    Thanks! done...

    Updated! :D Looks like near-white-out conditions up here in Canada ;)

    Beautiful! What rack and fenders are those? Is your light mounted on head tube/fork?

    Thanks! The fender is from SKS-Germany (BLUEMELS) and the rack is the VEGA from tubus Germany. The front light (60 Lux, perfect for night rides) is directly mounted on the fork.

    Gorgeous bike too. Nice job being an early adoptor of the C-260 stems. The Ritchey headset spacers are a nice touch too.

    I was thinking there aren't enough pics of the white cyclocross frames in here so i better add another :p

    I've only got a few hundred miles and one plane trip on the frame but so far i am loving it. :thumbsup:

    I like it, especially the color scheme. 2011 colors, right? :)

    Yep! 2011 colors, just picked up the frame a couple weeks ago. I had been searching craigslist and ebay for a deal for a while now but apparently no one wanted to let a 58cm cyclocross frame go so i finally gave in and bought a new frame.

    Yeah! Nice bike Jeff! Cyclocross frame for road, huh? How come you didn't get the Road version?

    Swiss Cross
    The new Swiss Cross, fantastic ride, build parts are Avid Ultimate, Sram RED, Bontrager Wheels, bar, stem,etc

    Ordered the wet red post but it wasn't a good match. When I can afford I'll order a white WCS post, stem, and bar.

    Yeah! Thanks for posting that. If you get a chance, I for one, would love to hear your impressions of the ride.

    Thanks Dave! I went with the cyclocross frame just to give me more flexibility. I have dreams of doing some epic trips/tours so the ability to run fatter tires and the rack mounts were the deciding factors for me.

    A ti road frame is definitely on the "i just won powerball" checklist :D

    Yes, will do, thinking I'll do a write up thread on the bike with good pics etc.

    Good reasons. Cyclocross frames make for great touring rigs. I have one for the very same reasons. Enjoy, thanks for choosing Ritchey!

    Thanks for posting the near-white-out pic. I have a new build I'm starting that has ended up an almost total-white-out. I've been looking for some pics of white bar, white stem and white tape combos without much luck till I ran across your post.

    It looks good, now I've got some wrenching to do...

    My Pearl White
    So I broke my blue and white Ritchey doing a sprint interval workout and I got the pearl white as a replacement.

    I've had it built up for a while but really didn't like the way the black carbon fork looked. So here's the result. Not a great picture but you get the idea.
  • 01-17-2012

    Very classy build! Love the use of our new Classic components, and that fork is super slick.

    ianewk, what fork is that and did you have it custom painted? That bike is sweet!!!

    Thanks guys.

    I had a Ritchey Pro on it but wasn't completely sure how it would turn out. I had an uncut Easton EC90 full carbon laying in the shop so I used it.

    Believe it or not that's a rattle can job (primed then painted) and the stipes are colored electrical tape that I applied then clear coated over the whole thing. I had to sort of blend two shades of blue to get that color...it's not perfect, but it'll do.

    Here's a crappy picture of mine. I just built it up last night. Full Ritchey cockpit, Force groupset and TRP Euro X brakes. It now has fenders, lights and a rack mounted which I'll post pics of when I get a chance. I'll also post up pics of the Breakaway Ti road I just built up for my wife to the same specs minus the commuter stuff.

    The Breakaway Cross makes for an excellent commuter. I'Il bet you're winning all the traffic light sprints on that baby.
