Ribble ? GTG ?

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 ? GTG ?

Gone to pull the trigger on a new groupset later in the week (105) , I've heard them recommended here , just making sure no one has had any negative experiences prior to sending hard earned cash into cyberspace.
Thanks for any input

I've had no trouble with Ribble.

Nice pun there; VeloGlock pulling the trigger.

You should do it sooner than later so you don't miss the sale. They currently have 25% off the individual components so if you piece together the groupset yourself it will be cheaper than the 5% off a group that they are also offering.

Ordered my 105 from there. They actually managed to send me a BB with both an Eng and an italian threaded side.
Should have seen my face when I tried to install it.
But they sent me a free english one and let me keep the mismatched BB.

So it's not really a problem just a slight annoyance but I had plenty of time.

Oh and they piece the whole groupo and place in different plastic bags to save room and reduce shipping cost. But it's done well so there shouldn't be a problem normally.

I just bought a Campy group that I pieced together individually to take advantage of the 25% off. Everything was in the actual boxes except the cassette. And shipping was free.

Agreed no trouble at all with Ribble and even fast delivery from UK. Suggest using Pay Pal for extra protection.

I bought a group from them a couple weeks ago during their January sale. It only took 5 days to get to me, which was pretty cool, but unnecessary, as I won't be building anything for a few months at least.

All that is to say, I've had good experience with them when I've used them.

I get stuff from Ribble all the time. Shipping comes Royal Air Mail, takes 3 or 4 days longer than if you had bought it here, but no issues at all with product or services. I've even had to return some stuff with no issues.
