Great all around bike
- I've put it through the wringer
The XTrail is a very smooth stable machine. I have ridden it on the road, gravel, and cyclocross on it and so far so good. It actually does all three disciplines very well. I built it up with the SRAM Force groupset. 46/36 crankset. TRP Spyre brakes. HED Stinger 3 wheelset. FMB Slalom 33 service course tires. Shimano XTR pedals. Selle Italia saddle. Zipp service course bar, stem and seat post. One big difference I have noticed compared to my Felt FX is the one degree less head tube angle actually makes the bike perform better on long straight runs and is smoother and more stable over the rough stuff. On the road, it is very capable much more than I expected. It’s not a fast aero road bike but once again smooth and fast enough. On the CX course it works just fine once I made the adjustment to it. It doesn’t turn in as fast on really tight corners and has a tendency to glide around corners. And lacks a little less out of the hole shot compared to my other race rocket. This is my first Ridley and they did a great job on the geometry and frameset. I’m 6’1 and went with the medium frameset. I find frames with a 56cm top tube work best for me even though every bike shop wants to put me in a 58 or 60cm bike. I used competitive cyclist calculator and I have to say it was pretty much spot on. It got me in the ballpark and I fine tuned it from there. I was looking for a gravel/road bike and this bike pretty much nails it. Coupled with my build I am very happy with the way it came. Why only four stars then, because nothing is perfect and nobody gets five stars. Lastly, I painted it white. I ordered the matte gray model and it was horrible. It was primer gray alright. It was nothing like the advertised picture and I even contemplated about sending it back but since I have the skill, the technology and it’s what I do for a living, I painted it.

Wow dude that looks great, thank you for posting this. I contemplated painting mine myself but I left in the hands of a professional in the Bay Area. I will post pics when I get mine back. i dropped it off for paint 4 days after it arrived, and coincidentally I love white bikes so I'm having him do white, but leaving classic style ovals around the the lettering, and some grey, but all gloss. You must have painstakingly masked and cut around the existing blue, cheers to that.

Frame arrived, beautiful but the color!
Mine arrived a few days ago (size Med. I'm 5'8 1/2. Frame was beautifully packed and quickly shipped. It's absolutely a gorgeous frame, and I can't wait to build and ride. The thing I will note is the color. The light grey one in the pictures is not what I received, the grey is dark grey like primer, not white'ish like in the pictures. Update:05/23/2020 frame back from paint, added pictures, now I can start building.

Can you post a picture of that? A darker grey sounds better than the whiter finish on the stock photos.

I agree. It’s primer gray. I seriously contemplated about sending it back but given what I do for a living I did the next best thing, I painted it.

Ben it just depends on what you like, I like white, that's why I ordered this color based on the photos being so light. It's very mat finish and I prefer gloss so I'm having it painted gloss white keeping borders around the grey and blue. I'll try to post before and afters when I get it back. Looks good Tad

One could easily just clear coat it and it would look really good too. I just feel like the dirt mud and road grime with stick to the mat finish too much.

I found on Ridley's website (Link https://www.ridley-bikes.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/X-Trail-Carbon.pdf) than from 2016 onwards they switched from the front 15x100mm axle to a 12x100mm axle. Could you please confirm the dimensions of the front axle? Thanks!

Aside from color and price, are there any other differences between Ridley X-Trail carbon and X-trail limited edition framesets,? Also what are the weights of X-trail carbon and X-trail limited edition?

only thing I caught was the X-Trail Limited has a 15x100mm front axle, instead of the 12x100 that's on the X-Trail, geometry appears to be identical. Any missing facts would be helpful from Backcountry/Comp.Cyclist...not even any info on Ridley's website...
