High BB is good for pedaling through corners, and bunny hopping
Finally found claimed weight of ridley frame 1280 grams, pf30. Not crazy light, but such a sweet frame.
Stiffness is off the charts and full internal routing is a big consideration.
Probably gonna go with the Ridley.
I also really like the spec of the top end Ridley, with carbon tubulars meaning no upgrades necessary fro race worthiness.
Claimed weight as built with reynolds 46 tubs (1263 g) and sram red/force minus slk crank, wcs cockpit and 250 g seat is 16.02 lbs w/o pedals. IMO this is darn light for a cx bike. Carbon cockpit and super weenie crank and cassette would drop below 16 with pedals.
