Thanks to Ridley, riders will be able to do just this in 2010. Ridley has built a reputation as a leader in innovative bike design by responding to the needs of passionate cyclists who demand leading-edge technology and signature style.

This year it proudly launches its custom design website

Here cyclists can create their own custom design for any carbon Ridley frame. You’ll be able to choose from a wide range of colours to create almost any colour combination that you want.

The best design will then be painted onto a Noah specced with Campagnolo’s 11-speed Athena groupset and presented to the winning designer!
