Project Bike: Ridley Excalibur Carbon Road Bicycle

Ridley Excalibur Carbon Fibre Road Bicycle Small 53cm equipped with Shimano 105 11-Speed Groupset.

This Belgian lightweight super-responsive oversized-tubing carbon roadie is borne from the Ardennes, roads known to be tough, undulating, punctuated by gear-grinding climbs through the Walloon region. I’ve ridden those roads, they’re at times punchy, definitely cobbled, certainly meandering with tight medieval corners perfect for defending against the steely swords of King Arthur’s mysticism.
