Description

Far from old-fashioned.

While carbon fiber has quickly become the material du jour for elite level ‘cross race bikes, there’s still a committed group of racers who prefer to ride aluminum frames. And when your bike handles as well as the Ridley X-Ride 20 Disc Complete Bike, it’s easy to see why. The triple butted tubeset yields a ride that’s both spirited, and surprisingly smooth, while the oversized tapered head tube keeps the steering precise when the ruts start getting deep. And with a sensible build kit that’s ready for a season of circuit laps, you’d be forgiven for asking why you need anything fancier.

The X-Ride’s 7005 aluminum tubeset features an aggressive triple butting profile, which yields thicker walls at the welded junctions, for strength, with the weight and ride quality advantages of a thinner tube in the middle. The geometry is nearly identical to the X-Fire, which is built around classic Continental handling. It maintains the relaxed head angle and higher bottom bracket, for aggressive cornering in the dirt. The bottom bracket is slightly higher than the X-Night, which gives it a more responsive feel for those of us with mortal handling skills. A short wheelbase keeps the handling lively, and it means that you won’t have any issues throwing it into turns at full speed.

In addition to the aggressive butting profile, the X-Ride’s aluminum tubeset sees external tube forming intended to help it cope with the stresses of cyclocross. Specifically, the down tube gets a horizontal squash -- giving it greater weld surface at the head tube -- and manipulation on the vertical plane to provide maximum weld surface at the bottom bracket shell. When you factor in the slightly flattened portion at the bottom of the top tube, which enhances carrying comfort, the X-Ride’s race-bred heritage is obvious. But since you’ll want to ride it pretty much everywhere, it gets dual water bottle mounts to enhance the versatility.

Ridley outfitted the X-Ride 20 with a built kit that’s ready to handle a full season of racing. The 4ZA Oryx disc fork is built entirely out of carbon fiber, for superior strength, and the tapered head tube fights chatter under hard braking. The build kit consists of Shimano’s 105 group for the shifters, cassette, and rear derailleur. 105 is a proven, reliable performer, without a painful price tag when a season’s worth of mud-paste finally takes its toll on moving parts. The crankset comes from FSA, with a ‘cross-optimized 46/36 spread, while braking is handled by Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes. The cockpit consists of 4ZA items, which forgo flash for rock-solid reliability, and leaves you some greenbacks to cover those race entry fees.

The Ridley X-Ride 20 Complete Bike is available in six sizes, from 48 to 58cm, and in the color Black/red.

Description Doesn't Match the Bike

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

If you buy this bike be aware that the contents don't match the listed components. Most of the components differences are relatively similar, however the brakes would be considered a significant departure from the stated brake (Avid BB7 versus Hayes CX5).

Unfortunately we will not be receiving any larger sizes with this package. Please keep in mind that Ridley Cyclocross bikes do run quite large, and a smaller size may be the best fit for you.

Hi. I am 5'9" and I have the Small XBow and it fits just fine. Its more to big than too small but i like it a lot.

Was looking at the sizing of the xride and am torn between the 50 and the 48. it seems the 48 would be the best fit. anyone out there has the xride and is around 5'9"? which size did you get and is it right? thanks so much!

Hi Chris,

Keeping in mind that Ridley Cyclocross bikes do run quite large, and your height and experience with the XBow a size 50cm will be an ideal fit. I am 5'10'' myself, and have found the 50cm in the x-ride to be the best size for me with a more of a "race" position.

I am 5'3... will the 48cm be too big for me?

Responded on

My wife is about the same height. I bought her a 48 xfire. It's a very tall stand over height, but the stack and reach is just right. If you can tolerate the stand over height, it's a good choice, but the top tube is right there. It feels and looks big due to the geometry, but it might be just right.?? hope this helps.

2000KM update

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have ridden this bike for 2000km now after buying it in January. I have ridden it with 25mm road tires on and I swapped the crankset out for an Ultegra compact 50/34. I have ridden mostly through mountains on not the greatest types of road surface and in all kind of extreme weather. The bike is strong and still rides very well. I have had no problems with the frame or wheels at all beyond the head tube paint wearing through from cable rub within a few rides. I use the bike for commuting 50km per day and on the weekends I can easily do a 200km road ride on this bike. Overall, for the cost, this is a great bike.

Do these run really big? I have a 2009 Jamis Nova Pro 58cm that has a stand over of 82.7cm and a 575 effective top tube The chart shows a Ridley 54 having a stand over of 85cm but a top tube of
545.

Best Answer Responded on

The Ridley Cyclocross bikes do run a little big for their size. They tend to have taller standover than most for two reasons. First, the Ridleys' use classic Belgian cyclocross geometry with a high bottom bracket for cornering on off camber turns. The higher top tube makes for easier shouldering when running up a set of stairs or barriers. Also, in cyclocross you are leaping on and off your bike over the back/saddle, so you don't spend much time straddling the top tube.

At 6'3", I typically ride a road bike with a 59cm top tube, and the 58cm X-Ride fits well with a 57.5 effective top tube and 120mm stem.
