    Why is it a disappoint? I'm still building up a cross race bike.. I just ordered a frame different from the one in the title. Eesh. It should be here early next week.

    Frame. Not complete bike. Sorry, but I don't get what the problem is.

    Oh, you didn't say frame. Sounded like you just ordered a complete bike which would have been a disappointment to those reading this thread. In this case, please proceed!!

    Blue is my least favorite color on a bike, but that is a good looking frame.

    It's a cable pulley so you can use a bottom-pull front derailleur with top-mounted cables.

    I'm envious.

    What size is she, and what size crux would you have ridden?

    I ask because I normally ride a 54, and would on crux, but in ridley's I seem to be a 48 which I find shocking.

    It's a 56, but big. I have about 1 cm of standover height, seat tube and reach are perfect. I would have gotten the same size in a crux.

    Oh, and thanks!
