    Empella!

    Okay, I am pretty excited about this bike!

    I like the handling and lightness very much. And the tires (tufo tubular clinchers)!

    What Tufos are those? They look like Prestige but in blue. I've never seen them in anything but red.

    Thanks, Tak962.

    The "Empella" size is 59 but the seat tube is 55 ctc and the top tube is 56 ctc (at least that's what the spec. listed; I have not measured it).

    The Tufos are elite 30's.

    I purchased the frame/fork and tires from cyclocrossworld.com

    How tall are you, your inseam etc. I had a 58 that was too small and sold it, but was thinking of going to the 59 later. How much does it weigh?

    fit / weight

    I'm 5 ft. 11 inches. Inseam about 34 inches (87cm).

    It weights 19 lbs. as shown in the pics. (pedals included)

    If I could ride up to the level of the bike, I would be golden.

    later!

    Just finished building my first CX bike and took it for a ride tonight:



    It's a crappy pic but the sun had just set and I didn't want to take a picture of it in my garage.

    More pics here: https://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/XR800

    I took it for a nice little singletrack / asphalt loop. There was some steep stuff so I tried dismounts, throwing it over my shoulder, running, remounts. Wow, that is going to take some practice. I am running gears that mimic what I see other people running: 39-48 front, 13-26 rear. Tires are 700x35c Maxxis Locust CX clinchers that I was running at about 52psi. Man, I was stuck in the 39, mostly on the easiest four cogs in the back! I am not slow on the road, I ride a lot. I don't see how and if I'll ever use that 48. Maybe I should go with a lower small ring? More PSI? I will build some sew-ups and run those for races. I am eager to try some.

    The brakes were not spectacular at all. In fact I wonder if the Campagnolo dual-pivots on my road bike stop better. They are SRP Mr. Grumpy calipers with Ritchey pads. I got them on ebay. I wonder if my straddle cable angles are right? What do you think?

    The Cannondale is a 58cm '99 XR800 with Kinesis 1" Al fork. I normally ride a 60cm, and I kinda wonder if I shouldn't have gotten a 60cm frame. A run down of the parts:

    headset: cane creek
    bars: modolo x-tenos 44cm
    stem: ritchey comp 130mm
    post: ritchey
    saddle: selle san marco concor light
    pedals: time atac carbon/steel
    brakes: srp mr. grumpy w/ ritchey pads
    derailleurs: campagnolo centaur 10spd
    cranks: cannondale coda 175mm 39t/48t
    cassette: campagnolo veloce 13-26 10spd
    chain: ird
    shifters/levers: campagnolo centaur 10spd
    wheels: campagnolo centaur, 32-hole, cxp-33 rims, 3x 14-15-14 spokes, brass nipples (beater training wheels)
    tires/tubes: maxxis 700x35c Locust CX clincher / Ritchey 700c 35-40c

    It's a pretty budget bike. I am looking forward to riding it more and racing. I may race San Mateo on Sunday in the men's Cs.

    Are you racing that thing with a DA10 53/39 crank? I don't know if you've seen Kabush's setup - DA9 w/ Zipp Pave rims. Yours has a bit more money invested in the gruppo.

    here's my ride. just installed the spengle 3spoke carbon wheels, which is a true sin for me weight-weenie. but they look so cool and make for a very comfortable and also fast ride once the wheel got going....

    for int. races i still use my american classic wheelset though. it's about 1200g lighter!

    after building several chainguide devices that have never worked properly (most of our local CX races here are rather rough, more like MTB races, with fast descends and roots all over the place. most guys even compete with their MTBs) i decided to get this DMR guide, replaced the steel back plate with one made from 3mm alloy, and it's great no more chains dropping off.

    will post a pic as soon as i'm back home

    Manitou HT singlespeed

    Here's my frankencrosser... I had an old Manitou HT frame, and a wheelset with an eccentric eno from my road fixie. Found an old Onza HOLA v brake for the rear, canti for the front, slapped on a cross fork and some Nitto dirt drops and... voila! I think it turned out pretty cool. I'll probably have to change the freewheel to an 18 from a 16 for serious climbing.

    My latest ebay impulse buy. I've always wanted a Steelman but it was in rougher condition that I would have liked (some surface rust, frozen stem, etc.) but it's cleaning up nicely. I't came with 8 spd Chorus and I'll keep all the parts but will ditch the Dirtdrops (doesn't work well with Ergo for me).

