It’s nice to see that some bike manufactures have the interests of aspiring, young road cyclists in mind. Such is the case with Ridley.
The well-known Belgian brand announced recently, the launch of a new "juniors" road and cyclocross bike.
Predicated on an aluminum 6061-T6 sloping frame, both models feature Tektro mini V-brakes, along with Shimano’s Claris 2×8 drivetrain with 155mm cranks, 46/34 rings and a 13/26 cassette.
In addition, the bikes are equipped with a shallow reach 380mm wide handlebar and 27.2 post. The Wheels are built using Alex 19 double wall rims, along with Schwalbe CX Pro 26×1.35 tires.
The only difference with the road version, is the switch to Kenda RoadRace 26″ x 23c tires.
