    Good to see the Ridgeback is still going strong:-) I’ve just replaced the headset on mine with a good make called Hope that should last I bit longer! Previous one got trashed doing the Trans Pennine Trail this year….

    Hi Phil, yep, the Ridgeback is still up and running, although it needs a few replacement bits; chain, rear cassette, re-wrapped handlebars, possibly new forks. Keep wondering about buying a new tourer but this one has a lot of sentimental value! Trans Pennine trail sounds fun, but more of a mountain bike type affair – will look it up.

      I think if you replace the parts you mention, all should be good:-) My next tourer would probably have a Rohloff Hub & SON Dynamo! In my dreams at moment though!
