The revised version of the 1997 Champions "Swiss Cross" is back and better than ever.
Tom Ritchey shows that he is not only an outstanding component manufacturers, but also a frame builder legend. The thin heat-treated, triple-butted steel tubes and the seventies look lend the Swiss Cross a timeless design.
By modernizing the sloping geometry of the new cyclocross frame is replaced by a "race feeling" that should convince any cross-Fan off road.
In extremely narrow head tube bearing cups for 1 1/8 bearings are incorporated. The matching WCS tax rate is included. The rear brake cable runs without tension stop by to brake.
The use of a Ritchey WCS carbon fork not only saves weight, but also resolves the problem of stuttering during braking steel predecessor. Large tire clearance and two bottle holders mounts round the bright red cross frameset perfectly.
