    Cooper CX

    My Cooper CX arrived last night and i started putting it together. So excited to ride this when completed.
    Will be built with:
    Ultegra Di2
    Lynskey Carbon CX fork
    Shimano hydraulic disc brakes
    Stans Grail wheels

    Is it just a cooper finish?

    Cooper CX

    Here is a pic from last weekend. Haven't had much time to work on it this week bit can't wait to get this completed.
    Still need to:
    Get the steerer tube cut
    Adjust seat, brifters
    Wrap the handlebars
    bleed brakes one more time
    put on accessories (Garmin mount, speed/cadence sensor etc)

    Go Ride!!

    Yeah, when I first started looking at hydro brake sets the cost seemed really high.
    I did get mine on sale at Competitive Cyclist as a set (levers, tubing and calipers) for $400. The calipers are usually $40-$50 each from what I have found. Backing that out of the cost of the calipers makes the levers between $300 to $320 which is about $60 more than the cable version Di2 levers.
    Thats how I talked myself into it anyways. 

    That's a sweet build! I am looking to build almost exactly the same minus the Di2. Did you request no decals? I would love to hear your thoughts on how it rides/feels. What you are comparing it too.

    Thanks, Tom

    Yes, when ordering the bike I requested the decals to be put into the box. Just not a fan of decals in general. Painted logos I can deal with.

    It rides very well. Haven't had it in gravel yet though. I have about 150 miles on it with road tires. On the first ride I had the tire pressure the same as I run on my Domane and it was a bit harsh (100psi). For the next ride I did 90psi and it was much better. So much in fact that I rode it on a 71 mile ride with 4k' of climbing the next day and enjoyed it. This bike rides well as a road bike and cannot wait to get it on some gravel here in a week or two.

    That's the Pro Cross frame or the Cooper CX? The DS chain stay makes me think it's the Pro Cross.

    Its the Cooper CX. The Pro Cross has a twisted down tube and a triangular shaped cross tube.

    I just read this thread from the top again and realized that you have the small frame. I am trying to decide between the small and medium. I'm 5'7" and I feel like I could go with either frame, but the stand over on the medium has me a little nervous. Would you care to share how the small fits you? Thanks!

    Before buying I was in the same place you are. the sales rep at Lynskey told me I needed a small frame and I thought there was no way.. Once i compared the dims to the dims of my Domane I realized they were right. I even called them back to discuss hoping to get a different answer but they reassured me that was correct. They also promised that if the bike didn't fit well they would swap it out if needed.

    Long story short - the small frame fits me well.
