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.
It's true brand wise, Ribble is a bit of an unknow quantity over the pond.
