The Fenix SL Disc Ultegra Complete Road Bike from Ridley represents a cost-effective way to get into a professional level frame along with the precise shifting and powerful disc brakes of Shimano's stalwart Ultegra group.

Compared to the original Fenix, the Fenix Disc also has a slightly longer wheelbase, stretching 2mm longer for a size medium. While this difference is more pronounced in the smaller sizes, even the bigger frames benefit from a more stable footing over packed...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
