Since Ridley partners with the Topsport Vlaanderen Pro Duo team, which features such world class athletes as Kelly Druyts, the Belgian manufacturer knows what women can do on a bike. That's why the Liz C20 Complete Road Bike uses the same kit and materials found in the men's Fenix line. The only difference is that the Liz is offered with 3 centimeters less reach and a slightly shorter standover height for cyclists with smaller body frames. Its size doesn't affect its strength or comfort, though. The Liz C20 is designed to keep you grinding miles all day. It uses a vibration devouring blend of 30 and 24 ton unidirectional carbon fibers as opposed to the 50 to 60 ton moduli favored in only weight is important frames. Potholes, cobblestones, and other road hazards are as smooth as crosswalk paint on the Liz, but they may feel like taking repeated hammer blows to the kidneys on 60 ton carbon. The C20's oversized bottom bracket and burly chainstays mean comfort doesn't come at the cost of efficiency, though. If you ever get tired of wantonly running over obstacles, the stiff, tapered head tube nets responsive steering to dodge through debris with ease. As mentioned above, Ridley didn't skimp on the kit. This is a real bike for a real cyclist, so Shimano's newly redesigned 11 speed 105 drivetrain gets the nod. Another sign that Ridley intends this bike to be ridden hard is that they didn't skimp on the cassette, which is easy to do since it's not heavily branded. When they say full 105, they mean it even when they could get away with cutting corners. The Fulcrum Racing 7 LG wheelset is another strong spot on the bike, and, combined with the bombproof 105, is all but guaranteed to keep you worry free for years.
