Well the competition is closed, you all had your opportunity to enter, but as the greatest living Scottish/Spanish nobleman once said, "In the end, there can be only one."
And the winner is David McPhail.
Congratulations David and you'll be hearing from Ribble soon.
For the other thousands of you, well there'll be another competition coming soon.
This is probably one of the neatest competitions we've ever run, and it's all down to our friends oop north, Ribble Cycles, who are giving one lucky reader the opportunity of a lifetime.
The winner will have £1000 to spend on building your own Gran Fondo bike.
So how does that work then?
Well you already get a complete bike for £859.95 with the following spec:
Shimano Sora 3500 9 speed groupset
Rodi pr Wheels Airline 5 clinchers
Yaw nitro rigid tyres
Plus saddle etc
I'm sure you'll agree that's a pretty reasonable spec already ?
So now all you have to do is decide what you want to upgrade.
Fancy upgrading to Shimano 105? Well you can do that and still come in under the £1000.
Or if upgrading the wheels are more your style, then how about swapping in some Mavic Aksium Elite 25s then, no problem, you can do that.
Maybe you decide you want a smarter saddle then there's plenty of choices, but you could do worse than selecting a Selle Italia Flite Kit Carbionio Flow Saddle and still come in under your £1000. There are all sorts of options, not just the ones I've highlighted, just check them out at http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/ribble-gran-fondo/
So the choice is yours and I'd say that there's a bike here to suit anyone's taste.
So now all you have to do is fill the form in below and you might be the lucky winner!
