Ridley Crosswind 2008

A light and nice bike. It's a bit shorter than I'd prefer, so i don't really know if it is a keeper. Had it repainted pigeon blue and love the colour. The combination of Shimano 5700 STIs and Tektro RX5 brakes works extremely well! It's the first bike i completely built up myself (milling bb, installing headset and bb, setting up and dialing in the shifting etc.). Added a pic of how it looked like when i bought it. EDIT - was too small and too short. Note to self - do not buy small bikes and try to make them fit...
