The Ridgeback 2014Long distance tourer, rugged commuter or just for day rides, a Ridgeback World series bike offers a cycling experience steeped in history but with the benefit of contemporary technology. Built to exacting specifications, frames are constructed to a size specific geometry in a wide range of seat tube lengths to ensure stability and sure handling, even when fully loaded. Hand welded using Reynolds steel tubing or 6061 aluminium; a World series Ridgeback provides a responsive, comfortable ride with the structural reliability essential for a traditional expedition bike. Designed for long periods in the saddle in remote locations, World series bikes are sensibly specified. A square taper bottom bracket allows replacement with a simple readily available cup and axle unit, whilst brazed down tube cable stops mean traditional gear levers can be used if required. All models are supplied with a sturdy four point aluminium rack and all but the Tour are fitted with a frame fit pump.
