Ridley DEAN Frameset Black Red Matte / Gloss
Dean is the ultimate speed machine that?ll have you jetting off the starting ramp or flying out of the transition area. Every detail is designed with optimal turbulence reduction in mind. Comfort is also carefully considered so you can get the most out of your body. From its smart F-Surface Plus teardrop tubing and paint texturing to its hi-tech system integration ranging from fully adjustable aero cockpit to seatpost.
One detail that we?re especially proud of is its dropouts. We?ve opted for standard road bike dropouts on both sides of the bike that can be easily swapped out for other dropouts of varying sizes. This allows you to easily switch tire sizes while keeping your rear wheel nicely tucked into the back of the seat tube at all times. A side benefit of having standard road bike dropouts is that you can simply remove the rear wheel when packing it into a bike box or into your car.
Both cockpit and saddle are completely adjustable so you can nail your unique tuck position. We?ve also incorporated internal cable routing to further reduce the Dean?s drag. Cable routing is simple for easy cable changes as well as maintenance.
