Strengths:    Stiffness handling...

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I have been racing my Ridley oval on track for past two seasons. Upon first glance the geometry does appear to be suited for the road. However, this bike was made with a short fork rake, and a short wheelbase. It handles in sprint and mass start events just as one would need it too. This bike is very stiff and tracks straight in a sprint. I guarenteee if you purchase this bike for mass start events you won't be disapointed! Only thing stiffer would be a full carbon BH, Corima, Teschner. But you gotta pay a premium to get one. The ridley is reasonably priced and ready to rock the bowl.
