New Bike Day: Ridley Crossbow

I picked up this 2007 Ridley Crossbow for a great price on the day that I found out I won't be riding for the foreseeable future. Still, my excitement is through the roof.  I have been looking for a lightweight 58cm cantilever brake bike for the past two months for project as my friend Brad gave me a suspension fork with cantilever brakes to play with. I had found a few bikes in the area but they were all too big. I wanted a smaller frame because I wanted something nimble and fast.

It has a carbon fork

and a power tap? Crazy! Not sure if it works, though.

Groupset is SRAM

Right now, I plan on running some wider tires and just ride it for a while to get the feel of the bike before I do some serious changes.
