Feck. Although mine's still on from the 3PCx. was a 25 before. Phew!
And I thought you all was going to point out it was a 29er (not that I know what the difference is as it says you could run 700c as well
My cross wheels carry a 28 as the bottom gear, that's with a single chainring @36. For the Three Peaks next year I am going to fit the biggest pussy plate my mech will handle, but stick with the single up front. Range 11 - 32??
Thats gorgeous Mr V..... the far forward saddle position looks a little odd but im sure its like this for good reason....
Tip of the saddle 20 mm behind bottom bracket. All my bikes have this position, it's where I get the best power delivery.
Thanks for the compliment.
I love dem Focus rigs. Hawt.
The Niner is a gravel bike apparently. Not supposed to be a CX race bike, hence the curious chainset / rear mech arrangement.
@VamP I run 39/12-28. Which I'm training into
With a short cage mech I suspect you could get away with 12-34. The short cage SRAM on my bike will take 11-36 if that's your bag. Your's looks like a long cage som bung on anything that you like.
I like this...
Me too, I was going to post the link too after getting their email today. Flandrian and cyclocross is just right. Ridley offered a similar paint job a couple of years ago.
Have just taken delivery of this beauty, which seems worth resurrecting the thread for...
Unfortunately, it's not mine, just borrowed for a photoshoot, but I'm hoping to do at least a couple of races on it. The colour is incredible - they call it 'acid pink'. In the publicity shots on the Specialized website, it looks a bit dark, but in real life it's really punchy. Nicely specced too, with SRAM Rival 1x and Roval SLX 24 wheels.
What happens to the bikes after your time with them?
quite a few of those on the Yorkshire circuit I've noticed.
Earlier in this thread, I wrote that I once wanted a P21, still do!!
With Ritcheys own (Logic) stem, bars, seat-pin, wheels, chain-set, tyres, cantilevers, etc......
