Ridley X Fire Rival 22 Complete Cyclocross Bike 2015

When we're building up a cyclocross machine, we typically privilege qualities like durability, reliability, and stiffness over considerations of weight.

The frame's oversized tubes are shaped for stiffness at crucial power transfer junctures stretching from the head tube through the down tube, bottom bracket, and chainstays a design that puts an emphasis on accelerating out of corners and after remounting. Areas that play less of a role in load bearing are thinned down, saving weight wherever doing so doesn't compromise efficiency. Despite the X Fire's stiffness and low weight, features like thinned seatstays also minimize the noise and chatter communicated to the cyclist's body. This ensures that, though 'cross races tend to be short, enjoyably brutal affairs, the long miles of base building and training rides leading up to them don't have to be. The 24T material itself also contributes to this balance of comfort and power, providing more vibration damping than the harsher 60T carbon in Ridley's climbers only, lose weight at all cost Helium road frame. The top and down tubes are also strategically squared off, providing better grip while the bike is shouldered during run ups. Building the bike with SRAM's Rival 22 shifting carries th...
