The frame of the X-Ride is manufactured from triple butted 7005 aluminium and features double water bottle bosses, Mudless tube technology, and strong/reliable cantilever brakes. It's geometry is also ideally suited to both off and on road making the X-Ride a versatile machine especially during the Winter months.
The groupset is predominantly Shimano's 10 speed Ultegra and offers clean, precise shifting. The FSA Gossamer chainset is cyclocross specific (46x36) meaning the outer/inner rings are bigger than a compact chainset, but less than a double chainset. This provides you with the ability to tackle virtually any slope or flat section with ease whilst maintaining a high pedal cadence so to keeping you in control.
Grip is provide by Challenge tyres (Grifo Pro 700x32c), and the finishing kit is mostly all in-house components (4ZA).
Each X-Ride is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure your bike arrives in perfect condition.

About Cyclocross Bikes
Cyclocross bikes are similar to road bike, they are lightweight, with narrow tyres and drop handlebars. However, they also share characteristics with mountain bicycles in that they utilize knobby treaded tyres for traction, and cantilever style brakes for the clearance needed due to muddy conditions. They have to be lightweight because competitors need to carry their bicycle to overcome barriers or slopes too steep to climb in the saddle. The sight of competitors struggling up a muddy slope with bicycles on their shoulders is the classic image of the sport, although un-ridable sections are generally a very small fraction of the race distance. Cross bikes also make good winter bikes or commuters, their frames have plenty of clearance which allows for mudguards, while the upright angles make them agile around town, meaning you can hit the trails at the weekend and then fit some road tyres and commute on them during the week.

This Ridley X-Ride 1203C1 Ultegra 2013 looks pretty ok, but I'm currently wondering a bit which would be the best frame alternative?
I'm 172 cm tall and inseam lenght was something like 78cm.
In this case, looking at sizing table/recommendation for Ridley CC, which is more relevant, rider hight or inseam lenght?
Frame Size Rider Height (cm) Inside Leg (cm)
41cm 155 67 - 78
48cm 170 78 - 81
50cm 173 81 - 85
Would you recommend going for 48cm or towards 50cm frame?
I would imagine that the difference is not too big, but then again buying blindly from net and possibly spending even ~2000€ I would prefer having bike as optimal as possible.
My current MTB from 2003 (Kona Kikapu) is of size 18" and it feels just slightly oversized for me.
I will most likely start riding regularly from home to work (~15km one way) so if weather is not totally awful or not too sophisticated meetings expected early morning I'll be propably "collecting" ~100-150kms a week and as I live in Finland there will be some winter riding included = spiketyres must fit in including mudcovers etc.
I hope I can find some dealers which would have somewhat correctly sized frames available for me to test, but quite often the demo bikes are for cyclists of size 176-190cm or something similar, it's not fun testing oversized bike and then only hoping the smaller frame suits well.
Drop me some comments if you would clearly recommend certain sizes.
I'm into CC with disc breaks, and preferably a bit better set of derailleurs and so on (ultegra or 105 minimum + Avid BB7) and so on, haven't had SRAM ever, but it's not totally out of question.
I'm not so worried about bike brand, but rather more interested that the geometry suits well for shorter driver.
