This full-size road bike can easily be broken down to fit within the included conveniently sized travel case. The padded case measures 8.5″x26.5″x31” which is a lot smaller than a typical travel case. The dimensions of this case allow one to travel with their bicycle and avoid the airline fees as long as the weight remains under 50 pounds. The small, light case also makes life easier while navigating busy airport terminals, rental car areas and hotel rooms. For those worried about the frame becoming damaged during travel Ritchey has done extensive testing, and has years of experience with the carbon stays on their Ti/Carbon Break-Away, and determined that the the Break-Away Carbon frameset is as resilient as the other offerings. To insure proper assembly at your destination Ritchey provides a 4Nm Break-Away torque key.
The Ritchey Break-Away Carbon road frameset includes cable disconnects and couplers which make packing and unpacking the bicycle quick and painless. You will not have to worry about packing an extensive array of tools. Just don’t forget your pump and shoes and you will be ready to ride wherever you end up traveling! The frame comes in five sizes ranging from XS-XL (please refer to geometry chart to select the proper size). Please note Ritchey does not guarantee that airlines will not charge. Please refer to the Ritchey geometry chart to find the best frame size.
