The uber-popular all-carbon X-Fire is now available in a disc brake version. It features disc brake tabs, a tapered head tube, internal cables and 135mm rear spacing. For 2014, Ridley gave the X-Fire Disc a classic white/carbon finish that will never go out of style.
The Ridley X-Fire frameset is one of the most exciting carbon fiber Cyclocross framesets to date. Not a company to rest on their laurels, Ridley took the World Champion pedigree X-Fire and refined a few key details. The most significant change next to the disc-brake option is the internal cable routing for both mechanical and electronic. This means the cables won't collect mud or get in the way when it comes time to carry. Full-length housing also keeps out potential water, dirt and corrosion and makes cable replacement easy.
The full carbon frame features the requisite oversize down tube and bottom bracket for exceptional power transfer but has the low weigh and ride quality need to win world championships. A matching full carbon fork (with exceptional cosmetics we must say) rotates on a 1.5" lower bearing for rock-solid handling and shudder-free breaking.
Build details: requires 34.9 front derailleur, 135mm rear spacing, 31.6mm seat post and a PressFit 30 bottom bracket
