Product Details

Ridgeback Speed 2018 Hybrid Bike

Sprightly intelligently-spec'd commuter hybrid bike ready equipped with mudguards and rack to make it fit for longer trips.

  • Lightweight 6061 aluminium frame and rigid steel fork (much lighter than a suspension fork)
  • Shimano Tourney shifters, chainset and Altus rear mech EZ Fire their way through the 3x7 gears.
  • With its 48/38/28 Shimano chainset and 12-32 Shimano cassette, the Ridgeback Speed is higher geared than an MTB transmission with a 42 or 44t big ring, thus enabling an extra burst of speed, whilst retaining a nice easy low gear for hill climbing.
  • The 700 x 35c tyres are smooth-rolling on tarmac and forgiving on dirt roads.
  • Reliable Promax alloy V-brakes on alloy wheel rims.
  • Its 36 spokes and Shimano cassette rear hub makes the alloy rear wheel stronger than one built with fewer spokes and fitted with a screw-on freewheel.

The Ridgeback Speed is part of Ridgeback's Metro line of commuter / hybrid bikes.
