Ok, finally trying to sell the Ritchey's since I haven't used them since the one trip this fall....

These are 2 Ritchey Break Away Cyclocross Bikes.
Size 48cm and 52cm respectively.

These are full size frames that break apart in order to fit into a standard suitcase (not oversized).
Great condition with less than 1500 miles (no rust/dings/dents - just a few minor chips/scrapes from use) on them. Ideal for someone looking to travel or cyclotour (they have eyelets, etc)

52cm is great for someone 5'4-5'10.
48cm would fit someone 5'0 - 5'5.

Both bikes are equipped with Campagnolo 10spd grouppo's w/ 170mm FSA alloy cranks and Ritchey stem/seatpost. The 48cm groupo is ~2007 Centaur with ~1000 miles. The other is slightly older with ~1500 miles and is actually named Daytona but it's actually the same as Centaur (campy changed the name to Centaur due to some trademark violations w/ Daytona). The wheels are record/chorus hubs laced 36h mavic open pros. Travel suit cases, extra parts, and pannier racks also included.

These bikes ride amazing and are virtually indistinguishable non-travel high-end steel frame. The frames alone go for $1300 each.

I'd like to sell as a set, but will consider selling individually or parting them out depending on the buyer.
Asking $1600 each complete with wheels, cases, racks, pannier bags, and campy 10 group.

Will ship pretty easily for about $40 CONUS (they're already packed up in suitcases after all :)

I have a pair and I have to tell you, don't sell them. There are many trips to take in the future and you'll be glad to have them when you take those trips. Travel bikes rule.

Very nice -- unfortunately just a little too small for me/the wife. Those pics from the San Juans?

I've got my Breakaway Cross with me right now down in Uruguay. As the OP mentions, the ride is nice and smooth and the bike packs and travels quite easily once you get the hang of it. I may be buying and selling different bikes over the years to come, but this is one that is here to stay.

I have a Ritchey BA with Campy Daytona. The Daytona was only manufactured in 2001 through 2003 and then switched to Centaur in name only. Love the bike. I have a triple for touring and have a Surly Cross Check fork that I will add an eyelet at the mid point of the fork for a Low front fork rack. In addition I have severa wheelsets for a variety of tires from 700c23 to a 38 for serious XC riding. Who ever purchases these bikes will have a great multipurpose bike.
Did you load up the bikes for any touring trips? Hopefully Italy or CH next summer.

I don't see head tube length or steerer tube length on the geometry chart, just:

Frame Size (cm.)
Top Tube
Seat Tube
Seat Tube Angle
Head Tube Angle

headtube is 9cm on the 52cm and about ~8 on the 48
lots of steerer on both (about 3in steerer tube left on both forks since i never really cut them down too far and just stacked spacers on top of the stem).

UPDATE: 52cm is pending sale.
48cm is still available.

happy to part out the 48cm as well if someone wants just the frameset and case.
