Ritchey's original Break-Away was a game changer for many traveling cyclists, and now with this Carbon Break-Away Frameset, convenience doesn't come at the cost of performance. Using special couplers, this full carbon frame's front and rear triangles can be separated for packing into the included 26.5" x 31" suitcase, and the carbon has been spec'd so that it's no less robust than the classic steel design. Clearance for 28 mm tires means it can tackle the occasional gravel or dirt road while Ritchey's classic geometry ensures the bike stays as spirited as its rider.
Includes fully padded travel case.

Sturdy, stable, couplers don't affect ride or handling
I picked this up when it was on special and built it up using parts I had on hand, hence the high value rating. I'm very pleased with the result. On the road, you can't tell it's a travel bike. The bike packs down to a compact size, although the packingunpacking process takes some practice. My one complaint is with the shift cables. You have to unscrew the cable adjusters to remove the handlebars. It's difficult to screw the adjusters back in, and you have to readjust both derailleurs after assembly. Overall, the quality exceeded my expectations.
