Ridley X-Night 30 disc

Here's my brand new 2015 Ridley X-Night. I just picked it up this evening after work. I knew that it was a magazine demo bike but I had no idea that the article I'd been reading on it all week, was a review of my actual bike! I was able to confirm this by comparing a photo of the bottom bracket that shows the serial number, to my serial number.... They're the same!

Here's a link to the article done by James Huang on Bike Radar. Needless to say, I'm beyond stoked! I plan to use this not only as a CX bike but, also for Gravel Grinding, and as my road bike, since it's very simular to Ridleys Helium SL road bike frame.

Just curious if there are any other X-Night owners here? I'd really like to see what y'all have don't to your X-Night. Also, I'm curious as to how large of a tire can I run?

Thanks!

Dang that's fancy! Comes stock with Rotor cranks? Do they offer a more OEM crankset as I don't keep track of newer bikes since I don't work in a shop anymore. That fork looks super beefy! Congrats as new bikes are always fun!

To see what size tire you can run, head over to the bike with your Allen-key set.

Start poking keys between the tire and the frame/brakes. When things look as large as you'd dare go, stop.

Double the size of the key, add to your current tire size.... done.


That is one sweet bike. I really like those.


Great story to go along with the bike.

Hey, that's a great idea, thanks! And thanks for the compliments, I'm very exited about this Saturday's shake down run.
