The only mountain wheelset this freehub will work on is the Crosstrail. The mountain hubs require this freehub:
This freehub is for wheels produce 2009 and forward.
The geo on a TT bike like the Talon is not going to transfer the the CX geo of the X- Bow. At 5'8", either bike would fit, it just comes down to the riding position you're looking for. The XS will have a smaller stack height, allow a more aggressive/race position with more saddle to bar drop. The small will have a taller stack height by 1.5 cm, allowing a more neutral saddle to bar measure. The small will have a high standover compared to the XS. My direct line is 801-736-6396 x4378 if you have any other questions.
Ridley doesn't list the standover for the X-Bow. The XS frame does feature a sloping top tube. When sizing I would use the stack and reach measures to determine proper fit. I personally pace more emphasis on rider position when on the bike pedaling rather than straddling it with both feet on the ground. Give our CS line a call and we'd be happy to help you get dialed on the right size bike.
The KingJoe Pro3 has a weight limit of 90lbs and will fit a Civic sedan.
The T5 isn't listed in Yakima's online fit guide, but the Eurovan is, and the King Joe is compatible with that. The strap system used with the King Joe alloys it to fit most vehicles.
The speedy has a standover height of 66cm or roughly 26", so that would be the minimum inseam if you're wanting the rider to be able to straddle the bike with both feet flat on the ground.
The sale cranks are model year 2013.
The Dean RS has a 1 1/8" straight steerer tube.
The rear RT8 brake would mount without issue, the problem would be the clearance on the front brake on the backside of the fork. That clearance issue the the reason Ridley stock calipers withe the RS frame.
The top of the frame is not right at the top of the pack, so unless you have it really hiked up on your back I don't see there being an issue with a helmet.
This is for use on I9s older style classic, XC, and Enduro hubs and only changes the axle from the stock 10x135 standard to the newer 12x142 axle standard. The classic, XC, and Enduro hubs were stocked with sealed bearings, and this axle will not work with other manufacturers hubs using a cone and ball interface.
This is not needed for the new Torch hubs. The Torch hubs simply require different end caps the change form 10x135 and 12x142 axle standards.
I would consider this a "short" water bottle. Taller bottles are typically 24-26 oz.
A number of people have been successful in running 11 spd cassettes with other manufacturer groupos. SRAM and Shimano will say optimal performance will be with matching parts, but they will work with each other.
These wheels already have the Easton bearing spacer update installed by Easton.
Ridley doesn't list standovern height on the below geo chart, but CX geometry does have a taller standover due to high BB height and steaper ST angles. Based on the reach measures, the Small has a short reach of 373mm compared to 378 on the XS, but the stack height is lower on the XS at 527. Both would be on the big size for a 5'2" rider, but the XS would have the lower standover.
The X Bow uses a English threaded BB.
This kit will work with all road shift systems including Shimano, SRAM, and Campy.
We're not able to make upgrade/changes to factory complete bikes.
