Ritchey Break-Away Road Carbon Frameset

    

The patented Ritchey Break-Away® design has been heralded by mainstream cycling media as one of the most innovative bikes on the market today. The Break-Away concept has been proven to be the most practical, cost effective and convenient way to travel with a quality road bike. For several years these acclaimed Ritchey bikes were offered only in steel and titanium, or titanium with rear carbon stays, but Break-Away fans and Tom Ritchey himself sought a lighter weight, higher performance, full carbon option. The challenge was to develop a carbon tubeset that could not only withstand potential impacts in the soft Ritchey travel bag, but also assure cyclists that any impact that would damage the Carbon Break-Away Frameset would also damage a frame of any material. Of course the frameset had to deliver the impeccable, balanced ride quality Ritchey is known for, and elicit overall performance that any road cyclist could fall in love with.

In success, Ritchey designed the carbon tubes from the ground, up with optimal stiffness, ride quality and durability in mind. Tom Ritchey's "Right-Sized" carbon tubing specification balances stiffness and compliance for a sublime ride quality. The actual Break-Away couplings benefit from the oversized, strong carbon tubes, and when the seatpost is installed and the downtube joint clamp is fastened, you would never know the frame comes in two pieces. This travel-ready bike enjoys also classic Ritchey geometry that is both responsive and stable, making the Road Carbon Break-Away Frameset your trusted ally on a long day in the mountains of Europe or exploring the roads of Australia. A perfectly matched WCS Carbon road fork is included with this frameset and the bike features clearance for most 700 x 28mm road tires for the best combination of a forgiving ride and lower rolling resistance resistance.

The ability to break your complete bike down so it will fit into the included 8.5" x 26.5" x 31" travel case. This size is generally considered to be acceptable as standard luggage, and when your bike is packed in you will easily stay under the 50lb weight limit, meaning with most airlines you won't have additional luggage fees. The Break-Away travel case features handles and wheels to make travel easier. It also includes a packing kit to help protect bike components and frame tubes. The durable Cordura construction has reinforced corners and holds up to airline baggage handlers and TSA inspections. We recommend you consider Ritchey wheels that features the easily broken down Phantom Flange hub design and self contained freehub body. These inspired designs make packing easier, but are not truly required. The simple and durable 41.8mm WCS Integrated Drop-In headset for the 1⅛" headtube is included, as are the full complement of cable splitters you need for derailleur and brake cables. A 27.2mm diameter seatpost is required, along with a braze-on front derailleur and 68mm threaded BSC bottom bracket.
