A look at the custom Avia Troy Lee-Designed Ridley Dean.

Written by: Aaron Hersh

Avia is famous for their willingness to experiment with eccentric design for their running shoes. They applied that mavericky attitude to the creation of this gorgeous custom Ridley Dean. Troy Lee has designed special versions of Avia shoes as well as this showpiece bike. Kelly Kiovsky-Harper rides this one-of-a-kind bike with an FSA Neopro crankset, Campagnolo Record 10-speed drivetrain, old school Zipp 404 clincher wheels, Fizik Vitesse saddle, Oval aerobars and Cyclops Powertap power meter. It is spec’d with Campy’s outdated 10-speed group, rather than their current 11-speed line, because Campy has not created an 11-speed bar-end shifter.
