Product Description

Ridgeback Speed Women's 2017

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

  • Lightweight 6061 aluminium step-through 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 Women's is part of Ridgeback's Metro line of commuter / hybrid bikes.

'Ridgeback's Metro Overview
Built for commuting, a Ridgeback Metro offers the perfect combination of speed, comfort and practicality.

Adaptable and stylish with the durability needed for everyday use. A short test ride of one of these benchmark commuter hybrids will confirm why so many people choose a bike from this popular category.

With the strength of a mountain bike, road geometry and smooth rolling 700c wheels, the Metro's sleek aluminium frame is built using size specific tubing to provide a responsive yet resilient ride.

Reliability is essential when a bike is used for daily transport. A full Shimano drivetrain ensures accurate and consistent shifting over time. Mudguard and rack fittings are standard on all Metro models.

With wide ratio gearing, ergonomic triple density grips and a comfortable saddle, a Ridgeback Metro is commute ready as well as being a practical and fun way to get around town.'
