Lightweight Cross Bike #16: Pete's Ridley

Another really cool lightweight Cross machine is Pete’s Ridley Supercross. A good choice of lightweight parts that are still durable. Check it out!

Here's the specs on my Ridley. I don't have individual weights, onlythe cumulative weight.

Fork: 4ZA Python Carbon

Headset: FSA Integrated
Brake Levers: Campy Record
Brakes: Spooky Carbon
Seat Post: FSA SL K Zero Setback
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR
Crank Set: FSA Carbon Pro Compact
Chain Rings: Salsa 110 mm X 40T
Bottom Bracket: FSA Pro Ti
Pedals: Crank Brothers Ti, 1st Generation
Chain: Record
Rear Derailleur: Campy Chorus
Cassette: Campy Chorus
Hubs Frt & Rr: DT 240s 28 hole
Rims Frt & Rr: DT RR 1.1Spokes: DT Revolutions

The total weight on my Fish Scale is: 16.62 lbs. Since the photos, I've added a chain guard. The next big item is a new wheelset. Most likely DT hubs with Zipp 285 Pave Rims and Gommitalia tires.

I would serioulsy consider:

a) Throwing some chain guides/guards and and/or a 3rd eye for that front ring. You can get some carbon chi chi to match that FSA crank set.

b) Taking somke links out of that chain. WAY too much it appeas given you are in the lowest gear in teh back and the derailleur is still pretty slack.

The confifuration as it looks in teh pics has disaster written all over it...meaning you'll be spending time putting your chain back on during races rather than stayting at the front!
