorted out.
Oh it also has two Campagnolo decals and apprently came with a Victory groupset the original owner said so maybe it was a limited/special edition? It would probably make sense as I've never seen SLX and Cinelli BB's used on a RIbble before.

Always wanna see pics but they’re never here ;-)
I’ve just build a Ribble with what you have described
Oh nice, any more info on it please? Would be interesting to know a bit more.
Aye pictures coming, let me escape the clutches of work ;)
I can do some pics I bought the frame a while back the previous owner had sprayed it Matt black unfortunately don’t know much about it but love riding it, it feels much better to ride than I was expecting , I’ll get some pics later this evening and Glws
Hi here a pic of the bike finished
Nice man, thanks for posting. Looks like a good build and glad it rides well too. Dont think you can go far wrong with SLX tubing! Hopefully I'll post some pics this weekend if I get some time. Moots is soaking up all the resources ;)! Cheers again. T
side note - what bottle cages are those?
There elite (customrace)
Some pics :)!
Any idea who made these for Ribble? Thanks
In all honesty not a clue but basically they’re the same construction as Cinelli Supercorsa road frames from that era. Bar the Cinelli stamps on the lugs and dropouts there’s not much of a difference. Bar price ;) T
Price drop bump
Final price drop bump. T
i'd be interested to know about tyre clerance at its smallest
whats the frame size?
Says in the description above 57 👍
So I popped a rear wheel in and the narrowest point would be 32mm where the yre sits. That's it into the dropouts enough so it safely bolts in etc. Ask away if there's anything else.
@Afroholik as skinnywheels says, all measures are in the description but happy to provide any others you'd like.
so in your opinion it could take a tyre that measure up to 30mm laterally, but no more ?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
