    It depends on the manufacturer, we have them shorter than our road Breakaway frame geometry, but I can't speak for everyone.

    That's correct, and I'm not sure about a 57 but a 55 is 5.18lbs (including fork).

    Ritchey swiss cross

    I just got lucky and found a Ritchey swiss cross, steel frame, steel fork. I am not a great hill climber so am thinking either shimano ultegra compact with 11/34 casette and sram x9 RD. Or shimano ultegra triple with 11/27. Plan on riding in Italy and NZ next year. And there are one or two hills in both countries . As we well know :>) Any suggestions ?

    John, with all the traveling, maybe you should get a Ritchey Breakaway cross frame and sell your Swiss Cross to me ;-)

    I'm old, fat and slow and can't climb well either. Most hills I can get up just fine with a compact crank, but.... with a compact crank, I find I'm always cross-chained. And with an 11/34, you'll have some big jumps between gears. Therefore, I like a triple, even though it's not as cool. With the 39 in the middle, I avoid cross chaining and find the shifting is more pleasant. That's just my experience.

    But give that Ritchey Breakaway Cross frame some thought.

    Ritchey Cross

    Bud.. sounds like breakaway would be a good idea. Looked at some prices online and seems the breakaway and my swiss cross are about equal value. How about yuu send me a breakaway and I'll send you the swiss cross. It's a 55cm top tube but a little large for me. I'm more about 52 or 53cm.

    Sorry, too small for me. I need a 58-59 top tube. There's a great deal on a frame/fork, size 54 at GVH Bikes, right now.

    Or, if you prefer, there's a 53 cross on ebay now too.

    Go get 'em!

    Dave i look forward to them being available in the UK. Congrats on you taking the time to field questions direct from customers and answering their questions. A terrific lesson on how to interact with your buying public and one that all companies should copy.
    Cant see any details on your website at the moment. Will this be changing soon?

    Thanks! It's entirely my pleasure, I just like talking about bikes and bike parts. As far as details they are up on our website now.

    Hi,
    What size do you recomend on the swiss cross? I'm 185cm and have an inner leg messure of 92cm. I have an 58 canyon and happymtb with it. Think of an 57 but the seattube is pretty short, what you think?

    In my view, you're between sizes. But I think the only answer you'll get from Ritchey is that you should contact your local Ritchey dealer for specific help with your sizing needs.

    Budweiser knows me well, sizing is best addressed in person with a professional fitter. I'd hate to give you advice based on limited information and have you unhappy with your purchase.

    They should be available in a few weeks. Make sure to put one on order if you want one. They'll be sold through local authorized Ritchey bike shops and Excel Sports.

    Not a travesty at all. We're in the process of designing one. Release date is unknown though.
