Welcome to another 'jackeen'.

SlimTim ( a member on here ) is putting together his own RIB so it might be worth talking to him.

Other illustrious RIB builder members include Cookee and Kitten, Adam Younger (mainly race level ) and Tony Davis. They're all pretty generous with advice.

Worth talking to JWalker too, Pete 7, DaveManning and Daniel as well as Alan Priddy and more because they have done loads as regards RIB building.

That should keep you researching for days!


Happy New Resolutions!!! : RIBbing for the craic!!!

Hi Oatway and welcome to RIBnet. These people supply RIB kits but I have no idea how good they are I'm afraid!

Good luck and if you do build your own RIB please post updates and pictures so we can follow your progress (and so certain forum members can tell you ten different ways to do every task! ).
