    I was looking at that frame the other day. I don’t know which Taiwan company Ribble have sourced it from but it’s exactly the same (with a respray) as the Pedal Force RS2 which sells for $800

    http://pedalforce.com/online/product_info.php?products_id=8420&osCsid=5ad6d712bfc49792a6d3dac9fae7e7f8

    I really can’t believe that Ribble are doing this frame for the price they are and £1,000 for a Centaur equipped bike is an incredible buy IMHO.

    I don’t think the geometry is that relaxed. I think it would be a good, fast road machine. If I had #1,000 to spend on a bike it woulld be a very, very serious contender.

    Bike parts and bikes are going to go up in price when current UK stocks run out so I’d buy now.

    No, I don’t think you should keep it in mind. Procrastination is the thief of time.

    Yes, if it’s the same frame as the Pedalforce RS2 (which I’m 99.999 per cent certain it is) then I’d say it’s infinitely better than the Nero Corsa. But I won’t be buying one and I won’t be riding one so it doesn’t really matter which one I prefer does it?

    It is the same frame. Definitely. Absolutely. No question. Without a doubt. For sure. Without question. The Fondriest is also the same.

    I’ve never seen a bad review for the frame but it does make you wonder why it is so cheap. If Ribble can sell a bike for £1,000 with a £500 groupset on it and a decent set of wheels, how much did the frame cost them?

    That said, for £1,000 it seems like a good buy.
