Yes, Ridgeback do tend to keep the spec across a bike reasonably even. It's one of the reasons I stock them! Check out the Velocity.

Yes, thanks, I have had a look at the spec: for comparison.

Purely as an aside, I saw this elsewhere:-
"I'm currently riding a specialised roubaix which is just over a year old . I do on average 150-180 miles a week pleasure riding, It now needs a new head set , bottom bracket, jockey wheels , front spindle and has just recently a new rear cassette.( I can just get away with the chain set but it will need changing before xmas ) Is this about right ?.it is used all weathers but is cleaned and dried apppropriately. I appreciate that nothing lasts forever but I'm a little suprised at the amount of major components that need changing "

That is a recommended make & remembering that total mileage is circa 8000,
would you say that is roughly what is to be expected in a similar price range?

Should that be the case, what could be expected from a machine retailing at half that price?
