    Decided to make mine a single this year. This my commuter really, but I use it to screw around on the trails on the way to and from work. Upgraded over the winter with a bonty fork, avid disks, FSA RD 460 wheelset, FSA cockpit, and conti speedking tires, which I'm I haven't tried yet.



    Using what's on hand, plus a Rennen Rollenlager, I'm running 46/20.

    New (to me) Sachs!!

    Just picked up this frame/fork from a guy on Serrota Forum last week & finished the build late last night... Many of the parts came from my 2006 Lemond Poprad which was sacraficed for this project... (anyone need a like new Poprad F/F/HS size 57????)

    Have not even had a chance for a ride yet, but plan to give it a good break-in over the next 1.5 week of Vacation!!!!

    Nice ride!

    Did you build that one yourself? I like the frame and the build (though I can't tell what kind of seatpost it is).

    Nahhhh, that's what she was made for... And yes I'm a framebuilder.

    Build is:

    Record Headset
    Ritchey WCS 130 stem
    Deda 215 DD
    DA-9 lever
    DA 7401 aero lever
    Paul Cx levers
    DA-9 crankset with Ultegra BB
    Sugino 42t ring with Spot chainguard and N-gear Jumpstop
    Ultegra-9 rear Derailleur (been WW tuned )
    DA 12x27 cassette
    DA 9 chain
    Pauls Neo Retro's front and rear
    DA 7410 Seatpin
    Regal Saddle
    XTR 970 pedals (haven't tried them yet (waiting for new shoes), long time ATAC user)

    Wheels are sweet Joe Young-laced Ultegra hubs to Velocity rims with Challenge Grifo's. Nothing exotic, but they are bombproof and easily replaceable and that's what counts in cross...

    Should be a solid race bike for this season.

    It's just around the corner ehh...

    9,1kg and I hope it will go fast on this autumns races. Will change a few things when I get a little more money to get it lighter too.

    no idea but, yes, that is a cyclocross bike - although the U(nion) of C(ycling) I(mbeciles) would beg to differ

    The wheels are fairly heavy but I did ask for super bomb proof. The rest of the components were chosen for utility and durability rather than E.L.S.

    At a guess:
    with all the extra bits and the power cranks >10kg
    with the d-power cranks and without the extras <10kg
    shameless POWERCRANKS plug

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!
