Ridgeback Comet '03

Ridgeback Comet '03

Lightweight aluminium-framed hybrid

No Longer Available

Product Description

Upgrades from Ridgeback Speed

Substituting an aluminium frame for the Ridgeback Speed’s steel knocks 2lb off the weight of the Comet. A lighter weight frame is always going to be more of a pleasure to ride - especially uphill when gravity takes its toll.

  • Altus/C50 gears are a step up the Shimano hierarchy from the Ridgeback Speed’s all-Tourney transmission.
  • Eyelets and clearance for fitting racks and full-length mudguards.
