    Just pulled the trigger!

    Just put in a down payment on a Specialized TriCross frame/fork. This will be my first cross ride after having completed my first season of cross racing last year. Will be building it up with Dura Ace 9 speed I currently have on my road bike and will either use American Classic tubular for race wheels or Hed Alp clinchers.

    I haven't figured out yet what type of handlebars to use. Any recommendations?
    La ultima y nos vamos.

    Congrats on the new frame/fork. Were you racing a mountain bike last year? If so, you'll notice a marked improvement.

    I like my Ritchey BioMax bars but if I were doing it again, I'd buy a short and shallow traditional bend bar.
    Pro rep, yo!
