So you caught the 'cross bug' That's ok, it's quite contagious and now you're looking for a bike that matches your newfound fitness and skillset.

The internal cable routing creates a clean and streamlined look while getting the housing out of the way while lifting the bike up and over the barriers, or while trying to find a foothold on a steep and tricky run-up. As a bonus, the design helps prevent the shift cables from becoming contaminated in muddy conditions. At the front of the bike, Ridley drops in its carbon fiber Oryx disc fork into the headtube. It features a 12mm thru-axle to an...

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.
