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.

Is it worth upgrading Oval 500 brakes to Ultegra?

I have a 2012 Fuji Gran Fondo 2.0 which has mostly Ultegra components. It has some brand I've never heard of for the crank and brake calipers. My gf has a 2013 Fuji Supreme 1.3 and hers appears to be a half step up from mine because it has Ultegra brakes. I'm from the mountain bike world and just ... Read More »

Oval Rings

Are they bad again now that Wiggins stopped using them? This is like a tennis match with the back and forth and I lost track of where we are. On another note, I am excited about Praxis when I have to replace my Shimano rings since I already have a second mortgage on the house and the bank will n ... Read More »

Ultegra brakes vs Oval 500 brakes? I have difficulty stopping with my Oval's

I have a 2012 Fuji Gran Fondo 2.0 and my gf has a 2013 Fuji Supreme 1.3. I rode hers for an unrelated issue and noticed that her brakes stopped on a DIME. Our bikes are almost identical other than brakes and a few other small touches. I have a Trek Superfly mountain bike with Shimano XT hydraulic ... Read More »
