Ridley Cyclocross Bike

Hello All,

This may not be quite old enough to be "vintage" or "classic" but it is definitely old enough to have no good internet record, despite numerous web searches.

I purchased this frame in 2007 from a teammate who had way too many bikes. I have built it up under numerous iterations and beat on it for years.

The only markings on it is the Ridley on all of the tubes, aside from the Ridley "R" on the headtube. There is no serial number which I don't if that is common for bikes from this era. It is made of Easton Ultra Lite tubing typical for bikes in that general time period. I believe it is from the early 2000s. It seems very similar to photos of the Ridley Crossbow from the early 2000s, but I can't confirm that based off of the random photos I have found online.

So, my questions to you is, do you have any idea as to which Ridley Model it was? Why the paint job is slightly different than any I can find online (the ubiquitous black and World Champion stripe paint job)? And what year it is from?

This bike is the closest I can find, but it seems strange that they say "Crossbow" on that paint job, but mine gives no indication of model.


and THIS is my bike.

I should also mention that there is no serial number, which makes me wonder if it is a counterfeit frame.
