Ribble Hybrid Al e

A direct competitor to the Ribble ALe seems to be the Specialized Vado SL. I'd be interested in the testers opinion of which would be most suitable a lightweight credit card tourer with some light off-road capability?

This bike comes seems well on point for an urban commuter but for a couple curious decisons.  One, the bottom bracket seems uneccesarily high off the ground, which detracts from stability and increases the standover for a given stack/reach.  Secondly, there's a bit of scitzophrenia with the finishing choices.  On the one hand, you have the classic looking light brown leather seat and grips.  On the other, you have road bike wheels with racy graphics.  I'd have liked to seen them go one way or the other.
