    Thanks, sorry for the slow response, don't come on here too often.

    I did buy the frames as a leftover 2015 and built it up. I had a wheelset and a crank...I just needed to find a frame to fit. :)

    Here is my KHS CX 550. Only the seat and seat post are not stock. The bike is 17.1 lbs without pedals and cages. Still under 18 lbs as shown.

    I bought a cheapo cross bike just to see how I liked it. I've done just road and MTB without ever really trying gravel roads or anything of the sort. I'm at work 26 weeks a year in southern NM with hundreds of miles of gravel roads asking to be ridden so I picked this up playing around on the trails near home I like it. Real tests will happen next week when I head back out and take it for some longer rides. Stock with 5800/trp spyre but I've got a compact 5800 crankset laying around that'll probably go on it too. Put a fyzk saddle on it to try but in the 8 miles I've ridden it I don't like it so most likely it's going back and I'll buy another of my old favorite selle italia flite.

    Brought it home today. Super short ride around town but I can tell it's going to be a great bike and a load of fun this summer...

    Finally got my Crockett built. Some screwy health issues are going to limit any intense riding for the time being. I'll work on final fit tomorrow. Attachment 314226

    This is My New gravel Rig. 2015 Fuji Altamira CX 1.3. Very nice bike equipped with all Sram force , Hydraulic Brakes, 1X11, and full carbon frame and fork. Weighs in at 19.4 lbs. Not bad for a gravel Rig. It was too good of a deal on Ebay I couldn't pass it up.Attachment 315602

    Picked up my new 2016 Crux Elite on Saturday and got in a quick gravel ride sunday. I custom cut some 3M clear bra and wrapped the downtube, top tube, head tube near the cables, and the front of each fork leg. Figure it'll keep the paint nice after cross season and lots of gravel ride impacts. Then threw on a lighter stem I had laying around, plus a 11-36 cassette to replace the 11-32 so I can get up the long gravel hills we have around the area. Can't wait to get on a cross course this season!

    I put racks on it for a camping trip this week. In the picture I have 29 x 2.1's on it, but I usually rock some 40's on it.

    First geared, legit cross rig. A lot of fun on the road (I'm a MTBer first), and can't wait to race it next weekend. I raced a bit in SSCX years ago, so I'm looking forward to more suffering!

    Installed the Gevenalle Burd derailleur and pulleys and have had excellent results so far.
    40mm Maxxis Ramblers for our non-muddy races.

    Tig, How did you like those Maxxis Ramblers? I love them on dry, bumpy CX courses.

    They were perfect in the dry dirt and crushed gravel sections. The 40mm size has great traction on off-camber climbs, but I think they were slow in the thick grass. I didn't set them up tubeless since I use the wheels for every day road riding, but at 45psi rear & 38psi front, they worked well with tubes. I'd certainly use them for gravel.

    I have a 100% sand (mostly packed along the water line) race on the beach in December, and these should be the best option for me.
