    Your Cross Rigs: Post em up!
    Threw some slick tubies on until cross season. Can't wait!

    Size 60. 17.5lbs. Except for the tire swap and the egg beaters, this thing is stock, right out of the box.

    Still gotta dial it in and chop some steer tube etc.. Still deciding on cross tires as well.

    That C-dale is hot!

    I'm hoping to have my Hot Tubes back from Toby in the next week or so. It's been gone so long it will feel like a new bike ;)

    I'm hoping to raise enough funds to order another one sometime this year.

    The old bank accounts are still recovering from last year when my wife got a Vagen and I got the Hot Tubes :)

    For the price I would expect it to be light?

    Good point. Team bike. I couldn't have afforded/justified retail price.

    Vanilla- I got one of the custom Speedvagens on order. Got fitted by Sacha at the new shop the first week of May. Going to retire my 4 year old Orbea to pit/trainer duty.

    This is the setup as it appeared during the Snowpocalypse of 2010 and as it will most likely be raced this year. After the 2009 cross season I tore the whole bike apart and made it a bit more race worthy. The only thing I have left to do is cut the steerer tube. For the upcoming season I'll be running Challenge Grifo 32's on the primary wheelset (seen here) and Maxxis Raze on the spare set

    Last year's rig has no wheels at the moment since all the tubulars have yet to be glued, needs new brake pads and has had its pulley poached for another bike. Soon enough I'll get that back together and get photos up.

    New for this year will be a Blue Norcross, for which I should have the frame and most parts by the weekend.

    For now, half of my new wheelset:

    Those FMB racing Ralph tubies? I ran the 32mm last year and they were awesome. Thinking about snagging some 34mm's this year.

    Yes, 34. I only have one though (long story, but I was supposed to end up with a pair). I'll have it matched with a SSC tread on the back.

    I think that will be a good combo anyhow. Last year I ran that setup a couple times... and have actually used an SSC on the back with a Rhino on the front quite a lot. Just like on a MTB.... it's nice to have a faster rolling tire in the rear and a bit more bite up front.

    I ordered this titanium custom crosser from Jim Kish at the end of 2009 and have it set up for the road currently. It's outfitted with Campy Athena 11 and I just changed the brakes to FSA SLK cantis (were Paul's touring).

    I alternate between this and a Serotta cross. It has eyelets for racks so it can be used as a light touring bike too.

    That's certainly the idea, yes. I had planned to have a full pair of each (I also have a pair of rhinos and file treads) and would be able to mix and match anywhere from file tread to rhino and in between as needed, but I ended up passing along one of each to someone so we could both run this pairing rather than having to decide who gets what pair.

    I guess I will have 9 possible front/rear combos this year instead of 6. Not that all 9 will get used... I don't anticipate running Rhino rear / file tread front much :p Probably lots of Gripo front / SSC rear and Rhino/Rhino, with SSC Sprint f/r on dry flat courses and Gripo front / SSC Sprint rear when it's dry but more grip is needed.

    I guess I will post mine, it is nothing special just a Norco CCX, but I'm just a newb to cross. The wheels and tubulars came from jmoote's stockpile, can't wait to try them out this season.

    Posted this in the 2009 thread. Should have been here. Just put this bike together and have ridden it a few times. So far so good. Although there are some pretty standard stuff such as bar/stem it weighs 6,78 as pictured which I'm really happy with. Spec is mostly Campy Chorus, TRP EuroX carbon brakes, custom wheels on Bontrager XXX lite rims etc.

    Agreed, and as great as that frame is, its the fork that's doing it for me.

    Not a single comment on the Rhygin Metax yet!!! That is a seriouly cool ride imo. Of course a Kish and Seven like the two above are spotlight stealers.

    I guess I will post up my odd ball. Its a '10 GT GTR Type CXi. I am in the process of reducing the in your face red massacre to more of a tasteful red accent. Just changing the tires and replacing the MTB seat it came with helped a lot. Eventually I will have to post up its new look.

    Some of the features of it are a Kinesis frame, Easton EA50 cockpit, Easton EC70 fork, and SRAM rival drivetrain.

    The headtube is about 9" or so I think. I am 6'2"-6'3". I cant wait to put some tubies on it and get out on a course. It rides really nice, quite a bit different from my orbea.
