    Cool. I just picked up one of these frames. Everything is together except for wheels. Looking to find some this weekend at the local Swap Meet. If not, I will be building some soon.

    Wow, I absolutely love that bike. Well done. I love the versatility a bike like that can offer.

    I don't like crosstop levers, but that's just my prefference.

    Just installed some Rival controls and 10sp drivetrain, really like the feel and shifting compared to the old Shimano stuff.

    rkj- thx, I use the top levers a lot actually, mostly on the trails as the more upright position feels better than on the hoods or drops.

    Mr pink- nice ride!, let's see some more MBP's

    On my CX bike, I've got a nice tall stack of spacers under my stem which allows me to use the drops very comfortably. I like that best, as it is easy to use the STI shift levers in addition to getting good grip on the brake levers.

    I don't really need my CX bike to have a super aerodynamic riding position.

    MBP gets updated

    New Salsa bars/stem, also new cross top levers for 31.8 standard, and fresh bar tape. PRM bars and Moto 2 stem, love the bars they are wider, less reach and modern shape to allow for a nice transition to the hoods.

    Also installed some Yokozuna compressionless brake housing/cables per a post I saw on this forum. Holy crap do they make a diff in brake power!, my old Avid BB7 roads honestly feel a lot like hydro's now. I would def recommend them if you have mech discs on your cross bike. The housing is harder and stiffer than anything else I've used, my cutters barely made it thru em.

    New rubber yeah!

    Schwalbe Smart Sam 40's, these are the best overall tires I've found for my setup based on-volume, weight, rolling resistance, traction, tubeless setup, and they are priced reasonable.

    I'm riding Smart Sams in 35c flavour and they are absolutely brilliant! Tons of grip on every surface and they're predictable on the road too.

    Very nice build.

    Hey thx, this is my 3rd set of Smart sams, I have tried other tires but keep coming back to these. For me, something in a true 42c size with a tad more knobbage would be perfect but these are damn close.
