So after my Wilier Zero7 was destroyed, I got new Ridley X-fire frameset which I ordered long time ago. Ridley had some delivery problems in 2013, but in the end I got my frameset. I wanted new training bike, because I had problem with braking during winter. So I decided to go Disc.

Build list is following:

Ridley X-Fire Disc frame + fork
Ultegra 6700 groupset with Campagnolo Centaur carbon crank 53/39
Avid BB7 brakes
Deda Zero2 stem
Deda Newton bars
Deda Superzero seatpost
Saevid S1.2 saddle
Far Sports disc wheels with Novatec hubs
Challenge Grifo tubulars
Keo pedals

I know I can be banned for this, but weight of this build was not important :P
I wanted solid training bike which can be used during nice summer or during nasty winter.

That looks great. I love it.

Even though you didn't worry about the weight it would still be useful to have the following info:

-Frame Size
-Weight

I think I want one :D

Good looking bike! I have the same frame for cross racing and I have really enjoyed riding it. Do you have a cross chainset also or do you use the standard off road as well?

Love it!

My Excalibur has a similar paint job (actually the Vacansoleil one, but not too far off) and it really does look great in person, especially w/ carbon tubs :cool:

Thank you for comments.
So far, I have just something like 300 km on the bike, but I'm happy with the build.
I use the bike 99% on the road as training bike and not for CX races, so this is the reason for road 53/39 crank. And it is Centaur, because I already had it from old bike, so I used it. I did not want to buy new crank and leave this one laying in cupboard.
Shifting is fast and reliable, so I'll leave it on the bike :)
