    My Crux Disc Build

    So far I have opened the specialized box, drooled and weighed everything the frameset comes with.
    This is a 58CM. The seatpost is the first thing to be upgraded.

    Yeah, my seatpost made its way into the booty bin real quick.

    What are your plans?

    FSA Gossamer Crankset with the BB30 Spacers the frameset came with.
    I installed the BB and headset bearings with my hands and a couple taps from my rubber mallet! I thought that was a little odd...

    I'm running 1X10 with mine.

    I'd like to get a Beer eccentric BB so I can run it SS. With an alternate chain/wheelset I can have two bikes.

    Also, I was thinking about red accents. I'm using PRO grey/red grips. They're a nice touch. I tossed the boatanchor and use an S-Works post...but if I could do it again I might consider a red post, like this;

    That is very cool. I'm also a size 58cm so I'm curious to what your final weight will look like. Please keep us updated! I personally ended up getting a Specialized Tricross in 58cm and have a total weight of 22.5 lbs with 23mm tires.

    Updates: Weight right now is 21lbs with the big pedals and water bottle cages. I plan to get it down to 19 with or without tubulars for racing.

    looks nice man! I looked at Specialized as my last hope for a disc race bike this season, but non fit me in this price range. sucks. what I get for having a short stalky build.

    Can't wait for a disc cx rig, but don't wanna pull plug for cable disc. Hopefully Formula will get a lightweight hydro setup dialed and on the market before season begins.

    as many haters there are out there for disc CX bikes, coming from the MTB world they make a world of difference to me. shop manager told me it'll probably be another few years before I could get into a disc CX bike. not enough options out yet for what I can fit on.

    Hi, remember to remove the warning label... it distracts from the look
