X-Trail Limited Edition Frameset by Ridley
In recent years we've seen a surge of attention drawn towards off-road, and all-road adventuring. Maybe it's the last frontier of a wild-west like experience -- diving down the roads less traveled to visit sites and places that are seldom seen by others, or maybe we're just feeling a little limited by traditional road geometry, and want the ability to keep our adventure going after the road ends. Either way, those of us who crave miles beyond the tarmac, and not inside of a car, are diving into that wild beyond (okay, maybe it's just a country road), with an ear-to-ear grin, and an appreciation for the scenic route.

Subtly asymmetrical, the Oryx Disc fork has a reinforced left leg to allow it to more capably handle the torsional forces applied by disc brakes, and with a 15 x 100mm thru axle in front and a 12 x 142mm in the rear, the frame achieves confidence-inspiring stiffness throughout. As we alluded to above, the X-Trail is a medley o...

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.
