Take on the cyclocross scene and so much more with Ritchey’s venerable Swiss Cross Disc. With the same details that dominated the 'cross circuit and spurred envious glances at every start line, this timeless frameset is sure to supplant its progenitor in the annals of history. The classic details so coveted by pros and amateurs alike are all present: custom triple-butted steel, Ritchey dropouts, and the spot-on geometry that dials the ride to the perfect shade of refined stability and speed. To maximize those fine details, a lightweight head tube features Ritchey's integrated headset to shave weight and improve the steering response of the matching WCS carbon fork. With lots of room for shouldering and huge tire clearance, it's ready for the sloppiest race or ride. Yet it also has two bottle cage mounts in case you want to ride this piece of history every day. And, all-weather capable disc brakes provide sure-fire control and stopping power no matter what the conditions.
Take the hole shot with KHS’s CX 300. Its ultra-light A7 aluminum frame keeps your power heading to the rear wheel for swift acceleration while the full-carbon CX fork keeps your front end knifing through the crud when the ruts start to freeze up. The tough, Weinmann XC-180 rims stand up to crooked bunny hops and choppy corners, which pose little problem thanks to the tenacious Maxxis Mud Wrestler tires. And, forget about the pits, because Shimano’s 105 2 x 11-speed drivetrain doesn’t quit when the mud turns to peanut butter. Throw in a set of hydraulic Shimano disc brakes, and you have a rig that not only stands up to punishment, but dishes it right back to the course as you blaze laps to keep the crowd warm.
Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. This ultimately resulted in another iconic Ritchey model—the Swiss Cross. The Swiss Cross Disc blends this Cyclocross racing heritage with up-to-date geometry and tubing. And as always, the sweet, perfectly balanced ride that Ritchey is known for. We started with the same forged-and-machined integrated head tube design found on the P-29er—80 grams lighter than a standard 1-1/8" head tube and just as strong—a design which also provides much-needed shouldering room at the head tube. Tubing is an all-new triple-butted, heat treated steel designed to Tom's specifications for a classically lightweight, compliant, yet tough-as-nails frame. Geometry has been updated to reflect what 'cross riders want: race-ready handling and responsiveness that's still versatile enough to serve as a capable all-around rough road/trail bike. Tire clearance? Plenty. The Swiss Cross Disc is designed with 'cross racing in mind, after all. But with two bottle cage mounts, the Swiss Cross is perfect for long mixed rides in the off-season. - Handmade to Tom Ritchey's exacting standards - Updated modern sloping top tube Cyclocross geometry - Heat treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II CrMo steel tubing throughout - Forged and machined head tube with integrated cups for use with drop-in headsets – lighter and stronger than a standard head tube - Straight carbon steer tube with optimized layup for stiffness under braking forces without excessive harshness - Ritchey WCS Carbon disc cross fork, painted to match - Full-length housing stops for use with cable or hydraulic brakes - Front: 140/160mm rotor compatible; Rear: 160mm rotor compatibility - Post mount - Ritchey socket dropout - 135mm rear spacing - Room for tires up to 38c tires - Ritchey WCS headset included - 28.6 front derailleur clamp (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - Weight: 1960g / 4.32 lbs (55cm, frame only)
Masi's CXRc Comp is a barrier-hoppin', mud-lovin', cowbell-ringin' good time! The lightweight carbon frame and fork float over dirt, grass, and tarmac, pairing with ‘cross-specific shaped tubes to make the CXRc Comp a breeze to shoulder on the run-ups.

650b what? In the old days when randonneuring bikes ruled on long rides over mixed surfaces, the 650b tire size was perfectly suited for moving fast under control. Surly took this concept and applied it to the Straggler, a disc brake-equipped any-road type of bike bred from their revered Cross Check. The slightly smaller wheels accommodate smaller frame sizes and plump tire widths, creating options where few exist in this realm of riding. Make it your gravel explorer on weekends, your trusty commuter during the week, and go collect all the hand-ups when cyclocross season rolls around. This Straggler's lookin' for a good time and you seem like the type to oblige.

It also has clearance for 42mm tires, a full set of rack and fender eyelets, and custom rear dropouts that let you ride the bike singlespeed or geared. The wide-range SRAM Apex drivetrain will get you through all the ups and downs of any ride, and snappy SRAM Apex DoubleTap shifters make it easy to get through the gears.
