BH RX1/SRAM Rival Complete Bike $0.00
BH is a small, yet emerging brand in the American bike market. It's a powerhouse in Europe, as shown by its success in the professional peloton there, not to mention the widespread popularity of its bikes on roads and trails throughout the continent. Its reputation is thanks to their consistent focus on quality, performance, function. Our RX1/SRAM Rival Complete Cyclocross Bike is no exception.
BH makes certain that key details like a top tube with a flattened underside and cables that route internally are attended to. After all, cyclocross -- also known as the steeplechase of cycling -- is plenty arduous; no need to cause yourself any more pain than necessary. Other great details include cable tension adjusters for these internally routed cables, which serve to make maintenance easy and convenient.
The RX1 frame and fork both have monocoque carbon construction. This means that they're each laid up in the mold as a one-piece unit, ensuring uniformity in the tubes and through the intersections. This permits BH engineers to optimize tube shapes, whether it's for stiffness, lightness, or the elegant utility of an easy-to-shoulder top tube.
The RX1 uses a PressFit 30 bottom bracket. This bottom bracket standard uses a full carbon shell that has a 68mm width and a 46mm inside diameter. The large diameter shell allows the intersection of a huge down tube that adds stiffness to the bottom bracket area. While you can adapt any crank to this system, you'll maximize stiffness with a BB30-specific model, like the FSA Gossamer we use on this build.
For most of us, 'cross racing still means cantilever brakes, and the RX1 is no exception. The TRP EuroX brakes use a technology called Inplace Adjust, which makes positioning pads correctly on the braking surface much easier than what you're probably used to. In additional to simple adjustment, the EuroX Cantis are light, powerful, and won't drag half the muddy landscape along with you.
We've spec'd SRAM Rival shifters and derailleurs here. Rival will happily toe the line with its higher priced Force and Red counterparts in any racing conditions. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to discern the difference in a blind test. Rival components are more budget friendly, and for a bike that will likely see seasonal use, that's a great thing.
Tough, reliable Mavic Aksium wheels add confidence whether you're hammering through the pavement section, hopping barriers, or suffering through the sand. The Aksiums feature 20 (front and rear) bladed, straight-pull steel spokes that connect to Mavic's easily adjustable alloy hubs and 6061 aluminum rim. The 24mm deep rims are wrapped with 35mm Kenda Smallblock Eight tires.
Other details on this bike include a Selle San Marco Ponza Saddle, an FSA Wing Pro Alloy handlebar connected to a tough FSA OS-190 stem, and a BH seatpost. The BH RX1 is available in Red and comes in four sizes: 52, 54, 56, 57.
