The CustomColour Configurator
This handy tool offers almost unlimited customisation to help you design your dream Ribble bike. Each time you select an option the image will change to reflect your current selections. Plus, you can also download an image of your completed masterpiece to show off to friends and family too!
Step 1. Paint Finish
The cost of a Gloss or Metallic finish is £299. Gloss paint adds a lovely sheen that reflects light. Metallic paint is essentially a normal solid paint with powdered metal added to better reflect the light for a more vivid shine and more colour depth.
Give your new bike a lovely matt look with a Matt finish colour scheme that costs an additional £50 on top of the standard £299 CustomColour cost, for a total upgrade price of £349.
The final option is the glitter colourway (see image above) and costs an additional £200 on top of the CustomColour upgrade price of £299 (£499 total). This finish looks sensational as it positively sparkles in direct sunlight.
Step 2. Frame Colour
Select the main colour of the frame and forks. You can opt for a single solid colour throughout or a 2 colour fade (gradient, more on gradient below).
Step 3. Decal Colour
Choose the colour of your downtube decals, there are 16 in total to choose from!
Step 4. Gradient
Feeling adventurous? Why not opt for a Gradient finish which offers you the option to select 2 colours and have them gradually fade into each other for a stunning two-tone finish.
Step 5. Gradient Angle
The standard gradient option has 1 solid colour at the top which gradually fades vertically into a second colour. There are also 45°, 90° and 135° options available which change the angle of where on the frame the fade occurs.
Step 6. Accents
The accents are the transfers mounted on the seat tube and forks. There will normally be 3 or 4 accents, dependant upon the frame. The colour of each accent can be independently selected so they can even all be different colours! Or, if you prefer you can choose to have no accents at all (see image below).
Step 7. Colour match cockpit
The final option for that final touch of bling is to add some colour to the cockpit (handlebar/stem). If the bike is fitted with the LEVEL 5 integrated handlebars system then the entire handlebars and stem will be painted. They will be painted to match whichever colour you have specified for the frames headtube area. If you would like to specify a different colour please get in touch and we will work with your to ensure you get your preferred colour choice.
It is worth noting that if the bike is fitted with a traditional handlebar and stem only the stem is painted.
