Ribble HT Trail AL 29 in anthracite grey
During 2022 MarkJ bought himself a Ribble hardtail, the HT Trail AL 29.

The bike came custom painted in Fresh Mandarin metallic gloss with white decals and when Mark actually decides to ride it you can expect lots of photos. Hard to get something shiny and new all muddy!

But until then here’s the specification and geometry details for future reference.

If you want a Ribble HT Trail AL 29 of your own, find it on the Ribble website.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
