Wouldn't it just be easier to purchase a bike in America, preferably in Philadelphia? The bike won't be damaged in transit, or at least it won't be when you pick it up. You might be even able to test drive the model before you buy. If I had to chose a bike that was ordered and I lived in the US, I would chose Canyon over Ribble. They have a 30 day trial period which you won't get with the Ribble. The other thing that you might want to consider is if you ever are in the habit of reselling your old bikes is the Ribble will be a harder sell than a brand that can be easily had in the US. Not knocking the Ribble bike because I have never head or read anything bad about the bike, I am thinking more about logistics than anything else.
