Here are a few pictures of my first Crossframe.
It´s a RIDLEY CROSSWIND with a PYTHON fork.
The Design ist nearly the same as the MC EWEN Edition.

You can order it regular from RIDLEY, its the same scheme as the MC EWEN one.
But without a few decals.
For those who are interested in :wink: , the frame in 56 cm has a weight 0f 1668 kilogramm with seatpostclamp and cabelroll.
The Fork has 405 gramm.

By the LBS you can choose every colorscheme in the folder. This Scheme is like Orchid said from Robbie MC Ewen. That isn't I believe in the folder. But you pay a little bit more for the color you want.

Looks great - really nice parts!


what size is the frame and how much does it weight? I got the same frame and fork but in the silver standard color in size 48cm! I'm excited about how much the weight is for my frame!

The Frame ist with Seatclamp an the roll for the Frontderaileur 1665 Gramm heavy.
The Fork has 409 Gramm uncut with Painting, so your Frame should be much more lighter.
The height of my Frame is 56.