    Whoa!! I remember that frame. One of the bike magazines, Mountain Bike I believe, wrote a big article on cross, and that frame was what the author built up to go race. He wrote all about it: it had that stem and those handlebars, and the Campy stuff, and I think he said he tried it built up with a cross-specific RockShox suspension fork too. The article was my first introduction to cyclocross.

    Never had any luck posting photos here (ha! not that luck's got anything to do with it!). Just downloaded some new photo editing software so now I can finally resize my pictures to within the uploadable size limits here......

    Anyway, this is an Cannondale 'Cross I picked up last year for a few hundred bucks. Was in pretty decent shape when I got it, but I stripped it down and refinished it. Looked like a brand new bike when it was done. I've got some very nice bikes but this is one of my absolute favorites. Just feels good....

    Here's a couple pics from today's ride. Temps in the teens. A bit chilly! But had a good ride. Nice sunset too.

    I hope these pics actually did upload.... Here goes....

    Well here is a picture of my trusty all steal cross bike that I bought at Micheal Barry Sr. shop (father of Micheal Barry of the Discovery Channel Team). Its about 8-10years old and has served me very well over the years. It ,as you can see, has all sorts of odds and ends for componentry but all are in good working order.

    Hey, how'd you do that?

    [QUOTE=racerx]Ok, look closely and you will see it started off its life as a hardtail Mtn Hiwassee. With a little work and tons of fun, I built my favorite bike I have in my stable.

    -Litespeed Hiwassee (I call it the undefinedundefinedMutant.undefined

    -Stem 3T Mutant 100
    -Bars Coda spec 44's
    -Shifting Ultegra
    -Braking Avid's V-Brakes with an adapter to provide sufficient pull from road levers to v-brakes. Tricky to set up, but stops on a dime.

    Could you pass on how you got the v-brakes to work with the drop bars? That would be a big help!

    My Cannondale Contribution...

    I just picked it up 2 days ago. Thanks to my work schedule I was able to take it out for a ride tonight, just before sunset. Stock 2005 Cannondale Cyclocross, 54cm. Look pedals are temporary for now. I will have to wait a few weeks for some 959's and SPD shoes. But right now both my 'cross bike and my road bike have the same pedal setup.

    Nice IRD.

    Too bad they dropped the CX frame from their 05 line up. I was planning on getting one later this year.

    New year? time for a new bike!

    Just finished up my Kelly CX. Its mostly set up w/Campy Daytona, with XTR cranks and Seatpin, Spooky brakes, and Mavic/Sachs front hub(depends onthe wheelset) Haven't had a chance to ride it yet, but the virgin ride will be this weekend down in illnoise. Sitting on it and pedalling up and down the street makes it seem to fit really well. Can't wait to get miles on it!

    Here is the Kona all finished up. I can't believe how hard it is to get the decals to show up. I photo shopped the pictures to death and they still look yellow. In reality the tires, decals, and bar tape are all pretty close to the same color with the decals being a little more yellowish. Here is a parts list:
    2002 Kona Jake the Snake with Easton Ultralite tubing
    Nashbar Carbon fork
    Ultegra shifters and rear derailleur
    105 Front derailleur
    Nashbar compact cranks 50/34
    Woodman carbon seatpost
    3T Zepp stem and bars
    SLR XP saddle
    Avid shorty 4 with Jagwire extreme pads
    Mavic Cosmos wheels with Michelin Sprint tires
    USE ring-o-star headset tensioner.

    Jake the Snake from the front end. The IRD long drop canti boss is worth every penny I spent from cyclocrossworld. The brakes are so much smoother without the tight bend.

    Here is a closeup of some killer pads. I skipped getting the Shorty 6 pads because I had a set of these Jagwire Extreme pads with holders laying around. Plus I liked the looks of the black better.

    Here's mine

    This was my first mountain bike. After about a year it went SS, then rigid. Now it's my crosser. After this weekend its going on commuter duty. Maybe I should think about getting another bike.

The tires on there now are Serfas Vida City tires, which are pretty decent on the smoother trails here in the DFW area.
    I've just ordered another set of wheels so I can finally have a dedicated on and off-road set and not have to worry about switching tires ever again.

    Note that it's a 42cm frame. Yep, I've got short legs and and a regular torso. When I straddle the frame, I rest on the top tube, even with the frame as small as it is. Perhaps I'm not made for 700c bikes. Ah well. Sooner or later, I'll get a custom frame built.

    The second picture... How do you guys like my fit? Nah, that's my total opposite (read - a TALL guy) goofing off on my bike.
    I'm surprising my 4'10" wife with a 42cm Cross Check like yours. What crank did you use including size? Is it a cross crank?
