Ridgeback Auto '06

Ridgeback Auto '06

Named after its unique automatic transmission

No Longer Available

Product Description

The Ridgeback Auto is named after its unique automatic transmission - Shimano Nexus Auto-D. The chainguard-mounted CPU unit senses how fast you are pedalling and automatically changes gear accordingly. A dial on the CPU allows you to set it up or adjust it to suit your riding style - low rev or fast-spinning. The Ridgeback Auto is thus an intelligent choice for a new or returnee cyclist, nervous about getting the hang of multi-gear controls - e.g. my dad.

On the same principle, the aluminium open unisex frame makes it a doddle to step on and off, and the Continental Contact 700 x 37 tyres are as famed for their cushioning and sure grip as they are for their puncture resistance.
