Ribble - legit site? + Looking for new bib need suggestion

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ribble - legit site? + Looking for new bib need suggestion

Hello,

I just found this bib:
Giordana Classic Silverline Bib Shorts, Giordana, Giordana BIB SHORTS

Some one over here suggested this bib. My waist is 31 and I am 177 cm tall & weight 65-66 kg. I guess the medium size might be too small but the price is pretty good. I wonder if this site is legit. It seems like. Prices are quite good. I might end up paying some import fees but over here the bibs are like twice the price every where.

If you guys have any suggestion for new bib, tell me which one you would get. My current one are no brand ebay and are not very comfortable after 50km.

Ribble is legit, I don't have those bibs so I can't speak on them. At that price it's worth a try. If they are not great you will atleast have an inexpensive pair for short rides.

Ribble is legit, I have a pair of Giordana Laser and one of Giordana Exo System and totally love their bibs. I don't know about the silverline though.

I'm 5.7, 130 lbs and Small fits perfectly.

Not only are they legit, they are one of the only ones from the UK that won't hit you with hidden fees through their shipping partners. If you are going to order from the UK, order from Ribble and stay away from the others. Just my point-02.

Never had a hidden fee from Probikekit. Ordered tires several times.

Ribble FTW! Add a 4600 group for your rain bike, a new 6800 crankset, and...

Go for it. No problems with past Ribble orders-my next stop if I'm not in a hurry and/or can't find a part for a reasonable cost from a US vendor.
